And the Land Force Commander and member of the Military Council, Brigadier-General Pita Driti said not only Methodist church members should take heed of the warning, but all people because the Public Emergency Regulation was is still in place.

Brigadier-General Driti said the Government would hunt detractors down and make sure they were taken to task for their words or actions.

“Be careful and keep still, if you are one of them this warning is for you,” he said.

“Let’s work together and move the country forward for the people of Fiji.”

He said the Government would not tolerate any activity that would cause instability in the country.

He said the Government was working hard to take the country forward and the people, especially church leaders, should hold hands with the leaders for a better Fiji.

He said under the emergency regulation Fiji’s military and security forces retained absolute control.

“We have to move forward and the work of these people will not do any good for our leaders,” he said.

“Support our leaders and do not do what you might regret later in life,” he said.

Brigadier-General Driti said church members should know better and make sure there was peace and stability in the country.

He confirmed last night the Fiji Military Council would meet with Methodist Church officials today.

“We are going to meet today and discuss some issues relating to the involvement of some church leaders who are alleged to be spying on the government,” he said.

Brigadier-General Driti said there were important issues, including clarification on why the State thought four senior church officials were deemed a stumbling block in the church’s relationship with the Government.
