Coupfourpointfive has been told Peceli Rinakama is well and in good health. An SDL source told us a few minutes ago, that the former MP is okay.
Rinakama was taken into custody after he was overheard making emotive comments following the sentencing of his cousin and Naitasiri chief, Ratu Inoke Takiveikata. Ratu Inoke was jailed for seven years after being found guilty of plotting to kill interim prime minister Frank Bainimarma.
Many questions have been asked about Rinakama's whereabouts and safety in recent week's, thanks understandably to conflicting information from government and sources close to him.
In light of previous incidents at Queen Elizabeth barracks, the concern was justified, and the unaswered questions around his arrest is a result of some of the well-documented ugly practices at the barracks.
Editor's Note at 3.30pm: According to his charge sheet, Rinakama was released on March the 10th, and is no longer in custody.
