Ro Teimumu Kepa and another Methodist cleric detained

Reports are surfacing that the Gone Marama Bale na Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa was detained at midnight last night.

It is also understood that another senior cleric of the Methodist Church was also taken in at about 10pm. There are no updates on the four clerics who were detained yesterday.

It is believed that an open letter penned by the Roko Tui Dreketi is the cause of her detention.

The Roko Tui Drekei is the aunt of military 3FIR chief, Roko Ului Mara.

Meanwhile the Asia Institute for Broadcast Development (AIBD) conference being held at Denarau, Nadi was opened by the illegal and treasonous Frank Bainimarama. Reports from Denarau highlighted that no local broadcasting media chose to grace the event which did not go unnoticed by their counter-parts. Bainimarama defended his military regime's right to clamp down on local media freedom during his opening speech.

The only local broadcasting rep present was Riyaz Saiyed Khaiyum who is the brother of the illegal and treasonous Attorney General, Aiyaz Saiyed Khaiyum.

(Update: We are reliably informed that FBC Board member and ex-SPC media specialist, Yaminiasi Gaunavou aka YG is also present at this forum).

The pressure is mounting on Bainimarama's illegal regime. News of the Methodist Church leader's arrests have reached NZ and Australian media. It is clear that if the pressure is kept up, the people of Fiji will be confident that no violent non co-operation can bring the regime down. And what he forgets is there is a a world full of people standing behind Fiji. He must be very very afraid.
