Two senior fraud squad members, recently sacked by the Commissioner of Police in Papua New Guinea, have their jobs back for now.
Yesterday, the National Court put a stay on the sackings of the Assistant Commissioner of Police Thomas Eluh and Chief Inspector Timothy Gitua.
The pair had been at the forefront of investigations against the Prime Minister Peter O'Neill which resulted in an arrest warrant being issued last year - the validity of which remains with the courts.
Commissioner of Police, Gari Baki, told Radio Australia last night he would seek legal advice to appeal the court's decision.
On the 21st of this month the National Court will decide whether the pair should be granted leave to seek judicial review of the commissioner's decision.
