Media Freedom Fiji style

Acting Journalism Coordinator at USP, Patrick Craddock and lecturer in journalism, Dr. Matthew Thompson, have protested the treatment of two journalists during the the Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF). This expensive gab-fest which should be called Frank’s Own Forum, denied accreditation to Pareti without explanation, while the Rika was subject to police harrassment.  The FOF spokesman tried to blame extra security for the visit by the President of Indonesia for the denial of access to Pareti.  No explanation was`given for the treatment handed out to Netani Rika. Both are on the regime’s banned list for failing to be brainless mouthpieces for the regime.
