The Fiji Sun is a daily newspaper published in Fiji since September 1999 and is owned by Sun (Fiji) News Limited.[1] An Internet edition is also published.

Its website claims that the paper is wholly owned by Fijian nationals and that it employs a total of 92 staff, as well as some 40 subcontractors.

In March 2008, the newspaper's publisher, Australian citizen Russell Hunter, was deported on the orders of the interim Defence Minister, Ratu Epeli Ganilau, who claimed that Hunter was a threat to "national security". Opponents of the military-backed government, which took power in a coup d'état in 2006, claim that the step was a blatant attempt to intimidate the media.
