Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

The travel, accommodation and allowances of the 30-plus Fijian Government delegation attending the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Glasgow, Scotland are fully funded by various donors.

Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum revealed this during a talanoa session after he was asked by a former British Army veteran as to who paid for the Government delegation to attend COP26.

Sayed-Khaiyum replied that it was not from Government coffers.

According to a Government statement, Sayed-Khaiyum says different agencies, such as the Pacific Islands Forum assisted the team and other agencies including Oceans Pathway Partnership, European Union, United Nations Capital Development Fund and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

We have sent further questions to Sayed-Khaiyum and the Acting Permanent Secretary for Economy, Shiri Goundar regarding the donations and expenditure of the Fijian delegation.

Goundar says the Government may provide further details later.
