Bainimarama: PER to stay until Media Decree adopted

Fiji’s interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, has told local media the Public Emergency Regulations will stay in place until the Media Decree comes into force.

He says the PER were introduced in the interests of national security, public safety and public order.

Commodore Bainimarama told the Fiji Sun the emergency regulations would only be removed when Cabinet endorses the Media Decree.

“Consultation on the new decree is still under way and the Government remains committed towards a better Fiji.”


  1. May as well leave the PER in place because the decree serves the same purpose only in a different form.

  2. Come on Frank these decrees were not introduced to ensure national security and public safety!

    These were introduced to shut the people of Fiji up in raising issues of concern publicly.

    If this is your idea of national security then you are NOT in a different planet where the leader of the nation is an uneducated, army commander (boat captain) who rules with the gun barrel!
