He claimed in his application that he was not accorded common law rights to natural justice.

Defense lawyer Devanesh Sharma who is representing the Attorney General in his submission informed the Suva High Court, that the former Solicitor General was responsible for defending the Supervisor of Elections in a matter brought by former MP Niko Nawaikula.

The court was told that Mohammed Saneem had raised serious concerns against Sharma and that the former SG had only met with the Supervisor of Elections once to receive instructions in the Nawaikula matter.

Sharma also submitted that Sharma did not consult Saneem any further to get the background and the facts of the case.

The judgment will be delivered at 3 pm on Thursday.
