Fiji military suspends judges

Army commander promises investigation into complaints of judicial corruption.

    The move is part of high-level replacements since the military overthrew the government

    "A full, proper and unrestricted inquiry into the judiciary" would be conducted, he said.

    The move is the latest in a series of high-level replacements since the military overthrew the democratically elected government in a bloodless coup on December 5.

    Bainimarama said John Connors and Anthony Gates, both high court judges, would be handling Fatiaki's caseload while he was on leave.

    Wednesday's suspension is part of a continuing shake-up of senior positions after Bainimarama disbanded the cabinet and banished Laisenia Qarase, the prime minister, from Suva.
