The Fiji High Commission confirmed the details of the delegation member's sudden passing yesterday.

"What we can confirm at the moment is that one delegate passed away on Sunday night," the high commission said yesterday.

"On Monday morning, the news was conveyed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Fiji who are now following the processes to inform the family."
