The CTU is deeply concerned by the detention of National Secretary of the FTUC, Felix Anthony, who was arrested at his office yesterday. This follows the arrest of FTUC President Daniel Urai who has been held in detention since last Saturday, 29 October.

CTU Secretary Peter Conway has discussed situation with officials from New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, "but we remain extremely concerned about the welfare of Felix and Daniel and express condemnation at escalating human rights abuses we're seeing in Fiji."

"We are calling on the Fiji Government to release the union officials immediately."
