Channel 2 Fiji limited's license suspended

12:25 pm on 28 November 2007

A company which was given a licence to operate Fiji's second free to air television service a month ago, has already had it suspended.

The move follows a dispute among the company's shareholders.

Two Fiji shareholders and a Papua New Guinea finance company have pulled out of Channel 2 Fiji Limited.

As well, the police have raided the home of the company's chief executive.

The minister of communications Taito Waradi, says there is a possible breach of licence conditions by TV 2 and its licence will remain suspended until he receives a report on the issue from his officials.
