Illegal Aussie censorship chief demands FLP submit 'mischevious materials' before posting on website

The Fiji Labour Party has been ordered to submit the contents of its material to the illegal censorship chief before it can post them on its official website.
 
In a letter posted on the FLP website, Sharon Smith-Johns tells the party president, Jokapeci Koroi, who had welcomed the 2006 coup even before it took place, the illegal Government has noted that the FLP has been posting media press releases on its website calculated to either undermine Government generally, or to bring disrepute to particular officials. 

 
The letter from Smith-Johns informs Koroi the party has now been warned by the Government that it will not tolerate any further press releases, and reminded it of the Media Industry Decree 2010. 

 
Smith-Johns letter says: "All media releases as of today the 8th September 2010, are now to be approved by the Ministry of Information before they are allowed to be posted on the FLP website." 


She gives Koroi a Goebellian address for the articles: Ministry of Information. 
 
Smith-Johns goes on to say: "Should you fail to comply with this notice, and continue to breach the provisions of the media decree, Government will not hesitate to take all necessary measures within its disposal, and in accordance with the law." 

 
The illegal censor chief copied the letter to the illegal Attorney-General Aiyaz, Sayed Khaiyum. 


Sources in the Ministry of Information say the directive to the FLP follows a recent FLP article demanding the Government explain why Khaiyum's aunty was paying out the salary cheques to the Cabinet Ministers, including Khaiyum. 
 
Ironically, the FLP is now getting a taste of its own medicine, for supporting the coup, and later encouraging a crackdown on Fiji media claiming it was indulging in irresponsible journalism.

 
In 2008, when Chaudhry was basking under the protection of Bainimarama's guns, he lambasted the Fiji media for supposedly being naive in its reporpting. 


He was then the illegal interim Finance Minister and made the comment at the Fiji Labour Party Nadi branch annual general meeting. He said the picture painted by the media was as if nothing good was happening in the country. 
 
Chaudhry said if the nation wanted to fix the problems faced in the country then it's the duty of everyone to work together, including the media.  


Quote: "We won't be able to fix the problem in the country with irresponsible reporting. It's the media's duty to the people to be responsible when reporting in the interest of everyone and not a just a few."
 
Chaudhry said the December 5 coup had happened and the nation cannot reverse that. He said the only thing for the nation to do now was to think positive and move forward.

 
The FLP says Smith-John's letter has been sent to the party's lawyers for opinion.

 
Fiji has truly become a state where "dog eat dog".

Chaudary should have been shot in 2000 to spare the country his crap.

However, justice will come soon and he should be hanged at Korovou alongside all of his crooked FLP traitors who were responsible for the mess Fiji is in today.

Reading the comments above, i think all have missed the mark. FLP has been the only political party publically active on issues of national importance. Frank and Co have resisted in taking any action against the FLP until this rubbish from the PS.

Whatever's being said, it is no secret Mahend still commands the Indo-Fijian population and more importantly his Fijian base support is also growing. This is evident when you do your rounds of Fijian Villagers particularly in the Western and Central regions. Qarase has gone into hiding and has barely said a word or released a statement on issues of national importance. It's because of fear. Mahend doesn't fear anyone.

"A well informed and United Fiji" - What a hilarious motto. Smacking of hypocrisy - like many other ironic dictatorial mottos: "Abeit macht frei" (Auschwitz's 'work makes one free').

Given regimes paranoia often wondered how come they were constantly getting away with it?

But that was then - this is now.

Ha ha....FLP, that's what you get when you support a coup full stop! Am now wondering if the FLP President really lives @ Lodhia St in Nadi because I thought she lives in Suva ha ha!
Thought the letter was written in Nabaka, home of the totolo calacala Lekh Ram Vayeshnoi...hakwa Nadro!

Well when it all comes time to pay the piper, Smith Johns just royally fuked her options didn't she.

I wouldn't want to be in her shoes at the end of it all.
And I suspect a retreat to the "mainland" isn't going to give her any protection.

Luckily for her - these days we have "international courts" in various forms.
So much more civilised than rotting bodies strung up and hanging from lamposts we used to see a couple of generations before.
Still.... might still happen and when it does, watch that sad pathetic bitch scream innocence and blame everyone else when it comes time.

I don't care what the FLP says because this party is washed up and full of coup deadbeats but I have an issue with Sharon Smith -Johns.

What the hell is she doing working for this illegal regime and getting a free salary at the expense of taxpayers?

She came to Fiji to work in a private company and then replaced the idiot Leweni in this post.Come on Sharon..go back to your country because the blowing bocis for a job is just not cool.

I must agree. Chaudhry is definitely not a coward. He is apt to be back in the limelight. Leaders are always the frontliners in any war!!!
