Regime skites to NZ about its good deeds

Aiyaz Khaiyum - or is it the Qorvis brats Seth Thomas Pietras and Tina Jeon - writes to the New Zealand newspaper, the Dominion, to say 'Fiji is working diligently to define a new future for itself' and will be a 'true democracy in 2014.' The following was found in the Opinion section in yesterday's paper.

Fijians control own destiny under Bainimarama

AIYAZ SAYED-KHAIYUM
Last updated 12:29 19/01/2012


OPINION: The Dominion Post can make outlandish claims and offer distasteful descriptions of the Fijian government (Commodore's foot still on Fiji's throat, January 10) but what it always fails to do is ask the simple question of what the Bainimarama government has done while in power? Wild accusations overwhelm any desire to examine what is actually happening in Fiji.


To begin, the government has strengthened the Fijian economy and created jobs. Standard & Poor's recently upgraded Fiji's sovereign debt rating. We have a net deficit position of 1.9 per cent (ahead of the IMF's recommended target of 2 per cent). And we have even sought to creatively align ourselves more closely with free market principles, including cutting or eliminating taxes for 99.4 per cent of taxpayers (putting about $53 million back in the pockets of Fijians) and significantly cutting taxes across the board for businesses to promote investment.


A "Social Responsibility Levy" has further been applied to the top 1 per cent of taxpayers to help fund new social welfare programmes, and all of the existing ones have either continued or expanded this year to serve the elderly, the disabled, pregnant women, school children and squatters.


The government is also providing real and tangible services to Fijians: new roads, electricity, clean water, subsidised bus fares, unrestricted internet access – including free internet tele-centres – most of which is being brought to places that never had it before. There's also unprecedented investments in healthcare and education, with new programmes to provide practical skill training for rural and maritime Fijians to better compete with their urban peers.


In fact, according to the United Nations second National Millennial Development Goals Report 2010, Fiji has already made significant progress in universal primary education "through strong and effective education policies". 


Enabling our government to deliver to our citizens is our focus on eliminating waste, fraud and abuse. Our government unreservedly ratified the United Nations Convention Against Corruption in 2007, for which Fiji has volunteered and undergone peer reviews by countries such as the United States and France. 

Anti-corruption practices have angered many who benefited from the old system, but these new ways have encouraged trade and investment – which we have seen from Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand and the United States, among other countries. 


New and further transparency rules will soon be put in place to ensure all government officials properly disclose their assets and investments.


MOST importantly, however, the Bainimarama government has undone decades of institutionalised racial and religious discrimination, and created a common and equal citizenry. All citizens of Fiji are now "Fijians". This was never the case before.


Critics in New Zealand and Australia may decry our process of establishing a path to true democracy, but what has enabled Fiji to get this far were the Public Emergency Regulations, which curbed self-interested individuals, religious groups and self-serving unionists – all of which would have prevented the passage of such decrees as anti-discrimination laws, the codification of equal rights for women, child welfare laws, and the equal distribution of land lease monies, among many other basic rights that previously did not exist.


Those emergency restrictions are now gone, and while Fiji welcomes statements of support from the international community, we do recognise that many in this group for decades either directly or implicitly supported Fijian governments that were corrupt, that relied on ethnic categorisation and discrimination, and that maintained only a thin veil of democracy. 

As obviously bears repeating, Fiji has never had "one person, one vote, one value". Yet the international community never required that to offer its backing to previous governments. They just needed hollow elections, which in Fiji merely concealed the turmoil of pre and post-colonial strife – which led time and again to destabilising events, coups and terrorism. 

Fiji will, however, be a true democracy in 2014 – consisting of an equal and common citizenship, access to substantive justice, and true universal suffrage. We will soon commence consultations for the formulation of a new constitution that will guarantee these universally accepted principles and values. 

Foreign media such as the Dominion Post and its columnists may make pointed threats and bluff with scorn, but Fiji is working diligently to define a new future for itself, one that provides Fijians with control of their own destiny.

Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is the Attorney-General of Fiji.

  1. What a load of shit Aiyarsehole and your pig Bocimagaitinana. Corruption is at it's highest level ever, the ones close to this pig shit of a leader are filling their pockets while more than 50% of Fijins are living below the poverty line.

    And what's this joke about everyone being classed as Fijians? Indians are not Fijians Aiyarsehole because they are not native to Fiji so stop this lunacy before a Fijian chops your balls off.

  2. It very annoying to read reports like this knowing fully well the lies and deceit it brings forth. With the Bainimarama government, corruption is escallating ( Army and Bainimarama family members special treatment). Khaiyum continues to play the race card. His favourite line: institutionalised racial and religious discrimination, and created a common and equal citizenry...We are not blind

    Strange - New Zealand has the same type of voting system - will we (NZ) be heading for coups and terrorism.

  8. What total crap. As for controlling their own destiny Fijians have not been able to vote for 5 years? There is no parliament and a military junta controlled by a dictator and his dimwitted hand puppet. As for organisations like Qorvis and individuals like Jeon and Pietras - they have to live with their own international reputation. One would think that bedding down with gun toting human rights abusing dictators would not be a great CV career move?
    Fiji is simply going nowhere under this junta. A cult of personality is emerging, group think predominates and anyone who thinks Fiji is going forward under these clowns is in denial or filling their pockets. The rule of law is compromised, the reputation of the once proud military is destroyed and the chance of credible inclusive elections is a fantasy until the cancer is eliminated.

  11. Congrats The Dominion Post for not only publishing but also identifing this piece for it for it is(young spin doctors for hire).

    # Memo Qorvis brats - google 4th Estate of Democracy?(free press).
    Then google The Fiji Times - what happened - where current owner is?

    Legal matters? Ask yourself how you people would react if your own attorney generals' approved a casino in your own country & then banned you from it on social ethnic grounds? Google apartheid?

    Google Naitasiri Fiji - fate of an elderly gentleman called Ratu Inoke - then google Show Trials?

    Accepting everything written by these people about these other people is both correct & admirable in its objectives - there remains one crucial Q's? Is torture & murder permitted in achieving these fine goals? Google genocide -- then how many constitutes?

    Here's 5 for starters.

  12. 1.2% net deficit is not being reflected in private sector net worth increasing i.e private sector net debt decreasing

    And thats the serious flaw in his economic rationale because that deficit is being fed from increased borrowing, and not a growing economy.

    To meet that deficit they are now being forced to issue international and local bonds at junk levels and to dig into the Fiji national supperannuation fund (FNPF)to meet the costs of running that deficit

    Even though they have increased their Tax collection, thats not created any balance in the books.

    The Fiji economy is not growing

    There are some truly sick, racist people on this site. So "Indians" aren't Fijians? That's right but we're not Indians. We go back several generations in Fiji and most of us have never been to India. No, we're Fijians. And we're "Indians" only in your fetid, pea-sized brains. Now listen up you kai colo savages. Wake up to the real world. It's beyond belief that you embarrass yourselves with these comments. No shame! Listen up, arseholes. We're not Indian. We're Fijians and thanks to Frank, no different from you. So get used to it or get out of Fiji altogether! Time has passed you by. Enjoy your exile!

  18. Kiwi said that as NZ has a voting system that ensures representation of minorities (Maoris) as does (did)_Fiji then it will lead (according to AG) to terrorism, discrimination, violence, etc. Shows that AG is wrong as that is unlikely to happen in NZ as the NZ army is responsible to an elected democratic parliament NOT just to itself (law unto itself). The Fiji army is the problem - too large, too expensive, unnecessary and unpredictable.

  22. Agreeably its another propaganda crap from the regime trying to hoodwink the world on the reality of the situation. While I can say all the items highlighted are BS I have a few questions. Why are these two hijackers of democracy hogging on to 8 ministerial posts between them receiving aggregate salaries for all posts in private. Will the mythical "true democracy" be decided upon by the general populace or handful of regime schemers. Who are these few individuals to decide what is good or not for Fiji. Who gave them the authority. Why does it have to take 8 long years to return us to democratic rule. There is obviously some time bound self conceited plans afoot with those hanging on to power.

    Every citizen is a Fijian if he is born in Fiji
    If his ancestors cme from India or in your case AFRICA- the rule remains.
    Everyone born in Fiji is a native of Fiji!
    If you think bcos your ancestor came first you are native?
    NATIVE TO WHICH COUNTRY-Like Indians your ancestors also came by boatfrom africa
    NO ON FELL OFF THE NOAHS ARK
    BTW- Taukei are NOT the original inhabitants of Fiji
    The Lapita people of Latin America were in Fiji First.

    The taukei should be Taukei Fijians or Afro-Fijians.
    If Indiginous -Fijian is used than the question arises ' INDIGENOUS TO WHICH COUNTRY? Lutunasobasoba also came from other lands (AFRICA) like the first Indian on Leonidas.(INDIA)!
    So Indiginous-Fijian is not he correct term.

  31. itaukei is identitiy of native fijians in a positive light.

    Fijian - kai viti is identity of native fijians in a negative light.

    amongst native fijians - itaukei there is no such distinction, where the only distinction is tribal between individuals and tauvu amongst tribes etc.

    kai dia, jaina, rotumans etc,etc, are just another tribe among many in the itaukei consciuosness, and a lot less threatening than the one that was in previuos histroy a potential enemy.

    why do you think the itaukei have been very open and hospitable to outsiders...they have never been seen as a dire threat.
    it took individuals from the vavalagi tribe to see and control the danger of themslves . itaukei have appreciated this but times change and they must beware all dangers in this modern world. education, observation and THINKING are the watch words.

    just as it takes a number of individuals ( politicians) today to stir up fear amongst some of the the tribes of fiji.

    soon the many tribes amongst the kai dia , refernced as one will become almost irrelevant in short 30 years time as they become 15% of population. the combined itaukei tribes will be over 1 million.

    the future of fiji will become extemely dangerous as resources will have to be shared amongst this groewing population.

    if the ecomonmy of fiji is shrinking then there will be less wealth available if we dont get our shit together and grow up into a modern state.

    having chiefs with no abilities will give no value let alone they have no values as shown by some

    let the people vote for their chief from the eligiable pool and let it be determined term of 5 years at a time or before if hopless person.
    let the provincialchief be voted in by all residents of the province.
    let us move with the times...cheifs who are crooks and have no morals have no right to a chiefly position . the position belongs to the people and not for one person to own and abuse it like his private property.
    if the people vote for a hopless person, let it be that provinces shame, but at least they had a choice....one they can change in 5 years if the person becomes hopless.
    the people need hope, and leaders who can give hope. not usless greedy wasters .

    itaukei dont care for the Fijian name as such, it is nearly meaningless to them, except to deny it to others, gives power to the weak and ingenrous racists, who are amongst all races on the planet.

    Thanks for all the information that you have gathered but we still are the true NATIVES of Fiji. God has placed everyone to where they should be or belong. And so where are the Lapita people of Latin America today?
    Maybe it was Gods will to move them out and we Fijians to INHABIT this beautiful Island just like of the Promised land. And then time came for Blackbirding when our Indian friends came to work and then Chinese the etc. But thank you again for ugrading Fiji for what it is today but don't forget you they are still Citizens if they were born here.

    All Fiji citizens irrespective of ethnicity is a Fijian National but ethnically they are all sorts.DON'T CONFUSE ETHNICITY WITH NATIONALITY.
    I am sure nobody in their right minds would want to change their ethnicity since that is impossible !!Nationality on ther other hand is fluid and depends on the passport one carries.

    Good respond from you both but as for 11.59am we r not talking about the MOON here God created the world for man to live in and NOT the moon.

    @1.18pm no land belongs to no one my dear friend. God created MAN to only live in it and have dominion over it. So if you say we r the invaders so be it cos the Lapita of Latin America saw Fiji as a very small country and they went ahead to explore and invade bigger countries like Australia, New Zealand and American.So as they made their move we FIJIANS have Fiji to ourselves, thank you. Our forefathers didn't mind how small it was but as long as they have a place to stay. Hope that you will get the message and if Not have your brain checked up.

  53. Viti was first peopled by Melanesians then Lapita then Polynesians amidst which were several migrations (Tonga, Samoa, New Caledonia, Wallis Futuna, NZ) because of its geographical position. So the iTaukei or 'native' Fijian is NOT indigenous. 'O kemuni na viavia lewa tiko se o cei e Kaiviti dina, ni dikevi kemuni vakavinaka.

  55. Vinaka Anon @ 5.23am, the Lapita left China (now Taiwain) 6,000 years ago, landed in Sth America then travelled to parts of the Pacific including Fiji 3,000 years ago. When they landed, 'o Viti sa tawa oti tiko. They then travelled inland from Bourewa (Nadroga). They were artistic while the original 'aboriginal' type Melanesians were peace-loving and lived in harmony with nature. The Polynesians only arrived into our part of the Pacific 1,000 years ago. Studies point to Lutunasobasoba/Degei migration as Polynesians and this makes sense because even in Kabara, there is evidence that when Daunisai (son of Lutunasobasoba) arrived, the island was already peopled. Na leqa e tiko vei keda ni da ciqoma vakarawarawa na Colonial history which was cleverly engineered to suit those who led us at that time.
