The lawyers in the Fiji Times sedition trial will make their closing submissions later this morning.

High Court Judge, Justice Thushara Rajasinghe will then decide on when he will sum up the case before the three assessors give their opinions.

Fiji Times Limited, Hank Arts and Josaia Waqabaca have pleaded not guilty to sedition while Fred Wesley and Anare Ravula have pleaded not guilty to aiding and abetting sedition.

It is alleged that Fiji Times printed the Nai Lalakai newspaper which contained an article which had content with a seditious intention to promote feelings of ill will and hostility between classes of the population.
