THE NGO Coalition of Human Rights has called for the protection of workers’ rights and the release of workers and unionists who have been detained by police.

NGOCHR chairwoman Nalini Singh said they strongly condemned the harassment and arrests of trade unionists and stood in solidarity with the workers of Fiji.

“Workers and unionists should not be victimised or penalised for freely expressing their Freedom of Association and voicing their employment issues,” she said in a statement yesterday.
