Fiji Trades Union Congress (FTUC) president Daniel Urai's flight to China was delayed today as he was stopped at the Nadi International Airport by border police.

Urai was given the greenlight by the Court to travel to China for the ILO convention, however police at the border unit were not aware of the court order.

Ministry of Information permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns said the Fijian Government regrets any inconvenience caused to Urai.

“Daniel Urai's departure from Fiji this morning was delayed by border police who were unaware of a court order that he is allowed to travel,” said Smith-Johns

FTUC in a statement said everything was cleared before his trip as Urai had been given the green light for the trip.

“Our sources inform us that he was stopped after a call from the Immigration Department."
 
Smith-Johns said Urai has since left Fiji this afternoon.
