A new resident Justice of Appeal was appointed to the Fiji Court of Appeal this week.

Rajaratnam Kulatunga Shyamsunder Suresh Chandra was sworn in by Fiji President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau at Government House on Monday.

In a government statement, Justice Chandra was sworn-in before the Chief Justice, Judge Anthony Gates, and Chief Registrar Irani Arachchi.

He was appointed to this post on a non-resident basis late last year but he now holds the post of resident Justice of Appeal.

Justice Chandra is a Sri Lankan national and comes with vast experience in the legal fraternity.
