Fiji: Play fair: A human rights agenda

As Fiji’s teams return from the Commonwealth Games, and as the country prepares for elections in September, Amnesty International is calling on the Fijian government to play fair and respect human rights. The organization is also calling on political parties and candidates to publicly commit to ensuring that international human rights laws and standards are protected. Fiji’s current government must commit to respecting human rights in the lead up to elections, including by lifting restrictions on freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association and refraining from harassment of political candidates, journalists and others.
