Case against Fiji trade union leader adjourned again

12:25 pm on 22 February 2012

The Fiji interim government's case against the Fiji trade union leader Daniel Urai has been adjourned again.

The President of the Fiji Trades Union Congress has pleaded not guilty to charges of urging political violence and has been on bail since November.

Mr Urai's lawyer Navinesh Nand says his client appeared in court yesterday but says the case has been adjourned until May the 17th because they are still waiting on further disclosure documents from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mr Nand says he has also made an application for Mr Urai's bail conditions to be varied so he can attend international trade union meetings in Jordan and Switzerland in March and May respectively.
