Fiji TV reporter, Edwin Nand, is on his way home, after spending the last two nights in a cell in the Suva police station.
He was in custody for 36 hours and is understood to have been spoken to by Major Neumi Leweni, from the Ministry of Information, and Police Commissioner, Captain Esala Teleni.
No charges were laid against Nand but he was taken in for allegedly breaching the public emergency regulations, in interviewing ABC journalist, Sean Dorney.
Nand was the first local reporter to be hauled in by the police, who this week successfully removed the last two foreign journalists from Suva.
Sources told Coupfourpointfive Nand was okay and just wanted to go home - and to have a cigarette.
