From , 4:05 pm on 23 December 2016

The United Nations human rights expert Mutuma Ruteere has called on the Fiji government to intensify its efforts to end racism and xenophobia.

The UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism has recently ended a six day fact-finding visit to Fiji.

He says the opportunity to discuss issues to do with race and ethnicity were limited and he called for political leaders to work together for a more inclusive society.

The Special Rapporteur spoke with Sally Round and began by saying what he found in Fiji.
