Law Society hits out at Nauru government in deportation row

Updated 27 January 2014, 12:06 AEDT

The Nauru Law Society has condemned the Government's decision to sack the Resident Magistrate and deny the Chief Justice a visa.

In an open letter to the President, the society has expressed deep concern about Magistrate Peter Law's treatment at the airport by two high ranking police officers.

The society's president, Vinci Clodumar, has labelled their actions as political and arrogant, because he says an injunction on Mr Law's deportation, should have been upheld.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts
