Moles: Mara to face a second charge and Fiji police woefully equipped to deal with riot situation

HUDDLES: Naivalurua and Kean.
Insiders say the regime hasn't finished with Roko Ului Mara yet: they say the former 3FIR commander is to be further charged, this time over spending without following tender procedures and giving some five million dollars of business to Crown imports in 2010.


Sources also say exposure by Coupfourpointfive of the plan to remand Mara and Pita Driti in custody while they wait their trial has forced police commander Ioane Naivalurua to back off, for the time being, but they say it's preordained the pair will go to jail.

Both Mara and Driti were last week charged with sedition, with Driti incurring the extra charge of inciting mutiny against Frank Bainimarama.


Sources say, though, that the army, navy and the police are still poised for any any trouble and have gone into amber alert as the regime faces its biggest hurdle since the 2006 coup.

But insiders have also revealed the 700-strong Fiji Police is embarrassingly less than prepared for a challenge from civilians, let alone rebel troops. They say the force is woefully ill-equipped and lacks basic resources like spare uniforms, handcuffs with officers outrageously using expired pepper spray.


The pepper sprays are said to have expired in 2009 yet policing crews are still carrying them around and are expected to use them. Sources say the sprays could prove very dangerous if turned on civilians, eg in a riot situation or even when trying to break up a fight as it can cause permanent blindness.
Informers also say almost 90% of police officer are without any handcuffs or protective gear when they head out to patrol the streets. According to one officer: "The standard equipments of the Fiji Police are either not in stock, expired or not being purchased because there is no money."

The source says it's been a general practice of police officers who don't have any equipment NOT to respond to crimes in progress.
A rumor has, meanwhile, surfaced that Bainimarama's brother-in-law, Francis Kean, could be the next police commissioner, with Bainimarama sidelining Naivalurua.  

Brigadier General Mohammed Aziz, who Coupfourpointfive revealed yesterday as betraying Mara and Driti and turning state witness despite allegedly being involved in discussions to topple Bainimarama, is being talked off again in connection with an overseas post.

  3. The time is now and ripe to follow the footsteps of brave citizens in Lybia, Syria, Egypt, Yemen and others who have rebelled against their dictators and have caused mayhem in the country...for regime changes, establishment of democracies, human rights and dignity.

    Fiji military and Police are much smaller than our population, ill equipped and they will never contain a general popular uprising.

    Stones, caneknives, forks, sticks, spears, clubs, fires, petrol bombs exploding same day in Suva, Lautoka, Nadi, Labasa, Nausori, Korovou, Vatukoula, Ba and all over Fiji can take out the military in 2-3 days...no problem.

    We can organise a simultaneous revolt at home in Sigatoka

  4. 3000 soldiers + 2000 Policemen verses 600,000 civilians on the streets, parks, veikarasi,beaches and homes is about to take place very soon. Guns verses matchsticks. How about that Bainimarama, Aziz, Kaiyum and others? Stay away from Driti, Roko Ului, Ratu Ganilau or you will get the Taukei Movement's onslaught at its worse. One match stick will take you down permanently and if you still alive then imprisonment for life in Naboro Prison will save you. For you Driti and Roko Ului please open your mouth widest in Court of Justice (If it does happens)and let the whole world know the truth about the planning and plotting the Coup headed by Bainimarama and now gone wrong. To those of you giving money to Bainimarama and Aiyas and Co , do not forget we know you and we have the list of names too,so, please tell the truth when the time comes because the bankers will certainly open up to safeguard their reputaion and systems. To you our brothers in both forces make your move in good time and leave those small numbers in question with Bainimarama to defend themselves with one matchstick. Because of us, the 6000,000 civilians, Governments across the world,Financiers and creditable Investors are standing behind us and not coming forward to help you Bainimarama and Aiyaz for over the last 5 years of your leadership. You started very well Bainimarama but you deliberately change step at the saluting base and march in China and Islamic style. No wonder you worth $700,000 dollars salary for changing steps.

  5. We just do not believe the few extreme elements will succeed in their evil zest to propagate any form of civil disobedience or mutiny with the ranks.

    Though the volatility and tension is real, we are banking on the spirit of goodwill… overwhelming goodwill and wisdom to herald in stability. Of course, in times like this, Fijians are renowned to dig deeper into their reservoir of goodness, for the common good; a virtue us as communal habitants can be proud of. No egoism.We can do it again, even if it;ll be the last in this kinda situations.

    Tomorrow is another new day, and we hope brings new resolve , probably, with due respect, the absent President , Chiefs, Church & Religious Leaders, Corporate players, overseas Fijian Leaders seriously , intentionally talk to the Leaders of the Aiyaz/Bainimarama Government.

    Remember the words of Bahama’s Dr. Mike Munro (??) after his 2 hours meeting with Prime Minister Rear Admiral Frank Bainimarama in September 2010. He said, “You cannot change someone you avoid”
    SO LET’S STOP AVOIDING MY TAUVU MR. BAINIMARA…TALK TO HIM… HE IS ONLY A RUGBY LOVING FIJIAN GRANDDAD, FOR ALL WE KNOW…GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME!!...HE DOES NOT BITE!! OR ELSE YOURS TRULY,COMMONER LIKE ME WILL DO IT FOR YOU…THEN,THAT WILL BE AN INSULT TO THE SOME ABSENT VANUA,CHURCH AND CORPORATE GURUS!!

    We will reach safely to the otherside..do'nt you worry about that!!

    If he was willing to sit and 'talanoa' with the rest of the crowd, Fiji won't be in deep Shit as it is. 2014 will come and go, election or no election... FIJI is in a pig pan, and it will take generations to bring it out of the bai ni vore!

  8. @Semi Meo. You rugby-loving Fijian grandad supervised the round-up and torture of Fijian women and men. Supervised the murder of Rabaka and CRW soldiers and subsequent release of those responsible. Supervised the release of his murderer brother in law Mr Kean. And then indulging in Nepotism for his brother, son, daughter etc.
    So Semi , Don't Fuck with us .

  10. Replacing Naivalurua with Kean will be a slap in the face to all right thinking military people but serves them right, levu na tabetabe, FB is shameless, thick skin with nepotism. Soon, you will see his son Meli promoted to Brigadier General and take over the army, Kim Jong II did it N.Korea, so it is possible. Bloggers just watch, Qiliho and team will follow suit to Ului/Driti.

    Semi Meo - Try use your thick head and see how Arab country Dictators discredited their protestors said they are only a few, lack of numbers and support. For e.g. Egypt, Mumbark's party had won elections all the time by 70+%. Now the change of Constitution was put to vote after he was overthrown. The voter's turnout was never like before and the results were an overwhelming 76% Yes for Change. You are branding us as few, the same thing Bashar is doing Syria, Gaddaffi is doing in Lybia, and GBagbo did in Ivory Coast. They rig votes, abuse the government system, they are corrupted. See, it is like this; you touch and count your balls.......... how many are there........... Only you who knows.......... there are two!!!!

  11. Ului Mara's $5 million deal with Crown Imports confirms corruption is rife in the top brass of the military. It appears these kind of dealings are OK and kept secret by the command as long as those concerned keep on side. They are permitted to individually do dealings and make money as much as they like as long as they toe the lineand remain loyal to the boss. Once you fall out you are exposed and pursued with investigation. God help Fiji..

  14. Semi Meo, when dust settle down in Fiji we will come for you in Brisbane to shake your hands with broken jaws and bones. Those ex-servicemen including the late Meo senior, your father, from Saqani, gave their life in defending our country, land, resources and us not to be left landless, poor and needy landowners. The late Meo senior was also the defender of Christ Jesus and not a tabetabe to Voreqe like you who looking to be elected in 2014 general election as Minister. I know you tried once while you were with us and failed. Liumuri.

    Well told you the end game is near. Question is who will lead post FB govt? Indians wont support any nationalistic govt. What we need is a broad based coalition.
    Btw have you heard? Ficac filed for recusal of Marshall J in the Mau Motibhai case. Recusal filed on instructions of Aiyaz.
    Judiciary is well and truly fuckd and controlled by Shameem.
    Time for action.

  16. The corrupt Fiji Military must be removed from Fiji once and for all for bringing pain and suffering to the people of Fiji.

    Fiji Rugby also does not not need this Mataivalu ni Solisona and the players mentioned by Tikoitiga are nowhere near the CLASS of our overseas players and should not make the team - So what travel ban you are talking about you dickhead.

    PERIOD - FIJI DOES NOT NEED THIS MATAIVALU NI SOLISONA, BOCI , KAISIBOKOLA, CICILEVU GROUP OF LOSERS.

  18. Remember the prophecy of the Indian Holy Man who came to Fiji after the 2000 Coup.

    His prediction was that there will be bloodshed and 20,000 people will be killed before Fiji prospers.

    I think this 20,000 is the Grand Total of the Fiji Military and their supporters.

    I can see the shit dripping out of the cici of the Mataivalu ni Solisona already when they read this.

    Every Dog has its day and the people of Fiji will have their day when we destroy this corrupt Military for ever.

  19. mara's $5million deal with crown imports only goes to confirm that corruption is rife in the army's top brass and is a well kept secret. One is free to make as money as he can as long as he keeps on side. Once one falls out with the boss he is exposed and pursued with investigation..what a shame. So FICAC is just a smokescreen to show we have clean people governing us.

    I am not sure what you on about, Bainimarama does not want engagement if it is not on his own terms, which is: you sit and listen, do not question or raise your any views contrary to his position.You are preaching the impossible.

    If you did not know it by now your Tauvu is not goin to give up power unless the people of Viti remove him. So for those of us living in Viti, this may be the only alternative, while you enjoy life in Aussie, the economy is crumbling around us.

  24. I am appalled at the comments from this forum on Bainimarama and AG are steering this country forward But the way that they are going are a bit Cloudy esp hiring Members of their immediate families in paramount positions. But then again that AIN'T NO DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT, The only change that I applaud is the major developments in the rural areas whereby I travel from. I am a resident in the Village of Nukutubu Rewa and we finally have a road direct to the Village. AT LAST from ALL PREVIOUS GOVERNMENTS NOTHING WAS DONE and the WATER has finally STOPPED BEING a PROBLEM So THANK YOU GOVERNMENT Who ever it is OUR CRY FOR OVER 40 YEARS HAVE BEEN HEARD

  25. Do you notice how fully filled the body frames (i.e. fat) of military men are in above fotos??..they suggest luxurious, padded well off living standard. They are living off the fat of hard working ordinary Fiji citizens. These guys are ripping off the coffers of the poor, stealing, de-frauding the country, while most in Fiji are starving.

    They took over leadership to rid Fiji of corruption and bring justice...but are turning out to be more corrupt and are parasitic on the poor.

  27. Most of the current powerful and wealthy nations went through earth wrenching bloddy upheavals to win, appreciate, value and enjoy prosperity and peace.

    France, most other European countries, England, USA Japan....you name the country they had gone through struggles Fiji had never dreamt about. This seems to be a coomon path to stability and democracy.

    It is sad, but probably one needs to go through babtism of bloodshed, wars to find common popular and firm ground for agreement on suitable democratic systems.

    Even China and Russia have gone through unbilievable turmoils and wars and they are still not perfect but evolving towards full democratic systems. They are now prosperous and enjoying increasingly democratic systems

    We may just need to go through the same experience of cleansing, conflicts, wars, revolution to find solid common ground on which to build a stable, sustainable democracy.

    Maybe the time is NOW for us to rise up, burn down Suva, Lautoka, Labasa, Ba, Nauori, QEB Nabua, annihilate the army and navy, then rebuild from the ashes. Decimate and erase the current dictatorship and personnel.

    Sounds brutal, wasteful, but going by global history this seems to be a common path many had followed and found workable . Let us start NOW. What say you

  32. Ului won't be opening his mouth on the stands about the coup since he was one of the Ratu's who were behind the coup from the start. He would only be incriminating himself. Time to pay the piper for him and Driti. Why did they have to do such a half-assed job of trying to coup Baiyarse anyway? You'd think after years of being in the military they'd know how to go about it....thats what happens when you have idiots as soldiers. At least the CRW managed to take over the camp with just a few men...you two idiots have whole regiments behind you...or is it you found out they were not behind you after all...so much for being a 'commanding officer'!!

  37. @Anon 11.07

    Yeah thats basically the ploy, rural development to hide the abuse of government revenue, winning the rural populace in the process. There is more to it than a road to your village. The government is merely living on borrowed money and our FNPF contribution otherwise the economy is dead...there is no growth.

    No different from previous government who were voted in, but this one came in by force with the promise that it will be different; to clean up coruption, nepotism et al. But alas it is no different, and even worse in terms of coruption, nepotism and abuse of power.

  41. I don't know where people are getting their concerns from especially about this Govt. I see that the rural people are getting Jobs and they are happy that the Govt has come back to them. WHY DO THE URBAN have to HAVE EVRYTHING WHY NOT US IN THE RURAL. So Yes IF I AM PRO GOVT Bcause US IN THE RURAL ARE GETTING JOBS FOR OUR HARD WORK AND YES... But in any GOVT we have tried hard to persuade them to come to us BUT NO they would ONLY go to the CHIEFLY VILLAGES in the PROVINCES NOT the Isolated villages. SO U UNEMPLOYED IN THE URBAN, DO COME BACK TO THE RURAL TO TIL THE LAND. We NEED YOUR HELP AS WELL.

  42. @Mark Manning. I remember 2 yrs ago a man stood with his protest placard at Kings Rd, Nabua. He lasted for about an hour and the green goons threw him in the back of the truck and drove up to Delainabua and made him do a few exercises.
    He was told never to protest again or he will end up like Rabaka.
    No one has protested since.

    I agree with Rusila, that Delainabua should be burnt to the ground.

  43. Pat idiot! do you pay any taxes? those rural developments are paid for with loans from China - loans that working people will have to repay, not you or this idiot Frank. Rural development will come in time, but at the moment its all to buy support for Frank and hide his own corruption and incompetence as the economic pie gets smaller and smaller with less jobs because the idiot drives investors away with his idiot decrees and our top performers sugar and tourism declining. High numbers of visitos don't mean more money - its just the cheap crowd enjoying the deep flight and hotel discounts idiot!

  52. @anon 3.29, yes this is interesting prediction that you highlighted for us.

    You say the 20,000 is total of Fiji military and its supporters will be killed. I like the choise of your words as you referred to RFMF and not at "Bainimarama", given that you are also referring to year 2000 given Fiji prospers was not present at the time.

    So who would be the real supporters of RFMF given that the issues arise out of 2000'partially' failed coup and lack of prosperity Fiji prior to that?

    Is this 2006 a count down to the challenge placed on RFMF leader who had said he was not going anywhere after SDL attempted to get him a commonwealth posting, stating he has unfinished business to attend to?
