Tubou villagers remanded in custody as regime keeps Lau in its sight

REGIME ALL AT SEA: And now bullying Lau people for Mara fallout. Peni Mapa (below) at court today. pic Fiji Live.

The two men the illegal regime intend to make an example of because of the Roko Ului Mara escape to Tonga, are spending another night behind bars.

Peni Mapa and Malakai Sabanaivalu were unable to post surety today and have been given until half past eleven tomorrow morning to do so. 

Both are accused of writing a letter with forged signatures to the illegal Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama, telling him not to set foot in Lau. 

The regime says the letter was forged and elders did not say they didn't want Bainimarama to visit Lau, where Mara comes from. 

Prosecutors tried to say today the Tubou villagers were a risk and 'the case was of a serious nature and of national interest'.

The argument was shot down by the men's lawyer who successfully argued his clients have been co-operating with police and have not done anything to suggest they are a danger to the public.

Baini and Aiyaz, you days are numbered. Why are you upsetting ordinary people? I wish there was no coup from 1987.Apisai Tora.

Accused of writing a letter to the Prime Minister with a forged signature.

What sort of a crime is that?

Can't this be dealt with by the local Police?

Is the Attorney General really this stupid?
Why waste thousands of dollars of taxpayers money sending a Hunting Party to go get them and then locking them up.

Honestly are these people out of their mind.
How confused are these idiots?

Aren't there more important things to attend to?
What about the millions of dollars being fraudulently used on roads etc etc.Why aren't you locking these people up?

Now I know that there are Idiots in government. Idiots in the Police Dept. Just idiots everywhere.
Isn't there any voice of reason at all in this government.

This is nothing but a display of the pathetic and childish minds running this country.

Sharon can you please explain!
Why is writing a letter such a big crime?

Mapa did something that require a great deal of courage.

His heart is in the right place. But its a lesson for us when we plan to do such a thing, to spend some thought, planning and gathering of as many support as possible. If twenty people actually signed the letter would present a different scenario.

But he has done it, he has taken many positive steps towards fighting Vore, its up to the rest of Lauans in Lau to back him up by actuallyspeaking up against the visit to Lau or even better shooting, knifing/spearing/clubbing Vore dead while he is visiting Lau

There is/was no justification of 2006 coup because no one was threatened. The country had multi-party cabinet and the country was prospering. In 1987 and 2000 the indigenous people lost the power and an immigrant race came in to power. So there was justification. It is time for the military to go back to the barrack. The whole country is suffering and the economy is in turmoil. Rabuka

It is sad to see that people who wants to speak out their mind regarding thi illegal regime are taken in and interrogated. Some of whom as we have known have been tortured and thus human rights have been violated and freedom of speech as well.
FB and AG have told the media and Vocea ( Ambasador in Brussels )presented a report about Human rights in Fiji are not violated. So sad to note that the people of Fiji are held on ransom by this illeagl regime.
There is no Freedom of speech in Fiji and no wonder the extension of the PER have been implemented to protect them.
My advice to the ppl of Lau, just disregard them. When they come over you just go on with your daily chores and let them talk to govt officials on the islands. Just don't conduct any Fijian protocol of welcoming to the Dictators entourage.
Laivi ira ga me ra sobu yani ki vanua ka mo ni dui qarava ga na nomuni i tavi e na nomu ni lak ki na nomuni teitei kei na vei tavi tale eso ko ni dau qarava e na veisiga.
Its a shame that this man is treating hos own ppl like this. I Understand that AG has come up with a new law for Fijians to be called I Taukei. What he is doing is that he wants to allienate the Fijians from being known as Fijians and Fiji is their country. what a shame...

"To ye prisoners on the earth and in an earthly body and among earthly companions, what says Zeus? Zeus says, If it were possible I would have made your body and your possessions (those trifles that you prize) free and untrammelled. But as things are - never forget this - this body is not yours, it is but a clever mixture of clay. I gave you a portion of our divinity, a spark from our own fire, the power to act and not to act, the will to get and the will to avoid. If you pay heed to this, you will not groan, you will blame no man, you will flatter none."

And then Epictetus said: "We must die. But must we die groaning? We must be imprisoned - WE MUST BE IMPRISONED! he said - but must we whine as well? What say you, fellow? Chain me? My leg you will chain - yes, but my will - no, not even Zeus can conquer that. You say, I will imprison you. I say, my bit of a body you mean? You say, I will behead you. I say, when did I ever tell you I was the only man in the world that could not be beheaded?

It is circumstances which show what men are. Therefore when a difficulty falls upon you, remember that Zeus, like a trainer of wrestlers, has matched you with a rough, young man. For what purpose? you may say. Why that you may beome an Olympic conqueror, but it is not accomplished without sweat."

Epictetus, Imperial Rome, two thousand year ago, the origins of philosophy, the speculative spirit of inquiry into the mysteries of life and the universe -

My heart is with Peni Mapa and Malakai Sabanaivalu who have suffered the price of being men with consciences. They have shown the courage of their convictions.

Lau, do they stand alone? Plato

All in full regalia of course.

Brilliant idea, Ratu Mara!

First we show signs of solidarity and unite. Then we plan our actions, then we take the oppressors down. The key will be to convince senior RFMF officers to end it all without bloodshed.

I’d love to see the thumbs going up everywhere. And I’d love to see Aiyaz and his thugs answering for treason and crimes against humanity. Switch on your TV Cassava Patch Hero! There you can see Mladic being in the dock for his crimes, you see Saleh the dictator of Yemen hurt by the people and you see the end game against Col Gaddafi. No matter how good your running shoes and how fast you dash down the patch this time, there will be no escape!

If those elders from Lau were real chiefs they would all stop grovelling to Baini and instead step forward and state, whether true or not, that they signed the letter. That would screw up the case.

Right now we have a common national enemy number 1 in Vore and we must unite to overthrow him as quickly as possibel.

Please no disunity and tribalism. We are now in 2011 and under dictatorship that was forcefully imposed on us.

We should all TOGETHER pick up the momentum of Ului's fight against the dictator. All..Taukei, Indo-Fijians Chinese and all Fiji Citizens....we must reclaim our country back under democratic rule. GOD BLESS FIJI.

This just show how CONFUSED, TERRIFIED and SCARED Bainivuaka is... A letter of Freedom of Speech from two innocent, defenceless Lauan men have caused UNREST to National Security... This is the most Ridiculous, Laughable matter ive ever heard in my life... And its on the front page of newspapers as well...

This CORRUPT EVIL REGIME is just a big CIRCUS... Bainivuaka and his Evil Regime needs to start dressing up as CLOWNS, because the whole of fiji's FED UP with all this DRAMAS and he's just making a FOOL of himself...

Bainivuaka if you are reading this!!! Just want to say to you that arresting two men for writing a letter expressing their Freedom of Speech of how they felt about you visiting their homeland is a basic Abuse of Human Rights... ARRESTING THEM WONT SOLVE THE MAJOR PROBLEMS YOU FACING RIGHT NOW, OF HAVING SLEEPLESS NIGHTS...

Do me favor Bainivuaka you Evil Bastard, go and hang yourself, YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT... Stop terrorising the Poor Innocent, Defenceless long suffering Fijian people..... YOU SCUM OF THE EARTH...

Pardon Baini? r u nuts? The 2006 coup had more to do with Bai saving his own skin from prosecution by the SDL government for Treason and Murders of the CRW soldiers in 2000 then blaming them for corruption.

The body that could’ve protected Bai was the Great Council of Chiefs (GCC). That’s the body that protected Rabuka when he did the ‘87 coup.

Rabuka was really smart. When he took over, he quickly handed over to the GCC. So the GCC, the supreme institution for Fijians, said we agree with what he said and done, so we’ll give him immunity.

But now, who is Bai going to get his immunity from? Kai? (Lol) He’s abrogated the Constitution, dismantled the GCC, he can’t go to the church.
