Fiji school principal sacked for comments

9:59 am on 7 May 2009

A school principal in Fiji has been sacked after calling for a speedy return to democracy.

Tevita Koroi, who is also the President of the Fijian Teachers Association, says he was told of the decision through a letter delivered to him on Monday night.

Mr Koroi, who has been a teacher for the last 29 years, made the comments in December last year.

He was suspended at the time for breaking the Public Service Commission's code of conduct.
