This was the statement from a lecturer at the University of Papua New Guinea during a celebration of the international media freedom day yesterday.
“Journalists in the country do not often face these kinds of situations,” stated Jimmy Veneo, a journalism lecturer.
“That’s probably why it [media day] is not celebrated too much in PNG.
“Information suppression is also a way of abusing information,” added Veneo.
Veneo further reminded students about the importance of properly disseminating information as failure to do so would result in information suppression.
