Business woman and former Qarase Government politician Mere Samisoni and four others are in custody and are expected to be charged this week.
This was confirmed by Permanent Secretary for Information Sharon Smith- Johns yesterday.
She said the five were being held for allegations of incitement to violence.
“They are still in custody and charges will be laid early this week once investigation is completed,” Ms Smith-Johns said.
While speculation is rife that Ms Samisoni is being interrogation in relation to a speech against Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama and his Government, she recently delivered in Australia, Ms Smith-Johns clarified it has nothing to do with it.
Ms Samisoni was taken in by police on December 30.
