The Citizens Constitutional Forum has pleaded not guilty to the charge of contempt of court filed by the Attorney General's office.

The case was today called for mention before Justice William Calanchini.

CCF counsel Jon Apted submitted a plea of not guilty as Reverend Akuila Yabaki was not required to take the stand to enter his plea.

The contempt proceedings arose from an article titled “Fiji- The Rule of Law Lost” which had been published in April 2012 in the edition of Tutaka, the quarterly letter of CCF.

The case has been adjourned to October 18 which intends to allow an opportunity for CCF counsel to meet with their Solicitor General regarding the submissions to the High Court.
