8:15 pm on 10 November 2011

A prominent trade union leader in Fiji, Felix Anthony, is still in police custody after six days but no charges have been laid yet.

His colleague from the Fiji Trades Union Congress, Daniel Urai, has been charged under the interim regime's crimes decree of urging political violence and was granted bail yesterday.

Mr Urai's lawyer, Navinesh Nand, says his client will enter a plea once he has been served with disclosure documents.

Mr Nand has visited Felix Anthony and says he is still being questioned by police.
