THE retrial of the conspiracy case involving 11 former jailed politicians and a lawyer will start today.

The charges relate to the politicians being pardoned in October 2015 by Marcellino Pipite, the then acting President.

The original trial was dismissed on appeal in April last year.

Three of the former jailed politicians – Moana Carcasses, Serge Vohor, and Steven Kalsakau  were not part of the meetings that led to the pardoning by Mr Pipite.

Those facing the charge are Marcellino Pipite, Paul Telukluk, Silas Yatan, Tony Nari, John Amos, Arnold Prasad, Tony Wright, Sebastien Harry, Thomas Laken, Jonas James, Jean Yves Chabod and lawyer Wilson Iauma.
