People smuggling becoming a bigger concern in the Pacific

Updated May 31, 2011 17:42:14

The issues of people smuggling and drug trafficking are now becoming a concern for governments in the Pacific islands.

Some of these countries include Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga and Solomon Islands to name just a few.

In Tonga, the Supreme Court in Nuku'alofa this week jailed a Chinese national over a number of offences including human trafficking.

The woman was charged for illegally bringing two young girls from China to work in Tonga.

But how concerned are Pacific nations about human trafficking?

Presenter: Clement Paligaru
Speaker: Richard Herr, Ajunct Professor of governance and ethics at Fiji National University

2011 Vision Pasifika Media Award Launched: Respect and Protect

 

This year the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) environment media award is focusing on the Pacific Year of the Dugong, calling upon Pacific media workers from throughout the region to submit their news items on Dugongs, Sea grasses and Marine life in general.

 

The Vision Pasifika Media award to recognise and pay tribute to Pacific reporters for their role in raising awareness on environment issues has expanded to include an online news category.  There is also a special category for 2011 for news items submitted on the conservation of marine life of general.

 

"Dugongs and their habitats, the sea grasses are a great subject for news as they are amazing marine creatures that many of us Pacific islanders know very little about.  The 2011 year of the dugong is an opportunity for us to learn more about these creatures and their role in our marine ecosystems," said Lui Bell, the Marine Species Officer of the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).

 

"We also understand that the dugong is not in every Pacific island country or territory, and that for some of our islands – sea grasses are not in abundance.  Taking this into account we have a special category prize for the best news item in any genre submitted about conserving marine life in general."

 

Entries for the award must have been featured either online, on radio, television or in print, between 1 January to December 31, 2011.  The deadline for entries to reach SPREP is 15 January, 2012, where they will be distributed to a judging panel which consists of a SPREP member, a regional media representative and an environmental NGO.

 

It is open to all Pacific island reporters working and residing in any of the SPREP island member countries or territories.

 

"This year we'd like to see more entries from throughout our region, including those who work in the radio genre," said Nanette Woonton, SPREP's Media and Public Relations Officer.

 

"We always receive strong interest and number of entries from Fiji for which we are always impressed by their level and amount of environment reports.  We'd also like to encourage other Pacific island countries and territories to send in more entries."

 

For more information about dugongs and sea grasses to help provide you background with your news items, please visit: http://www.sprep.org/Biodiversity/PYoD/index.asp to obtain fact sheets.  For more detailed information about the 2011 Vision Pasifika Media Award, please visit: http://www.sprep.org/documents/Vision_Pasifika_Flyer.pdf

[pima.nius] FIJI: 'Offline' Fiji Times makes digital upgrade to comply with media decree

'OFFLINE' FIJI TIMES MAKES DIGITAL UPGRADE TO COMPLY WITH MEDIA DECREE

By Kalasi Mele of Wansolwara

SUVA (Wansolwara/Pacific Media Watch): Fiji's daily news portal, Fiji Times Online, will remain inactive until its computer system is reprogrammed to ensure bylines are automatically attached to all stories when uploaded.
This was confirmed by Fiji Times editor-in-chief Fred Wesley, who was hopeful the website would be back online before the end of the month.

Speaking to Wansolwara, the journalism training newspaper at the University of the South Pacific, Wesley said the upgrade was needed to ensure the newspaper adhered to the Fiji Media Industry Decree.

The decree sets out that stories of more than 50 words must have a byline, and all pictures must have a caption and a picture credit.

Wesley said the website, which was suspended on April 18, has an average readership of 750,000 a month. Many of its readers in Fiji and abroad expressed frustration over the absence of the website, he said.   

The scheduled upgrade is also expected to ensure greater security.

"No one will be able to change stuff, no one will be able to change captions because it will all be linked to a database and there is no room for errors," said Wesley.

System upgrade
"With the Media Decree, every story must have a byline and every photo must have a caption and a picture byline; stories that will have negative impact on the security of the country should not be run," he said.

"Basically everything that the Media Decree encompasses; whatever is in the Media Decree, our web system will be able to pick and keep them within the confinements of the Media Decree."

He said reprogramming had been delayed because the appropriate technicians could not be sourced locally. Help had been sought from Sydney, Australia, instead.

Wesley said speculation linking the inactive website to the recent fate of its chairman Mahendra Patel was baseless.

"I would like to say that there is no basis to that assumption or claim," he said.

He was responding to queries on whether the website going offline was a means of "damage control" over a controversial court case.

Owner jailed
Patel, managing director of one of Fiji's largest conglomerates, was jailed  for 12 months after being convicted on one count of abuse of office for a decision he made as chairman of Post Fiji.

 "I thought we were very fair; we ran stories that deserved to be run," said Wesley of the Fiji Times' coverage.

He said the newspaper's independence was evident as it even published the news of Patel's incarceration on its front page.

[pima.nius] High Aussie dollar hurting Pacific islands consumers

11:53 AM |

High Aussie dollar hurting Pacific islands consumers

Updated May 30, 2011 17:08:53

The high Australian dollar is having a negative impact on the Pacific according to new research from the ANZ Bank ..and it is consumers that are feeling it most.

Since early 2009 the Aussie dollar has had a spectacular rise -from just over 60 US cents to a peak earlier this month of over $1.10 US.

Today it is back to $1.06 but the outlook remains strong.

ANZ's Chief Asia Pacific Economist says Pacific households are taking a hit.

Presenter: Jemima Garrett, Pacific Business and Economic reporter
Speaker: Paul Gruenwald, Chief Asia Pacific Economist with the ANZ Bank

GRUENWALD: We recently surveyed our staff in the Pacific to find out the impact of the high Australian dollar and what we found was that the importing firms were not hedged, but because of the market position, they were able to pass the larger import costs onto the household. So we found that the larger net impact of the high Aussie dollar on the Pacific was being born by the retail sector.

GARRETT: So just how much impact are ordinary people in the Pacific feeling from the high Australian dollar?

GRUENWALD: Well, that's hard to get an exact number on, but some countries such as Fiji and PNG import one quarter or up to one half of their total goods from Australia and a bit more from New Zealand, where we think the affect would be similar for the New Zealand dollar, so it's quite a substantial chunk of household spending.

GARRETT: So to what extent are local businesses taking the impact of the high Australian dollar and to what extent is it flowing right through to households?

GRUENWALD: Our view again is most of it's being passed through to the retail sector. The firms that are taking a hit are the ones that are importing the raw materials or getting them from a second round affect and they're less able to absorb the cost, but there doesn't seem to be the direct importers that are taking the hit.

GARRETT: You found, as you mentioned, that most Pacific businesses were not hedged against the rise in the Australian dollar. Was that a mistake on their part?

GRUENWALD: We don't think it's a mistake necessarily. We would may be think of it as an opportunity since the Australian dollar is projected to stay relatively high. The ANZ has the forecast for Aussie dollar remaining above parity with the US dollar until the middle of next year. And as we all know the Aussie dollar is a relatively volatile currency, compared with the other majors. So certainly there's a bit in this case to look at hedging some of those exposures.

GARRETT: The high Australian dollar means that Australians have more money in their pocket when they go overseas. Is that leading to an increase in Australian tourists travelling to the Pacific?

GRUENWALD: It doesn't. There's two possibilities there, one as you noted there's more purchasing power in Australia and the attractiveness of going abroad is enhanced because of the higher currency. But it looks like Australian tourists are actually substituting away from the Pacific and going in larger numbers to markets like the US and Europe, so the Pacific has actually not experienced a large increase in tourists. Some Australian and New Zealand, perhaps the tourists are taking a one off opportunity to go farther away from home.

GARRETT: On the upside, the high Australian dollar will be putting up the value of remittances from Pacific Islanders living overseas and aid from Australia. To what extent is that offsetting the negative effects that you're talking about?

GRUENWALD: It's an offset, but again, I think the import channel is the dominant one. We do have aid flows in the region as you mentioned denominated in Aussie dollar and to the extent the governments received these. It helps the balance sheets and then as those flow through to the ultimate beneficiaries, groups such as NGOs, that's a positive impact as well. But that group that's benefiting I think is different from the broader consumer segment that's been hit with higher import costs. So it's an offset, but it's a partial offset, both in terms of size and in terms of the groups that are benefiting.

GARRETT: Well, what can Pacific consumers and small businesses do to protect themselves against the high Australian dollar?

GRUENWALD: There's not a whole lot, as we discussed earlier, there's a possibility of hedging those flows so the impact would be neutralised. But the Pacific is a region with very small, very open economies and whether its currencies or global growth trends or whatever, the region is going to be buffeted by these various shocks and it's just a case of having good policy, good micro-management and being able to roll with the punches as it were, because these currency movements and the global movements that hit these small economies are going to be with us for sometime.

GARRETT: I guess buying local where you can would help?

GRUENWALD: Yes, it would be a partial offset, but again the local production capacity is quite limited.

GARRETT: To what extent will the high Australian dollar fuel inflation problems for governments in the Pacific?

GRUENWALD: Well, the high Australian dollar is raising import costs, so that's a first round affect. It's something they would have to be mindful of. If the Australian dollar stays high, then we won't have further inflation. It will just mean high prices. If the Australian dollar continues to strengthen, pushing import prices ever higher, then we might have a persistent inflation problem. But right now, I think we would classify it as more of a level problem, the level of the Australian dollar is quite high, so the level of import prices in the Pacific would be quite high. Whether that translates into ongrowing inflation which is an ongoing late increase in prices, that's probably less of a concern right now.

[pima.nius] Let Fiji media report freely -- PFF renews call on Fiji regime

11:44 AM |


via PFF



Colleagues, the www.pacificfreedomforum.org link has been updated with
the text below. Thanks for your onward sharing and publication via
relevant networks.

Rarotonga, Cook Islands--Regional media monitoring body the Pacific
Freedom Forum has renewed its call on the Fiji regime to lift the
Public Emergency Regulations which were to have been replaced by the
2010 introduction of the Media Decree.
Both the decree and the continued PER have kept journalists from
reporting freely on news which isn't passed by the regime censors,
such as the defection this month of Fiji's Lieutenant-Colonel Ratu
Tevita Mara to Tonga.
Fiji-based journalists were amongst the first to find out about the
defection but had to wait more than 24 hours until a regime press
conference 'announced' the news.
Meanwhile the story had already broken outside of Fiji.
Editors in Fiji have been told to stop reporting statements from
Tevita Mara as a 'matter of national security' and some individuals
have been warned that commentary on social networks such as Facebook
is being monitored.
"We commend those colleagues whose resourcefulness and investigative
approaches around the gag laws have helped to reveal the facts of the
matter to Fiji's people," says PFF co-chair Susuve Laumaea of PNG.
"The draconian nature of Fiji's media gag laws have been shown up by
the Mara saga. If any Pacific nation has to get the first news on its
own activities from outside journalists when the best journalists to
do the job are already in-country, that's a sure sign that something
needs fixing," he says.
Fiji's media decree has effectively shut down independent and free
media in the country, and despite earlier promises has not replaced
the Public Emergency Regulations which put censors into newsrooms
across the country after a military takeover in April 2006.
"If the regime didn't censor and restrict the media in Fiji, the world
wouldn't have to depend on outside media and social networks for their
information," says PFF co-chair Monica Miller, of American Samoa.
"Pacific media are standing in solidarity to commend the perseverance
of Fiji-based colleagues trying to do their jobs under needlessly
difficult circumstances. We call on the regime to recognise that the
path to sustainable democracy must involve free and fearless reporting
of the facts from all sides of a story."--ENDS

Note to Editors:
Lieutenant-Colonel Ratu Tevita Mara, also known as Roko Ului, was
charged with making seditious comments and appeared in the Suva
Magistrates Court on May 4. He appeared with co-accused Lt-Col Pita
Driti who is charged with making seditious statements and inciting
mutiny.
They were released on bail to appear in court again on June 1, with
conditions to report to a police station and surrender their passport,
which Ratu Tevita Mara had done. A fortnight later, he made his way to
Tonga by boat and remains there as a guest of the King -- a family
relative. The witch hunt in Fiji for those who aided his flight from
his homeland continues and he has been classed as a fugitive from
justice by his former Military commander, regime leader Col Frank
Bainimarama.

[pima.nius] Vanuatu minister charged over publisher assault

11:42 AM |

via PFF


via Vanuatu Daily Post frontpage -- today.


Iauko charged over assault

By Staff Reporter

Minister of Public Utilties and Infrastructure Harry Iauko has been
charged over the assault of Daily Post Publisher Marc Neil-Jones.

But he is yet to appear in court after the magistrate court postponed
their plea last Friday as the Speaker of Parliament summoned the 3rd
extraordinary sitting of 2011 to confirm if Prime Minister Sato Kilman
commands the numbers to lead the coalition government.

The Daily Post can confirm that the following four charges have been
leveled against minister Iauko, along with eight of his associates who
accompanied him into the Daily Post office and premises on March 4,
2011.

(I) Unlawful assembly.

(II) Unlawful entry (section 143 (I) of the Penal Code.

(III)Intentional assault and;

(IV) Threatening gestures under the Penal Code Act [CAP 135].

Nevertheless the Prosecution office also revealed that it is "highly
likely" there will be amendments to the charges.

The case, scheduled to be heard last Friday has been deferred to June 10, 2011.

At this stage no charges have been laid under the Leadership Code Act.

The Leadership Code Act (CAP 240) 13 (1) on Duties of Leaders calls
for national leaders to comply and observe the law, comply with and
observe the fundamental principles of leadership contained in Article
66 of the Constitution, comply with and observe the duties,
obligations and responsibilities established by this Code or any other
enactment that affects the leader; and not influence or attempt to
influence or exert pressure on or threaten or abuse persons carrying
out their lawful duty.

It states that a leader acting in his or her capacity as a leader who
fails to abide by an enactment that imposes on the leader a duty,
obligation, or responsibility is in breach of this Code.

But this could only come into play if the Court proves the allegations
against the leaders true. -- ENDS\

[pima.nius] Re: [PFF] The Conversation: An "Academic" Media Twist from Oz

4:09 PM |

. . .


this is fantastic - wahayyyy mark hayes et al !

And a model that could be replicated (suggestion alert!!) in any country, a la frameworks discussed at PFF inaugural, Samoa. Watcha think Tavita? Would a news site written by academics be welcome? Or would governments resist the idea of informed commentary hahahah

The Conversation, the startup Australian news site, wants to bring academic expertise to breaking news

http://www.niemanlab.org/2011/05/the-conversation-the-startup-australian-news-site-wants-to-bring-academic-expertise-to-breaking-news/

 

By Nikki Usher

What would happen if you had close to 1,000 academics available to contribute to the breaking news cycle? Would it change the course, and the discourse, of news?

Andrew Jaspan thinks it will.

Jaspan, formerly an editor at The Age, the Melbourne-based newspaper, founded The Conversation, an Australian nonprofit news site, in order to combat problems that are just as present in Oz as in other news environments: shrinking newsrooms and a sound-bite-driven broadcast culture.

But The Conversation's approach is a novel one: While the site uses professional journalists as its editors, it uses academics to provide the content for the site. The goal, says the site's charter, is to provide "a fact-based and editorially-independent forum" that will "unlock the knowledge and expertise of researchers and academics to provide the public with clarity and insight into society's biggest problems" and "give experts a greater voice in shaping scientific, cultural and intellectual agendas by providing a trusted platform that values and promotes new thinking and evidence-based research."

As Jaspan explained: "Our model is not so much to use the university as a source of news, though we do report research findings as news. What we really try to do is use academics and researchers to analyze live news events, like the killing of Osama Bin Laden through to the Fukiyama earthquakes or whatever [other] complex news stories…. We are using people who are experts to give greater depth to the understanding of complex and live issues."

Expertise and relevance

The Conversation offers a number of surprises to those looking for a more in-depth approach to issues in the news:

  • Academics writing about the "now," within the news cycle, in areas related to their expertise
  • Taking experts to the people, instead of selectively filtering their expertise. Want the big voice on climate change? Then read what he or she has to say directly — rather than through a few sample quotes in a story
  • Readability. The site is set — mechanically, within its content management system — to make the stories easy (enough) to read. Using the Flesch-Kincaid readability index (set to the reading level of a 16-year-old for maximum readability), the CMS can actually tell academics when they've veered into jargon…and an editor can help steer them back
  • Real-time news updates filed twice a day — once in the morning and once in the afternoon
  • Coverage of business and the economy, environment and energy, health and medicine, politics and society, and science and technology

And, as the site's tagline promises, "academic rigour, journalistic flair."

As an academic myself, I was a bit skeptical of the idea. After all, some of the most bombastic and opinionated folks reside in academia — so I wasn't sure how exactly Jaspan's site would deliver on a promise to provide more in-depth coverage without the rhetorical flourishes that often seem to come with American academic publishing. And what about the political implications? As a group, after all, academics tend to be more liberal than the population at large.

Jaspan had three counterpoints to my concerns:

First, "every author has to fill out a profile, so the reader knows who the person is and their education. And there is the additional requirement of a disclosure of any potential conflicts which might color their judgment." Second, in response to the political question — after noting that my academics-are-liberal assertion might be a bit loaded — Jaspan replied that what The Conversation is ultimately doing is putting people in touch with "academics who are usually better informed than the general public because of their depth of knowledge and their sense of the complexity of the issue."

Third, and most important, Jaspan sees The Conversation, true to its name, as leading to public debate. "One of the key things we want to do with a public-facing media channel is to make sure we have a range of views on something like the execution of Osama Bin Ladin, and that we have different interpretations of what happened and whether or not the means in which it was done were judicial." The main goal, though: "We want to surprise our readers. We don't want to give them the usual explanations, alternative insights, and viewpoints — and that will lead to lively conversation."

Jaspan's backers come from both the nonprofit and for-profit realms. The Conversation is backed by Ernst & Young, among other corporate supporters. And from academia, he has drawn on some of the top Australian research universities, in addition to Australia's Department of Education. To find the academics, Jaspan and his staff did a "census" of academics based on their areas of expertise. Then, by word of mouth, they asked participating academics to recommend colleagues who would make good contributors to the site.

Immediacy and impact

But, again, the skeptical academic in me had another question: Why on earth would a busy academic take time away from publishing (ahem) to write for The Conversation?

Part of the answer has to do with Australia's current approach to university promotion. Research and teaching form part of the core methods of evaluation, but a third arm of assessment is an academic's quality of public engagement and social impact. According to Jaspan, Australian universities are putting a new stress on the third.

And since The Conversation gives each writer a dashboard to measure his or her own metrics, the academic can then use those data for his or her professional promotion and evaluation, actually measuring his or her social impact in a quantifiable way for university administrators — based on, say, retweets or traffic for a particular story. The academics don't get paid for their work. Instead, though, they might pick up speaking engagements or consulting gigs.

There's also the instant-gratification factor. While traditional academic publishing generally makes academics wait a year (or more) to see something in print, Jaspan said that some academics relish being able to turn something around in two hours.

Currently, The Conversation is still in beta form, with Jaspan looking to add more audience engagement and commenting features, as well as richer multimedia. Jaspan estimates that the site is getting about 120,000 to 150,000 visitors each month — with those metrics rising by "10 percent a week."

But Jaspan isn't seeing, or hoping for, an audience purely composed of academic eggheads. "This is not a site for academics," he notes. "This is not a site for university sector. This is a site for every day public discourse."

ANALYSIS OF BSA RULING AGAINST 'UNFAIR' CAMPBELL LIVE REPORT

Analysis by Alex Perrottet, contributing editor of Pacific Media Watch

AUCKLAND: (Pacific Media Watch): The Broadcasting Standards Authority ruled earlier this month that the complaint by the Attorney-General of Samoa against Campbell Live's report on the tsunami would not be upheld.

In response, the Samoan Prime Minister has vowed to appeal against the decision.

The Attorney-General lodged complaints against both the September 27 report and the November 1 report aired on TV3 in New Zealand.

Both complaints were brought on the grounds of accuracy and fairness, however the BSA ruled it did not have the authority to rule on the grounds of accuracy, as it involved determining whether the action taken by the Samoan government after the tsunami was adequate.

"It is not the role of this authority, nor are we able, to determine what action by the Samoan government would have been 'adequate' following a catastrophic natural disaster," it said.

The BSA report, signed on behalf of the authority by chair Peter Radich, said the Samoan government would have been better advised to make those complaints under the category of "balance".

SAMOAN PM TO APPEAL AGAINST BSA RULING ON CAMPBELL LIVE TSUNAMI REPORT

BSA rules against Samoan Campbell Live complaint
AUCKLAND (PMW): The Broadcasting Standards Authority ruled earlier this month against the complaint by the Attorney-General of Samoa against Campbell Live's report on the tsunami reconstruction funding controversy.

The Attorney-General lodged complaints against both reports broadcast by TV3 on September 27 and November 1.

The BSA gave its ruling on May 5.

BSA report on ruling 4165:

By Aigaletaule'ale'ā F. Tauafiafi

APIA: (Samoa Observer/Pacific Media Watch): Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi has renewed his attack on New Zealand journalist John Campbell, describing him as "childish".

He has also taken a swipe at the Tautua Party leaders, telling them they were "shallow and simple".

Closer to home, Tuilaepa has instructed the Attorney-General to take his complaints about Campbell Live's TV3 report to the highest court in New Zealand.

Tuilaepa said: "The most important thing is to protect the integrity and good name of Samoa and its leaders."

Money, he said, was not the issue in pursuing the case when the good name of the country had been dragged through the international mud.

"This is not about being embarrassed or being vindictive," said Tuilaepa.

"The only thing the government wants is to remove the false impression that money has been misused because of misreporting.

"The fact is John Campbell misreported."

Tuilaepa said what was really "shameful is [that] this palagi went with the report containing all the answers to his questions about what was done.

"That 862 houses were built, water was connected, power connected, roads built, and yet his report questioned all these and said nothing had been done with the money that arrived.

"The sole reason in pursuing this case is to protect the good name of Samoa.

"And also to ensure the reports are accurate, balanced and that they maintained their contextual integrity.

"Especially when it is noted that Campbell's report would have been a credible one if they had not been provided with the information in answer to what they were investigating."

Tuilaepa said the reason Campbell did not honour the three meetings scheduled so the two of them could visit the sites together, was clear.

"The truth is," said Tuilaepa, "John Campbell did not want to go and see for himself because then he would see that the tsunami report we gave him is true.

"It means he would not have a story."

Tuilaepa also blamed a number of local journalists who, he said, "colluded" with Campbell.

"What our people and the Tautua Party forget is that they are hanging out our country to be embarrassed and tainted in front of the world."

Tuilaepa revisited the night John Campbell "ambushed" him at Vaitele, saying: "Those are the mannerisms of palagi who do not understand the protocols and station of a national leader.

"His behaviour is that of a small child with no manners." 

Tuilaepa said the Tautua leadership's persistent call for a financial report on the tsunami "is part of my continuing role as their economics lecturer".

Tuilaepa has a Masters in Economics.

"I have to continue teaching the Opposition on this matter. All the monies are in the tsunami report which is tabled in Parliament and then it is passed on.

"And yet they are still asking.

"So if they keep on harping about the financial report and support these unsubstantiated reports by overseas journalists, then it highlights even more the weak and shallow calibre of leaders there are in the Opposition."

Tuilapea said what was important was that "the New Zealand and Australia leaders had endorsed the government's good work.

"They have issued reports and have gone to visit what's happened and they are happy."

His advice to the Tautua Party?

"Look at this in more depth and with substance because they will impact negatively on them."
