MIDA to investigate complaint

September 16, 2015 5:04 am

The Media Industry Development Authority has confirmed it has received a complaint about comments made by radio announcers on a radio station.

It’s alleged some announcers of Communications Fiji Limited’s Radio Navtarang made some insensitive remarks about the case of a man allegedly stealing the remains of murder victim, Simran Singh.

MIDA Chairman Ashwin Raj says pursuant to the requirements set out in the Media Industry Development Decree, MIDA will seek an official response from the media organization as well as review the full transcript of the segment.

Meanwhile, CFL’s Managing Director William Parkinson says they are yet to receive any correspondence about this matter from MIDA.

In a statement, he adds they have a recording of the alleged comments and at no time did any of their personalities say anything but describe the incident as detailed in the police report, express disgust at the incident and express their sympathies to the family.

Parkinson says the Facebook posts are an ugly attempt to defame Navtarang and exploit this terrible tragedy.

Raj has advised members of the media fraternity to uphold the Media Code of Ethics at all times.
