"Det är inte rättvist!"

Translation:It is not fair.

Could rättvist translate as righteous or is that a false friend?

False friend - that's usually rättfärdig, or rättmätig. :)

As 'right' and 'fair' are synonyms, why 'right' is not accepted here?

I wouldn't agree that these are synonyms. If a referee was not right during a game that does not mean he was not fair. Especially when he was not right on both sides.

:) But doesn't it confirm exactly what I've said: If it's right for me it is fair, if it's not fair for you, it is not right. One is never right on both sides as one is never fair...

I don't really follow what you are saying. Right and fair are not synonymous, and should not both be accepted.
