Breaking news! Major military probe underway and fourth man questioned

Frank Bainimarama's illegal regime is carrying out a major military probe into attempts to overthrow him.

A fourth man was taken in for questioning last night - Felix Anthony, the General Secretary of the Fiji Trade Union Congress - and it's believed two high ranking officers have also been questioned.

The officers have been named to Coupfourpointfive as the deposed land force commander, Pita Driti, and Brigadier General, Mohammed Aziz. 

We are seeking more information about this development, especially the inclusion of Aziz in the sweep, but military sources have told us the regime is currently conducting a major army operation to identify dissenters and plotters.

We've been told the three men who were questioned earlier this week - former cabinet ministers Poseci Bune and Anand Singh, plus businessman Ben Padarath - were interrogated about 'suspicious' documents.

Coupfourpointfive has been told documents, apparently of a plan, were found in Padarath's Suva home.

Readers will recall that late last year, tension and soured relations boiled over at camp and it was widely believed disenchanted officers were to remove Bainimarama.

Footnote: Felix Anthony was released after five hours in custody. Padarath is in hospital for burns received during his interrogation. See earlier Coupfourpointfive stories.

  1. G8 stuff, it's good to hear that there may have been a plan to arrest Frank and Co.

    It means now that Frank, Aiyaz and the Military Council will have to watch their backs.
    Fronts and sides !

    Why waste money on bigger prisons when Nukulau's available?

  7. Also great to see that people are doing something and not just sitting back and waiting. Hats off to all those planning against the illegal regime. It is only a matter of time before they will flee.

  9. Nukulau is too good for them, may be on the disputed Merniva reef or whatever its name is. Then the Tongan PM can go and visit Bai whenever he likes.

  12. These people (military) will go after their own shadows, they kump atany small sound, they are bloody nervous as hell.

  13. They will all go to prision, every one of them will go to prison. We must keep on pushing for reform and democracy. They have done it in places no one could ever imagine, Egypt and Tunisia where dictators ruled for 30 and 23 years. Look what happened to them?
    They got kicked in the nuts and ran. Come on Fiji, if they can do it after so long, we can make the difference earlier and cannot afford to let them sit in power for 10 or 20 years. We must keep the pressure up and its only a matter of time before these cowards will run. Then we catch them and jail them all...thats not too much to ask now is it?

  14. Voreqe's time is nearly up, and he knows it. Justice will be done Voreqe and your cronies. Question is, where will he hide? Naboro comes to mind, or St Giles

  15. I am sure that they didn't get everybody - the military cannot arrest and beat up everyone in Fiji. This is just another scare campaign - it is obvious that Frank is paranoid and worried about just who is waiting in the shadows.

    To repeat the other commentators: it is simply a matter of time.

  16. Major military probe....sounds dangerous for those being taken in, especially knowing what those sick Bai puppets are capable of!

  17. Drunk with greed & powerFebruary 14, 2011 at 2:15 PM

    But everyone in this country is so drunk with greed and power, what guarantee do we have that another takeover will take us immediately to democratic rule?

  18. Thank God Frank did what he did in 2006. If LQ was stilling running the country he would have emassed millions like the billions MuBarak has done. Frank you keep it. Your detractors are the ones who were part of the LQ corruption of part of NFP (Never Fit for Parliment) group. Go you good thing. Keep it up. While you there, please give Pramod Rae a shave.

  19. @Theme Park Operator......Nukulau is owned by the native people,so stop abusing what we have.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh yes the military have the capabilities to summarily arrest and thrash anyone they so chose.

    Fiji is blessed to have so many bush psychologist they can diagnose any given situation on the run.

    I hope they just keep running and dont look back.

  21. I think we should start from the Top and work down. We jail Bai first , then Gates and Pryde, then just continue working down. That way we can show the people that there is no point in doing Coups.

  22. am told ben padarath was beaten pretty bad - ribs cracked. jaw broken. burnt by hot water and cigarettes. welcome to the new reign of terror.

  23. It will take time but people power will prevail. Frank and Co have stepped over the line..all in the disguise of getting rid of corruption etc etc. They have been sucking money like there is no tomorrow. Your time has come Frank...heed the warning like Hosni Mubarak did and sneak out of the country before you face the might of the ordinary citizens whom you have tortured, surpressed under your dictatorship. Just leave NOW you scumbag.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Who cares..this is another case where the corrupt cleaning up the corrupted.

    Bainimarama's regime is a mafioso organisation instilling their own version of criminal law and order which is in reality, anarchy.These raids and beatings conducted by Voreqe's VMF henchmen is also an indication of mob justice instead of good governance.

    Banimarama's junta = no credibility, no class and no direction.

  25. Good to hear that Australia is still firm in its decision that Fiji should return to Democracy before 2014.

  27. Remember the story of king Johoshaphat?

    2 Chronicles 20:5. "Then Johosphaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord..6...and said 12. ..For we have no power over this great multitude that is coming against us; nor we do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. 14. Then the Spirit of the Lord...15...said, "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Johoshaphat!....Do not be afraid nor be dismayed because of this great multitude, because the battle is not yours but God's. 17. You will not need to fight in this battle, Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you..for the Lord is with you. 22. Now when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. 23. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood against the inhabitants of Mount Seir, they help to destroy one another. 24. For when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they look toward the multitudes; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one has escaped."

    These were the same group of people who overthrew our legally elected government in 2006. Now, they are helping each other to destroy one another. "The heathen are sunk down in the pit he has made; in the net which they hid in, their own foot is caught...the wicked is snared in the works of their hands. The Lord is known by the judgement He executes." (Psalm 9:15,16). They will be defeated, fallen and no one will escape the long arm of the law. (2 Chronicles 20:24)

  30. Frankie and aiyaz will soon both fall sick and pass on. This is due to all their evil deeds. How do they sleep at night? The answer to that is, they dont! Look at them on tv, they look so messed up and dead...they are now amongst the living dead.

  31. you can wait untill 2014, no later than that.we dont have to this issues out, cause it there in the making,Frank is a strong man to take down so better wait 2014

  32. Australian Land will sink in 2012 from the collapse of earth which is tilting one side as confirmed by scientists and as we see earthquakes daily that is vibrating earth hence becoming lobsided.

    Then Fiji will have bigger land mass as its height will be alleviated to bigger mountains.

    Then Fiji will have no elections as Aussies will come in their navy boats in numbers and take over Fiji and Frank!!!

  33. Who said Bai is a strong man? He thinks he is because of the army. Leone I'll tell you what I can't wait for...to see Bai running through a cassava patch chased by a cane-knife wielding woman.

  37. @ Jake...you are a halfcast......you know nothing about the history of Nukulau.It belongs to the people of Rewa,and it has to be returned.The crown,someday has to pay compensation to the people of Burebasaga and that has to be paid by the taxpayers,including you and your family.I suggest that you stop trying to know everything,that is why god gave you two ears and one mouth,that you talk less and listen more.

  38. Welcome to the world of Black dictators and countries run by colored people. Does any of this look familiar. Zimbabwe, Congo Rwanda, Egypt, Yemen, Somalia, Ivory Coast, Algeria, Uganda, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq etc etc. All countries run by dark skinned people are usually dictatorial, greedy self serving no respect for humanity, oppressive, no freedom of speech and the list goes on and on. I say their is a serious correlation between the color of our skin and the kind of leaders we produce. Hand Fiji over to a Colonial power like Australia perhaps and we will become the Hawaii of the South Pacific in less then 10 years. We have had 40 long years to show that we can and the answer has been a resounding no we can't. Ratu Sukuna new it. We are in denial. Enough Said.
