Two Fiji lawyers detained by the police say they were not harmed.

Richard Naidu and Jon Apted, of the Suva law firm Munro Leys, were taken in for questioning over claims they participated in an anti-interim government blog site.

Law Society president Dorsami Naidu spoke to them after their release on Wednesday.

He told Morning Report they were okay, but were concerned about confidential client information on their computers which were seized by police.

One of the lawyers, Mr Apted, will have to return for more questioning on Thursday.
