Bloggers 'name' high ranking chief being held in Tonga

Roko Ului Mara has been named by bloggers sending comments to Coupfourpointfive as the high ranking chief picked up by the Tongan Navy in their waters.


Ului was last week charged with sedition and was according to sources facing a second charge for misuse of funds.


The high ranking official, who has been accommodated in the Royal Place, is believed to have ended up in Tongan waters after drifting from Ono-i-Lau.

Coupfourpointfive has been told the Fiji chief is being looked after by the Lord Chamberlain himself at the Royal Palace in Nukualofa.


Officials clearly know the name of the man who has been dubbed the 'Fiji Castaway' but are keeping it secret. A Tongan source told Coupfourpointfive the story was covered on TV last night but the man's name was not released.


Bloggers are saying Ului, who was  shafted by Frank Bainimarama and cohorts like Brigadier General Mohammed Aziz, has taken refuge in Tonga and is seeking the protection of King George.

We will post more information as we get it. Below is the original statement from the Tongan Ministry of Information: 


13 May, 2011. While on routine patrol His Majesty's Patrol Boat SAVEA was attracted to a distress signal south of Ono-i-lau and to which it immediately responded and the Navy reports that there was, thankfully, no loss of life. 
The rescued passenger has been brought to Nuku'alofa where arrangements have been made for his accommodation by the Royal Household Office in deference to his rank. The King, who is travelling in Central Europe, has been fully informed of events by the Lord Keeper of the Privy Seal. (Lord Privy Seal).

  1. MEDIA RELEASE

    Regime Change Should Happen in Fiji soon:
    A Statement by Lieutenant Colonel Tevita Uluilakeba Mara

    Friends and contacts in the Army as well as the Police warned me of a plan hatched by Khaiyum to utilise the provisions of the Public Emergency Act and Crimes Decree 2010 in order to incarcerate Pita Driti and I for at least a year on trumped up charges of sedition and attempted mutiny without the opportunity to defend ourselves in open court. Considering the state of corruption of the judicial system and the extent to which it is controlled entirely by the political frivolities of the Attorney General, I was obliged to take these warnings seriously.

    For inexplicable reasons, Commodore Bainimarama, weakened by ill health, morally and intellectually bankrupt, is no more than Aiyaz Khayum's hand puppet. The advice which we, as senior officers had offered the Commander in an attempt to soften the regime's approach to public dissent were seen by Khayum as a direct threat to his person and his megalomania is inspired entirely by the self importance of a lonely and inadequate man. Endowed with no leadership qualities and incapable of understanding the simplest principles of decency and respect even in a society that is grounded on such virtues, he is the sole architect of the cruelties which have sadly become common in our daily life.

    When I was rescued by the Tongan Navy I asked to be brought to Nuku'alofa where under the sure protection of King George's Government I shall be able to tell the truth, without fear of retribution, about the tragic oppression which stifles my beloved land. When this hateful dictatorship has been eradicated all of us who once served it shall answer to the Fijian people for the part we played and I will gladly submit to their verdict.

    Bio-data
    of Ratu Tevita Kapaiwai Lutunauga Uluilakeba Mara

    Ratu Tevita Kapaiwai Lutunauga Uluilakeba Mara is a Fijian career soldier, with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel as of early 2006. On 3rd Feb, 2001 he was named Army Chief of Staff succeeding Colonel Meli Saubulinayau, a close relative of his. This position is the fourth highest in the Fijian Military, behind that of the Military Commander, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, Deputy Commander and Chief of Staff RFMF Brigadier General Mohamed Aziz and the Land Force Commander Brigadier General Pita Driti. Mara held the position for several months, before he was appointed Commanding Officer of the Third Infantry Regiment, a key position in the Fiji Army as he controls the infantry division.

    Background

    In December 2006 The Republic of Fiji Military Forces took control of Fiji in bloodless coup. The army had a strict plan which was te remove corruption and corrupt politicians and to return to barracks within a year. Lieutenant Colonel Tevita Uluilakeba Mara was in charge of the 3 FIR on that day and for the next 4 years.

    He witnessed from the inside how power has corrupted the key players in the regime and how now they have forgotten their original objectives as they desperately cling to power. Colonel Mara has left Fiji so that he can speak freely about the need to for regime change in his beloved Fiji.

  2. Very Sad indeed.
    I pray to God that He would destroy the Fiji Miltary Forces and decimate it completely.
    I pray that Delainabua would be razed to the ground and be turned into a graveyard. A place only for ghosts to roam. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

  6. Takiveikata does not need to run. His people are loyal to him but he does not want them to intervene in the court's decision against him. He has learnt a lot from 2000. He is a hero to his people.

  9. Mara is the messenger, Takiveikata the martyr. This is the beginning of the end for this evil regime.

    It is time for everyone to stand up for what you believe is right, or be left to face judgment which will surely come soon.

  18. Some people who talk shit against the looser officers of RFMF are only insiting strong loyality from soldiers currently serving under Frank - sorry my mistake under AG Aiaz!

    Tell me what was your position when Agri Scam took over genuine election results - did you resign?

    Did you resign when High Court ruled that 2001 election was compromised, hence 2006 election also remaied invalid....?

    If you were a soldier in 1987 and 2006, did you resign when coup took place?

    At least in 1987 Rabuka gave an opportunity to his soldiers to resign and that the military leadership does understand their position if they do resign; for not supporting his command and the path RFMF was taking since he succeeded with mutiny.

    Therefore, all soldiers under the leadership of Frank, are also human beings, who just like some of you who chose to hang in there to earn your own bread and butter, are same for those soldiers who are doing what they can under the circumstances.

    For soldiers if they do not follow orders, they can be taken to task the brutal military way. They only doing what they are trained to do since 1987 i.e. to brutalise their own people if they are on the opposition side.

    So look in the mirror and understand their position. Some of you are no saint calling the cattle black.

    Low and order is not only when you lose out of favour but when you are in control are able to follow them. Or will brinf about new group of radicals - unles you are already the ones who are the 1987and 2000 beneficiaries.

    Give Ratu Ului and Driti the courage to come forward... this will help put together the steps to weaken the regime.

    If you want them behind bars, then agree to have can of worms of your time be opened also for any unconstitutional mischieves. Put yourselves in the same basket for justice.

    Supporting these two soldiers all the way will see faster results to ridding Telaban Aiaz and Vore.

    Opposing these two will definately place stronger bond to the regime to lead beyond 2014.

    Analyse politics rather then talk rubbish so that a plan is in place within the regime to return to the barracks. Otherwise leave it to the attitude of "fight me if you can" when I am the one who controls the bullets and its handlers!!

    And do you think the coup plotters / supportes of 1987 and 2000 who are now puppets of this regime likes of our foreign minister and education minister will help draw up a decree for returning RFMF back to the barracks?

    Like I said before mentality has not changed - only the players have changed.....

    Regime supporters have become opposition while their own opposition is sitting on the sideline sitting quitely just like others waiting for self destruction and the final show down, maybe to see the real constitutional democracy to return once there is enough opposition from within... not to follow blindly politicians who use them for personal gains... just as Driti's greed for money that saw him promoted to Brigadier was more important then to get in there to finish off telaban.

    So bottom line in Fiji is money. money and money...no real ethics to follow through when you are in position to make the difference.

    Like the coconut wireless has said Frank's advice to the pair was "if you want to do something, just go and do it, not just talk about it".
