No word on renewal of Fiji TV licence

Posted at 02:51 on 29 June, 2012 UTC

There is is still no official word from the Fiji regime on whether it will renew the licence of Fiji TV.

The licence will expire tomorrow but is expected to be renewed after a written assurance given by the interim attorney-general, Aiyaz Sayed-Khayium, last year.

This month, the regime issued a decree that empowers the minister to revoke or vary a television licence if the licensee is found to have breached the Media Code of Ethics under the Media Industry Development Decree.

The Labour Party says it finds it abhorrent that none of the decrees can be challenged.

Earlier this month, Fiji TV was reportedly warned that its licence was at risk for giving coverage to two former prime ministers.

Fiji has two other television stations, Mai TV and FBC TV, which is run by the interim prime minister’s brother.

  1. Its all a game but he is playing at very high stakes. Soon if he is not careful it will come tumbling down around him; military or no military

  2. Once again the regime displays its nasty dictatorial and vindictive face. You step out of the line decreed by Khaiyum you get punished. If these are the opening moves of the constitutional consultation, those contemplating submissions better be careful! Either you agree with everything Khaiyum and his thugs say or you suffer. All signals send by the regime are consistent: No meetings in churches, no ‘anti-government’ angle, no free speech, no human rights, no transparency, no accountability. What we see is vindictive persecution of anyone who dares to hold and voice an opinion different from Khaiyums.

  3. KD – please stop your lipo poto style yaar,,,we want mard leader who can fight the taliban not like you darpork kauwa….

  4. If the dictator actually does shut down Fiji TV, there will be considerable adverse publicity in Australia, NZ, and other countries in the area. Although it is risky to predict what would happen after that, the results could work against the dictator.

  5. Labour’s response to Krishna Datt

    [posted 29 June 2012,1600]

    Krishna Datt was expelled from the Fiji Labour Party for breach of Party discipline. His attack on the FLP Leader at a media conference in Suva today, therefore, smacks too much of political vendetta.

    He faced expulsion from the Party, along with some others, not because he was a threat to the leadership but because he went against Party values and principles, particularly in supporting policies that hurt the poor such as the hike in Vat to 15%, when he was a Minister in the multi-party Cabinet in 2006.

    Mr Datt is now trying to pose as a political saint but everybody knows how self-serving he has been in his political career.

    As for his snide remark that “having lost credibility among Indian voters, (FLP) was now wooing Fijian support by leaning on Qarase”, well, this is not the first time Krishna Datt will be staking his political future on such baseless claims. He obviously refuses to face the reality on the ground.

    “Labour’s support among the grassroots is intact. But Mr Datt is welcome to put this to the test,” said Mr Chaudhry.

    “The FLP is a democratic entity and its party leadership has always been elected. My position as secretary-general of the Party is an elected one. So is that of Party Leader, and it is based on the overwhelming mandate of the electorate,” Mr Chaudhry said.

    In any case, there are more important issues of national significance to occupy the attention of the FLP, than the misguided ravings of a person who can’t quite decide whether he wants to form a new political party or not. It won’t take him long to realize that in the political arena there is no place for people with confused minds.

    “What we are doing along with the SDL and the UPP, is to try and unite the nation as it treads the path back to democracy and constitutional rule via general elections. This process can only be credible and legitimate if it is based on fundamental universal values and principles.
