Former Miss South Pacific Miss Fiji, Miss Hibiscus and Fiji First Party supporter Anne Dunn Baleilevuka has been appointed as the Commissioner of the Online Safety Commission which will come into effect from the first of next month.

Dunn is a lawyer and a graduate of the University of the South Pacific.

Attorney General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed -Khaiyum while making the announcement says the main objective of the Online Safety Act is to promote responsible online behaviour and to promote a safe online culture and environment that addresses cyber bullying, cyber stalking, internet trolling and exposure to offensive or harmful content particularly in respect of children.

Sayed -Khaiyum says it is also to deter harm caused to individuals by electronic communications and provide an efficient means of redress for such individuals.

Commissioner Anne Dunn says one thing they have seen this year is that there is an intense platform of people being able to speak or do things online and not having any sort of repercussion for their actions.

Dunn says the Commission will assist people.

The Commission was allocated $300,000 in the 2018-2019 National Budget.
