|SUNBEAM BUS FIRE: Company waiting for LTA results.|
Fiji fire officials say yesterday's blaze on a Sunbeam bus may have been a mechanical fault but intelligence sources tipped Coupfourpointfive weeks ago that those working to bring to an end the regime, had had enough and were going to start using IEDs.
IED stands for improvised explosive device and is the military term for a low impact precision device such as that of a small battery circuit that can be attached to the fuel line of a vehicle to cause a quick fire.
An email sent to us weeks ago said: "We have had enough of talks, this IED warning is real as we have about 15 made on hand. We are not terrorists, but our threat is real."
Sixty people were forced to flee the Sunbeam bus yesterday when the engine caught fire. The bus was on its way to Suva from Lautoka when it ran into trouble between Nawai and Sigatoka, about 11 am.
The Fiji Times has quoted the National Fire Authority chief, Tupou Saubulinayau, as saying preliminary investigations indicate mechanical problems caused the fire but they are investigating further.
The operations manager for Sunbeam Transports is quoted as saying they don't have a full explanation and are waiting for the results of a LTA investigation next week.
Sunbeam's Zahid Ali is quoted as saying they are very regretful of the incident and want to reassure passengers such an incident will not happen again.
In late July intel sources told Coupfourpointfive a plan was underway to launch an IED campaign aimed at destabilising Fiji's tourism industry in a bid to cripple the regime. The information went like this:
People of Fiji, Hear this call and hear it well. We have seen information that we provide from the inside hit worldwide ears and eyes and many rattling in the current illegal regime about the issues of:
· Corruption by current regime leaders
· Torture, killings and inhumane treatment of citizens of Fiji
· Demolition and sale of government owned institutions for self gains
People have stood up with these information from us, information that have saved their lives, helped them think outside the box and use the information against the regime. As these individuals seek restoration of democracy from outside Fiji, our chiefs and populace remain gagged and silenced, living in fear of the gun.
Businessmen are gagged through decree by the regime what to do and what not to do! We have had commanders who support this intel group but they also can't stand up due to fear of PER.
Everyone wants democracy but nobody wants to stand up in Fiji because they fear for their life and their families life. Everyone wants PER out, but how ?
This regime is blind and deaf, PER is their life line. Tourism is our breath at the moment that keeps Fiji economy going. Mara and his group are trying with their gallant effort to cut this life line from this regime, but it’s a indirect action, our tourism is not from Australia and NZ alone, we have seen tourism increase 10 fold from asian market.
So what we do we do to get a deaf and dumb regime to listen, yes its needs a big boom. We are simple smiling people in Fiji, but when devil stands at your door, you can't invite him in. Therefore we want to tell the world, and the Fiji regime, as we always respect the value of human life, you leave us no option but to cripple you from within.
Within next few weeks, we will target all popular tourist spots in Fiji specially in Suva, Sigatoka and Nadi using IEDs’ that we have successfully made. Therefore ,we give our country men a fair warning in advance to stay clear of places where tourists go.
Consider this a fair warning in advance, stay away from Fiji or your families might not even recognize your bodies!
This is not a joke.
We have had enough of talks, this IED warning is real as we have about 15 made on hand. We are not terrorists, but our threat is real. We will blow up big holes at favourite tourist spots.
