Two opposition MPs on Nauru are spending another week in custody as they continue to battle for legal representation.
The MPs, former president Sprent Dabwido and Squire Jeremiah, have been charged in connection with an anti-government protest outside parliament last month.
They appeared in court on Friday for their second attempt to secure bail, but the men do not have access to a lawyer on the island.
A pleader, who provides some legal support, returns to the island today, but a source on Nauru says the MPs have rejected his representation.
Mr Dabwido and Mr Jeremiah want a lawyer who is based in Australia to represent them, but the Nauru Government continues to refuse him a visa.
They have asked the Supreme Court to rule on their right to a lawyer of their choice, and will appear in court on Friday for their next bail hearing.
