EURO­PEAN WATCH

Fiji Sun - - Fiji Today - Feed­back: filipe.naigulevu@fi­jisun.com.fj

In­ter­est­ing to see the Euro­pean Union show­ing such in­ter­est in a crim­i­nal case against the Fiji Times. So much in­ter­est that a se­nior of­fi­cial of the EU del­e­ga­tion here was present in court yes­ter­day. Talk­ing about the EU. Per­haps next time they send a del­e­ga­tion of jour­nal­ists on a trip over­seas, they will send some­one along with them who is not out­right dis­re­spect­ful to jour­nal­ists and to the Fi­jian Am­bas­sador to Brus­sels. Just a thought from one who was there.

One of our ed­i­tors had the priv­i­lege of be­ing part of an Ar­gen­tinian ra­dio talk show hosted by for­mer rugby play­ers. They wanted to know about the at­mos­phere here and how many days has been set aside as pub­lic hol­i­days af­ter the gold medal win.

When told that next Mon­day is the pub­lic hol­i­day set aside for na­tional cel­e­bra­tions .... they were clearly dis­ap­pointed. They sug­gested that three days would be ap­pro­pri­ate. Not sure that would quite fit with the PM’s push for na­tional pro­duc­tiv­ity.
