Canadian forcibly deported from Fiji

From , 6:03 am on 6 December 2016

A Canadian woman living in Fiji has been forcibly deported just hours after appearing before a parliamentary select committee.

Karen Seaton, who holds a Fiji residency permit, was taken from her Suva hotel and forced onto a plane to Los Angeles without any explanation.

Ben Robinson Drawbridge reports.

This was once a new classroom... four new classrooms and a toilet block were built here at Nakoroboya school in Fiji a year before Cyclone Winston.

Scarcity of building resources following Cyclone Winston has made it difficult for non-resident landowners to build by the end of the year. Photo: RNZI/Alex Perrottet
