IBA Comments 'Disappointing'

SUVA (Radio Fiji/Pacific Media Watch): The Fiji government has expressed disappointment with the International Bar Association and labelled its latest media comment as blinkered and one dimensional.

The attorney-general, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, made the comment in response to a comment from the IBA president that the international community should continue to put pressure on Fiji to return to democratic rule.

Sayed-Khaiyum says such remarks from the IBA president were paradoxical because on the one hand while he was claiming to be adhering to basic principle of justice, he had already prejudged Fiji’s situation without genuinely making an effort to hear from all parties in a transparent and unprejudiced manner.

The Attorney-General added that the IBA continued to misunderstand Fiji’s situation and said its report was deeply biased, lacking in depth, riddled with half truths and spin obtained from a few disgruntled lawyers locally and abroad.

He said it was wrong for the IBA to compare Fiji to Zimbabwe and urged it to take its cue from LawAsia.

The Human Rights Institute of the International Bar Association has attempted numerous times to send independent observers to Fiji.

The Interim-government has twice refused entry visas to the IBAHRI delegates, preventing them from entering Fiji.

Should the IBA again seek permission to send internationally respected independent observers to Fiji to report on the Rule of Law, will the Interim-Government again refuse them entry?

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum, will you refuse entry again? Or will you, as the first law officer of your country, stand up to promote and defend the rule of law?
