Palau Supreme Court
PRESS RELEASE #110
June 6, 2017

Re: Non-Resident Associate Justices of the Appellate Division, Palau Supreme Court

(It is our duty at the Judiciary to inform the people what we do.   This Press Release is one way to achieve that responsibility.)

Before the 14th Constitutional Amendment, the Supreme Court consisted of a Chief

Justice and at least three Associate Justices. The Chief Justice and the three Associate Justices served as Trial Justices. When an appeal is taken on a Justice’s judgment, the other three Justices form an appellate panel to review that judgment. All the Justices served both Trial and Appellate divisions.

There were three non-resident Justices who were available to serve either at Trial or Appellate division in case of conflicts of interest by resident Justices. The non-resident Justices were sitting Justices or Judges of judiciaries in the CNMI, Guam and FSM.

These non-resident Justices serve the Palau Supreme Court without compensation, except travel and lodging when they are needed to be in Palau for oral arguments. In case a non-resident Justice retires from his court, Palau Judiciary would compensate that Justice for work done for the Palau Supreme Court based on the same hourly rate of a resident Justice’s salary.

These three non-resident Justices were quite busy in the early days of this Judiciary. These were full time Judges of their court with a full docket and it was not always convenient for them to travel to Palau. But as judges of the statutory courts in Palau became law trained and became qualified to sit on the Supreme Court, they were appointed to serve on the Appellate Division of the Palau Supreme Court and give some relief to the only three non-resident Justices.

This was the Palau Supreme Court structure before the 14th Constitutional Amendment. The Amendment separates the Justices of the Appellate Division of the Palau Supreme Court. No longer would the same Justices be moving between the divisions of the Supreme Court.

The 14th Amendment also eliminated the limit on the number of non-resident Justices to three. This is important because of the inevitable number of conflict of interest of the resident Justices of the Appellate Division.

 

Since January 15, 2017 when the 14th Amendment took effect, Chief Justice Ngiraklsong, Justices Rechucher and Michelsen have declared a total of 24 conflicts of interest or disclosures of potential conflict of interest.

Fortunately, President Remengesau, Jr. has appointed three new non-resident Justices for the Appellate division. In addition to non-resident Justice Katharine Maraman, Chief Justice of Guam Supreme Court, retired Judge Daniel Foley, Intermediate Court of Appeals, Hawaii

Judiciary, the new Justices are Dennis Yamase, Chief Justice of FSM Supreme Court, Alexandro Castro, Chief Justice of CNMI Supreme Court and Kevin Bennardo, law professor at North Carolina School of Law.

Meet all of the non-resident Justices of the Appellate Division, Palau Supreme Court:

Six Palauan college students begin their Summer Internship Program at PICRC

June 5th marked the start of the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) Summer Internship Program. This week, six interns joined PICRC for a month and a half long internship. The interns will be mentored by PICRC researchers at the Center. During the internship, they will gain hands on experience in the field and in the lab. This is the second summer PICRC has offered this program.  This summer internship program is being supported by Blue Bay Petroleum Incorporated.

The students selected for this year’s internships include Maikani Osismereng Andres and Onglibl Diana-Rae Lakobong, Environmental and Marine Science majors from Palau Community College; Itu Bells and Kelutel Darrin Yoshiwo, Marine Biology majors from University of Guam; Kaylee Giramur, an Environmental Studies major from Chaminade University of Honolulu; and Yubee K. Isaac, an Environmental Studies major from the University of Hawaii at Hilo.

This six-week immersion program gives PICRC interns the chance to gain field and lab work experience, practice report writing skills and develop lasting professional contacts. The program also allows students to broaden their knowledge of marine ecosystems and conservation efforts in Palau. Additionally, as part of the Summer Internship program, the students are required to participate in a Cultural Immersion Program to acquire local knowledge to understand how Palau’s history plays a role in today’s marine conservation efforts and for the future of Palau. This year the cultural immersion program is run in collaboration with Camp Ebiil where the interns will work as councilors for 10 days alongside Palau Cultural Instructors.

The purpose of these internships is to help students fulfill school requirements and give them a chance to explore potential career paths. Through this internship, students gain a deeper understanding of current conservation efforts in Palau. It is the hope of the Center that upon completing their degrees these students will return to work in Palau and contribute to conservation efforts here at home.
