One wonders whether Fiji IG has learnt from how the International Community moved in to help the ordinary Fiji people after the recent National Disaster. The saga just seems to drag on much to the dismay of many Fiji ordinary people alike be it back in Fiji & offshore. It seems imminent that Fiji will be axed from the Pacific Forum & International Community - Does Fiji really need this??? Its time the general public gets told of who are the Coup Perpetrators & those that are raking the benefits of this Contra - Deal????
MAY GOD BLESS THE ORDINARY FIJI PEOPLE!!!

Fiji to expel newspaper publisher
Updated at 11:07am on 27 January 2009
Another newpaper publisher has been ordered to leave Fiji by the interim government of Commodore Frank Bainimarama.
The deportation of Fiji Times publisher Rex Gardner was announced on the newspaper's website. Mr Gardner, an Australian, is expected to be flown out of the country on Tuesday.
The High Court has fined the newspaper $100,000 for publishing a letter criticising the court's validation of the 2006 military coup.
Mr Gardner's predecessor Evan Hannah was deported by the Fiji government in May 2008.
The Fiji Times is the island nation's oldest paper.
Meanwhile, Pacific Islands Forum leaders meeting in Papua New Guinea were considering on Tuesday how to respond to the refusal of Fiji's interim government to hold democratic elections by March as promised.
The leaders are expected to consider a range of actions, which may see Fiji excluded from leadership meetings, but would allow activity at officials level to continue.
No member of the forum has ever been suspended, however that option is on the table.
