Fiji's NGOs cautious about meeting after arrests

From , 3:03 pm on 19 September 2016

Community groups in Fiji are treading carefully following the detention of six men involved in a gathering to discuss the constitution two weeks ago.

Opposition politicians, a trade unionist and Jone Dakuvula, the chairman of Pacific Dialogue which organised the meeting are waiting to hear if they will be charged under Fiji's public order laws a week after police questioning and a night in police cells.

Mr Dakuvula told Sally Round Fiji's NGOs want to discuss the implications of the police questioning, but they're worried about getting together.
