The father of Vilikesa Soko, who died after being raped by police while in custody in Fiji, says the prison sentences given to his son's assailants were lenient.

Eight police officers and a soldier were given gaol time of between seven and nine years on Tuesday at the High Court in Lautoka.

The father, Jeremaia Soko, told Ben Robinson Drawbridge that his family intends to pursue compensation.
