The detention of respected TVNZ journalist Barbara Dreaver is unacceptable and Foreign Minister Winston Peters must seek assurances that no other journalists are detained in Nauru for doing their job, National’s Foreign Affairs spokesperson Todd McClay says.

“Freedom of the press is a fundamental part of any democracy and journalists must be free to tell important stories.

“Mr Peters must seek assurances from the Nauru Government that other members of the media will not be under threat of detention or interference.”
