Rajendra Chaudhry comforts woman who accused him of rape after two-year sentencing

FALSE INFORMATION: Muskan Balaggan. pic Fiji Live


The complex case involving a 21 year old woman who accused lawyer and son of Fiji Labour Party leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, Rajendra Chaudhry, of rape has had an outcome in court today.

Muskan Balaggan was charged with one count of giving false information and was sentenced to two years jail by the Suva Magistrates Court this afternoon.

In sentencing Balaggan, Magistrate Nanise Ratakele said she was satisfied with the plea of guilt given by the accused although her actions sent a dangerous message to the society.

Ratakele said Balaggan's actions implied that women can actually lie about being raped and indecently assaulted "and such actions must be disregarded within our community".


Documents, including a signed statement by Balaggan, were obtained by Coupfourpointfive in August. They revealed t
he military regime's dictatorial Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, tried to influence Balaggan to implicate Chaudhry on a rape charge. 

Balaggan withdrew the charges but a 6 page statement given to us dated 22nd July showed a complicated relationship and chain of events between her and Rajendra Chaudhry (her defence counsel) and other parties involved. (see story on Coupfourtpointfive August 2 and 3)

According to Fiji media, an emotional Balaggan today had to be comforted by "her lawyer Rajendra Chaudhry", after she was sentenced. Chaudhry had initially represented her but it was thought another lawyer had taken her case up after she made the rape complaint.

Balaggan also also faces a drug smuggling charge in Lautoka and has yet to appear. (original source Fiji Live and Fiji Village)

Aiyaz should be taken to task for the part he play in these false accusations.
I hope Chaudhry sues him when Democracy is restored.

Who is this poor girl and how she came to end up in the Chaudhry household - remember Chaudhry senior is a serial womaniser and thief who has no qualms screwing his fellow Indians - like the $2million hoard in Australia

she has gone in for two years , so what happens to the person who pressured her to complian against a respected lawyer and the Chaudhry family. I think he should also go to prison-this will mean a clear "clean up". No one can beat the Chaudhry's. Keep up .

There has to be an international law that David Pfliger of Air Pacific, can be prosecuted for being the brain trust and sponsor of the Essential National Industries. He needs to be reported to the American Embassy in Suva for meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation. Pfliger's actions are illegal and ILO needs to haul him in before he destroys Air Pacific and Fijian tourism. I call on the tourism stakeholders to lobby government for his deportation. He is destroying Fiji's remaining business - tourism!

Kick David Pfliger's dirty white ass and send him to Fijian prison. He failed in his own country and now wants to look like a hero in Fiji. What a stupid moron.

Heard he was a total failure in the USA.
