1:35 pm on 23 June 2008

Police officers in Fiji are transcribing an interview that was to be aired by Fiji TV in their Close Up programme last night.

A Media Liaison Officer Atunaisa Sokomuri has confirmed that investigating officers are trying to establish whether inciteful comments were made by Suva Lawyer Rajendra Chaudhry and Close Up Show Host, Anish Chand.

The programme was not shown and police say they will establish today whether the two will be brought in for questioning.

Fiji Village says the police claim to have received credible information from someone at Fiji TV that the tape contained inciteful comments.
