Samy attacks Fiji and NZ media

An advisor of Fiji's interim prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, has accused the media of being "vehemently hostile" towards the Bainimarama regime.

In a speech given at the Victoria University of Wellington yesterday, John Samy said the mainstream media has often not reported truthfully and responsibly.

"Under normal democratic governance, with the freedom of the media must come the responsibility on the part of media to report truthfully," Samy said.

He said it was regrettable that the mainstream media in Fiji and New Zealand, has failed on these accounts.

"The New Zealand Herald for example, has projected the same tendency towards being 'wooden-headed' as the Government of New Zealand," he said.


  1. This crook of a consultant Sami has lost all credibility. He is now shooting the messenger - the media for reporting his crooked and corrupt action!

  2. It is very easy! If you do not like the role the media plays in Fiji then DO NOT come to Fiji because whether you like it or not proper democratic principles will be the order of the day. Even though that is not practical at the moment with the current dictatorship!

  3. My prayer that God will bless my beautiful Fiji no matter what. Let the death buried heir dead.

  4. If Samy wants to see a real example of "wooden-headed", he need look no further than the behaviour of his own mates in the Regime and the NCBBF in practically everything they've undertaken since 2006.
