MIDA has not been very active: AG Attorney General and Minister for Communications Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum admitted in Parliament today that the Media Industry Development Authority of Fiji (MIDA) has not been very active.

Sayed-Khaiyum while responding to Assistant Minister for iTaukei Affairs Selai Adimaitoga's end of the week statement said MIDA needs to be active to address the issue of reckless reporting by media organisations.

He said a chairperson of the Authority will be appointed soon to address the problems.

“The Fiji Media Development Authority needs to conduct work on falling standards. In fact I think there is a lapse, on the part of the Authority itself,” he said.

“One of the problems in Fiji has been the lack of focus by media organisations on development economics.

“We are post-colonial society, our development agendas are different and we need to be able to have investigative journalism in those areas,” he said.

He said there Is a need for media organisations to be be held responsible for third-party comments on their social media accounts.

“Media organisations can no longer hide behind the guise that it’s not their comment. Their webpage or their Facebook page has actually facilitated that,” he said.

“I really hope that the judiciary in Fiji picks up on the development of the laws surrounding social media.”

“Social media is rife with racial vilification and hate comments, and this cannot be allowed to continue unchecked,” he said.
