Mara lobbies US Congressman on Pacific's 'most conspicuous crim'

Faleomavaega with Bainimarama
Frank Bainimarama's former third infantry commander, Roko Ului Mara, has fired another shot at the regime leader.
As Bainimarama tries to get the consultation talks underway to replace the Constitution he abrogated and formally revokes the Great Council of Chiefs, Mara has revealed the charges the police were trying to pin on the coup leader.
In releases describing Bainimarama as the "most conspicuous refugee from justice in the South Pacific", he says Bainimarama is just a "crim on the run".
Mara is also appealing to the US Congressman Eni Faleomavaega, who has supported the regime in the face of wide condemnation, to open his eyes to the true motives and corrupt behaviour of Bainimarama.
In a statement sent to Faleomavaega, Mara says Bainimarama's efforts to free Fiji of corruption are "a grotesque farce underscored by vindictiveness".

Good on you Ratu Tevita and CFDF. What revealed here is perhaps the most important piece of information that would interest everyone. It will greatly help in placing our struggle to free Fiji from this tyrant on a solid footing. This US Congressman is well placed to make an impact on the international front if he changes his stance which I believe will now happen given the compelling nature of the information now revealed. Please ensure that Bob Carr is sent a copy and other political organisations in the region that can help us in our struggle. Everyone who reads this piece shud boycott the constitution consultation process initiated by thius regime and cointinue to show support for 1997 constitution.

So what does this prove of Bainimarama? Simple, PM Qarase & Company had enough evidence to stop him in his tracks & the very least put him on Leave without Pay and proceed with investigations. In fact when you read the information futher -charges could have being laid, question is what was the then PM Qarase waiting for? So the question put to Roko Ului is 'you were supportive of Bainimarama then' which also begs the question if you were not also complicit in this whole saga-yes release photos the more the better but as a soldier and also holding asenior rank in the military hierachy you have some pretty darn good questions to answer to mate!

Cong. Eni Faleomavaega Hunkin is the U.S. Congressman most knowledgable and concerned on issues related to Fiji. He understands that U.S. interests in the Pacific were ill-served by Washington's over-reliance on its ANZUS partners to take the lead on all issues affecting the South Pacific. He also knows that he went out on a limb to offer support to Bainimarama, thinking that Washington was being too reflexively anti-regime because of its uncritical support of Canberra. He publically offered Bainimarama a way forward, which Bainimarama completely ignored, basically telling the Congressman 'alu e oso'.

With Mara's defection and the extremely damning BOI report, the good Congressman has every reason to re-evaluate his support for the regime, because his support was always for the Fijian people first and foremost.

Canberra's policies toward Suva probably rankled the Congressman because he's witnessed Aussie bullying of the South Pacific his whole life. But three things have changed. First, Washington no longer subcontracts its Pacific account to anyone. Second, Rudd is out, and Carr is someone who listens to reason. Third, Bainimarama's true character is now being revealed in technicolour.

Surely Cong. Faleomavaega will want to see how the constitutional dialogue plays out, but I believe he knows the islands too well not to recognize a Puaaelo like Bainimarama when he sees one.

Reply to Anon 2.40pm..You seem to be seriously out of touch. Roko Ului has publicly declared he would make himself accountable for his role in all these when the time comes. So stop flogging a dead horse. I think RUM is doing us a great favour with all the shocking revelations that have begun to come out of the 2000 and 2006 coups. The hands of this dickhead dictator is very dipped into those unfortunate ewvents that have driven this country to the gutters.I truly agree with RUM that Bainimarama is a criminal on the run. The merry go round that this country has been taken through for the past six years is just to keep the arms of the law away from him. All reform initiatives for e better Fiji is all bullshit. Your time is almost up dickhead dictator. We have to get him out of the way if we really want to rebuild for a better Fiji. Lock him up in Naboro first before we begin with the rebuilding process.

Why is RUM coming out now with all this? Why didnt he reveal all this when he was still in the army way back in 2007, a year after the coup. After all he alleges that after the 1st year Vore stopped listening to the MC (Military Council). Why didnt he speak out then?????

No matter what he says, its way way too late.

RUM...You are no leader and thus have no followings in Fiji.I'm sure that you would have been a
huge disappointment to your parents
had they'd been alive? Your major mistakes were many while you were here in Fiji.You pulled a coup against an educated Ono i Lau former UN Rep, to take over the Lau Provincial council chairman!And you misused the Lau provincial funds for your personal use.Your absymal work & dealing records in Fiji, doesn't look pretty? You owe debts all over the country&former regime brutalities victims have named you & Driti, as the 2 people responsible, for carrying out these barbaric beatings?Even your own mother's sister-The Roko Tui Dreketi- was taken in by you, to Delainabua for your terrorized shake-down!Your past history speak louder than what you're trying to
offer-WE DON'T WANT IT! Just so you understand me,we don't want you to try a coup or invasion,as
some of us may be forced, to setup a resistence force against you!!!

Anonymous 3:05, you've left off your list Roko Ului's greatest crime, which was treason, for having supported Bainimarama.

Didn't you leave it off the list because you're one of Bainimarama's traitors yourself?

Republic of Fiji
SUVA, Fiji, March 14, 2012 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. Congressman Eni F.H. Faleomavaega (D-American Samoa) was in Fiji this week to meet with the new U.S. Ambassador to Fiji, Frankie Reed, and paid a courtesy call to Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum today.
During the meeting, Rep. Faleomavaega expressed his support for the recently announced constitutional consultations process, as well as the Fijian Government's commitment to empower the voices of all Fijians, as outlined in the Guiding Principles, to facilitate truly democratic elections.
The importance of this inclusive outreach in Fiji is supported in an op-ed authored by Rep. Faleomavaega, which appeared in The Hill. In it, he points to the pitfalls of "democracy by isolation," noting Fiji's "colonial history, complex ethnic mix and chiefly, provincial, religious and family rivalries," which Government understands must be considered for the drafting of a truly representative Constitution.
As issued in an official statement by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the consultations are "an important step towards the country's return to constitutional order. It is critical…that the voices of all Fijians are heard and their fundamental human rights protected."
Congressman Faleomavaega and the Attorney-General also discussed the growing importance of the Asia-Pacific region to the global economy, inclusive of U.S. business interests in Fiji.
Among some of the most prominent American business interests in Fiji are Fijian mahogany, sugar, and the nation's first luxury casino and convention centre, scheduled to break ground at the end of this month.
