SUVA, Fiji Islands (December 18, 1999 – Radio Australia)---Prime Minister Mahendra Chaudhry has filed a lawsuit against the publisher and two employees of one of Fiji’s three local dailies, the Fiji Times.

Chaudhry's lawyers filed a writ of summons against the newspaper, saying it had described the prime minister as a liar and accused him of abusing his position.

Chaudhry is seeking damages from the newspaper's publisher, editor and editor-in-chief, claiming a report it carried has tainted his character.
