Emergency Regulations extended

The Public Emergency Regulations in Fiji has been extended for another month.

The PER came into effect on April 10, following the abrogation of the Constitution and the reappointment of Frank Bainimarama as interim prime minister.

The media has been under heavy censorship since the emergency regulations came into effect. Media Censors from the Ministry of Information visit the different media everyday, to remove stories they deem anti-government.

Two Fiji journalists have been jailed without charge for writing anti-government stories.

The PER will now expire on June 10.
