Peter Foster's escape back to haunt Bainimarama

If the illegal government of Frank Bainimarama is feeling frustrated at Roko Ului Mara's "I got into distress at sea" story, it should cast its mind back to 2007 and Peter Foster.

The Australian investor was well-known on these shores at the time after a dramatic escape to Vanuatu from Fiji, were he had been held by police to face several charges, including fraud.

Foster, who was known locally as "international conman", had been used by Bainimarama in a sting to gather supposed evidence of corruption against the Laisenia Qarase SDL government.

Foster, who'd initially started out in Fiji as a supporter for Tupeni Baba's New Labour Party (he'd shelled thousands of dollars into the campaign), was staying at his home on Denarau Island when he disappeared in January 2007.

He mysteriously turned up in Port Vila, Vanuatu, but was caught and soon after sentenced to six weeks jail for entering the country illegally.

How Foster, who was also known to police in Australia, Britain and Federated States of Micronesia, came to be in Port Vila was kept under wraps by Fiji police at the time.

It was generally believed, though, his regime minders had helped him escape by boat.  

The regime never owned up to it publicly but was forced to later admit it had engaged the services of an Australian conman to expose supposed vote rigging in the election that had brought Qarase to power.

Foster had spilled the beans saying he'd met Bainimarama weeks before and had agreed to take part in a covert operation involving Navi Talai Naisoro, the SDL's Party's electoral strategist, to clear his own name.

Nothing new, of course a conman like Foster would be best buddies with a conman like Vore. Birds of a feather sh*t together. This also shows that the only thing Vore's man want is the $. Give them that and they'll turn against their leader and help a conman run off to Vanuatu.

Those who live by the sword shall die by the sword. The toxic lies that built this regime will be the same weaknesses that cause it to topple. If BainiVore went to all this trouble to fool his own Military Council, surely that same Council can now remove him. So come on men! What the **** are you WAITING for????! DO IT!!! Take out that lying, thieving macawa trash.
God bless Fiji

Navi Naisoro said "These SDL ministers are imbeceles ,,,,,they dont know what they doing,,,,I determine everything as I am SDL Management Board Chair"
No wonder he approved FDB $4m loan to Ballu Khan as FDB Chair without satisfying loan criteria. Sereana Qoro Board member n sacked FHL CEO also backed that loan.
No wonder Frank used these corruption to remove govt.
The SDL gave him grounds for removal.
No wonder all is f..d up in Fiji.
Whatever forster says will be like Roko Lui ,,,just another voice in the merry go around.....
Meanwhile,,,,frank rules on...

Eagle Down said...

This be why Vore doesn't swallow the story, eh? So the regime was lying through its teeth right from the start. It never had the evidence a 'clean up' campaign was needed - it had to find out. Weak (dare I say self-interested) soldiers like Roko Ului Mara and others followed like sheep. Now they squawking like parrots and trying to soar like eagles.

Ratu Mara officer prepares to lift the lid on Fiji regime... He has shown ONE News Pacific Correspondent Barbara Dreaver evidence of secret military intelligence he took with him and is due to reveal soon, further undermining BainiArse.

Ah! Peter Foster, Frank Baby and the Taliban AG are all in it together from day 1. Foster didnt pay up and therefore ended up in Prison. I hear Tappoos are looking at buying a boat too so they can make a quick escape. but they are lamusonis and cant swim. Things are starting to look very exciting in Fiji. Ratu Ului Mara is starting to look like a true leader. all he needs to do is mobilise the troops. everyone can now see the two clowns in charge and they need to be hung up in public and stoned.

Doubting Thomas said...

All Mara revelations so far have come from blogs Let's hope we gang going to learn something new tonight. But guess he's not really talking to us, he's talking about us to get support for himself

Received phone call moments ago that some known anti-regime commentators have had their bank accounts closed by the thugs and terrorist running Fiji today. This is all falling apart so quickly now.
Our talatala had a vision two months ago of a bloodbath inside the President's compound. I hope and pray it does not come true.

Who helped Foster escape on the boat?
Can C4.5 talk to Foster please.

mark manning said...

It's the Shameem sisters pulling Aiyaz strings, Aiyaz pulling Frank's and Frank pulling himself !

I Frank falls, so does the Regime.
Maybe that's why they are keeping him out of Suva, coward.

Once you start pointing a finger - four more will be pointing back.

Rumours are high that there is big split within the military and the police force...

can some one confirm this please? like the events of 2000, a rebellious group is very highly to be working together in bringing down the corrupt pm/ag...

Anonymous said...

anon 4:04 - Driti got nowhere and no one to run too. Maybe he should follow Fosters footsteps and make his way to Vanuatu to spend 6 weeks in Jail...don't trust the tabetabe Melanesians though. Maybe try Samoa, at least he'll hear better jokes from the Samoan PM than from Bainikhaiyum.

Evil begets evil!

When evil happens with a desire to be powerful they will drag and welcome other evil people into their dark world.

Sadly for Mara, he is in the same basket as Peter Foster , so has the extra burden of having to prove that he has regretted his wrong doing and is ready to commit to aiding in the removal of the evil people holding to power and supporting those supporting the regime.

Perhaps, we should leave the President to deal with Bai & Khaiyum and we concentrate on the other people that are benefiting from this illegal regime. eg Joe's Farm is making heaps of money and the silence coming out of Joe's Farm is deafening. Australia is their second home, fly in and out when it suits and their business feeds the Military. Adrian Sofield and his wife, now Fijian citizens has the best of both worlds, best friends of Khaiyum propping up the regime, need I go on? You guys know what I mean? Where are the sunukas? Make this arseholes suffer like we have suffered for the last 5 years.

@Anon 4:42 - Mara won't spill all the beans yet or there won't be any entertainment for the weekend. He should end all his videos with 'to be continued' like the TV Series '24'. Tune in again to C4.5 tomorrow for more....don't try and download the illegal copies and get ahead of the FijiOne...ok. There was mention of two 'packages' that Mara had when he fled Fiji and Dreaver the reporter from NZ has apparently seen one of the files which has intelligence information so there's hopefully still a lot to come from Mara...assuming the second package wasn't his lunch.

Anonymous said...

@Anon.4:44 PM. After all, History does repeat itself... it's happened before --- "big split within the military and the police force" --- and it's happenign again. "Just like the events of 2000". Stay Tuned.

Anon 5:22 Brilliant.

Yes were are the 'sunukas' create some havoc and let the world know that there is civil unrest in Frank and Khaiyum's land of deception.

Sa kua mada na friends with these people that are propping up this regime. Show them you detest them!

Oilei Raivaqu! How can our intelligence be so dumb not able to identify that surfing instructor seen with RU at Kadavu Resort. That was Peter Foster bhaiya..He has come to help RU take the same escape route he took in 2007..But mind you..he's more dangerous now - he's now a SEAL buddy...

Magai said...

It's funny how the military used Peter's confession to justify their coup. As I can remember he was one of Frank's adviser during the coup.As they say birds of same fearthers flock together.

The excuses keep changing, still majority won't buy it hehe..

Uluis Episode 2 will contain infor we already know ie planners of the coup etc etc blah blah blah
But in the meantime the President just came back from a taralala in Rotuma, Voreqe from Kadavu where he received traditional apologies n soldiers and police continue to feed their families well satisfied with their pay.
No ones gonna fire a shot you fools!

Driti, Bula Boci,
Better you get picked up at Naselai Point just past Queba. At the moment if regime fails, you all going to jail.

So if you run away, even NZ will give you refuge and send you to Iraq.

NEWS FLASH !!!!

Peter Foster is to announce later today that he will be assuming role of PM. A deal between them has been worked out in which the PM has agreed to turn over control of the country in return for a fabulous real estate deal. Asked why the PM would trade an entire country for a bit of beachfront, it is said that he responded, "Why because I want to bury treas - oops! No, I mean, I have heard that sandcastles are the lastest craze in real estate development and I have already lined up investors who have indicated they're interested. Foster was interviewed and asked how in the world he was able to put such a slick deal together. His response was that it was almost too easy. The guy just sat there not saying anything at all. He had a dumb look on his face. Foster went on to comment on how much the PM has changed in appearance since they last met. He approves of the long sideburns and pufted out hair. Says it gives the PM a tender look.

THE extraction of Ratu Tevita Mara from within Fiji waters is a game-changer just like the New York twin towers attack of 9/11 was. I am also from Lakeba the same island as Ratu Mara and also have relatives in Hoi, Nuku'alofa who regularly come to visit in Fiji. What I would like to impress upon your readers is that despite the low key treatment this episode has attracted in the general media, the general Fijian psyche would be severely affected. We did not expect this from our Tongan brothers.

Rescue protocol would have demanded you, at least, inform the Fijian authorities of the rescue. Tonga's attempt to downplay the severity of this saga by couching it as a simple sea rescue is not the Pacific way. We do not lie to each other. That is the palangi way of trying lie their way out of situations.

I am not sure what the Tongan authorities were trying to prove, but you sure have displayed a behaviour well outside the norms of international diplomacy and a great part of the goodwill built up over the years between our two countries may just have been squandered on this ill-though out expedition. I do hope in Tonga's calculations this illegal extraction was worth it.

Your Lord Tu'ivakano took a swipe against the Fijian judiciary. Is this the same judiciary he expects to protect Tongan nationals in Fiji who may now have to face the wrath of Fijians insulted by such cowardly actions? If your navy is patting itself on the back at such audacity in breaching Fiji's waters, then they should realise that breaching territorial waters is nothing, even the refugees from Afghanistan breach Australia's waters at times, but what they have done will have implications well into the future between our two countries.

Yours sincerely,

Mareko Vuli.

We just need to plan a concerted attack on the www.fiji.gov.fj web site. Lets show the Condom Baini that we have the power to bring his regime down from cyberspace. This will also show the people that by attacking the site together and making it meltdown that there is large number of people not happy with him.

Can C4.5 publish a date and I am sure we have enough experts here to help guide the best way to plan this attck.

Lets start to hurt him. Its just collective all of us to start visting his website and making request simultaneously. or is there another method? there is no crime in visiting the site so no one will be in trouble. But we all need to visit it same time and start clicking on menu same time.

Condom Baini get ready for our attack.

well it does seem like tongan government haven't thought this one thru. Condom Baini can cause problems for tongan residents in Fiji if they end up in court. Lets hope not royal family members are in Fiji still. Condom Baini will for sure drum up some silly/naughty charges to put you in gail.
