An anti torture protestor in Fiji is facing another morning of police questioning after being detained for a second night in a Suva cell.
Jope Koroisavou, the leader of the oppsition SODELPA party's youth wing, was arrested after walking through the capital city on Monday wearing a placard with the names of six victims tortured by Fiji's security forces.
His lawyer Aman Ravindra-Singh said questioning had resumed and he was expecting a decision by late morning.
He said earlier the line of questioning indicated police were considering a charge of sedition.
"All my client was doing was he was simply exercising his right to freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom to assemble peacefully.
"Those are the rights all provided for under the Fiji constitution and also he was commemorating the international day in support of victims of torture."
Fiji media report the Director of Fiji's Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission Ashwin Raj met Mr Koroisavou yesterday.
Fiji VIllage reports Mr Raj said he was in good health, had access to a lawyer, was allowed contact with his immediate family and was not man handled at any time by the police.
He said it was imperative that Mr Koroisavou was not coerced into making any confession or admission that could be used in evidence against him.
