This comes after a judge dismissed a judicial review of his termination.

The Daily Post newspaper reports Justice Gustaf Andre Wiltens saying Mr Nalpini had discontinued his claims of bias from the Police Service Commission and Disciplinary Committee.

The judge then prevented him from proceeding with further action or reviving the claim on the same basis.

But Mr Nalpini's lawyer, John Less Napuati, has filed an application to have the Supreme Court judgment set aside and quashed.

He said he believes the court has erred in law and fact.
