RAMSI Special Coordinator defends Solicitor General

RAMSI Special Coordinator James Batley today defended the RAMSI-funded Solicitor General, Mr Nathan Moshinsky QC, following comments by the Prime Minister on 19 October.

“Mr Moshinsky is making a first rate contribution to the re-establishment of the rule of law in Solomon Islands” Mr Batley said.
