POLICE officers yesterday served a search warrant on The Fiji Times to obtain photograph­s of public protest meetings at the University of the South Pacific earlier this week.

The search warrant claimed that police had “reasonable cause to suspect” that the photograph­s were “necessary to the conduct of an investigat­ion into an offence”.

The search warrant authorised police officers to obtain “video footage and photograph articles of USP staff and student protest dated 9 June 2020”.

The Fiji Times editor-inchief Fred Wesley said the newspaper was required to give to the police three photograph­s relating to the protest which appeared in the newspaper on Wednesday.

He said other informatio­n had been requested by the police relating to the photograph­s and this request was in the hands of the newspaper’s lawyers.
