My Immediate Family And I Pay Court Costs

Mr Maika Bolatiki, in his column in the Fiji Sun 29/8/18, questioned the purpose of the fundraising dinner for the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) today, September 1, 2018.

The “Between the Lines” column appears to be a device that enables wild speculations to be published without seeking the views of the person or entity being talked about before publication.

Maika Bolatiki asks in the column whether the purpose of the dinner is to raise funds for my legal fees? If he had bothered to ask, as any journalist worth his salt would to find out the facts, I would have happily clarified his ‘musings’. I find his comments childish and unprofessional, to say the least.

Mr Bolatiki should get his facts right first before making assumptions and wild allegations.

He should also follow the Media Code of Ethics and at the very least seek our views before making wild assumptions fed by malicious and ‘faceless’ and ‘inaccurate’ sources.

The fundraising dinner is an initiative of the Party’s fundraising committee.

The Party is holding a Special General Assembly meeting earlier in the day and the dinner is a celebratory one, where the candidate lineup for 2018 will be announced.

For Bolatiki’s information, my immediate family and I will foot the legal costs relating to my case.

May I suggest that Mr Bolatiki refrain from speculatory gossip based on assumptions from unreliable sources.

I call on the media to rise above gossip and being a puppet used by faceless and malicious, calacala ‘sources’
