Five busloads of people supporting Grace Road president Jung Daniel Kim gathered near the High Court in Lautoka yesterday in a sign of silent protest.

The Fiji Police Force confirm they had no permit for a gathering in a public space. “They did not have a permit and the organisers were warned and dispersed by police,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police – Operations Livai Driu.

The group held placards that read “We need Daniel Kim”, “Respect Human Rights”, “Stop Witch Hunt” and ” Stop Religious Oppression”.

The protestors stood alongside the footpath opposite the High Court and cheered when Mr Kim was taken away in a police vehicle.

In a message posted on their official social media page yesterday, True Mart that is owned by Grace Road, said all its outlets Fiji wide would be closed for business for the day.

The same page carried live pictures of the protestors for about two hours.
