At its meeting this week the action group said it was happy Fiji had begun the process of formulating a constitution and had lifted the Public Emergency Regulations.
But it also raised concerns about decrees enacted before, or since the lifting of the PER's which are seen as enshrining its restrictions into law, with the council's vice chair raising particular concerns about what he claims is the harassment of union officials.
Those claims have been dismissed by the interim government.
But one of Fiji's leading unionists says the Commonwealth is right to be worried.

COONEY: While the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group has commended Fiji's military backed regime for beginning the process of formulating a constitution to replace the one it scrapped in 2009, and also for lifting the Public Emergency Regulations that have been in place for over three years, CMAG was also critical of political events on the pacific nation, pointing out that.
