ICJ denies claims that
investigators for Fiji

By JYOTI PRATIBHA

The International Court of Justice has rubbished claims that they had given the ‘okay’ for private investigations to be instigated against Fiji.
A Facebook page ‘Kacivaka na Dina’ posted a purported press release two days ago, stating that four private investigators would be coming to Fiji on May 27 to launch the investigation.
They further claimed that the investigators would be accompanied by their bodyguards and if Fiji does not allow them entry, UN peacekeepers would be recommended to move in.
In an emailed response yesterday, the information department of the International Court of Justice in The Hague said: “In reply to your e-mail, I have to inform you that no case involving the issues andor persons mentioned in your communication is pending before the International Court of Justice or has ever been examined by it.”
The press release on the social networking site also claimed that the Fijian Government was aware of the supposed arrival of the investigators, and had asked the International Court of Justice to postpone the investigations.
According to the release, the supposed complaints of human rights violations had been filed by a Sir Michael Wood, a member of the International Law Commission.
There have been numerous such attempts at such misinformation on anti-government blogs.
