Fijian peacekeepers case adjourned
October 5, 2017 3:45 am
A hearing in a historic compensation case brought by former Fiji peacekeepers has been deferred yet again by the Tribunal Court this morning.
The home affairs ministry wants the court to strike out an application by the Peacekeepers and Action Trustee Association.
The Association wants the state to pay them over two hundred fifty million dollars for taking part in overseas peacekeeping missions from 1978 to 2002.
The association claims former peace keepers are owed in unpaid wages and allowances for duties performed under UN operations overseas.
Master Vishwa Datt Sharma informed the court that the draft ruling has been prepared however he needs time to edit the final copy.
The case has been adjourned to Wednesday next week.
