New Zealand democracy group pushing for Roko Ului's visa to be extended

A new pro-democracy group in New Zealand has written to the John Key government asking for the former military commander, Roko Ului Mara, to be allowed to visit the country for a fortnight instead of two days.

The suggestion has come from the group the Fiji Pro-Democracy Movement in Wellington, which has been established with the help of the Australian movement, which organised the recent meetings for Mara.

Theoretically, Mara is not allowed in New Zealand because he's still on the travel ban list because of his connections to the military, even though he defected two months ago. But the New Zealand government this month agreed to grant him an exemption to make a flying visit to meet with government officials and the Fiji community.

Since fleeing to Tonga two months ago, Mara has joined forces with the pro-democracy movement in Australia and is campaigning to topple the Frank Bainimarama military via public meetings and so-called revealing videos, while trying to get the support of regional countries and further afield in the United Kingdom and the United States.

He is in Australia meeting with the Fiji community and talking to media but is heading to Brisbane then Sydney and should be in New Zealand about July the 23rd. But his visit is controversial and has already caused divisions among pro-democracy advocates and the Fiji community.

The longtime democracy movement in Auckland, the Fiji Coalition for Democracy, says Mara should not be allowed into New Zealand because of his role in the military and in particular, human rights abuse against Fiji citizens. Mara led Fiji's 3FIR squad, which was responsible for  terrorising and beating citizens. 

The Coalition has written to Mr Key and the Foreign Affairs Minister, Murray McCully, urging them to reject Mara's application, saying he can't be trusted.

But the newly formed Fiji Pro-Democracy Movement in Wellington (at the request of the Australian movement) is now urging Mr Key and Mr McCully to allow Mara to be allowed to make a longer visit.

A letter seen by Coupfourpointfive written by the interim president, Sai Lealea, says Mara needs more time to meet the Fiji community.
It reads: "The extension of his Visa will enable Fijians in Wellington and other parts of New Zealand to engage and meet with Ratu Tevita over their many concerns about their home country Fiji. We also regard Ratu Tevita’s visit as providing a unique opportunity to learn and be part of efforts to return Fiji to democratic rule.

"We note that Australia’s decision to grant Ratu Tevita an extended stay has enabled him to travel to key States there meeting and sharing with Fijians about the real situation in Fiji. This has been very well received by those involved and has led to renewed optimism and hope that both Australia and New Zealand’s stance on Fiji are well grounded and supported. 

"In fact some of us would like to see an escalation in efforts to further target sanctions against those from both New Zealand and Australia who are aiding the regime of Frank Bainimarama. Like Ratu Tevita, we share the view that while current sanctions are working, there is scope for it to be further strengthened.

"While others may have voiced a contrary position, we are firmly of the view there is nothing to be gained by not working with someone who's willing to put his guts and soul to secure the same outcome we're all been seeking for Fiji. 

"Whatever side of the argument one takes on this issue, there is no doubt we're all united that we want a return to democracy for Fiji and soon. The people in Fiji and the nation deserve it and are crying out for it. To quibble about Ratu Tevita's motives or indeed his sincerity to rid Fiji of the dictatorship there is sadly missing the real objective of all our efforts."

The group has also written to the Labour Party leader, Phil Goff, the Maori Party, the Green Party.

Good on you Sai, we support you up here in Auckland. We agree that Ului should stay in Aotearoa longer.

Long live the democracy for Fiji in NZ.

Anything which supports a return to Democracy for Fiji, should be encouraged and supported.
However, initially and in the long term, it is the Constitution and the Rule of Law that must be paramount over Traditional and Cultural remedies, especially given that they are already enshrined in the Constitution.
The Constitution cannot and must not be circumvented to suit any group, village, clan, chief or individual.

why dont people in oz and australia get it. They can hum and hau all they want, but their efforts mean shit, if the citizens of Fiji cant get off their asses and do something about their situation. OZ, NZ and rest of democrcatic govts know this. People in fiji have to demonstrate first that their loss of democracy and their need for democracy is greater than their fear of a despotic, oppressive regime. No point in fighting for something in Aust/NZ if the Fiji people dont think it is worth fighting for. And that rubbish about the fear of the militray is just an excuse to do nothing. If others in Yeman, Egypt and countless other countries have had the courage to rebel in the face of more oppressive and bloody regime, than Fiji citizens have no bloody excuse.


Tevita Mara..be a MAN ..you say you are, and return back to Fiji, and free your people.
This is a mark of a true leader, and if you die in the process...so be it. that will be your attonement and the ultimate price you have to you pay for your treachery and treason againt your own people and government.

Otherwise, you are no Paul or Mosese you claim to be!!/

well this should be interesting...anyone who knows the fijian demographics in NZ will know that wellington fijian pop is small compared to christchurch and auckland (being the largest), and sai (sorry to the guy) is a has been, who considers his brief time working for the NZ Ministry Of Pacific Affairs makes him a Pacific and Fijian political expert. Unfortunately access doesnt equate with influence, and sadly, sai has these delusions that he has influence with the politicans in wlelington, and has convinced the mara supporters in australia that he can deliever.

Will be interesting to see how Tina and her group in wellington respond to this new move, esp , when they would love to just "normalise relations with fIji...strenthening the economic climate is the best way to restoring confidence in fiji, and in the long run returning the country back to lawfulk regime".

BTW...the fiji wellington community are pretty disengaged, and rather unfortunately for Viti and the aspirations of the aust demo movememt, just dont believe it is worth getting involved..SO SAI, REALLY FOR THE TRUTH BE TOLD, IS A ONE MAN MOVEMENT WITH RAJESH AND HUGGURT IN AUCKLAND HOOTING FOR MARA.

1.Again, we ask why isn’t’ the young Chief shuttled up to other parts of Australia with dense former Fiji residents population and friends.

2.About time a reputable and credible PR company, Campaigning Guru or Corporate fund raiser be invited/ hired by these pro-democracy movements…may just improve the general image, promotion and brush up of the road map, and hope their road map does not end up like the potholed riddled roadmap now periodically filled bitumen decree by the Co Prime Ministers.

3.In the meantime, the Rear Admiral rules while his co PM control the purse and puppet strings....and our people suffer!!

In my opinion,they ought to be gaining support more within Fiji.Gain support of the 14 provinces like what bainimarama is doing.He's travelling around Fiji to gain support of the people...thats what mara ought to do.what good will it do to gain international support if there's no support in Fiji?There needs to be an uprising within Fiji..and how are these people gona do that when they in overseas?lol! people are scared of guns.we need to fight guns with guns.your talk will accomplish little.

There are 13 Fijian Christian Churches in Greater Brisbane, about 17 in all in this Southeast corner of Queensland. 8 Mandir (Hindu Temple), 5 Mosques, 3 Gurdwara (Sikh Temple) 2 i taukei association, 4 Fijian Indian Groups, 2 Rotuman Association, 1 Rabi Association,then you have the respective Vanua groups..and smaller pocket groups even some their own private mandir, Church ets..

Have met many of these leaders recently and no one seem to be aware of any invite, except the trickling of news from the faithful C4.5…

Anonymous 10.36 AM. The Shakespearan phrase; "the lady doth protest too much" is apt for people of your ilk. When Fiji was a democracy, everything that you, Khaiyum and Bainimarama are stealing and destroying was built up. ALl the FNPF, all the affirmative action programmes that you had at first criticised and then later decided were going to continue after all, Air Pacific, the Tourism projects, all the roading projects, the Fijian people were happy, the SDL government was the first government to think of having special scholarships for Indians and other races under the Multi Ethnic affairs ministry. Everything that you see around you was built by the previous democratic governments. Now, what have you and your Tyrant and Woman Basher Leader, Bainimarama, brought to Fiji. N_O_T_H_I_N_G. Talk about selective memory..LOL You my brother or sister (or is brother/sister?) are the true and total embodiment, the Poster Boy/Girl of Selective Memory.

Anonymous said...

@10:36 AM. You blood fruitcake.

Here's Why the Ernst and Young report was banned :

A comment on the MYFNPF blogsite has exposed the reason why the Bainikhaiyum regime has tried to stop us reading the Ernst and Young Report on the FNPF investment in Tappoos City. It seems the problem was one paragraph: “On 27 February 2007 Tappoos wrote to the FNPF proposing to downsize the project principally in light of political events that occurred in December 2006, which may have the effect of limiting Tappoos’ ability to source tenants for offices within the complex.” There it is. The coup slashed the value of investments in Fiji. Since then, four years of incompetent economic management and the abrogation of the Constitution, have made the situation even worse.

REPEAT: "The coup slashed the value of investments in Fiji"


It’s obvious that the Ernst and Young Report was commissioned to try to nail the old Board and management of FNPF.

So why wasn’t the report released?

Two reasons: one the evidence wasn’t quite there. There were hints of failure of process. Some documents couldn’t be found, proper due diligence appears not to have been carried out. Some talk (but no proof) of a personal property deal with Tappoos while negotiating the deal.

But the main reason for not releasing the report can be found one little paragraph in the report which the regime must want to suppress now more than ever.

“On 27 February 2007 Tappoos wrote to the FNPF proposing to downsize the project principally in light of political events that occurred in December 2006, which may have the effect of limiting Tappoos’ ability to source tenants for offices within the complex.”

That’s it. It was Frank’s coup which killed the value of property through-out Fiji. That’s where $400 million went.

I go back to the time when Ratu Ului Mara was the Landforce Commander..if he wanted he would have taken down Bai Boce and Fucked Face Pig Ass (Aiyaz Saiyad Khaiyum)and taken Fiji to the polls for election and democracy. But he slept like a snail and kept on listing to the two fucked face pig shits until the shit smelled fucked that he had to take off to Tonga for fresh air.

As they say it is never too late and Ratu Ului will be the one bringing Fiji back to the polls and democracy.

This is the time for Ratu to see who is and still is his true friends and those that used him for their benefit until he was the landforce commander. Dont go too far but look at Ratu's (once upon a time) best friend Lawyer Anwar Khan and his wife Michelle Khan. Anwar & Michelle Khan took blood out of Ratu for their benefits and when trouble came on Ratu the bastards tooo off as cowards. Muslims are not to be trusted Ratu.

Boarder Control has been well informed that Michelle Khan wife of Anwar Khan the lawyer and who owns Aussie Price Fighter smuggled ponographic DVDs, Dildos and other sex toys to sell to their clients from their shop Aussie Price Fighter. Again muslim bastards are ruining Fiji and we Fijians are only sitting and watching.

-Media restriction.
-No freedom to meet- PER
-My freedom to worship taken away.Cannot sing in the Methodist Conference Choir Compettion.
-Cut in FNPF Pension from 16% to 9 % because FNPF Funds was used to pay Civil Servants, Building of Tappos City for $70 million and Hotels Tax Concession $1.4 Billion in 2009 alone.
-My right as a Landowner is taken away with NLTB now a Government Property and come under the Ministry of Lands and taken away from the Vanua and GCC.99 years lease given for Agricultural Lease without consultation with landowners.(restructuring done by Noor Bano and AG) This illegal and straight out Land Grab.
-No Tender for Major Works and it is all taken by the network of AG and likes.
-Work Termination based on Victimisation and Racism.
-High Crime Rate. 1800+ home invasion reported cases in a Month. (Fiji Times Headline Report)
etc, etc

@Anon 11:35 - 100% agree with your comments. It is Vore and his coup that brought in the problems with FNPF mainly thru the loss of value of its investments. They're trying to overcoat it now as bad investments but in reality they were good investments that lost value thru the actions of one stupid man and his puppet master. Add to that people like Tappoos fully taking advantage of the situation and you have good investments turned bad.

Australians are the happiest people in the world overall, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and its new Better Life Initiative index.

In a comparison of people in the 34 OECD member countries, using 11 indicators - such as income, education and health - weighted equally, the OECD's Better Life Initiative found that Australians were the most satisfied with their lives.

In order, the next nine happiest countries were: Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Norway, Denmark, the US, Switzerland, Finland and the Netherlands.

Along with the 11 factors the OECD associates with a "good life," the index takes into consideration citizens' answers to quality-of-life questions like, "How satisfied are you with your life?" "How would you describe your health?" and "Do you know someone you could turn to in a time of need?"

However, adhering to the adage that what makes one person happy may make another miserable, the OECD has also provided a new tool that allows the user to tweak criteria to fit their own stage of life.

The interactive tool, called Your Better Life Index, allows the user "to see how countries perform according to the importance you give to each of the 11 topics - like education, environment, and so on - that contribute to well-being in OECD countries."

The index will eventually include the OECD's six partner countries (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa), add data, and incorporate new indicators, it says.

Just tried to get a phone number search for Milika Varani but to no avail...Would you have a postcode or better still her phone number?
