Police release Law Society president

Another local Fijian has been released by the interim government.

He's Dorsami Naidu, the president of the Fiji Law Society, who was detained yesterday for apparently leading a peaceful protest in support of the sacked judiciary.

Mr Naidu was detained at the Lautoka Police Station, but was apparently not held in a prison cell - as Fiji TV reporter, Edwin Nand, was.

Family and friends, along with other lawyers, last night held a vigil outside the Lautoka prison, worried for the safety of Mr Naidu.

Coupfourpointfive has been told Mr Naidu was treated alright and was released just after 11am.
