Report: DPP Will Only Appeal Acquittal Of Fiji Times, Arts And Waqabaca

DPP Christopher Pryde confirmed that there were four grounds of their appeal which they have already filed, awaiting notice from the Fiji Court of Appeal.

The Director of Public Prosecutions will only be appealing the acquittal of the Fiji Times, its Publisher Hank Arts and column writer Josaia Waqabaca and not that of Fred Wesley and Anare Ra­vula.

DPP Christopher Pryde confirmed this yes­terday and also said there were four grounds of their appeal which they have already filed, awaiting notice from the Fiji Court of Ap­peal.

The case of sedition was filed against the Fiji Times and four others based on a column by Mr Waqabaca which was published in the Fiji Times’ vernacular paper Nai Lalakai.

The column which has since been trans­lated by the High Court in Suva officers is reprinted here in full.
