Former Fijian Solicitor General, Sharvada Nand Sharma is now the Director of Professional Legal Training Program with the School of Law and Social Sciences at the University of the South Pacific.

However, the university has not answered questions on whether the position was advertised and if Sharma had applied for the role.

FBC News understands there was a person acting in the role up until last week before the appointment of Sharma took place and he is believed to have started in his new role on Monday.

The announcement of the appointment came this afternoon after FBC News had sent questions on the issue to USP earlier this morning on the issue.

The judgment was to have been delivered on notice.

This position became vacant with the untimely passing away of Nainendra Nand last year.
