Update: 5:24PM LEGAL aid offices in Fiji have been allocated $2million for operational costs in 2013.

On top of this, $4.5million is being provided for the extension of the High Court in Lautoka as well as another $1million for refurbishment purposes of the Suva Court Complex and for other courts throughout Fiji.

$300,000 has been put aside solely for equipment and sound systems in the courts to make them more efficient.
