SUVA, FIJI: Justice Anthony Gates of the High Court of Fiji ruled today that the 1997 constitution remained valid and ordered the president to summon the Parliament which existed prior to the failed coup of May 19, 2000. The case is going immediately to the Appeals Court, which will have the final say. The case was brought by Mr. Anu Patel, an indigent farmer, who claimed he had been adversely impacted by the coup and suspension of the constitution.
