Sir Vijay Singh dies

Tuesday September 26, 2006

Fiji's former Speaker, Attorney-General, politician and lawyer Sir Vijay Singh died yesterday in Brisbane after a long illness.

Sir Vijay died after a long fight with cancer

Sir Vijay was the president of the Fiji Kisan Sangh for a number of years and was also president of the Fiji Alliance Party in 1979 and was actively involved in the formation of the Fijian dominated political party in the 1960s.

He later joined the Opposition and became a stalwart for the National Federation Party in his remaining years in politics.

Sir Vijay graduated with a degree in Law from the University of London and became Barrister of the High Court of England, Australia and in Fiji.

Sir Vijay was a close friend of the late statesman Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara and became the speaker of the House of Representatives during the Mara era in government.

His recent book, Speaking Out is fast becoming a read not just in Fiji but around the world.

He is survived by his wife Lady Maya Singh, son Vinay and daughter Madhu.
