Amnesty brushes off comments by Fiji AG

From , 4:05 pm on 10 February 2017

Amnesty International has brushed off strong comments made by Fiji's Attorney-General about the group's latest report into human rights in Fiji.

Fiji Village reports that Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum told Parliament this week that Amnesty's 2016 report is legally biased, factually flawed and lacking intelluctual integrity.

The report details beatings, rape, sexual violence and other abuses by security forces who act with impunity.

Our reporter Amelia Langford spoke to Amnesty's Pacific Researcher, Kate Schuetze, and started by asking her what she made of the Attorney-General's comments.
