New Zealand lifts Fiji risk warning

3:32 pm on 25 September 2014

New Zealand has updated its travel advisory on Fiji for a second time since last week's election and removed its previous risk warning.

The latest update from September the 23rd also changed the wording which said the Fiji government had a degree of influence over the judiciary.

It now says there can be limitations on judicial redress for decisions made by authorities.

In June, Fiji's director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde, criticised the New Zealand travel advisory, saying it had no basis and should be ignored.
