Pacnews to move to Brisbane

BREAKING - Sources have told Coupfourpointfive that the Pacific news agency, Pacnews, will be relocated to Brisbane, Australia.

The Pacific Island's News Association, which owns Pacnews, confirmed earlier today it would move the news service out of Fiji immediately, but hadn't named a location.

Since the implementation of emergency regulations, Pacnews has refused to publish any story about Fiji to avoid having a censor placed in its Suva newsroom.

There's been calls to move the Pacific news agency out of Fiji, because of the unstable political climate and heavy media censorship.

Sources say PINA will decide at it's conference in July, whether its Secretariat needs to be relocated outside of Fiji as well.
