An anti torture protestor in Fiji has been released after spending a second night in police cells and enduring two days of questioning.

Jope Koroisavou was arrested after walking through the capital city on Monday wearing a placard with the names of six victims tortured by Fiji's security forces.

Mr Koroisavou, who is the leader of the opposition SODELPa party's youth wing, spoke to Sally Round just after leaving the police station in Suva.
