Fiji’s businesswoman and former politician Mere Samisoni has been released and was not charged after she was taken in by police on allegations of dangerous driving.
Fiji Police Force spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said Samisoni was brought in by K9 officers where it is alleged she nearly bumped a Fiji Independent Corruption Against Corruption (FICAC) vehicle at Toorak in Suva yesterday afternoon.
“Samisoni was warned for prosecution and released last night,” Naisoro said.
However, her New Zealand lawyer, Peter Williams QC, is claiming his client was harassed.
In an interview with Radio NZ he labeled the action as “just harassment, absolute harassment.”
Samisoni is currently on bail charged with urging political violence with three others including Mataiasi Ragigia. She is due to appear in court on August 14.
