AQELA SUSU
Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Update: 5:43PM THREE senior officials of The Fiji Times and another man appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court this afternoon.

Nai Lalakai editor Anare Ravula, The Fiji Times Editor-in-Chief, Fred Wesley and The Fiji Times general manager/publisher Hank Arts, the Fiji Times Limited and Josaia Waqabaca, are charged with inciting communal antagonism in relation to an article published by the Fiji Times in its supplemental iTaukei language newspaper, Nai Lalakai on April 27 this year.

The four appeared before Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne.

It is alleged that Mr Waqabaca, Mr Ravula, Mr Wesley, Mr Arts and the Fiji Times Ltd made, or caused to be published, a statement in the iTaukei language Nai Lalakai newspaper that was likely to incite dislike, hatred or antagonism of the Muslim community.

The four were required to provide sureties of a $1000 each and were released on bail.

They will reappear in court on August 31.
