Military Regime Receives Bad Report from Amnesty International

"The military-led government continued to rule without a constitution, and repressive Public Emergency Regulations (PER) remained in place. The government continued to restrict freedom of expression; critics of the government, including members of the Methodist Church, were among those targeted. A new law was passed, stifling media freedom. Human rights defenders were intimidated and persecuted through the courts or directly through the use of the PER. A new decree addressing violence against women had yet to be implemented by the courts and the police."
(Amnesty International Report on Fiji)
 
Human Rights Abuse by Illegal Fiji Regime

Amnesty International has delivered a very harsh report on the human rights record of the illegal Bainimarama regime. 


  • It lashed them for continued restrictions on freedom of expression, including the media decree which stifled press freedom. 

  • Human rights defenders and critics were intimidated and persecuted through the courts on trumped charges or directly through the use of the PER.
It’s all there in the Amnesty International Report. Boasts by Khaiyum about his decree addressing violence against women are dismissed as “yet to be implemented by the courts and the police."
