Eight Australian freemasons, and a New Zealander, spent a night in a Fijian jail after locals became concerned about just what they were getting up to in one of their secret cermonies. The locals are claiming the freemasons are involved in witchcraft and sorcery :
The New Zealand man told reporters he had spent a "wretched" time in jail, and blamed the mix-up on the actions of "dopey village people".
Police also seized wands, compasses and a skull from the freemasons' lodge.
"Dopey village people"? They got busted with wands and a fucking skull. Most people anywhere in the world would assume that something very strange was going on in that meeting.
Freemasons, always got friends in high places.
Police director of operations Waisea Tabakau told Legend FM News in Fiji that the group was being investigated for "allegedly practising sorcery", the Fiji Village website reported.
The New Zealand man said that when they were freed the following morning, they were told their release was on the orders of the prime minister's office.
Did police have to give the skull back?
