Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and SODELPA MP Ro Filipe Tuisawau

Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has challenged SODELPA MP Ro Filipe Tuisawau to talk about the judiciary outside the Parliament and to give one single instance where they have found the judiciary to be corrupt.

This comes after Ro Filipe, in his End of Week Statement, attacked the independence of the judiciary, Fiji Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission, Fijian Elections Office, FICAC and MIDA.

Sayed-Khaiyum says when the Opposition do not like the decision, then that particular body is not independent and when they like the decision, the organisation is okay.

He says they go and berate these institutions and systems yet they want to compete and participate in that political sphere.

He further says the opposition has not lodged a complaint to the FEO and even the ones that have been lodged are frivolous and vexatious.

He adds the Media Industry Development Act has verbatim the same standards the Media Council had.
