A MAN facing sedition charges alleged he was threatened by police.

Jagath Karunaratne told Acting Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili that he was asked to sign the charge sheet yesterday and was threatened on two occasions by police.

Mr Karunaratne and four others pleaded not guilty to a charge of writing seditious words in public places and billboards, mainly along Nausori and Suva roads.

“I was threatened to be taken to the army camp,” Mr Karunaratne claimed.

He said when he requested for his lawyer’s presence, he was told that the lawyer’s presence would not make any difference.

He claimed that he was told to open his e-mail account and when he asked if it could be done in the presence of his lawyer, it was refused.

Furthermore, he claimed that on one occasion he was threatened that he would be hung by his legs.

Mr Karunaratne said he had co-operated with the police.
