The Fiji Village is reporting the Prime Minister as telling the international community and the overseas media there are no armed soldiers in the newsrooms in Fiji.
The webste says Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has told the ABC that it is misleading for News Limited to say that armed troops are in the newsrooms.
He also questioned the ABC why the Fiji Times newspaper did not allow the Australian news crew to go to the newsroom and film how they are publishing the newspaper.
Commodore Bainimarama said he never stopped the overseas media from going into the newsrooms and does not understand why this was not allowed by the Fiji Times.
He maintained that only the Ministry of Information staff are checking the stories under the Public Emergency Regulation. By Vijay Narayan
