Sentencing expected at half past three
The sentencing hearing is in the Fiji High Court in Suva, and is understood to be at half past three today. It was supposed to have been yesterday but was carried over to today.
The eight men are Naitasiri high chief Ratu Inoke Takiveikata, former Pacific Connex employee Sivaniolo Naulago, former Fiji Intelligence Services director Metuisela Mua and former Counter Revolutionary Warfare soldiers Feoko Gadikibau, Barbados Mills, Eparama Waqatairewa, Kaminieli Vosavere and Pauliasi Namulo.
The men, who could face 14 years in jail, were cleared of plotting to kill attorney general Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum (right) and Mahendra Chaudry (top right) but not of conspiring against Commodore Bainimarama.
