Samanunu case delayed

The case involving the involvement of Fiji's Ambassador to Malaysia, Adi Samanunu Talakuli Cakobau, with terrorists in Fiji has been delayed. The People's Coalition Government was tipped of the attempt to delay the case over two weeks ago.

The PSC announced that it is setting up a 3-member committee to investigate the allegations. The team is to submit its report within two weeks after it starts meeting.

Samanunu left her post in Malaysia and was seen present at the Parliament Complex giving support to the terrorist George Speight. She was also one of Speight's choice for the Prime Minister's post in the Speight regime.

The PSC stated that the explanation given by Samanunu and the legal advice by the Solicitor General were given to the PSC for consideration but the PSC decided "to ascertain the truth" and under the PSC Act (s13), decided to appoint a 3-member team to do this. Meanwhile Samanunu continues to occupy the post in Malaysia.

Earlier a 3-member team had cleared Police Commissioner Isikia Savua of charges of his involvement in the terrorist uprising. It is believed widely in Fiji that Samanunu will similarly be cleared.
