Fiji's former President Ratu Josefa Iloilo passed away yesterday morning after a long illness.

He died at the age of 90.

The Turaga na Tui Vuda was vice president in May 2000 when the Government of Mahendra Chaudhry was overthrown by a coup led by George Speight.

In making the announcement, Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said a committee has been set up to work with the vanua of Vuda in regards to funeral preparations.

Fiji's Cabinet sits tomorrow to further discuss this.

Ratu Iloilo will be accorded a State funeral.

He became president after the military took power in July, was deposed in the 2006 military takeover but restored to the presidency the following year.

When the Court of Appeal in 2009 ruled the interim government led by Commodore Bainimarama was illegal, Ratu Iloilo abrogated the Constitution, sacked the judges and reinstated the Commodore as PM.

He retired in August 2009.
