    On 9 October 2015, 14 members of the Vanuatu parliament (out of 52) were sentenced to between three and four years jail for the crimes of corruption and bribery of officials (Public Prosecutor v Kalosil [2015] VUSC 149). Five were ministers, two others held Cabinet rank, and all formed part of the government. This In Brief summarises the three main judgments concerned and their implications for the separation of powers and operation of the judicial system in Vanuatu.
