Fiji's pro-regime media namely State owned Radio Fiji and private Legend FM are continuing to give prominence and prime air time to dictatorship regime's head Frank Bainimarama and Permanent Secretary for Information Neumi Leweni to mis-inform the people of Fiji regarding the circumstances surrounding the arrest and detention of Marama Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa and the leadership of Methodist Church.
Radio Fiji and Communications Fiji Ltd - which operates five radio stations - two Hindi, two English and one Fijian station, have completely succumbed to censorship and allow the regime air time to state blatant lies and provide misinformation.
The Fiji Sun under the leadership of Peter Lomas sold its independence to the regime a few weeks before the imposition of the new legal order on 10th April and its daily editions glorify Bainimarama, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and other regime leaders in return for advertisements.
Both radio Fiji and Legend FM still say that Ro Teimumu and the Church leaders are being questioned by police. There is no mention of them being detained by the military or initially the police in Ro Teimumu's case. Both radio stations reported this morning that all four are being questioned by police.
The last shreds of neutrality, independence and impartiality of the Fiji Sun, Radio Fiji and Communications Fiji Ltd have well and trully gone with their decision to allow the regime absolute freedom to bombard innocent citizens with abuse and accusations and refusing to take the victims' side of the story in an attempt to try and get them aired or even for the censors to reject it.
