MP under investigation

NATIONAL Federation Party (NFP) parliamentarian Parmod Chand is still under police investigation.

Police director of criminal investigations Senior Superintendent Semisi Bokani confirmed a team from headquarters was in Labasa for this.

"The team is still investigating the allegation and collecting evidence as part of their investigation," he said.

"Once this is completed, then we can only move to the next step. But at this stage, Mr Chand is only being investigated and not charged yet."

Last Friday, police interrogated Mr Chand over alleged seditious comments made in Parliament.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed the allegation last Friday, but could not comment on the details.

In an earlier interview, Mr Chand said police questioned him over the alleged seditious comments not made in Parliament, but lodged by a member of the public.
