  1. Imagine the adverse publicity that will occur if the dictatorship actually does force the Fiji Times to close. There would be headlines in all the newspapers in both Australia and New Zealand. The credibility of the dictatorship would be severely damaged.

    Can the dictatorship actually afford that damage? Is the dictatorship so blind as to be unaware of the consequences?
