JAWS for Hunter

Members and Executive of JAWS agrees that the deportation of Russell Hunter is a direct attack on Press Freedom in the Pacific Region.
Journalists and Editors must not suffer for performing their duties as informers of the public and voice of the people.

Hunter performed his duties observing his role in the fourth estate of democracy.

We support Hunter and his pursuit of truth.

JAWS supports the statement by the Pacific Island News Association in condemning such actions by the Fiji interim Government or any other Government in the Pacific.

JAWS urges the Samoan Government to lobby for rights of the media in Fiji and the Pacific.
