Calls for ILO to step in after Fiji unionist questioned by police
The director-general of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Guy Ryder has been called on to urgently intervene in the unfolding situation in Fiji.
The general secretary of the Fiji Trades Union Council, Felix Anthony, was interrogated by police this week about 'sabotaging the economy', an offence under section 8 of the Public Order Act.
Mr Anthony said the criminal investigation division in Lautoka spoke with him about the march in of the Air Terminal Services employees recently.
He said the police suggested his remarks about the possibility of a national strike would sabotage the economy.
