BACKBITING CIVIL SERVANTS? No, says Solicitor-General Sharma, as he calls on Fiji Times to correct an article on Khaiyum and civil servants
“The Fiji Times coverage of the Attorney-General’s comments represents another unfortunate example of sensationalised reporting that dispenses with the facts in favour of a misleading headline and incorrect content within the article.” The Solicitor-General Sharvada Sharma, in his capacity as acting Permanent Secretary for Communications, said that this was not the first time Aiyaz Khaiyum had been misquoted by Fiji Times, and that “represents a serious disservice to the public”.
The Fiji Times has printed a correction and an apology, and the original story is no longer available online.
"...Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives." --Robert A.
