The Fiji Labour Party has reacted to Coupfourpointfive's story about its leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, being arrested before a goat curry lunch was ready.
The FLP says Chaudhry is a strict vegetarian on Friday, so it's inconceivable he requested the meat dish. It says both his driver and Sanjeet Maharaj, are vegetarians.
Coupfourpointfive stands by the information it was given and notes that as a devotee of Lord Hanuman, Tuesday is the day the former prime minister devotes to his faith.
Coupfourpointfive also notes that Chaudhry ordered red pork for himself on a union trip to Australia in 1998, on a Tuesday. Hanuman devotees are strictly prohibited from eating pork and eating it on Tuesdays is crass!
The FLP also says it's impossible Chaudhry would've been drinking grog so early in the morning since he was arrested at 11 o'clock. Everyone knows yaqona is the chosen drink of most social or important gatherings, as was on this occassion in Rakiraki,no matter what time of the day it is!
We've also been told that after the court appearance on Monday in Tavua, Chaudhry and co went to Baijnath Singh's house only to take off when they realised the police were watching them.
Coupfourpointfive reiterates what we said earlier - Chaudhry (as he himself has this week admitted) was being monitored by police who knew exactly how long he had been in the Rakiraki house on Friday before they arrested him.
Coupfourpointfive has no reason to doubt the information it has been given.
