Fiji: Russell Hunter Declared Prohibited Immigrant

Office Of Minister For Defence National Security And Immigration Media Statement - Hunter Declared A Prohibited Immigrant

The Interim Government has today confirmed that it has declared Mr Russell Hunter, Publisher and Managing Director of the Fiji Sun Newspaper, a Prohibited Immigrant.

This declaration follows a proper investigation by the relevant authorities, which clearly established that Mr Hunter was conducting himself in a manner prejudicial to the peace, defence, public safety, public order, security and stability of the sovereign state of the Fiji Islands.

As the recipient of a work permit from the Government of Fiji, it was incumbent upon Mr Hunter to be vigilant of his status as a foreign national resident and working in Fiji.

Hunter has clearly violated the terms and conditions of his status in Fiji under the immigration laws of Fiji and the Department of Immigration has accordingly exercised it statutory responsibility in getting him declared a Prohibited Immigrant.
