PALIKIR, Pohnpei (FSM Information Service): May 21, 1997 - On May 5, 1997, the then Acting President Jacob Nena issued a proclamation declaring July 12, 1997, as Micronesian Law Day, and urging all citizens, residents and governments to celebrate it in a way that promotes respect for the law.

July 12, 1997, is not a legal holiday, as it was inadvertently reported. May this straighten the record. It is not a legal holiday.
