Sayed-Khaiyum dismisses US state report as pedestrian

The Fiji Government has predictably lashed out at the US State Department’s report on the state of human rights, with attorney general Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum dismissing the report as pedestrian and biased.

The report was released earlier this month and condemned the human rights situation in Fiji.

In an interview with the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, Sayed-Khaiyum says the report lacks depth and real understanding of what Fiji citizens need right now.

“That some of the issue that the report seems to highlight seems rather pedestrian in terms of their approach. Because some of the things they’re alluding to for example the ethnic composition of those in Cabinet. Those sorts of supposed problems they’re pointing out now existed prior to the 5th of December 06. So they’re making it a bit deal now when they obviously didn’t make a big deal of it previously.”

Sayed-Khaiyum goes on to say the report is biased because the authors or those that provided the information are politicians and those who don’t like the current government.

He told FBC: “Indeed, one has to question the integrity of the report itself and those who’ve actually written the report and their sources of information. Are the people in Fiji, perhaps the US embassy people or other sources of information objective, or in fact tainted by their own political views? Those are some things that have to be considered.”

Sayed-Khaiyum said the Bainimarama Government would push ahead with their planned reforms, as it would build a better Fiji for the future.

the only better way fiji will be reform is to exterminate that vermin of Bainimarama and Khaiyum and the rest of his cronies will surely follow.

I think he just described his own performance and attitude!

Aiyaz is a two-faced monster. On the one hand he warns all his employees (especially the young ones) not to go into any nightclubs for fear of blurting out some secrecies in his office dealings and on the other hand he presents a tainted picture to the outside world of someone who does the right things. You have prevented the freedom of your workers to enjoy a deserving night life out from the hectic and hellish office which you have created for your workers. Doesn't it bother you that you serve a God that commands honesty and justice. Isn't that a principle of Islam! Shame on this character!

"...tainted by their own political views..."

Views such as a belief in democratic elections and freedom of speech?

Who does he think he is fooling.

Don't know what the future holds for this man? But one thing is certain - he'll never work in the US - AUS - NZ - EU etc etc.

It is okay for Khaiyum to be talking like that but he should open up the debate in public and the media and then and only then will he get all sides of the issue.

He can attack and criticise the report that condemns their military regime but it is all one sided from his and the military's views. So this is a biased view not the US State Report.
