Is Pita Driti on leave?

Sources say the Land Force Commander of the Fiji Military Forces Colonel Pita Driti has been sent on leave once again.

We've been told his absence from the Queen Elizabeth Barracks came on the orders of army commander Frank Bainimarama. In July Driti was forced to go on leave but returned to work after three days.

Coupfourpointfive has been told in the latest case of sabre-rattling Driti was sent on leave after he engineered a military council decision to try and terminate interim Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayd-Khaiyum.

Sources confirmed a letter has been given to Sayed-Khaiyum by the military council.

Driti is also believed to be unhappy that Colonel Mohammed Aziz is the acting commander while Frank Bainimarama is in Malaysia.
