Fiji sedition case adjourned

4:31 pm on 2 December 2015

The Lautoka High Court in Fiji has adjourned the case of 44 people charged with sedition and urging political violence until Monday.

The court will then hear the bail application of 20 of the accused.

All have been further remanded in custody except Saimoni Nacolawa who was released on bail on medical grounds.

They were arrested in August for allegedly forming a paramilitary-style group.
