The four people charged with political incitement have been granted bail variations but remain on curfew. There is also still a delay on their legal teams getting full disclosures.
Former SDL MPs, Dr Mere Samisoni and Mataiasi Ragigia, Semisi Lawake and Apete Vereti, were all granted variations yesterday by the Acting Chief Magistrate, Usaia Ratuvili, after a hearing in the Suva Magistrates Court.
The four, who were the last to be detained in December in under the Public Emergency Regulations before it was replaced with the Public Order Act, will now report three times a week to the police instead of daily.
Yesterday's variations also allow Samisoni to move from her Central Apartments to Muanikau.
None have entered pleas as their legal teams are waiting for full disclosures from the Director of Public Prosecutions office. Prosecutors have a further three weeks to provide the disclosures.
According to the Fiji Times, Samisoni cannot make her plea until the state submits phone call records.
It says Samisoni's lawyer, Samanunu Vaniqi, requested the court enter a timeline for the state to submit the phone records of the accused.
The court has heard there was evidence of calls made to several people but the Fiji Times says the Director of Public Prosecution lawyer, Ilisapeci Whippy, said while the police were given 10 cell phones it had only one machine to process the cell phones.
Whippy says it will take time to process the calls.
Samisoni and the other defendants were released from custody on bail conditions on January 4.
No plea yet by Samisoni
