4:08 pm on 5 October 2010

Fiji's former prime minister, Mahendra Chaudhry, is confident his case against alleged breaches of emergency regulations will stand up in court.

Mr Chaudhry is due to appear in court again tomorrow after being apprehended last week on charges under the Public Order Act which prohibit meetings of three or more people..

He says he's merely frustrated at the inconvenience of another court appearance after he was bailed yesterday.

"I'm not apprehensive about this thing at all because I haven't done anything wrong so why should I be apprehensive about it. The facts are very simple and very plain. They can't be disputed."

Mr Chaudhry says he under constant surveillance by the authorities and that's led to the charges being brought.
