FIJI: Commentator backs Fiji regime's role in 'coup culture' change
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
Thakur Ranjit Singh is a former Fiji Daily Post publisher and an Indo-Fijian political commentator, who now lives in New Zealand.
Since 2006 Singh's comments that Fiji's media is part of the reason the country kept having coups, and his support of the interim government, has seen him repeatedly attacked by those who oppose it, and led to him being described as a coup apologist.
Recently he published an article that looks at the island nation's coup culture since 1987 and the impact of the media there, and it is likely it will result him becoming a target once more.
