President of Solomons Bar Association to challenge last week's police raid on his office

The Solomon Islands High Court will this week hear a case from the president of the country's bar association, challenging the legality of a police raid on his office last week.

Ranjid Hewagema has already asked the court to keep items, seized by police from his office, sealed until the legal challenge is ruled on by the court.

At the weekend, High Court Judge Edwin Goldborough adjourned the case to Wednesday, allowing police to seek legal counsel.

He also ruled that all seized items be kept secure in court premises until the legal challenge is heard.
