Fiji Freedom Writer: Even story on hospital being without hot water has been censored

Another freedom writer from behind Fiji's miltary lines told Coupfourpointfive what appeared - and didn't appear today - on TV:

The 6pm news on Fiji TV lasted just five minutes - sports 11. All up, it came out at 24 minutes, thanks to business news and the weather, but far shorter than its usual 60 minutes.

The only hard news - and it was just a dry read - was Saveneca Narube's sacking, along with that of other constitutional officers, like the Fiji Human Rights Commission, and the Director of Public Prosectutions.

The story only made it to air because Major Neumi Leweni confirmed it.

Missing was coverage of Dorsami Naidu's arrest, Edwin Nand's arrest or pictures of the lawyers outside the Lautoka Court today.

Also absent was a story on Sigatoka Hospital going without hot water for five days - the item was done on Sunday but authorities today continued to block it.

Dorsami Naidu will remain overnight at the Lautoka Police Station.

And Edwin Nand had not been released as of 6.50pm.
