Vanuatu Daily Post director has work permit rejected
3:25 pm GMT+12, 07/11/2019, Vanuatu

The media director of Vanuatu's largest newspaper has had his work permit rejected.
 
The publisher of the Daily Post, Dan McGarry, had been made to re-apply for his work permit by the labour department, but that was yesterday rejected.
 
In a statement, McGarry said he was told his position should have been localised, but he believes it was because of his company's coverage of the government.
 
He said he was summoned by the prime minister, Charlot Salwai, in July, where he was berated for his so-called negative reporting.
 
McGarry says he will fight the decision.
