On Monday, May 13, 2013, cross-examinations of witnesses in the treason trial for Edison Kendi, currently being held in Serui, had proceedings suspended because the Prosecuting Attorney, Matheos Matulesi, ordered the police to confiscate cameras from any activists and observers who attended the hearing, according to a local activist present who asked not to be publicly identified..

The activist assessed that Attorney Matulesi’s actions were contrary to the  court proceedings. “This trial is being held as a treason trial, which is open for people to observe as a Public Session.”

For that reason, those people who felt intimidated have filed a written complaint to protest against the rogue prosecutor who did not do his job accordingly, according to independent observers at the trial.
