An Australian man charged in Fiji with unlawful access to Air Pacific documents has been released on bail.
The detention of Shalend Scott, a suspended Air Pacific employee and union official, came after documents were leaked last month which showed Air Pacific hired a New York law firm to help draw up a Fiji decree widely seen as anti-union.
Mr Scott's lawyer, Natasha Khan, explains.
"Mr Scott was bailed by the High Court in Lautoka yesterday afternoon. He has to surrender his passport - travel document's that is - and he has to report thrice weekly at the Namaka Police Station. He has been charged for accessing information - electronic data - without authorisation according to section 340 of the Crime's Decree."
Ms Khan says Shalend Scott's next court hearing is scheduled for October the 21st.
