POL­I­TICS IN CHURCH EVENT?

Politi­cians and their co­horts re­spon­si­ble for spread­ing pro­pa­ganda about an al­leged in­ci­dent in the Par­lia­ment premises be­tween Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion Party MP Pio Tiko­d­uadua and Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama should stop it. BTL has been re­li­ably in­formed that the same group was al­legedly in­volved in spread­ing flyers at the Methodist Church bazaar at Fur­ni­val Park in Suva. It is morally and eth­i­cally wrong to be do­ing it while Po­lice are car­ry­ing out their in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the mat­ter. The bazaar is a church event. It should not be mixed with pol­i­tics.

TOD­DLER A HU­MAN SHIELD

A woman who ap­peared at the Suva Court yes­ter­day af­ter­noon took ad­van­tage of her tod­dler to avoid me­dia. She should be ashamed with her­self for us­ing an in­no­cent child as a hu­man shield against pho­tog­ra­phers try­ing to get a pic­ture her.

WHAT ARE THEY TRY­ING TO HIDE?

An­other re­li­gious or­gan­i­sa­tion has jumped on the band­wagon and im­posed re­stric­tions on me­dia cov­er­age. What are they try­ing to hide? One re­porter was yes­ter­day stopped by a pro­to­col of­fi­cer in this church from speak­ing to its mem­bers. What is strange is that ear­lier this week, the re­porter had no prob­lems talk­ing to mem­bers and se­nior clergy. The re­ports pub­lished may have made the lead­ers un­com­fort­able. They were ac­cu­rate. What’s the prob­lem?
