Coupfourpointfive stands by its story that Brij Lal was punched on the chin by senior military officer, Sitiveni Qiliho, when he was taken in for questioning by the military.
We note that Professor Lal has denied any physical abuse in the Australian media and we conclude this is because his wife still works and lives in Fiji and anything he says could have an effect on her.
We have reported stories in the past that others have found unbelievable but which later turned out to be true. We also trust our well-placed sources.
On another issue, we've been informed by our loyal followers in Fiji that access to this blog has become difficult.
Some people can still access the site while others who previously could, have been cut off for some reason.
Any explanation from our readers in Fiji on why this is happening will be greatly appreciated.
