Coupfourpointfive has been told the Reserve Bank Governor Sada Reddy, a high ranking official in the interim government, was not allowed to transit through Auckland to Istanbul for the International Monetary Fund meeting on October 6 and 7.
Reddy has travelled to Auckland previously after his appointment as Fiji's Reserve Bank Governor.
We've been told Reddy was informed at Nadi airport that he couldn't travel to New Zealand because his PR has been cancelled.
It's believed that Reddy then went through South Korea to get to Istanbul.
This is the route interim prime minister Frank Bainimarama and finance permanent secretary John Prasad took as well.
New Zealand has banned all top interim government officials from travelling or transisting through the country as part of its sanctions.
It's also banned all Fiji soldiers and their families from travelling to NZ.
