Sources have told Coupfourpointfive that the Land Force Commander Pita Driti and Commanding officer of the 3rd Infantry Regiment (3FIR) Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara, also known as Roko Lui, have been suspended by military commander Frank Bainimarama.
However, both are still at Queen Elizabeth Barracks.
If reports about their suspension are correct then both Driti and Roko Lui are defying Bainimarama.
Both were at the morning tea at Officers Mess on Monday in which Bainimarama was noticeably absent, reportedly resting after his Vanuatu trip.
According to sources, Colonel Mohamed Aziz is technically the Land Force Commander but Driti has publicly stated that he was on a day's lave last week and is still the Land Force Commander.
Roko Lui has not made any public statements.
