Fifteen Methodist Church ministers have been released on bail after being charged for allegedly breaching the Public Emergency Regulations.
The 15 were arrested yesterday and will appear in court in March.
A Fiji police spokesman says the ministers are alleged to have been found in breach of the condition of the permit that was granted for the church’s standing committee meeting last year.
Three other Methodist Church ministers are expected to be questioned later.
Eight other Methodist figures including church president, Reverend Ame Tugaue, general secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu and former president Reverend Manasa Lasaro have appeared in court in a separate case on the same charges.
