Pacific Islands Forum head on situation in Nauru

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 30 July 2015

The suspended Nauru opposition MP Roland Kun remains without a passport and separated from his family here in New Zealand. Mr Kun's passport was confiscated six weeks ago when he tried to leave the country for New Zealand - he had been involved in anti-government protests. There's been growing concern about the rule of law in Nauru with the recent expulsion of members of the judiciary, the suspension the MPs, and the removal of civil and political rights. The Pacific Islands Forum Secretary General Dame Meg Taylor visited Nauru this week, where she met with Nauru's President, members of the judiciary, as well as the suspended MPs.
