Fiji's paramount chief of Rewa province, the Marama Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa, is to reappear in court next month after yesterday's appearance on a conspiracy charge.
She entered no plea on the charge of disobeying a legal order.
Last year, she was arrested for releasing a statement saying that the Burebasaga confederacy and the province of Rewa were welcoming the Methodist church members to host their annual conference in Rewa.
Her statement came after the interim government had cancelled the permit for the conference.
The interim regime has meanwhile banned the Methodists' annual conference until 2014.
