Fiji pension fund and Attorney General back in court today

8:42 am on 18 July 2011

The Fiji High Court is expected to hear the case against the Fiji National Provident Fund and the attorney general brought by a pensioner later this morning.

The FNPF and the Attorney General are being taken to court by David Burness, who says proposed changes to the pension, including drastic cuts, are discriminatory.

The two government parties tried to have the application struck out, saying they were surprised the registry had accepted the application.

The court ordered all parties to file written submissions on the strike-out motion, and the matter is due before the court today.
