Sheraton strike case now officially closed

7:14 am on 18 March 2014

The Nadi Magistrates Court has terminated proceedings against the Fiji Trade Unionist, Daniel Urai, and five others who were charged over an allegedly illegal strike.

The six were charged in relation to a New Year's Eve strike at the Sheraton hotels in Nadi, which they said they had no involvement in.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde, had earlier said that he had reviewed the charges and evidence and was satisfied that no offence was committed.

The Fijivillage website reports that the case is now closed and the unionists have had their confiscated possessions returned to them.
