Roko Ului Mara names the Fiji soldiers brutalizing citizens


The soldiers guilty of human rights abuses have been singled out by Roko Ului Mara.

In these latest videos in the Fijian language, the former commander of the third infantry warns Penioni Naliva, Aseri Rokoura and Rabuka, to stop making people suffer, saying the time will come for them to answer to the people.

Naliva (pictured left with Bainimarama), Rokoura (pictured closest to Banimarama in the picture on the right) and 'Rabuka' (Savenaca Siwatibau) were all named recently by Coupfourpointfive as leading henchmen for Frank Bainimarama and the QEB Goons, who were beating and terrorising citizens.

In these videos, Roko Ului confirms our list and also tells two other senior soldiers, land force commander Mosese Tikoitonga (right) and Lieutenant Colonel Jone Kalouniwai, to wake up to the truth. He tells them to put  their education to good use and to open their eyes and stop being blind. He says they know very well what has been happening and that it's wrong.


Asked by media if he himself illegally detained civilians during the 2006 coup, Mara replied: "not directly .... but under directions." He said he "totally regretted it."

Got an idea, since some of us in Fiji do not have internet access, why don't those of us who do, download these videos, save them on our phones and bluetooth them around.....everybody in Fiji has a mobile phone.....by the way you can download any youtube video on this site:

It is a sad for all of us that had so much respect for the late Ratu KKT Mara, Fiji's first PM and who spent all his life for our beloved Fiji to hear his youngest son speak about the dictatorship that has plaqued Fiji since after the 2006 coup. It is common knowledge that his father masterminded the Rabuka coup but I now strongly, Fiji's coup days are now over once Bainimarama and Khaiyum are removed from power.

Thank you Roko Ului, please be honest with yourself, think of your late Ratu and Nau, remind those of us that love Fiji with a passion of the legacy they left for all us. Do the right thing by all of us and do it with honesty and integrity.

Thank you Ratu Te, I count you to be a real soldier and a real man. You confess it and you will face it like a man as you've said it.
So now we hear from the horse's mouth who are the real cowards are & culprits up at the camp who are torturing innocent people esp. the i taukei's. spill it all out Ratu Te, its very disappointing to hear. And thats what the people of Fiji to know. How disgraceful a dictator can rule as all this happening known very well to him. you really put your self in a situation where the reality will show up. So whatever that goes up is now coming down.
You are a brave man!! You showing your own chiefly status that you love the people and the vanua. Unlike the dictator whom I heard if Im correct that he is just a kai wai and has no quality of leadership in his village.
Keep it up, you have to be saluted.

What is your point? There is something not right with you. Is it because you are fearing that the time is drawing closer to terminate Bainimarama's rule. You were always one of those bloggers that we couldn't figure out which side you were really on.

I think the time has come, either you are with Bainimarama, if so piss off or for a democratic Fiji.

OK we all know Roko Ului's involvement in the 2006, but he is now ready to fight for democratic Fiji and needs everyone's support.

Thank you Ratu Ului for speaking the truth and for speaking from the heart. I'm just sad that it took so long for you to realise what time of madman and a user of people Bainimarama is. Its also very disappointing to see that the current crop of soldiers still at camp are carrying on with their arbitrary detainment methods. They obviously have not learnt anything nor are they prepared to change their ways. I hope some of them will end up in jail after this sorry era in Fiji's history is behind us and their actions are no better than animals who deserve to be locked away. Please keep up the good work of exposing all that has gone on behind the scenes especially the type of egomaniac Bainimarama is. We will ensure that these messages get down to the grassroot people so they can see exactly what kind of maniac is pulling the wool over their eyes.

In the meantime will the majority of our fellowmen even KNOW what is coming down? And in the end, will have any thing really changed? Will we have traded one dictator for another? Are we even capable of creating democracy at this early stage of our political life?

There you go guys. Downloading is one best way of getting the message across to those in the rural areas....
Thanks Roko Ului. It sounds more interesting now. If I was Kalouniwai and Tikoitoga I will resign right now while my reputation is still intact as a show of support for the return of Democracy to Fiji.
But am not surprised to see the ppl of Muani in Kadavu, Tikoitoga's village, presenting a kamunaga for their apology to Voreqe to show rheir support. They did this after Tikoitoga was promoted to one of the top Military position. They said that they didn't support the Regime after the '06 coup. However the vanua of Kadavu has shown support during one of the Provicial council meeting. Sa levu mataboko and tabe2 re.
Thanks Roko Ului. God Bless Fiji!!!

Start Name & Shame List

http://rawfijinews.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/ajith-kodagoda-a-sri-lankan-coup-supporter/

Extract from ol fiji live - message is still current.

Ajith Kodagoda is Chief Financial Officer for a Fiji Patel empire, the CJ Patel Co Ltd distributorship company based in Veisari, Lami.

Ajith is one of tyrant Frank Bainimarama’s approved FNPF new board member together with Foster’s Marketing Manager, Joe Rodan. Ajist is now FNPF Chairman.

So who exactly is Ajith Kodagoda and which hole did he creep out from?

Our sources reveal that Ajith Kodagoda is a full blown regime supporter.

He is Sri Lanka’s honorary consular in Fiji whose address is stated as No. 7, Adi Lady Davila Road, Domain. He was very instrumental in organising the Sri Lankan High Commissioner’s trip to Fiji in late April 2009 to present his credential to Iloilo, the guy who in April 15th, claimed to have abrogated Fiji’s 1997 constitution.

Sri Lankan was the first country to give recognition to Fiji’s new illegal order, thanks in part to Ajith Kodagoda’s wheeling and dealing with Frank & Co.

Ajith is the main guy controlling the CJ Patel business and has been doing so for many years now.

It is said that Ajith is the backbone of the CJ Patel Fiji operations while the heir to the CJ Patel empire, Sandeep Patel, the only son of Mr Patel Senior, lives full time in Sydney, Australia.

Ajith Kodagoda also controls CJ Patel’s majority interest in Fiji Sun, Fiji’s other newspaper that has become the junta’s propaganda machine after its pro-democracy publisher Russell was forcefully removed by the junta followed by the sudden resignation of its editor, Samisoni Kakaivalu.

Ajith is a Sri Lankan national brought in by CJ Patel many years ago to manage their kitty.

Those who have worked for him say Ajith is a cunning fox who will use all the game in the book to delay payments, to find excuses not to pay their creditors, often quoting frequent fradulent activities by his staff members with their photos plastered in Fiji’s dailies to punctuate his concerns of how thieving is affecting their business, hence their late payment requests to the creditors etc.

Ajith’s appointment to the FNPF board does not surprise those who know him well.

They say Ajith Kodagoda is happy to serve tyrant Frank Bainimarama for he is one of the first to benefit from the junta’s dual citizenship allowing him to hold a Sri Lankan and a Fijian passport giving him the leeway to meddle around with FNPF members shrinking fund.

Perhaps it is time to call up a CRW’s testimony in court to see where Ajith Kodagoda and his CJ Patel company fit in the whole scheme of things.

Military Council, Have some balls. Frank said it was military council who was incharge and ones who appointed interim govt.

So YOU are in control of our destiny and NOT Frank.

SO for once you dictate rather than be dictated to and immediately reinstate Driti & Ului. Because their sacking is a farce. Fear of the two is no reason for their sacking and purported charges against them. Your real comrades.

Just as you ignored Iloilo's sacking of Frank, this is time to ignore instructions from Frank.....

Rt Ului, thank you for sharing with us all those info and maybe a signed Affidavit with the Tongan Lord Privy Councillor as your witness will hammer that nail on the coffin boxes for Tu Bai & Tu Khaiy. Remember your promise Rt Ului that the people of Fiji will also await the day that you will be called up to explain why you gave the orders to torture and harass Democratic Supporters who did a few laps around the QEB grounds immediately after 2006 and into 2007. (I know because I was one of them sprinters).

The Baseline is, the Army was never mean't to come out of the barracks in the 1st place and a new democratic Government must ensure that the Army is abolished once and for all.

Rt Ului, your much awaited statements on this site from Fijians all over must not be a stepping stone for you to get any recompense in a situation when democracy has returned to Fiji - REMEMBER THAT!! WE JUST WANT YOU TO TELL THE TRUTH SO THAT THE PEOPLE OF FIJI CAN REALLY SEE HOW CHILDISH, IRRESPONSIBLE AND SELF SERVING YOU ALL HAVE BEEN REALLY ARE THESE PAST YEARS!!

Can't believe how certain people so easily trying to make you a hero when u are a self centred womanising individual.

Commentaries by Semi Meo.

Firstly, I forgive those bloggers who’ve willfully misconstrued the letter and spirit of my humble commentaries in this esteemed blog site. Of course, I have no control over your respective thought processes or the kinda spirit that overwhelms your pen and your heart.

May I for the one millionth times state that I stand by ALL…ALL my commentaries in the Media since December 2006. All written under my real name, the late Meo Snr bestowed on this twin partner. I am, and will forever be proud of my name, and will never, never ever use a pseudonym to voice my opinion; what EVER the price I may pay.

In simple English, again I say as I have written since late December 2006 that I, like many of you, personally abhor all Coups. As I believed then and now, Coups are unbiblical acts of sedition. The first ever Coup by the rotten manipulator and prideful Lucifer himself against the sovereignty of God Almighty. Indeed, illegal and immoral in every sense of the word. What else do I have to say or prove to all of you my fellowmen/women??

For late comers in the cyber sphere, please search for my post like “Bainimarama may be fighting against God” during the eve of the cancelled Methodist Church Conference, and many other against the Aiyaz/ Bainimarama Government. In another article, my condolence and shock for brutal murder of young Rabaka and I joined many in calling for the thugs in the Police and Military to be arrested, thrown in prison for the rest of their natural life!! These were commentaries I made BEFORE my various trips to Fiji since December 2006.
Conversely however, like many of you, ardently desire for return to democratic rule. But, please not as some extremists have insinuated forms of violet take over. Please NO..Please…kerekere bibi vakaturaga… as only our own relatives back home may pay the ultimate price. My reasons? best kept for another day in the cyber world.

Why do I coin “Aiyuz/Bainimarama Government”, and not Bainimarama Government? All I could say is, I have reached that conclusion from information gathered during my many trips to Fiji since 2006 and my personal discussions with incumbent Cabinet Ministers, Senior Military Officers, Permanent Secretaries and Foreign Missions.

Though still a Fiji Citizen, I cannot contest the 2014 elections. Though, like many of you, we wish to God we can have one in 2014. It was never my desire, though I floated my name in the campaign and election mix just to create lively discussion in this esteemed column.

CANNOT CONTEST??..Never will..as I made a solemn vow in Suva on the 15th day of October 2010 that I WILL NEVER EVER SET FOOT ON FIJI SOIL AGAIN,NEVER!! I reserve my reasons made in front of 2 local Fiji Lawyers, an Australian Lawyer and oversea Business associates at the breakfast table at Radisson Hotel in bay of Islands. The tranquility of that spot may have added to the emotion of that declaration.

But, Fiji is the country of my forefathers and may be my descendents if they choose. Hence, my continued interest and repeated commentaries. Every week my heart cries out for families’ and individuals seeking protection visa from Australia. I have the rare privilege to be contracted by the Refugee Tribunal to interpret for them. Obviously, I am not at liberty to discuss case, names or particulars of any case.

I could deduce from a few anonymous posts and accusations were made by my friends who know me and my family. I owe them a mighty big hug and definitely in my prayers for my God to abundantly bless them MORE abundantly than He blesses me and my family!!

My bold commentaries, however continues.

http://www.matangitonga.to/article/letterscomments/other/201Editor,

Sydney, Australia:

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,

Its funny how people re-act to the current situation; some condemn while others praise Roko Ului. Some call for uprising and stronger measures from the international communities while others prefer the soft appraoch (whatever that means); some want instant action while some prefer to leave it in God's hand.

My observation of the current situation is simple. Voreqe is not going to give up power for any reason; because he came in by force and he will have to be removed by force. Power corrupts and Voreqe is the ultimate example in this part of the world.

Roko Ului is providing the platform for us, the people of Fiji to wrest back cobntrol of our own destiny from this tin pot dictator. Certainly support of Voreqe's inner circle is crumbling from backstabbing and power struggle.

Now lets face it and be realistic. God will not help those who don't help themselves. Prayer comes with action and freedom/democracy in Fiji has got to be earned this time. We need to struggle, to fight for it, and if there be violence or bloodshed, so be it. Its better to suffer now and leave a better Fiji for our future generation; or do we want to go along as whimps with this idiot dictator and leave an economicaly devastated Fiji for our children.

There must be someone in Fiji who can lead or start the struggle and I am hoping that someone can be spurred into action soon. Lets take the bull by the horns and sacrifice a little pain for the future our country.

Great explanation but you are forgetting that Fiji under Frank & Khaiyum have no rule of law. It is rule of law on the run to suit themselves.

If the Tongans are oppressed in Fiji, or anyone for that matter, by the two scrupulous thugs, Fiji's corrupt justice system as well as their human rights are exposed to the world. This, in turn may wake up the international communities and intervene that democratic elections is needed asap.

However, for the time being we must take anything that will expose what is happening in Fiji and try and remove, Bainimarama and Khaiyum from holding power.

Anonymous said...

Talofa Lava PM Tuilaepa:

“This is a region known for friendly people and its pristine environment- a paradise on Earth. Having a (interim) Prime Minister dressed up in army beret and full military garb is a bit ridiculous.”

Tuilapea says that he has been told that Mr Bainimaramna is part Samoan... that he has a Samoan grandmother.

“I'm tempted to go down to the Lands and Titles courts and look up his family genealogy in Samoa. Then I'll send for his family matai (chief) in Samoa and tell him to reprimand his long-lost descendent in Fiji. To give him (Bainimarama) severe censure for being cheeky, being ill-disciplined and having no manners."

And what of Bainimarama's People's Charter?

“It's utter rubbish. He's trying to replace Fiji's Constitution with that People's Claptrap, or whatever it is. The Constitution is the cornerstone of democratic government and democratic governance. You only get democratic government by holding free and fair elections and having citizens elect their leaders in Parliament. That's how the system of democratic government works.”

Doubt that he will make any real revelations, cannot understand why he wants to hold on to the information and promise that he'll say more in the coming days and weeks.

He is a free man and has received support from one of the two strongest oceania nations. Spill the beans already!!!

Since he was a man in the inner circle of the coup, any "revelations" he gives will incriminate himself as well as Commodore and co.

That being said, it takes a measure of bravery to speak out against the coup conspirators.

It would have been braver still to stand up in your own country and face the people you wronged and admit these wrong doings to their faces, at the same time giving out these "revelations."

I am sure it has been highlighted that roko lui is not an innocent man, and it is important to note this.

As stated before he was a key man in the coup and was all gung ho for frank and co (hey that rhymes) in 2006.

He went into the 2006 gcc meeting and told Ro Teimumu Kepa (his na lailai) to shut up when she tried to speak against the peoples charter. Warned her that he would arrest her himself if she continued to oppose the people's charter.

This after removing raivoce (who was democratically elected as the lau provincial council chairman, "democratically elected" how ironic) from his seat.

And then those abuses at qeb. nuff said.

But then this is all common knowledge. The point here being, dont think that we have forgotten what you did Roko Lui.It seems that Just because things started to turn sour for you, you chose to take the moral highground.

You continually say that you are accountable to the people of Fiji and that you regret your actions, yet you make no apologies whatsoever to those that have suffered because of you.

Mataqali tovo vacava qori?

Granted you want to make a change its a little late but to each his own.

Why didnt you speak out when you were on top of Fiji.?

Were you benefiting there and didn't want to let go of the good life?


And just a quick word to the supporters of Roko Lui.

Why believe a man who is already accused of so much and who has already told lies to us in the past?

He lied back then, why should we believe he is telling the truth now?

God Bless Fiji!!

ESCAPE ROUTE

writer : LOSALINI RASOQOSOQO in Kadavu

5/19/2011

Thirty-six-year-old Apisai Bolatuku, who works for the Nagigia Island Resort in Kadavu, cannot believe that he was involved in the escape plan for former Republic of Fiji Military Forces 3FIR Commander, Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara.
The fact that he was one of the last locals to be in contact with Ratu Tevita has made the shy worker a talking point in the community.

Yesterday he said, he was surprised to find out that the man he had transported in the resort’s punt from the waterfront to a fishing launch out at sea, was the same Ratu Tevita, better known as Roko Ului.

Roko Ului escaped to Tonga on a Tongan navy vessel that same day.

“It was close to 9am when I was asked to take Ratu Tevita and a European man to the boat that was berthed out at sea,” Mr Bolatuku said.

“It was my normal job to be transporting passengers from the hotel to their boats. The two said that they were going out fishing. Most who come here come to dive or go out fishing and they come to sleep at the hotel.

“I took them to the boat and once they had boarded the launch, I turned back to shore. We watched as the boat moved out to sea and we could see it for about three hours out at sea before it disappeared.”

Mr Bolatuku said they were surprised to hear in the news that Ratu Tevita had escaped to Tonga in a Tongan naval boat that had picked him from the Kadavu waters.

“We were surprised to find out that he had boarded a Tongan naval boat,” he said.

“Some of the fishermen around here were out at sea and they saw the naval boat around there.”

Meanwhile, the Tongan government is yet to make an announcement on what step they would take in regards to the extradition papers being served on Prime Minister Lord Tu’ivakano for Ratu Tevita’s extradition back to Fiji to face charges of sedition.

A bench warrant had been issued earlier on Tuesday for Ratu Tevita’s arrest because he had breached his bail conditions.

@ MAREKO-you obviously do not know that the people on the ground here in Fiji really want a change. Have you tried to come again and live in Fiji? Have noticed the high price things around the City? Have you paid Tax lately to the Government? Obviously not-everything is taxed here in Fiji excep for the waste (shit) that falls out of humans here in Fiji. It's not right for the Tongan Government to extract Ului but if he says that he is fishing and was rescued then only God knows the TRUTH of the matter.

But the TRUTH OF THE MATTER is that people want to get rid of Bai an Airayse. One lie after another-but actions are different-the only deterrent is the blindness of the soldiers and their families in Fiji.

Point taken about returning Fiji to democratic rule, its just the motives behind his coming over to the "right side".

Its just a little bit hard to believe a man who perpetrates so many lies.

And like I said before, if he really does have revelations, why doesn't he just spill them straight away?

Why the wait? hard to take his comments at face value.

Perhaps he will be the shining light for democracy that he is being built up to be, and I will gladly admit that I was wrong.

But his actions up to this date speak otherwise.

And just a snippet on democratic rule.

A democratically elected government can trample a persons rights just as easy as a dictator can.

His motives as it is, is suspect. Now he knows what it feels like when the gun is pointing his way. All of a sudden his trying to champion Democracy! Why than didn't he defend those people (civilians) that were taken up to the Barracks? If he was a man of principal he would have left along time ago. Now that everything has been taken away from him, his principals have been shifted. His like a rootless coconut swaying with the currents..

I concur with you as to why he cannot just come out and reveal all, rather than giving us information that we already know and only tit bits of it too? At the moment everything his saying must be taken at face value. Until, more soldiers can collaborate his expose.

Another one though,
Did Tonga really enter our Territorial Waters, and would that be classified as an invasion on our sovereignty? I may disagree with whats happening. But for another country to sneak into our TW is another story aye? Than again.. Tongan Navy could have just docked their ship at Walu Bay and got Rt.Ului on board. Just goes to show how inept our Boarder Control/ Navy guys are. If Tonga can sneak in, than any country who wants to claim Fiji as their own can do the same. Drink More Grog Navy boys..

Roko Ului,
You have stated in our speech that you will return to Fiji an face the people once it returns to democratic power(legal govenment). Have you ever thought of those like the Qaranivalu and those accused under the military govenment(illegal govenment to which you were part of) and are now serving time for something that they did not do.They did not flee the country or being rescued. If you were telling the truth, why run to Tonga? You had your chance to make changes in Fiji when you were the commander of the 3FIR, but you refused that because you pocket was filled with $$$$$. If you are a real chief, i suggest you go back to Fiji and not abandon your people(especially the Lauan people) who are struggling during this hard time. A real chief never abandon his people, but always stands up for his people. Roko Ului, return to Fiji and lead by example for the Lauan people and most importantly for those soldiers who served under your leadership with the 3FIR.
