Video has been published on Facebook today showing Fiji's Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama pushing and shoving an opposition MP.

Mr Bainimarama is seen grabbing the blazer of Pio Tikoduadua and shoving him.

Police in Fiji are investigating claims Mr Bainimarama, assaulted Mr Tikoduadua on August 9 in front of witnesses outside Parliament in Suva.
