There is no confusion on my part as to what transpired in the Cabinet Meetings and I shall leave it at that.

I read in Clive Edwards’s interview that he accused me of proposing the Media Operator’s Act. This is wholly untrue but as Edwards is running for parliament his wild accusations are, I suppose, understandable. I was opposed to the anti media laws on the grounds that they were not our style of doing things in this country. - hrh

Ruthlessly defending and implementing the King’s and Royal Family’s wishes, and employing his Special Branch Police to spy on the community to isolate dissent, few would doubt that he has been a formidable opponent of Tonga’s pro-democracy campaigners ever since he was appointed by the King as a minister in 1996. Interview with Clive Edwards. Part Two. By Pesi Fonua
