Delay likely in the trial of the so called 'Nauru 19'

From , 3:05 pm on 4 July 2018

A lengthy criminal case in Nauru is set for further delays as the government says it will appeal a Supreme Court ruling that a recently passed law is unconstitutional.

It says it will also appeal the court's order that the government pay legal fees of the so called Nauru 19.

But that could lead to the case being stayed by the judge.

Don Wiseman has been following the latest developments and told me Dominic Godfrey what Nauru is planning to do.
