Six out of seven suspects arrested in Fiji's major methamphetamine lab bust have appeared in Suva Magistrate's court.

The six have been remanded in custody until the 25th of June when they will appear in Fiji's High Court.

The half-dozen are named as Jason Zhong, Diane Zhong, also known as Yuen Yei Ha, Shing Sum Fok, Hon Kueng Lam, Yuk Sang Lui and Chan Ming Chan.

They have yet to plea to one charge each of unauthorised manufacture of a class A drug.

Police say further charges are likely.

A seventh person is expected to appear in court on Monday.
