Deputy Chief Justice Ambeng Kandakasi, presiding at the National Court in Waigani on Monday, said the court's specific order had been for Donald's lawyer to appear and they failed to comply.
 
"The applicant has to come to the court and show cause why the case was filed in order to proceed, and they failed to do that," he said.
 
"It is by law that the application be dismissed if the applicant consecutively fails to comply with court orders to appear on the date and time set."
