Sixteen people accused of sedition in Fiji have had their trial dates moved back to February next year.

The men have been charged with sedition and inciting communal antagonism in attempting to form a sovereign Christian state in Ra province.

The accused appeared in court in Lautoka on Friday for a preliminary examination of the case, where the defence was ordered to provide better particulars.

The case adjourned until the first of December for mention, and the trial is scheduled to begin on the 6th of February.
