Law Society President to spend night in jail

Reliable sources have told Coupfourpointfive that the President of the Fiji Law Society, Dorsami Naidu, will spend the night in a Lautoka jail.

Mr Naidu was arrested this morning after he and other lawyers turned up at the court house in Lautoka, despite the President sacking the judiciary last week.

A Fiji Times photographer, Fiji TV reporter and cameraman were also arrested after they took pictures of Mr Naidu being taken into custody.

Also today, the military took over the Reserve Bank of Fiji with sources saying the Bank's Governor, Savenaca Narube, has been told to vacate the Government Quarters he and his family are occupying.

Fiji's security forces also took over the office of the Director of Prosecutions.

Frank Bainimarama's government has yet to appoint its own judges or to come up with a Constitution. The President Ratu Josefa Iloilo abrogated the Constitution last week, appointed himself Head of State, declaring a 30 day state of emergency.
