Reports from Fiji say the Permanent Secretary in the interim prime minister's office, Parmesh Chand, is no longer in the position.

Fiji media say there is confusion over his departure, which is believed to have come after a meeting with the interim Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama.

The interim government spokesman, Major Neumi Leweni, has declined to comment.

He says any official statement on the matter should come from Commodore Bainimarama.
