What do Virisila Buadromo, Arshad Daud, Laisa Digitaki, Imraz Iqbal and Pita Waqavonovono all have in common???
Well for starters they were rounded up and taken in separate incidents to the army barracks in Nabua.
There were also warned at the time to stop saying things that would incite unrest in the country. So they publicly shut up, however now they blog away happily on anti Government blog sites.
Imraz Iqbal, is a well known political activist and former Television journalist. Together with Laisa Digitaki, he is the co-owner of a magazine, Fiji Living.
Iqbal strongly condemned the Republic of Fiji Military Forces for 5 December 2006. An article he published in Fiji Living resulted in been summoned To QEB and warning him against speaking out against the Military.
In September of 2008 iqbal again had a brush with the law. This time the Fiji Police force alleged him to be in possession of the missing gun of the 2000 coup.
Interesting background isn’t it. Thank you for your contribution to the world of blogging.
