Driti's case moved to the High Court

FRONTED: Pita Driti and lawyer today in Suva. picture: FijiLive

The decommissioned land force commander, Pita Driti, appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court a short time ago after a mix-up in hearing times. Earlier reports from Fiji caused some confusion regarding his whereabouts but Driti fronted with lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo. 

The news was not good, though. His case has been moved to the High Court where he'll face the charges of inciting a mutiny and uttering seditious comments. Vosarogo has, however, received full disclosures and has been given two weeks to reply. (original source Fiji Live and Fiji Village)

So Driti heading for High Court and the hanging judge Daniel Goundar while Mara tiki tours around the Pacific and ultimately the US. Now why haven't New Zealand and Australian authorities rushed to help the poor bugger?

You're the man Driti, unlike the skirt wearing Rokolui who can't even face up to his charges. Dro yani, sega na kemu tapi, daou yavu famili butabutako, vakaloloma takini keimami a kai Lau. Turaga Macawa.

Well, well well,,,,,,,,,,,,,driti isa driti you were almost going to bed with Frank.

remember your big mouth in support of the coup.

You also had the best opportunity to nail Frank & Aiyaz n his idots down and take Fiji back to democratics rule. Even if Prez whi is always sleeping on the job refused.

You would be 5% hero thou but will not change the fact that you committed treason like Frank, AG, Naz Shameem, Sharon Kubu Smith, Shaista, Gates, Pathik, Brynes, etc.

I guess its just plain no brainer & ill equiped intellectually topped with no guts.

but what goes around comes around.

Yip should have acted when you had the chance to overthrow Banana & co. Don't worry RUM will set you free because he had the brains to get out when the trumped up charges were put to him.

insane why charging him when the current regime is unelected and illegal anyway...

driti,better gather support and stage a coup now.

you got no other option mate

Driti must do a ninja escape like RUM and this will bring the junta down

The real secrets of junta corruption with driti and sure he will be sent to gail and no fair trial for him in fiji

So driti got no choice either go gail or escape at the right time

@.COM said...

Common be a good soldier and activate your exit plan like Roko Ului....afterall Fiji today is a battlefield...one has to out manouvre and out think the enemy irrespective of which side you are in....got the drift??

They were double minded on the day they plan to do the job.
Its a big regret now.

Sa tasova na sucu!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rai ki suva, rai ki beqa, kua ni leqa o na bula.

I suppose the reason why Driti couldn't do anything was because he was too busy serenading his "married-spare tyres" at Dragon niteclub. Oh what mid-life crisis...

SEMI MEO said...

Ok..ease up all you Driti bashers...he'll be right, don’t you worry about that.

Read my lips...Mr. Driti will be having lunch with Rear Admiral Bainimarama soon...s o o n!!

And can you imagine Ratu Mara, Mr. Baledrokadroka and others sitting down as men..Fijian men, commonly focused on finding a solution to our problem??

How else could we achieve a credible and mutual resolution??...how else??

Qarase asked him to stop the coup but he didn't.
I wonder what Pita's thinking now?
I hope he learns from this experience.
I hope he apologises to all the people he tortured.

Mutiny????!! And hasn't Bhainimarama & Khaidiot also excited mutiny? Hypocrites.com sara ga o rau qo...Levu ga na B.S!

Anonymous said...

Just a correction,driti's lawyer has received full disclosure of the the charge and they were given some times to respond to the "application" of the dpp to transfer the case to the High Court. At this stage, the case still remains at the magistrate court and there is no decision as such to transfer the case over to the principal court.a mention date had been set to check the response of mr driti's counsel to the disclosure.

Driti you had all the time in the world to do something while in the tob brass at the military but PRIDE was there...once you were in the Praise & Worship Group but PRIDE was there...once you were the father figure but PRIDE was there...Era tagi na lewe i Viti, o vakanadakuya...liu yani era na qai muri kece yani....WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND.

try to know n understand the reason why Rum donn't wants to face those charges. coz it's all illegal regime government. they makes the rules. ok.n they should be charge themself too.this is what they should. too. with all da blah blah. n all the writes they do with all the extartition. hardly for any government to reconized it. coz the government are illegal .n do u thinks u wants for a illegal government to judge u? tell me if I'm wrong. thats the reason why Rum do this things.so we can go back to the right side of lifes to live right.but if u still comes up n says, he's what n rum is chicken he runs away.he never wants illegal government to judge him.wen the government wil be legal he wil comes to fiji n face the real shitty that he's done. n he did say that.so. deep breath.n knows how the thing going.Illegal rules cann't punished no one. but they makes their rules n they makes their judge.with hatefullness.and everything until u dead in this earth.thats why US. destories all government.illegal.for killing civilian.coz they cann't speaks for any right.they wish.bless fiji.

when is the "civil disobedience" and "passive resistance" promised by RUM going to start? We're waiting.

NO TIME TO WASTE.
URGENT ACTION NEEDED.
TIME IS MONEY.

Keep The Faith said...

Mr. Driti if I were you, I'd be getting my orange incarceration outfit sewn myself now, enjoying the home-cooked meals and my family like there's no tomorrow.

Because it is THAT open and shut for you as dictated by the illegal and treasonous Bhainikhaiyum clowns.

Mara should have forced the change when he was in Fiji. He cannot make any change whilst not in Fiji. It is plain clear that Fijian people will happliy seat and get raped by this regime. One day we will wake up and it will be too late.

In the absence of an independent Judiciary, this is nothing more than just a show trial
There is no moral mandate or Natural justice here...

Aunty Nur said...

Driti is a pathetic loser. Like everybody else, he happily swallows the crap that Khaiyum rams down his throat. Mara doing a runner, Driti bending over. Are these the man we should pin our hopes to? Let's face the facts, the entire officer corps of the RFMF is a bunch of cowards who are ready to bully and bash defenseless civilians. When it comes to a fight, they dash down the cassava patches or run away in their boats. The military is the problem and none of these thugs is going to be part of the solution for Fiji.

We want our country and our money back!

Semi Pussy said...

Semi Meow, you change your stance like the Suva weather. You're more senile than originally thought. Get some help fella.

Anonymous said...

you military goons will be soon in your sulu with your lawyers in court.. Can you picture it,Driti could not ?? While in power you sort of forget that one day will come for you to answer to your wrongdoings. RABUKA,CHAUDHARY,GARASE,DRITI,MARA and many more .SO WHO SAID YOU AT RFMF ARE IMMUNE
Brothers in Military do the right thing ,make your fathers and children proud and throw the rubbish (BAI AND A ARSE) in the BIN

I was trying to figure out which one was Pita Driti in the picture. Looks more humble now then the terrorist yelling soilder he was trying to frighten the citizens of Fiji. I have no pity for him.

Anonymous said...

Mara and Driti, should cop it sweet, remember when you dish things out be prepared to cop it sweet when it comes your way. Mara, is all crap, running away leaving his family to face the music, what a coward. Driti will get his own for what he has done to the people of Fiji, Maras next. The only one with credibility is JB. Stood up to Bai, and came out the other end intact, with his head held high.

Anonymous said...

Well can't say much about what Driti's going thru now. Hopefully he has learned his lesson. What a far cry from the arrogant, "don't mess with the army, we know whats best for you days"! Well turns out we were right and you were wrong and now you're getting shafted by your best Buddy Vore. Hate to be the "I told you so" type of person but in this case not so much. Hope you can join the cause for democracy or at the very least the fight against this evil dictator. That would go a long way towards redeeming yourself in the eyes of many.

Driti thanks for being man enough to face up to the existing charges and the regime that has brought it against you. The yellow ribbon scheme will get you out in no time.

Vinaka Semi Meo. Those were my thoughts exactly.

Let the men unite. Let our country's problem be solved through dialogue and diplomacy.

Kiss and makeup, guys!
Kick and lockup Aiyarse!

God Bless Fiji!
Thumbs Up for democracy!!!

No place for hoodwinkers said...

Kissing and make-up is a given since we're a nation of christians.

However, the people demand that justice be done FIRST before the kissing and holding hands and all that. That means accountability for all that you've coveted and STOLEN in the last four years and counting. tik tok tik tok....
