In a statement, MP Bulitavu said the radio station was trying to “ferment disrespect against the Methodist Church.”

“The purpose of the Legend News item is uncertain.”

Legend FM journalists Vijay Narayan and Iva Danford co-wrote a story titled Is it Constitutional? last week that caught the ire of the SODELPA parliamentarian.

“This kind of reporting of non-news is arguably divisive and may breach the criminal laws on inciting communal and religious division in Fiji.”

Statement from SODELPA MP Mosese Bulitvau.
