The United Nations Security Council has renewed calls for Fiji to restore democracy.
The demand coincides with reports that the military regime has begun shredding legal documents that relate to court action against the interim government.
Fiji was plunged into a political crisis when its president reappointed military chief Frank Bainimarama as interim prime minister less than two days after a court ruled his government illegal.
The Security Council says the repeal of the constitution and the delay of elections until 2014 is both undemocratic and a step backwards.
After the Security Council met, the current chairman, Mexico’s Ambassador Claude Heller, said Fiji should let the people decide at the ballot box.
“The members of the Security Council are deeply concerned about the situation in Fiji, where undemocratic decisions were made, including the abrogation of the constitution,” he said.
“The members of the Security Council hopes that fair elections will be held at the soonest possible time.”
