Fiji office stays open

FOLLOWING speculation that the Greenpeace Fiji office would be shutting down operations, Greenpeace Australia Pacific's Ben Pearson has confirmed the rumours are not true.

In an interview with Mr Pearson yesterday afternoon, the Greenpeace program director told this newspaper the organisation was in the middle of a reviewing process.

"We're currently going through just a little bit of a review of the office — looking at options going forward there and basically that's what we're doing," Mr Pearson confirmed.

"And we're certainly looking at how many resources we devote to Suva.

"That (the supposed shutdown) certainly hasn't been decided at all we're right in the middle of it all now looking at the future of the office."

He said although the planning and review was an annual process, this one was of particular importance.

"Every year we do planning which looks at where we devote our resources and in the case of this particular review, it's a bit bigger than that but as I say, we're really right in the middle of it so I wouldn't want to say anything to pre-judge it."
