Fiji's parliament to return to original site in downtown Suva

8:22 pm on 3 March 2014

Fiji's parliament is being moved back to the Government Buildings in Suva, the original parliament and the building that was stormed in the first coup staged by the then Colonel Sitiveni Rabuka in 1987.

When the new parliamentary complex was built at Veiuto near the Domain in the early 1990s, the former legislative council chambers were turned into the Supreme Court.

The Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the return to Government Buildings will allow the public easy access to parliamentary proceedings.
