Fiji Methodist leaders to appear in court

A hearing has been set for four senior Methodist leaders in Fiji to face charges of organising and participating in a meeting in contravention of the Public Emergency Regulations in 2009.

Suva lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma, who is representing Methodist leaders Reverend Tomasi Kanailagi and Reverend Manasa Lasaro, submitted an affidavit with Reverend Kanailagi’s medical report, saying overseas medical evacuation depended on when he would receive the visa.

Other Methodist leaders facing charges, Church president Reverend Ame Tugaue, general secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu also appeared before Suva Magistrate Thurshara Rajasinghe last Monday.
