See for yourself as Sayed-Khaiyum tells three flagrant lies within a 30-second burst of fiction-telling, and all within the supposed sanctity of Parliament.
From 18.01 he talks about the research done by a specialist polling company based in Washington.
1. 18:22 He tells Parliament the company doing the research ‘was not Qorvis’. But it was Qorvis – even Clarus’ own website acknowledges that they are the in-house polling company of Qorvis.
2. 18:27 Again he tells Parliament the company doing the research was not Qorvis. But this time the untruth is told to the Speaker. ‘It was not Qorvis Madam Speaker’. From the Qorvis corporate site: ‘Here at Qorvis we built our own in-house polling and research company: Clarus Research Group.’
3. Then Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum talks about the research findings that Qorvis/Clarus concluded which put the audience share at 50 percent, 43 percent and 7 percent between FBC TV, Fiji TV and Mai TV. Nowhere in the Qorvis/Clarus document do the report’s authors find, report or summarise any audience share that match what the A-G untruthfully represented to Parliament.

The government is hoping for a favorable response from the World Rugby in the next few hours.
Speaking exclusively to FBC NEWS Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, reveals the World Rugby has asked the government for certain undertakings, which the government has given, in order to get the rugby sevens coverage back into Fiji.
‘’We have had a fairly long teleconference, yesterday evening with World Rugby present, and we had some very fruitful discussions and they subsequently wanted to have a separate meeting with the Fiji Television, which obviously has the rights in Fiji, we have now subsequently has further correspondence.’’
Fiji Television Limited executives, Fijian Holdings Limited Chief executive Nouzab Fareed, the Solicitor General and the Director for Communications also attended the teleconference.
