Fiji Law Society rejects interim government's People's charter

3:13 pm on 29 August 2007

The Fiji Law Society does not support the interim government's Peoples' Charter.

Fiji Village reports that the Law Society council says it's considered the various proposals contained in the so-called Charter for Change and Progress, but it cannot support such a charter unless, and until, Fiji is returned to a democratic government.

The notice goes on to say that it is only a democratic government that ought to implement the proposals and ideas that are contained in the charter.

The Fiji Law Society stated that if it took part in such a process, then it would be seen that they were accepting the events of 5th December 2006, when the coup occurred.
