The United Nations has paid tribute to a Fijian UN Peacekeeper who died whilst serving at the UN Disengagement Observer Force in Syria last year.

Fiji’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr Satyendra Prasad received the Dag Hammarskjold medal on behalf of the family of the late Warrant Officer Class One Niko Komaiasa Ralagi.

The medal was presented by the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Gueterres to recognize the sacrifice of the late Niko Ralagi, who had a very distinguished career with the RFMF and had served in various UN Peacekeeping Missions.

Before his untimely death in UNDOF, Ralagi was a Senior Operation Warrant Officer at the RFMF Operation Cell at the Land Force Command Headquarters.

The late Ralagi is survived by his wife, Salanieta Lesumaimaumi Ralagi and five children.
