USP censorship continues: World Press Freedom Day.
Letter to the Editor
The Fiji Times and Fiji Sun.
As part of the World Media Freedom Day celebrations by the USP Journalism Students Association I was invited, and had accepted an invitation to be the Chief Guest and speaker on their program.
The USP management instructed the Head of School (Professor Mishra) and the Dean of FAL (Dr Kendrayate) to have me removed from the program and this was done.
It is an ongoing tragedy that our regional university continues to limit the academic freedom of not only the academic staff but also the students, while depriving this Fiji citizen of his freedom of speech and academic discourse to the journalism community.
Professor Wadan Narsey
