French Polynesia’s pro-independence leader Oscar Temaru is taking the prosecutor Herve Leroy to court after he last week seized $US100,000 from his private bank account.

In a separate move, Mr Temaru is lodging a complaint with the judicial authorities over the seizure of the funds.

The two steps were taken after Mr Leroy issued a statement, saying he ordered the action against Mr Temaru so that the money would not disappear.

Mr Temaru, who is in his fourth day of an unlimited hunger strike, said Mr Leroy failed to honour the presumption of innocence when he seized the money because his case was still before the court of appeal.
