Sources: Shameem and Mataitoga frontrunners

Two names keep surfacing regarding the appointment of a new Chief Justice for Fiji - Nazhat Shameem and Isikeli Mataitoga.

Talk in Suva this week was again focused on the two, with popular opinion agreeing that the military regime had them in mind for the key role.

The rumour mill persisted that both of the high court judges had been approached again this weekend and that they had both rejected the offer.

Sources suggest the interim government is running out of time, perhaps even getting desperate, as it works to announce judicial appointments on Monday.

The new Chief Justice is expected to be one of the appointments announced then.

The judiciary were sacked by the President Ratu Josefa Iloilo, after he abrogated the country's Constitution, over a week ago.

The attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed-Kaiyum, said on Friday the government hoped to name some of their new judges on Monday and to have the courts open again on Tuesday.
