Taito's lawyer Sitiu Simativa Perese told Fairfax Media said the decision yesterday, which does not deal with the criminal charges but deals with process, was complex and precedent setting.
"Our instructions are to appeal this to the Supreme Court, the nation's highest court," he
said.The Court of Appeal also said they were not dealing with the "rightness or wrongness" of the decision to prosecute Taito
but whether they had jurisdiction to deal with an appeal.Taito
appeared on Monday facing 40 charges of bribery, corruption and perverting the course of justice linked to three year old claims he
gave immigration favours in return for work on properties he
owned in Samoa, Auckland and Wellington.
