Former Chair of Fiji Human Rights Commission To Start Practice

Interesting report in the wonderfully named "Coupfourpointfive" Blog……..

Revealing that  the former chair of the Fiji Human Rights Commission, Shaista Shameem, is opening her own private practice, according to sources.

They write:

Coupfourpointfive has been told Shameem has written to the Fiji Law Society, seeking approval to set up her own law firm.

It’s being said that Shameem and her sister, former High Court judge Nazhat Shameem, are miffed with Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, and don’t want to join the new legal order.

It’s not clear whether Nazhat Shameem, who was earlier rumoured to take up the position of chief justice, will join her sister’s practice.

This blog clould well turn out to be one of the more reliable sources of post coup gossip available.
