More journalists rounded up

More journalists have been taken in for questioning by Fiji police for trying to do their jobs.

The Fiji Times photographer Jai Prasad, Fiji Television Western Reporter Ranbeer Singh and cameraman Harry Tabanidalo, were taken in by police today.

Sources have told Coupfourpointfive they had gone to cover the protest by lawyers in Lautoka, when they were taken in by police.

The source says Fiji Law Society President Dorsami Naidu, who was there with the lawyers, was also taken into police custody.

Coupfourpointfive has been told that seven police officers also went to the Fiji Times Lautoka office and took photos taken by the newspaper's photographer of events outside the Lautoka court.

  1. This is insane.
    Taking reporters and photographers who are only doing their job is shameful.
    The interim regime must allow the media to do its job.
    It's doing no favours to itself by arresting reporters and photographers, who are merely acting on instructions from their news editors.
