Journalists warned Emergency Regulations could be extended

Senior journalists and foreign correspondents in Fiji have been warned the Public Emergency Regulations could be extended for another 30 days, if the media continues to report negatively about the interim regime.

The journalists were ordered to a meeting at the Ministry of Information this afternoon where the rules were relayed.

A stringer for the Australian Associated Press and journalist for PacNews has been arrested without charge.

Pita Ligaiula was escorted out of his newsroom in Suva by two police officers and
has been put in a cell at the Central Police Station in Suva.

The AAP Wellington Branch in New Zealand have organised a lawyer from the Suva based law firm Munroy Leys for him.

Learn to live with it folks, blog and turn your frustrations to the underground media instead. In their fear lies the key for bringing them down; won't be long!
