To'abaita Leader Retires: Justice Frank Kabui

Justice Frank Kabui retires from the Judiciary but his contribution and dedication will remain unmatched. He has been appointed Chairman of the Law Reform Commission where he will continue his contribution or service to this country.

Speaking at a farewell ceremony in Honiara yesterday, Chief Justice Albert Palmer spoke highly of Mr Kabui as a dedicated leader.

"His contribution and dedication to duty and work is unmatched. "The wealth of knowledge and experience that he has sought and given to the Judiciary, the Legal Profession and Public Service is immense," he said.

Chief Justice Palmer said many have worked under and with Mr Kabui and his commitment, care and professionalism that he brings to his work and personal affairs immaculate."He (Mr Kabui) is solid as a rock in his conviction and principles, and a role model for any budding lawyer or anyone intending to join the judiciary
"We thank him sincerely for his extravagant and generous contribution to the Judiciary and the country as a whole for the past 30 or so years," said the Chief Justice.

He said Mr Kabui's absence would be temporary as he still has much to offer and give, if not in the Judiciary, in government and the country. "This nation will continue to require the services of such a great man and leader for some time yet."

Mr Kabui, from Manakwai Village, North Malaita, was appointed as Crown Counsel to the Attorney General's Chamber on 7 January 1975 and later promoted to Assistant Attorney General in 1977. In April 1980, he was promoted to Attorney General, a post he held for 14 years until 1994. He was the Chairman of the Law Reform Commission from December 1994 to 1995 before appointed to the Bench in May 1998 as Puisne Judge.
His new appointment would see his continuous contribution or service to the country.

The Judiciary team wishes Mr Kabui God's blessing and favour on his retirement.
