Solomon Islands tourism minister Nelson Ne'e has been refused bail after a brief court appearance in the capital Honiara.

He was seeking bail on health grounds.

Mr Ne'e and the newly appointed Police Minister Charles Dausabea are both still in custody for allegedly inciting the riots in Honiara last month.

Mr Dausabea is due to appear in court tomorrow.
