The Fiji Human Rights Commission says the Methodist Church could face prosecution if it holds another protest march against homosexuality.
The Fiji Times quotes the director of the Commission, Dr Shaista Shameem, as saying freedom of expression and assembly have their limitations.
Dr Shameem says when expressing views through marches or assemblies, the first march or assembly counts as freedom of expression, but if there is a second or third march, it would be seen as encouraging discrimination.
Dr Shameem says the first time one voices an opinion it would be seen as freedom of expression, but the second time one does that, it would be called "hate speech" and there could be a prosecution.
She says as the Methodist Church has already held a march against homosexuality in Nausori earlier this year, a second march would be seen as encouraging discrimination.
But the general secretary of the Methodist Church, the Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu, says the church not discriminating against homosexuals but trying to save them from sin.
