A suspended opposition MP in Fiji says his court acquittal last week is a major win for him politically.

Ratu Isoa Tikoca was found not guilty last week of failing to declare his liabilities before the 2014 election.

The SODELPA MP had earlier been suspended on a different matter for the rest of the parliamentary term.

Ratu Isoa told Sally Round the allegation he owed the government more than US$45,000 was a set up.
