Two former Fiji parliamentary staffers claim they were made to resign over a video they filmed showing the prime minister shoving an opposition MP.

Shortly after the video went viral last month, parliament and police launched investigations into the incident.

But critics say the inquiries have been flawed and the treatment of the staffers vindictive.
