Few weeks ago Coup 4.5 reported the saga between Fiji One's Satish Narayan and Bainimarama's daughter. Yesterday June 17, 2013 Satish Narayan received his walking papers from Fiji One.
It is understood that Bainimarama called a board member of Fiji One, Padam Lala and told him if Fiji One wants their License in tact, they will have to sack Satish Narayan.
Padam Lala instructed Tarun Patel to sack Satish Narayan immediately, If Patel wanted to keep his job.
The employees of FBC were told of the firing of Narayan way before the employees of Fiji One were made aware of.
Lets hope that Fiji One will not find themselves as part of the FBC in near future. on Burrow: ITUC will push for Commission of Inquiry on Fiji

Wati, her husband Agni Deo and 20 month old son Kartik, will leave Nadi on the 8.45am flight to Auckland tommorrow.
Doctors in Fiji diagnosed Wati's son as having a full retinal detachment which could lead to blindness if surgery is not carried out to fix it.
Wati and her family will be meeting with the specialist from Mercy Hospital in Newmarket on Tuesday.
Last week, Fiji's interim attorney general Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum accused New Zealand of interfering with the judiciary after it declined Wati's visa because she's a judge in the interim government.
But New Zealand immigration responded saying a final decision on Wati's visa had yet to be made.

On page 4 of the Fiji Sun of October the 13th, the interim prime minister, while attacking Australia, said the regime was not going to be dictated to by anyone from outside, on what needed to be done in Fiji.
The army commander repeated his earlier belief about the need for electoral reforms, again blaming Laisenia Qarase and the SDL for causing Fiji's current problems. But he failed to specify what exactly those current problems are since his regime has been in power for almost three years now and one would think well able to fix some of those issues.
Bainimarama's comment that 'Fiji is for the Fijians', would also seemingly negate the principle in the Peoples Charter, which has adopted the term 'Fijian' as the common name for all Fiji citizens.
The Commodore is only the second leader in Fiji's turbulent history to ever call himself a 'nationalist.'
The other was the late Sakeasi Butadroka, the leader of the Nationalist Party, who initially wanted Indians to be repatriated to India but who later on said they could stay on but as vulagis (visitors).

Recent figures show 3,200 more New Zealand residents went on trips to Australia in September this year, compared to September last year, when 1,700 more went to Fiji and 700 more went to India.
New Zealanders, however, made fewer trips to the United States, France, Canada and Hong Kong.
Chandar is believed to be a cousin of sacked Suva City Council Administrator Vijendra Prakash who was given the boot almost a month ago.
Those suspended are Chandar, Nasinu Town Council Administrator Meli Bogileka and Town Clerk Satish Kumar.
Sources say it is highly likely that the suspensions of Chandar and Kumar will change to termination.

In a statement it said:
- a visa has not been denied, the application is still being assessed;
- there was no suggestion made at the time of enquiries that immediate travel was required to prevent loss of sight in one eye, but if such information is available it should be provided to the New Zealand Immigration Office;
- although New Zealand maintains travel restrictions against certain persons following the coup in December 2006, New Zealand has always consistently shown flexibility where humanitarian, medical or compassionate grounds have been substantiated.
New Zealand says it is still considering whether to approve the visa and a decision has not been made.
But Sayed Khaiyum said Wati was told in an interview last week that her visa was being declined because she is a High Court judge.
Wati applied for a medical visa to in order to take her 20 month old child for an urgent eye operation to prevent the permanent loss of eyesight in one eye and claims arrangements had been made with the Auckland Starship hospital.
In a statement issued from his office today, Sayed Khaiyum claims Wati was "advised in an undignified and disrespectful manner".
"Such interference by a neighbouring State in the Fijian judiciary is unacceptable by any world standard. We have long realised of course, that protestations or claims of unending friendship and of acting only in Fiji’s best interests, by our neighbours, have been hollow and meaningless," he said.
"Though we do not accept travel bans placed upon anyone in the Cabinet, the public service or the RFMF, a distinction is always to be drawn between the executive and the judiciary and other independent institutions. These institutions are separate and are independent of the executive, and should be so respected. This is an international norm."
"How would it be viewed by the New Zealand judiciary and government if their judges were prevented by Fiji from coming here with their families on holidays? Wouldn’t such a move be seen by the New Zealand government, the judiciary and the New Zealand people as an interference with their judicial independence? Most certainly it would be," Sayed Khaiyum said.
He called on New Zealand to cease interference with Fiji's judiciary saying "such a move which victimises not only a respected judge, but also her child, is shameful and must be universally condemned".
Yesterday interim Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum accused New Zealand of interfering with the Fijian judiciary by refusing Wati entry to get urgent medical treatment for her 20-month-old child.
Sayed Khaiyum told Radio New Zealand this morning Wati received a letter from the Suva based New Zealand High Commission last week informing her her visa was declined.
He said she then requested a meeting with them where they formally told her that her visa was declined because she is a High Court judge.
As part of its sanctions on Fiji, soldiers and anyone involved in the interim regime are not allowed entry into New Zealand.
Sayed Khaiyum insisted this was an interference with the Fiji judiciary and not an immigration matter.

Sayed-Khaiyum told reporters today he was informed by the Chief Justice that Family Court judge Justice Anjala Wati was advised “in an undignified and disrespectful manner that her visa application was rejected because she had taken up a position as a judge on the High Court of Fiji”.
Justice Wati had applied for a New Zealand medical visa to take her child for an urgent eye operation to prevent the loss of eyesight in one eye.
“It’s a very serious matter,” Sayed-Khaiyum said.
“This is at a much higher level than the travel advisories issued against Fiji in the past.”
“Such interference by a neighbouring State in the Fijian judiciary is unacceptable by any world standards.”
“Though we do not accept travel bans placed upon anyone in the Cabinet, the public service or the RFMF, a distinction is always to be drawn between the executive and the judiciary and other independent institutions. These institutions are separate and are independent of the executive and should be so respected.”
The matter would be referred to the Prime Minister tomorrow, Sayed-Khaiyum said.
He said Justice Wati was now making arrangements to have the surgery carried out in India.
