No one is above the law: President
December 12, 2015 12:03 am
President Major General Jioji Konrote says the legal fraternity and the judiciary have the crucial role of vigorously guarding and strengthening the laws of Fiji.
Konrote made the statement at the Attorney General Conference currently underway in Sigatoka.
Harnessing the message of advocating the law within the bounds set by it and by the ethical code of the legal fraternity, Konrote says the Constitution and our legal code give protection to all Fijians regardless of their status in society.
No one can be above the law, the wealthy and humble, the powerful and the weak, the well known and the most anonymous men or a woman, all must have the same experience. And that experience is simple that they be called before the law and if evidence of transgression and they have the same projections of the law when they go before the courts.
Konrote says Fiji is progressing as a nation and a modern democracy with a stable and growing economy.
The two-day conference sees topics ranging from Construction, Planes Drones and Open Skies and Asylum Refugees and Borders being discussed along with footprints and cyber security.
The meeting ends this afternoon.
