The President of the Fiji Law Society says one of the lawyers taken in for questioning by police yesterday, will have to return to answer more questions today.

Richard Naidu and Jon Apted from the law firm Munro Leys were detained over allegations they were involved in the anti-regime blog, Raw Fiji News.

Dorsami Naidu says Jon Apted has been asked to return to the police station in Suva for more questioning.

He told Morning Report the two were targeted because they have been critical of the interim regime.

"The law Society Members are not party to it, but they are known to be critical to what is happening, no rule of law in the country, the abrogation of the constitution, things like that."
