This paper was delivered one week after the Court of Appeal decision was released, and was intended to provide background on the decision that would help to frame a general discussion of the case and the situation in Fiji for an audience that had some general familiarity with the history of coups in Fiji. As such, it does not provide a detailed analysis of the Court of Appeal case, or earlier cases. Instead it aims to provide a quick summary of the cases and the events that led up to them, and some key excerpts from the main “coup cases”. This summary necessarily glosses over complexities. However, it does provide a quick insight into the relationships between key figures and a short summary of the key points in the Court of Appeal decision. It can be considered a primer for people wanting to get a quick overview of the court decisions that led up to the abrogation before reading the cases for themselves.
