Update: 2:01PM FORMER High Court judge Nazhat Shameem has been appointed Fiji's first permanent representative to the United Nations office in Geneva.

"Ms Shameem's wide experience in the civil service, her extensive legal background and expertise makes her a suitable candidate for the type of work and advocacy required of Fiji's representative in Geneva," the Ministry of Information said in a statement this morning.

She is expected to begin her new posting in Geneva, Switzerland later this month.
