Publish date/time: 22/10/2008 [08:02]

One of Fiji's most senior legal figures has launched a scathing attack on the recent High Court decision which has declared the interim government lawful.

Radio Australia has reported that former Fiji Law Society President, Graham Leung said that it is cruel blow and has led to a climate of fear and retribution.

He made the comments at a forum at the Australian National University which has been chaired by the Australian Government's Pacific Affairs Parliamentary Secretary, Duncan Kerr.

Leung said he believes that the court decision in Fiji has inflicted some serious blows, if not grievous to the fabric of the constitution.

Meanwhile Interim Prime Minister, Commodore Bainimarama said Leung should stop lying to the people.
