Palau News & Current Events

Land Court may close come February 11

Victim to a rider on a bill

Once again, another important legislation may fall victim to a rider and fail to pass either of the two   houses of the national congress.  If so, Land Court, an inferior court under the Judiciary may cease to function.

Land Court, established by law (Title 35 PNC, Section 1304), to hear and determine all land ownership in Palau, is by law; set to close on February 11, 2016.   Since there are number of lands still in the process of being heard, on appeals or still to have hearing dates set or even monumented, attempts to amend this set date have been made by Senate.
