BREAKING: TV reporter released after 36 hours

Fiji Television reporter Edwin Nand has just been released - after 36 hours of quetioning by the Fiji police.

Coupfourpointfive has been told the journalist is relieved to be out of custody - he was taken in two days ago after he interviewed Australian journalist, Sean Dorney.

No charges were laid against Mr Nand, who was kept at the Central Police Station in Suva.

His employers and their lawyer were last night at the police station, trying to secure his release.

Mr Nand was the first local journalist to be taken into custody after the interim regime revoked the working visa of Kiwi journalist, Sia Aston, and her cameraman, and the Australian journalist, Sean Dorney, who was deported after he refused to leave voluntarily.
