But while Sitiveni Rabuka presented himself to police at the weekend, no questioning took place.

Mr Rabuka said there was an ongoing investigation into alleged breaches of the information act

This relates to comments Mr Rabuka made on a radio talkback show during his debate with prime minister Frank Bainimarama prior to last year's election.

The SODELPA Party leader said he and his lawyer met with police on Sunday when they brought a 'matter of law' to the attention of investigators.

"And they decided they would have to consult with their own legal expertise in the department and then we may continue next week, not this week because the investigator is out of town," Mr Rabuka said.

The leader was first questioned by police in November last year on the issue.
