The Special Coordinator of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands, Tim George, has thanked Solomon Islanders for their support and condolences after the death of an Australian adviser last Sunday.

Mr George says colleagues and friends have been heartened at the level of support offered following the untimely death of 26-year old Antonio Scriva in a car accident.

He says Mr Scriva was a very valued member of RAMSI's civilian program, who worked in the Office of the Auditor General as part of the partnership with the Solomon Islands government.

Mr Scriva was an audit adviser in the Office for more than 18 months.

In a letter to the Special Coordinator, Solomons prime minister, Manasseh Sogavare has conveyed the condolences of the government.
