Did Fiji’s SDL make a submission to the Constitution Commission?

The submission from the SDL – the largely indigenous Fijian party, called for Fiji to be declared an officially Christian state, that Fijian be the official language of the country, for only indigenous i-Taukei to be known as Fijian, and for references to sexual orientation to be removed from human rights laws.

Despite denials from the party on Pacific Beat yesterday that they hade made such a submission, Radio Australia has obtained a copy of the document, which clearly states that it was made on behalf of the party.
