Tonga's Supreme Court in Nuku'alofa will hear three causes of action filed by the fromer Attorney General, John Cauchi, in November.

Matangi Tonga reports Mr Cauchi is claiming close to 500,000 US dollars in special damages and relief for Breach of Contract, Repudiation of Contract and Constructive Dismissal.

He became Tonga's first independent Attorney General when he was appointed in 2009 but resigned from the position less than a year later.
