Wikileaks reveal NZ is spying on Fiji

The latest Wikileaks cables on Fiji have revealed that New Zealand has been spying on Fiji before and after the 2006 coup.

The cables, obtained by Fairfax New Zealand, says New Zealand has been using the Waihopai communications base to spy on the military and passing the intelligence to the United States Government.

New Zealand officials have always denied they were spying. 

The extent or method of the spying is not clear except for New Zealand being able to tap mobile phones in Fiji.

According to Fairfax, the cables reveal that the US deputy secretary Margaret McKean said  "New Zealand views the situation in Fiji as `acute', and appreciates USG [US Government] support for the Pacific Island Forum position on Fiji".

What was intercepted during the spying is not disclosed in the cables.

We shouldn’t clutter our heads with useless information’s this revelations is nothing new in fact

I cannot find the relevancy in disseminating such information.

Most countries are spied on by other countries so why is it important for NZ to spy on Fiji.

It’s not like they were in a hurry to commit their troops to restore some form normalcy.

So say this after me “Do Not Clutter Our Heads With Useless Information’s.

Hope the New Year will bring love among our fellowmen.

My letter to ASIO and the following phone call from their Office in sydney 4 days later, may have initiated Australia, New Zealand and other interested parties to pay more attention to Fiji's problems.

In July 2005, I advised ASIO of a potential coup in Fiji.
So no doubt, Frank and Co. have virtually been under scrutiny since then at least !

Jake, are you really that stupid or just simply oblivious?

The recent Wikileaks release is exciting because it is a global phenomenon where the governments of the world have been forced to reveal their clandestine activities - perhaps one that will result in a new form of media freedom (though not for Fiji eh?)

Whether or not you find something 'relevant' may not be important to anyone else. I suspect that noone here, or anywhere else, finds your "irrelevancies" particularly interesting.

Wikileaks is the cyber version of CIA designed Alqaida terrorism (aimed at getting more government control over its citizens). W/leaks's intended result is to ultimately make world governments go for internet control & censorship.So we should be expecting more not-so-secret info to come in the future. We knew from the media then that Qarase was advised by the PM of NZ in 2006 that a coup was imminent. How would she know this? Thru intelligence ofcource-spying. Both Aust. & NZ have been doing this for years taking over from Uk since the colonial days.They ahs all the stats and info on our potential minerals, resources etc.so they can use for their own advantage. Why arent we doing the same to them? Because we are idiots!

There goes Mark Manning again. Even the intelligence gathering agencies in Australia is beholden to one Mark Manning! Pls leave us, Fijians alone, Mark. We don't need you to find us our way. We have much more clue and resilience than you would like to gvive us credit for.

Mr Ulukau doesn't really care because he is too busy spying on his own people and bashing them up (too many to name) or kill them (eg Rabaka) make them run around the oval; kick people out of the country. He is a thug and you soldiers are pathetic for supporting this idiot.

There is absolutely nothing exciting about the stolen documents in fact it’s not a global phenomenon but then again it is to be expected from someone with limited intellectual acuity to hail the theft of classified documents.

There are proper channels to acquire these documents without being complicit and I just hope all those that are complicit be subjected to the fullest extent of the law.

My friend do not clutter your head with useless information’s the reason is very simple nothing would come of it except those people will be caught and will be made to rot in prison.

You have enough on your plate to worry about the rest of the world just think of Fiji and how
Bainimarama is bringing about the much needed change or is it Mutatis mutandis.

Come back to Fiji and support Bainimarama Fiji needs you.

Do not be an ostrich.

Hey C.45 this is worth a read, no mention of Fiji but follows the wider debate and offers glimpses of US.
A Government Caught Up in Mendacity and Lies

The reaction to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, tells us all we need to know about the total corruption of our "modern" world, which in fact is a throwback to the Dark Ages.

Some member of the United States government released to WikiLeaks the documents that are now controversial. The documents are controversial, because they are official US documents and show all too clearly that the US government is a duplicitous entity whose raison d’etre is to control every other government.

The media, not merely in the US but also throughout the English-speaking world and Europe, has shown its hostility to WikiLeaks. The reason is obvious. WikiLeaks reveals truth, while the media covers up for the US government and its puppet states.

Why would anyone with a lick of sense read the media when they can read original material from WikiLeaks? The average American reporter and editor must be very angry that his/her own cowardice is so clearly exposed by Julian Assange. The American media is a whore, whereas the courageous blood of warriors runs through WikiLeaks’ veins.

@ Jake

What Wikileaks did is not theft. They didn't "steal" classified documents.

"support Bainimarama Fiji needs you."

I doubt it. Frank doesn't need any people around him asking questions - he needs the stupid, the compliant and the passive people like yourself - those that refuse to ask questions and ignore reality (much like an Ostrich with its head in the sand).

Radiolucas,

You're so very right! Bai needs people who do as he says and not ask questions. "Yes-people", so very like the joker you're referring to.

So far your comments is speculative and grasping at straws now listen here boy clean that wax out of your ears for you are about to get a lesson assume that person A takes from his employer $500 something you are well aware of, is this not an act of committing a crime.

It is better known as larceny by
servant or simply put theft, now assumes person B accepts the $500 from person A is person B complicit or not complicit?

Now may I suggest you take Uncle Bai up on that offer and show that the KaiViti in you actually have the mental capacity to prove your detractors wrong?

For once think of your fellowmen now jump on your one trick pony and head back to Suva.

Exactly whatI meant - dysfunctional - confused about what their charter is? Wrong agency gives you confirmation about something it should have passed on. Wait till you meet DFAT?
