Fiji: the hunt is still on

The Fijian military claims it is tailing three people suspected of running blogs critical of the regime. So much for their claim on Tuesday that they had given up the hunt. As expected, they simply lied, and are quitehappy to continue to arrest and beat people for exercising their fundamental right to criticise the government.

Meanwhile, in another scary development, hyde.n.ceek reports that New Zealand lawyer Janet Mason was attacked in her home on Tuesday or Wednesday night by masked thugs. Mason was accused by the military of providing legal advice to the Great Council of Chiefs which resulted in their rejecting the military's candidate for Vice President. Interestingly, the only thing taken was her laptop. Looks just a little supicious, neh?
