The Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific is concerned about a series of recent arrests and detentions of political, trade union and civil society leaders who attended a meeting on the Constitution on 7 September in Suva.

In a statement released this morning it said:

The Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific urges full respect for freedom of speech and freedom of assembly in Fiji.

A statement released by Fiji Police yesterday said:

The investigation into the five people who were brought in on Saturday has been completed and they will be released as the file will be forwarded to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for sanctioning.

However we continue to interview Labour Party leader Mr Mahendra Chaudhry as he had brought himself in today.
