But first, Nauru's former Resident Magistrate Peter Law says he'll sue the Government for comments on a media release detailing why he was deported.

The Nauru Government says it's lost confidence in Mr Law to be able to hear judicial matters in a fair and equal way.

It says it removed him because there were a number of serious complaints raised by former governments, members of the public and judiciary staff.

Just moments ago, Mr Law spoke to Geraldine Coutts.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Speaker: Former Nauru resident magistrate, Peter Law
