HNM represented Corruption Watch and the Right2Know Campaign in their successful review of the findings of the Seriti Commission on the Arms Deal.

The full bench on 21 August 2019 found that the Commission failed manifestly to enquire into key issues as is to be expected of a reasonable Commission. It refused to admit critical reports on the basis of a clearly inaccurate understanding of the law of privilege; failed to test the veracity of evidence from key witnesses, failed to probe uncontested evidence and accepted it as common cause; and refused to take account of documentary evidence which contained the most serious allegations which were relevant to its enquiry.

As such, the Court found that the Commission failed to conduct the task assigned to it through its terms of reference and the Constitution in line with the principle of legality and set aside its findings.
