Fijian, Iliesa Duvuloco denied entry into Solomon Islands

Politician and well known nationalist Iliesa Duvuloco was last week denied entry into the Solomon Islands.

He was sent back to Fiji after immigration officials there found his constant travel to the country had no major purpose.

He was a politician who led the Nationalist Vanua Tako Lavo Party formed in 1999. Later his involvement with the 2000 coup saw him serve a jail term

His last public appearance was during the May general elections in 2006 where he again led his Vanua Tako Lavo party to the polls.

He left the country last year for Papua New Guinea and was also a frequent visitor to the Solomon Islands. But last week Friday, Duvuloco was refused entry into the Solomons.

He flew in from PNG. Khan says he isn't aware whether Duvuloco was sent back to Fiji. He adds the Fiji politician just isn't wanted as a visitor to the Solomons.

One National News tried locating Duvuloco over the week-end. Attempts made to get in touch with his family members and relatives also proved futile.

But a close family friend confirms Duvuloco is in Fiji now he declined to reveal his location.
