Fiji TV gets six-month licence renewal

5:58 pm on 2 July 2012

Fiji Television Limited's existing broadcast licence has been extended for a further six months by the Communications Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Fiji TV's 12-year licence was set to expire at the weekend but the Fiji Village website reports the television company saying it has been given the green light to continue operations at least until the end of this year.

Last month, the regime issued a decree that empowers the minister to revoke or vary a television licence if the licensee is found to have breached the Media Code of Ethics under the Media Industry Development Decree.

Earlier in June, Fiji TV was reportedly warned that its licence was at risk for giving coverage to two former prime ministers.
