FBC News understands this is in relation to a complaint filed by Minister for Rural and Maritime Development and Disaster Management Sakiasi Ditoka on December 22nd last year.

In his complaint, Ditoka alleges that Sayed-Khaiyum incited racial hatred and violence in view of his public statements during a press conference in Suva last year.
