Fiji regime denies Chaudhry's meeting claim

12:53 pm on 28 March 2012

Fiji's interim government has denied that it is already holding meetings on the new constitution where people are in danger of being indoctrinated.

The leader of the Fiji Labour Party Mahendra Chaudhry says his party has information that public servants have been visiting some settlements and villages in Fiji and holding political sessions with them.

He says no alternate views are being provided.

A spokesperson for Fiji's interim government Sharon Smith-Johns says no meetings are being conducted at the moment and no information is being disseminated.

She says certain political parties are trying to spread misinformation, which is unfortunate and unnecessary.

The regime announced last month that civic education towards a new constitution will run for three months starting in May.
