Coupfourpointfive has been told the Military Council still wants Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum removed from his position as interim Attorney General.
The Military Council's attempts since July to have Sayed-Khaiyum sacked have been in vain because of resistance from interim Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, who was not satisfied with the candidates proposed by top military officers as his replacement.
One of them was the Attorney-General in Mahendra Chaudhry's Labour Government, Anand Singh, who lost his job in June as a legal consultant for Fiji National Provident Fund.
But sources have confirmed the Council has once again renewed its efforts to have Sayed-Khaiyum removed.
Our sources have established that RFMF's Land Force Commander, Colonel Pita Driti, has been personally contacting prominent businessmen and other personalities in the private sector, asking them to give him evidence of any business deals or any other activity that can be classified as corrupt, that have been conducted by Sayed-Khaiyum.
Coupfourpointfive has been told Driti has been the strongest critic of Sayed-Khaiyum and his determiknation to have the interim AG sacked is a major reason why Bainimarama is sending him away from Fiji, by nominating him to lead a 200 men peacekeeping mission to the Middle East.
