Khaiyum says media issues had been dealt with

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Update: 11.29am Interim Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says as far as he is concerned the circumstances involving the deportation of Fiji Sun Publisher Russell Hunter and the summoning of Fiji Times Publisher Evan Hannah has been dealt with.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum was responding to statements made by Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith.

Smith told the Australian Associated Press the action against the two Australian journalists is part of plans by the military government to muzzle the media.

Smith said the move was part of what he calls “a disturbing pattern of behaviour” since the coup which has severely eroded fundamental human rights and the rule of law.

However Mr Sayed-Khaiyum told Radio Fiji the matter had been looked into.”I have not heard the comments by the foreign minister nor have I read any of his comments. “The matter I believe has already been addressed by the respective ministers and we believe the matter has been resolved. So I believe that’s where the matter ends.”

TWF notes: Too bad that you haven’t outline a single reason why he was deported. Everyone has been asking but all we get is “national security”. Thats simply not acceptable given your mindless and childlike rants on openness and transparency. And your vitriol towards the media on their perceived fairness. Personally I think this Khaiyum suffered from a terrible childhood being picked on by everyone. Not because he couldn’t defend himself or vunerable, but because he tried to hard to be a complete twat to everyone. So he takes it all out on the peoples of Fiji.

If Khaiyum really thinks this matter is closed, will he give a complete and official response to the Australian foreign minister. I don’t think so. He does not have the intelligence, nor the balls to do so. Khaiyum knows the Australians can see straight through the crap and look at the situation objectively.

So to end all controversy, did Chaudhry give the order for deportation? Who cooked up the blatantly false charges and pitiful reasons for deportation? Who felt threatened by Evan Hannah that you needed to dress him down? How did you get your grubby girly hands on the so called article that was to tell the truth as it was? Who threatened Netani Rika and Matt Wilson? Speak Khaiyum or forever hold your peace.

    As far as he’s concerned, the matter has ended and he doesn’t feel the need to explain the actions to anybody. He does however, like the rest of the expect aid and respect from donors, also without question. They should not question what is going on or pass judgements and opinions, yet the illegal junta is perfectly entitled to make judgements and throw pathetic little hissy fits back. Well, perhaps they should try that kind of diplomacy on the Chinese, or India even.
    Standby for another security alert/excuse from Frank too. It’ll be to do with Australian and NZ navy exercising with Fiji’s island neighbours.
