Voreqe Bainimarama continues to try to bluff his way out of the growing stink over the corrupt behaviour of his sidekick, the illegal attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.
He's told Radio Tarana and the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation that anyone with evidence of corruption of nepotism should forward them to his office or 'the appropriate authorites."
That's a case of the corrupt investigating the corrupt!
Coupfourpointfive exposed the shady deals and kick backs Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum has been involved in.
Bainimarama admits "allegations" have been made against some ministers – even by people who support the government.
But he reckons it's all jealousy and waning interest in reforms:
“If you have evidence to base allegations please feel free to direct them to the appropriate authorities for further action, in fact if you want to you can direct them to my office if you have any allegations, but there is no evidence to substantiate these allegations, it is pure I guess jealousy, and some of them are even coming from government workers and people who support the government – because there is a conflict of interest or their interest is waning with the reforms being carried out. These are allegations – if you have anything feel free to come forward.”Coupfourpointfive reiterates again: Sayed Khaiyum has been lining his pockets and it's time he went.
