Suva lawyer Ana Tuiketei-Bolabiu has achieved another milestone by being elected into the Defence Committee of the International Criminal Court Bar Association.

It was only five months ago when she was entered into the International Criminal Court register as a defence and victims counsel.

In an election held on September 11,2020, Ms Tuiketei-Bolabiu was elected into the Defence Committee.

She was nominated by her colleague Juan Carlos Manriquez, a Chilean lawyer currently working with her on matters arising from war and violence in Northern Iraq.

“It was a bit of a surprise. The people who are normally elected on this committee are seasoned professionals with a wealth of expertise at the ICC,” she said.

“I see this as an opportunity for Fijians and Pacific Islanders to be part of an international organisation and prove that there is talent in our region as well.”

Ms Tuiketei’s inclusion in the ICC register was a first for lawyers and women in Fiji and the region.
