SUVA: The original copy of the legal document of Fiji’s independence - which was presented by Prince Charles to the Fiji government on the 10 October 1970 - is still not found.

Government archivist Salesia Ikaniwai told FBC News the National Archives had been searching for this important document for more than five years – without success.

Ikaniwai says they have tracked down all the places the document may have been kept, and have contacted various government departments to try to locate it.

She says the missing document contains the Independence Order, which sets the basis for Fiji’s first ever Constitution.

Ikaniwai says they had to contact the International Resources Centre in England to get a photocopy of Fiji’s Independence Order.
