Chaudhry's fed up of the illegal "Citizen's Control" edict too

Radio Australia is reporting that Fiji's former Prime Minister and interim Finance Minister, Mahendra Chaudhry, has expressed frustration at the emergency laws in place since the Good Friday scrapping of the constitution. Mr Chaudhry is still the leader of the Fiji Labour Party, and is also General Secretary of the National Union of Farmers.

Last month he tried to organise two farmers meetings to discuss a number of issues relevant to the country's sugarcane growers. Permission to hold the meetings was given by the interim Government, but was later rescinded. In this wide-ranging interview, Pacific correspondent Campbell Cooney asked Mr Chaudhry why the interim government decided to reverse its decision.

Listen to the radio interview here.

Is Chaudhry next in line for the "detention and intimidation" once-over by the military regime?
