The 'obscure British NGO' the regime has tried to dismiss after its chair reported there was no rule of law in Fiji, is in fact credible and represents thousands of solicitors and law firms.
The Law Society Charity represents the Law Society of England and Wales, which have an estimated 170,000 solicitors and 11,000 firms.
The Charity was set up in 1974 and half of its board members (including Dodds who made the secret fact finding mission to Fiji last year) are members of the Law Society Council.
Incredibly, the regime has tried to dismiss the group and Dodds' findings as dishonest saying he has 'publicly spread false, outrageous and inflammatory allegations against the Fijian judicial system.'
We publish here Dodds' report so bloggers can read for themselves his findings and recommendations.
Readers will see that Dodds had good reason to keep his visit quiet and that unlike the regime, he has not stooped to personal attacks.
The regime has only itself to blame for the undeniable truth that there is no rule of law in Fiji.
