Regime trying to gag Fiji media even more and specualtion over Pryde tenure

NEW DEADLINES: Used to be at least a couple of hours, not it's half an hour and they have to be sent beyond the newsroom goons.
In case there is doubt out there about the censorship of Fiji media, this was sent to media outlets this morning.
Dear Publishers

You are hereby requested to send in all news headlines to mediamonitor@info.gov.fj at least half an hour before it is aired.

This will enable us to effectively monitor the coverage for each day.

Your cooperation will be appreciated.

Obviously a ploy to control the media, especially radio (who some say had it easy) even more.

The new protocol comes as the dictatorship  tries to break the Methodist Church.

Not satisfied with cancelling the three-day conference, the regime has tried to sow the seeds of discontent between leaders by playing up 'divisions', despite them trying to keep them in perspective.

It fanned the 'reconcialiation' story and has fed info to the church that Indian members are acting as secret squirrels for the regime.

The stewards got the better of them, though, when they managed to 'meet' and endorse Ame Tugaue and Tuikilakila Waqaraitu. 

Bloggers following the Fiji media coverage (and that of some of the naive international news teams), will have been reading between the lines to get the real story.

GETTING HIS COAT: And returning to Fiji?
Talking about real stories, a  second headline  annoucement today: 

Dated today, it says the Fiji Court Judge, Justice Daniel Goundar has been appointed the acting chief justice from August 22 to September 14, 2011.

To be expected, the announcement was made by Frank Bainimarama's handler, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, who was quoted as saying "Chief Justice Anthony Gates is taking his annual leave."

Scpetics have already contacted Coupfourpointfive to say they have been told Gates has left permanently.  We can't verify that but as they say in the news business 'truth will out' eventually.

Editor's Note: It looks like MINFO censors backed off the new rules. We've been advised it sent the following email retracting AND apologising for the earlier email at about 4.55pm this evening.

Please ignore previous email regarding the emailing of all news  headlines to mediamonitor@info.gov.fj  half an hour before it is aired.  Any inconvenience caused is regretted.
Thanking you in advance,

Frank Bainimarama, I hope you're watching very carefully this blog. Your time is almost up. What will you do when they come for you and your family of crooks? Run like Gates!

The people of Fiji have waited 5 long years for this moment. We will enjoy seeing you pathetic criminals put where you belong. But not before a public humiliation. There will be no pity, only justice taking it's course. Everything you have done will be undone. Your families humiliated, your possessions seized and your freedom taken away forever. How sweet it is. What goes around...

Sources tell me it is being heard on the 30th of August (Tue). They also tell me that FIKOOKOO was against Judge Marshall sitting on the bench to hear the appeal. So they tried to make-up lies about Mrs. Patel and say they know each other well and have been seen talking at the Holiday Inn Suva.

Good to hear the regime has gone back on its original decision...

But you gotta wonder why they heck they would think of imposing it in the first place?

This week's Methodist Conference...? VRF?

As has been said about the Tripolic compound of Gaddafi, the wals have been breached - get over it!

Leaked US embassy cables are revealing a potentially different side to the Government’s views on Fiji and its military regime.

Publicly the Government has said it’s hopeful of a return to democracy there but has generally avoided making potentially controversial assessments about the chances of elections occurring in 2014 as scheduled.

However a US Embassy cable from February 2009 reveals foreign Minister Murray McCully told the Americans that Commodore Bainimarama had no interest in moving towards democracy or stepping down from his leadership position.

Mr McCully’s quoted as saying the commodore had settled in for the long haul.

There is no election in 2014.

Who will vote for this junta and its dictator?

The people 800000 must do people power revolution and free fiji from the crimes and hostage taking by the junta.

All these junta thugs, its hand puppet, dictator pisspot presidnet must stand trial.

A citizen arrest is needed by the 800000 people of the dozen junta thugs.

Time is up time for revolution on the PER cowards.

Justice gates has done a runner...Smells bad in next few weeks. Pride too will run for cover apparently urgent leave.

Then Frank and Aiaz will go on overseas trip and this time the final time will take their famalies and stay back like Roko Lui.

Then no extradition will bring them back to Fiji.


Your plan and challenge is now seeing day of light.

Funny how it was AG's bodyguard that saw Mrs Patel shake hands with Marshall. Smells fishy. looks like someone is trying stitch up mrs Patel and put her in jail as well.

I am always surprised that individuals both here and abroad, accept the lie that there will be elections come 2014!!
Let me tell one and sundry, locally and abroad - "THERE WILL BE NO ELECTIONS AS LONG AS THEY ARE ALIVE"!!!!
Let's stop lying to ourselves, face the facts, accept the realty of life in Fiji - Brace yourselves, THERE WILL BE NO ELECTIONS!!

Anonymous said...

Wasn't there a bounty put on the illegal PM and AG a while back? Was it "dead or alive" and is it still on offer?

Hunt them down said...

Gates and Pryde must be hunted down. The future of Fiji and in particular its children, must be safe.

I'm confused. Is Goundar replacing Gates as Chief Justice? Or Pryde as Solicitor General?

No election, only erection.

The censorship may have been due to a story run by FBC on the grafiti against government around the country. I heard it on their station quoting a senior police Officer but an hour later did not hear it again. Media gang say about 2 hrs later the censors demanded seeing headlines before it went to air

And when you leave make sure the millions are hidden away so nicely that the contractors jobs ar finished and gone or they will be taken to task. All works will halt on contract pricing to check if this is not another Suncourt like hiped up charges.

Sydney Morning Herald: US cables reveal brutality of Fijian regime


Chammar Ranjit Singh said...

US Government says Bainimara is (Kuku) or pagala man

In discussing the interim Prime Minister's motivations, US diplomats highlighted underlying insecurity in Bainimarama's personality. The embassy reports quote a former senior Fijian military officer and close colleague of Bainimarama together with the then chief of the Fiji police, former Australian Federal Police officer Andrew Hughes, who was removed from office as part of the coup, as suggesting Bainimarama suffers from post-traumatic stress arising from the army mutiny of November 2000, when he was shot at and nearly killed by his own soldiers.

''Bainimarama had never been in a combat situation,'' the senior military source told US diplomats. ''Unlike senior army officers who had seen action in Lebanon and other hot spots, Bainimarama's only [peacekeeping] experience was with [the Multinational Force and Observers in the] Sinai during a peaceful period.

''Thus, when he was fired at in 2000, the experience had a significant psychological effect that Bainimarama still carries.''

However, the US embassy cables also document Bainimarama's considerable political abilities, especially his ability to exploit the weakness of Fiji's democratic institutions.

Intel sources have revealed that former Chief Justice SIR TIKARAM, a close friend of Motibhai, has been BANNED by the coward regime from going to court for Motibhai's Appeals Hearing on the 30th of August (Tue), because of his 'overbearing' and 'intimidating' presence.

JUDGE MARSHALL was AG's supervisor of his thesis : sunset clause while doing his masters in Hong Kong. So you can see AG gave him the job, therefore, judge Marshall is AG'S PUPPET. He would do anything even lie.So if you reading this Motibhai's family Mrs Patel meeting Judge Marshall is a big lie and a setup..dont believe it..!! AG YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF LIE , SO THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU WANNA LIE..O NA MOKU , LASU LASU!! VUAKA!!
