Fiji extends emergency rules again

11:37 am on 22 November 2010

Fiji has again extended its emergency regulations.

The regulations were introduced 19 months ago after a coup led by Commodore Frank Bainimarama.

Commodore Bainimarama on Sunday issued a warning to non-Fiji citizens not to interfere in the country's internal affairs, Radio New Zealand International reports.

An executive of American company Fiji Water was deported last week for acting in a manner prejudicial to good governance and public order.

Two days before the deportation, acting interim prime minister and interim immigration minister Ratu Epeli Ganilau resigned, saying he could not sign the removal order.
