3FIR refuse to guard Bainimarama

Fiji's interim prime minister and army commander, Frank Bainimarama is no longer being guarded by the military's best soldiers, belonging to the Third Infantry Regiment Unit.

The Commodore used to be guarded by the 3FIR but sources say they've been pulled out since Monday.

Coupfourpointfive has been told that the commanding officer for the 3FIR, Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara, also known as Roko Ului, pulled his men out, because they're not happy over the new retirement age.

The Landforce commander for the 3FIR is Pita Driti.

Commodore Bainimarama is instead being guarded by the ordinary Military Police.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story said Roko Lui, when it should've been Roko Ului.
