The Fiji Law Society members did not gather for a meeting yesterday as planned.
Sources say the Society applied for a permit to hold the meeting with its membership and the interim regime gave a verbal approval but not a written one, despite the Law Society asking for one.
The meeting was supposed to be held at a well-known resort on the Coral Coast that's hosted many of the Society/s meetings in the past.
Coupfourpontfive has been told that in the absence of a written approval by the authorities, the Society’s leadership decided to call off the meeting.
The meeting would have discussed the events from 10th April: the abrogation of the Constitution; re-appointment of the interim regime; the draconian decrees like the Administrative of Justice Decree that removed the Society from being a member of the Judicial Service Commission and the acceptance of positions like magistrates by member lawyers.
