FIJI COUP – Speight Wants More – Rambuka – Goff – OTHER NEWS – Elderly Health – Fatal Fire – Lebanon – Jill Dando – Line Charges – Super 12 Final

FIJI COUP – SPEIGHT WANTS MORE: The leader of Fiji’s coup has rejected outright the Great Council of Chief’s solution to the crisis. The Chief’s proposal would see a new government. Mr Speight has said his group has three no-compromise positions, the removal of Ratu Mara as President, the end of the constitution, and pardons for himself and his supporters.

FIJI COUP – RAMBUKA: Sitiveni Rambuka says he is not happy with the offer of the Great Council of Chiefs but says it reflects an attempt to look for the least bad outcome.

FIJI COUP – GOFF: Foreign Minister Phil Goff says that Ratu Mara holds the key to resolving the crisis within the constitution.

ELDERLY HEALTH: An old people’s organisation Age Concern wants someone to be responsible for the health and welfare of old people. It would like a directorate at the Ministry responsible for old people.

FATAL FIRE: A father, 25, and his son have died in a fire in a house in Maketu in the Bay of Plenty.

LEBANON: A day after the Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon the Prime Minister Barak has visited the border and has said that this is an opportunity for peace.

JILL DANDO: A man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of UK TV presenter Jill Dando. He hasn’t yet been charged.

LINE CHARGES FALL: The electricity line company Orion is to drop its line charges by 3.5%. The drop is partly due to a drop in charges from Transpower. Transalta says Orion customers will not necessarily see any impact from the cuts.

SUPER 12 FINAL: Crusader Justin Marshall faces a further fitness test today to see whether he can play in tomorrow night’s Super 12 final in Canberra.
