The former regime supporter, Father Kevin Barr, is reported to have been questioned by police after a march involving 200 people yesterday.
Barr's Ecumenical Centre for Research, Education and Advocacy group was supposed to start its march from Vanua Arcade to Civic Centre as part of a celebration for International Day of Peace but was stopped at the eleventh hour with police saying it was a 'national threat'.

There was a suggestion Barr had been arrested but sources say he was questioned over the gathering that took place at parliament house.
"He went to present his submission to the constitution commission but had about 30 people accompany him holding placards and banners."
Barr had told Fiji Times their march was called off despite them having a permit.
The paper says Superintendent of Police Rusiate Tudravu referred all questions to Barr saying: “When the permit is cancelled that means it’s cancelled."
It is not known when Barr's permit to march was granted but the chair of the WAGES Council, is now a controversial figure after resigning from his position about three weeks ago, in protest at at the regime's decision to put a hold on the 10 new Wages Regulations Orders 2012 until October 31.
Barr said he also resigned because the illegal government was allowing employers to dominate the 10 Wages Regulations Orders while ignoring the plight of the workers.
He told the Fiji Times: "The Wages Council made three submissions in the last four years seeking an increase in the wages for workers but it was deferred by the government every time the matter was put forward."
He also said poverty was increasing in Fiji.
The negotiations were being overseen by the illegal attorney general Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.
