This Fijian national gave this account to Coupfourpointfive, of some of the events unfolding in Suva, today.
He says it's a common sight now at night for police to be peeping into the living room windows of people they're keeping an eye on.
He says vans with plainclothes men - army officers for sure - are doing the rounds at night, using walkie talkies and mobiles to communicate:
Fiji Law Society President, Dorsami Naidu, was arrested by police this morning from in front of Lautoka High Court. We believe it is over his comments to ABC's Sean Dorney and Radio New Zealand. A group of lawyers and court clerks - a very large gathering - were outside Lautoka Court but were prevented from entering. The court house is being guarded by police.
As of this moment, Dorsami Naidu is still being quested at Lautoka Police Station. The other lawyers are waiting for him in a nearby restaurant. He was still awaiting to be questioned. The court clerks were also not allowed inside today to report for work. They have been locked out, along with the judges.
Edwin Nand - the Fiji TV reporter - was questioned last night and at 10pm ordered by Waisea Tabakau to be locked up at the Central Police Station. He is alleged to have breached the publication and broadcasting provisions of the Public Emergency Regulations. The cell entry just shows arrested under PER.
This morning, the lawyer for Fiji TV was told he would be released this morning. But later in the morning he was told to await further questioning. As of now, he is stil being questioned and was expected to be released this afternoon. Interestingly, he is being questioned over the Sean Dorney footage that appeared on ABC Television. They want to know who authorised the sending of the footage to ABC.
Savenaca Narube was given a termination letter last night. He was told not to go to his office and vacate the Governor's Residence as soon as possible. Soldiers were seen at Reserve Bank and it is reported Narube went to the office, but whether he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Barracks is unclear.
The director of public prosecutions, Josaia Naguilevu, was initially put under house arrest but we understand he, too, has been sacked. The DPP's office, next to Fiji TV, is under guard with no one allowed inside, including other oficers.
Justice Filimoni Jitoko is under house arrest as well. Thomas Hickie, another judge, was monitored through Easter, with an unmarked car outside his house at all times.
Fiji Times Western photograther, Jai Prasad, was also arrested, detained briefly and released. He was taking pictures outside the Lautoka Courthouse. A team of police officers were also sent to the Times newsroom armed with a search warrant to search the premises for his camera - the idea was to confiscate it and remove the film.
They refused to allow the Times newsroom staff to photocopy the search warrant signed by a former Lautoka City Councillor Councillor (lady) and OBVIOUSLY FIJI LABOUR PARTY.
