MORE people have been questioned by the police in relation to an incident in Nadi two weeks ago in which staff members of the Sheraton and Westin Denarau resorts allegedly stopped work to discuss work-related issues.

Police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu confirmed a few others had been questioned in relation to the incident.

"Yes, we have questioned a few more people and investigations are ongoing," he said.

"The files we have managed to collect have been handed over to the Director of Public Prosecutions Office for advice."

About 300 staff members of the two resorts allegedly attended discussions centred around work grievances on the morning of December 31 last year. Last Friday six people appeared in the Nadi Magistrates Court, each charged with a count of participating in an unlawful strike.
