PIMA slams Samoan newspaper over image of deceased

Ka tuku tono ōkawa te Rōpū Pāpāho o Te Moananui a Kiwa i Aotearoa nei ki te Rōpū Samoa Observer newsgroup mō tana tā i te whakaahua o te tūpāpaku o tētahi whakawahine. E ai ki te pūrongo a Sunday Samoa, te āhua nei i mate whakamomori taua whakawahine. 

E takariri ana te Rōpū Pāpāho o Te Moananui a Kiwa i Aotearoa i te whakatau a Sunday Samoa. Koinei tā tē māngai o te rōpū tā Judy Bataillard.

E ai ki a Bataillard, “We will send a complaint certainly to SON which is the Samoa observer newsgroup. We're expressing our concerns on that kind of coverage its appalling in breach of ethics and standards of journalism.”

I tā a Sunday Samoa i tēnei tuhinga ki te whārangi tuatahi me te pikitia mō tēnei whakawahine i mate i te whakamomori. He tuahine te niupepa nei ki te Samoa Observer.

Hei tā Bataillard, “It is appalling.  I have no idea why they went ahead to publish those photographs especially when it is insensitive content.”

He tauira rorohiko te whakawahine i mate, ā, he pononga ia nō te hāhi katorika. E ai ki a Judy Bataillard ko te tūmanako a PIMA mā tā rātou amu ōkawa ka noho matatū ake te Samoa Observer ki a rātou mahi kawe kōrero.

Hei tā Bataillard, “It’s going to entail the breach of ethics.  It’s also going to entail the insensitive nature in which they ran the story.”

E tere ana hoki te takariri huri noa i a Pukamata. Ko te kī a ētahi he tuhinga kiriuka. Hei tā Bataillard tēra hoki pea ngā pātai mo te tiakitanga ki te hapori whakawahine, takatapuhi hoki.

E ai ki a Bataillard, “I think they need to be sensitive towards the nature of how they run their stories.  Once they've got this story out they need to be able to try and put things in place where they'll be able to send a message out to those that may be going through those kind of situations- where they may feel isolated or not part of the community.”

Ka tuku a PIMA i tā rātou tono ōkawa hei te paunga o tēnei wiki.
