Free speech

Juffa stresses on free speech

Northern Governor and deputy chairman of the Permanent Parliamentary Committee on Public Accounts, Gary Juffa, made this statement following the purported sacking of EMTV’s head of news and current affairs, Neville Choi.

“We are supposed to be a democratic nation where people are supposed to be able to express themselves freely,” stated Juffa.

“Journalists are supposed to report without fear or favour – facts – and we are supposed to promote the principles of democracy that allow for free speech.”

Meantime, Choi has been reinstated today as of 8am.
