Media NGO in Fiji calls for clarity over role of MIDA

Updated 40 minutes ago

A media NGO in Fiji says there needs to be more clarity about the role of institutions like the Media Industry Development Authority.

Last week, the Chairman of MIDA, Ashwin Raj, said the airing of a speech by Ratu Timoci Vesikula was against the Media Industry Development Decree as it constituted hate speech.

There are jail terms and large fines for breaching the decree.

The Executive Director of Fiji Media Watch, Agatha Ferei, says the Authority needs to clarify who the members of the tribunal are and whether Mr Raj has overreached his authority.

“And also the processes that they are taking or have taken to determine issues like hate speech. At the same time the chairperson may need to also exercise responsibility in understanding that his role is that of the authority, and that it should be treated differently from the role of the tribunal.”

  1. Mr raj is a failed phD student and an imbecile who should have never been appointed in the first, place the prick.

  2. please allow me to clarify for the benefit of anyone who needs clarification that the role of Arse wind Raj is that of a regime media henchman.

  3. This MIDA Chairman is an ignorant idiot! Too much arse licking and ball sucking to the regime with the likes of Matai Akauola, Leone Cabenatabua, Maika Bolatiki and that whore Jyoti. Their incompetence is enough of a problem but their total ignorance of what their roles should be and the lack of any conscience on their part is just unbearable and disgusting. We need to rid of these type of scum when we rebuild Fiji, but mark my words, these are the kind of people who will try to wiggle their bum holes into the loins of the next govt.

  4. The same goes for that wannabee kabawaqavonovo – Pita – behaving like he owns the voice of native Fijians!

    Come on youths, wake up, before this wannabee destroys you all – all he is interested is a seat in parliament – lets me sure he never gets in – an inverse racist!

    Arsewind Raj and Kabawaqavonovono are from the same riding stable- Drogobalaba!
