FTUC leader unsurprised at extent of Fiji government surveillance

Updated 26 December 2012, 16:58 AEST

The President of the Fiji Trades Union Congress says he's not surprised at allegations the coup installed military government is spying on a large number of Fiji citizens.

Daniel Urai's name is one of the 80 on a list of Fiji citizens allegedly under surveillance by the National Intelligence Bureau of the Fiji Police Force, which has been published on an anti-government blog.

The document appears to show that some prominent coup opponents, including politicians, trade unionists, NGO leaders and others are having their movements monitored.

Daniel Urai says he's assumed he's been the target of this sort of thing for a while.

The Fiji interim government has declined to respond to the allegations.
