Law Council monitoring contempt proceedings brought by Fiji’s Attorney-General
19 July 2022
The Law Council of Australia notes that Fiji’s Attorney-General has brought committal (contempt of court) proceedings against a senior Fijian practitioner, Mr Richard Naidu.
The Law Council will continue to actively monitor these proceedings, with a view to ensuring that Mr Naidu is given a meaningful opportunity to challenge and defend the serious charges which have been levelled against him – including the opportunity to be represented by his counsel of choice.
The Law Council intends to arrange for an independent observer to attend the contested hearing in Suva, Fiji.
