The Waigani National Court has dismissed an application by Paul Paraka, seeking an order to stop police from arresting him.
Judge, Justice Ere Kariko, made the ruling this afternoon, stating Paraka appeared before him "without clean hands," as there were serious abuse of court processes.
The application also questioned the conduct of the Investigation Task Force Sweep Team Chairman, Sam Koim.
Justice Kariko ruled there were serious abuse of court processes and there's no arguable case before the court.
The judge pointed out, there were two applications on the same matter filed on the 18th of September, before the National and Supreme Court which he was not aware of.
The judge says after issuing an interim injunction to stop police from arresting Mr Paraka, the file with the high court was removed.
He therefore, said this was totally wrong and went ahead dismissing the application.
Mr Koim's lawyer Moses Murray says the ruling will now see police investigators, carrying out their work without further disturbances.
Previous attempts to stop police from carrying out a search warrant into Paul Paraka Lawyers account, were dismissed in August.
His case relates to the payout of millions of kina by the Finance Department to the firm, when two Supreme Court Orders stopped the release of payments.
