Gordon Ward


Gordon Ward

Lord Chief Justice Gordon Ward was a judge on the Supreme Court of Tonga. He resigned this post in protest at attempts to ban the Taimi 'o Tonga newspaper, a paper unsympathetic to the government, a move which he considered to be unconstitutional. On leaving this post, he took up a new position as the Chairman of the Appeal Court of Fiji.[1]
