Military regime makes new appointments

1830 FJT
Wednesday, December 13, 2006

Update: 6.30PM Fiji's military regime has announced a list of new appointments made this afternoon.

Self-appointed President Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama confirmed that Fijian Affairs Ministry CEO Adi Litia Qionibaravi's contract had been terminated.

Adi Litia was reportedly ordered out of her office by armed soldiers earlier this afternoon.

Commodore Bainimarama's brother Ratu Meli, a career civil servant, has been chosen to replace Adi Litia.

Ratu Meli was previously CEO Provincial Development.

As well Rodney Acraman has been appointed acting Ombudsman. The office had been vacant since earlier this year when incumbent Walter Rigamoto, a lawyer by profession, resigned to go into private.

Justice Ministry CEO Sakiusa Rabuka will also be acting Solicitor-General after Nainendra Nand was sacked by the military government. This is until a suitable person is identified.
