Australian public broadcaster ABC banned from Pacific forum

06 Juillet, 2018, 14:04 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

The Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery foreshadowed a boycott on Wednesday, promising that if the ABC is banned, the arranged press pack would disband.

Australia's national broadcaster ABC has been banned from an annual Pacific forum by host nation Nauru for "harassment and lack of respect", after critical coverage of the country's government and its controversial camp for asylum seekers.

Mr Turnbull would prefer events like the forum were open to all media but said it "is up to Nauru".

Nauru on Monday announced no representative of the ABC reporting will be granted a visa "due to this organisation's blatant interference in Nauru's domestic politics prior to the 2016 election".

"The ABC does not intend to vacate our position in the media pool covering the Pacific Islands Forum in Nauru", he said in a statement earlier in the week.

We consulted with the Australian government and nominated an AAP reporter, an AAP photographer and an ABC camera operator to form this media pool, who would share their work with others.

"A Nauruan Government statement said:" "No person can enter Nauru without a valid visa and anyone attempting to do so, irrespective of who they are travelling with, will not be allowed entry".

"We oppose the Nauru edict because it is wrong in this instance and because it sets a risky precedent", he said.

The ABC had been slated to take one of three journalist positions available to Australian media, said gallery president David Crowe, who is also the chief political correspondent for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

It says the Forum Secretariat is committed to working closely with the Nauru Government and media organisations to ensure the best possible outcome. "The Nauru government must not dictate who should and shouldn't be attending, nor should it be issuing guidance on what journalists can and cannot report".

The Forum Secretariat said while it supported media freedom, the press also had a responsibility to be factual in its reporting.

The United States has promised to resettle up to 1,250 refugees that Australia has banished to Nauru and the poor South Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea.
