Chaudhry gets short reprieve

Sydney property at centre of Chaudhry millions.
The pre-trial conference for the Fiji Labour Party leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, has been deferred for five weeks.

Chaudhry's son, Rajendra Chaudhry, today formally asked the court to reconsider the three charges made against the former prime minister under the Exchange Control Act.

The Director of Public Prosecutions wants more time to consider the request, so the pre-hearing has been rescheduled to  September the 21st.

Chaudhry is accused of salting away $1.5 million dollars in overseas accounts without the consent of the Reserve Bank. 

He is also accused of lending money to others without due permission and of failing to collect debts having allegedly invested in financial institutions in Australia and New Zealand, and allowing money to be re-invested.


Several charges against Chaudhry were dropped at an earlier hearing with the High Court surprisingly quashing five of the counts of money laundering against him leaving just three breaches of the Exchange Control Act. 

Chaudhry's four counts of making false statements in his income tax returns have also been permanently stayed for an abuse of process arising from the same conduct being time barred under the Income Tax Act.

It appears Chaudhry fully complied with the Fiji Revenue Customs Authority's assessment in 2004 on the donated funds and paid his outstanding taxes. 

See our July 25 story on the decision to drop those charges

PM says SDL submission is racist and will not be accommodated



Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has termed the SDL party’s constitution submission as racist and said it will not be accommodated.

Commodore Bainimarama said the non-negotiable principles that need to be in the new constitution have been announced and racist policies will not be entertained.

He said he will ensure that principles like a common and equal citizenry, a secular state where there is no official religion and no religion will be given preference by the state, elimination of discrimination, one person one vote one value, the elimination of ethnic voting, social justice and the removal of systematic corruption are included in the new constitution before it is accepted.

In the SDL submission to the Constitution Commission, the party wants Fiji to be declared a Christian State, Christianity to be the state religion and Fijian to be the national language of the state.

SDL said they also want the name “Fijian” to be reserved for the indigenous Fijians and all citizens to be called “Fiji Islanders”.

SDL also proposes that there should be no provisions for dual citizenship.

Speaking to the Professor Yash Ghai led commission, the SDL officials said that the party wants the term “sexual orientation” to be removed from the Bill of Rights of the 1997 constitution.

In that section it states that a person must not be unfairly discriminated against, directly or indirectly, on the ground of his or her sexual orientation.

They propose that parliament and senate should be retained, some communal seats to be retained and the balance to be won under the one man one vote system.

On the appointment of the country’s President and Vice President, SDL has suggested that they should still be appointed by the Great Council of Chiefs.

Commodore Bainimarama stresses that the Great Council of Chiefs will not be reinstated.

We all know that Chaudry went around begging the poor of Haryana India to donate to the poor Indians of Fiji.
They gladly gave but Chaudry got greedy and pocketed the money.
Of course he should be judged properly

However unfortunately the Judiciary in Fiji is so corrupt that it doesn't know the difference between its arse and its head. (by that I mean it no longer knows what is right and what is wrong)

Secondly , we know that Chaudry got away with a prison sentence for Tax Dodging because THE BIGGER CRIMINAL Bainimarama gave him a special decree.

And that is the reason why The Corrupt Judiciary of Fiji dropped the case.

Sometimes I wonder whether Ms Yang when she goes to work at FICAC everyday must look at that stinking elephant in the room (Bainimarama) and wonder whether she herself stinks.
I guess the smell has rubbed off on everyone there.

-Valataka na Dina.

Chor Chodhry--the curse of the poor for whom the money was meant will be upon you and upon all the beneficiaries of your ill gotten gain --that's the name of the game-that's the law of nature-that's how it will be.!!---mark my word--it's written in the Gita upon which you swore your oath as the PM.The green turban they put on your heavy head in Haryana will be of no avail.you and ALL the beneficiaries now and 100 years down the line.

Chodo is done. He is going jail where he belongs with the other CHORs and Chandals of our country.

The Law is simple. You do CHORO you do TIME! -ASK LQ!!

But wait.. there's more, CHODO is also a TREASONIST and therefore should also be HANGED until DEAD.

IF Chodo does not do TIME... THEN its proven beyond reasonable doubt that Fiji's judiciary is compromised and Justice is for SALE.

Only the illegal AG can save CHODO's arse, and both Senior/Junior CHODO/CHORO are begging, begging, and grovelling, grovelling and worshiping the AG and Madam on a daily basis.

With all these CHORS now in NABORO, it is proposed a mini Parliament be operated in exile from there and there is a need for the Min. of Finance. CHODO/CHORO is coming SOON to NABORO!!

DESTINY AWAITS... Mr. CHORO..and MALIK DEKKO..... and in the meantime we are grogging every single minute of your misery....

e..o..Taki

LOCKUP THIS CROOK AND THROW AWAY THE KEY! HOWEVER, LETS JUST SEE HOW THIS ONE WILL PLAY OUT?

Anonymous said...


LQ's crime was unjustified enrichment and so is the crime of Chodohary. But the question is who is RICHER - CHODO or LQ??

Punishment should be relative to the amount/accumulation of the 'proceeds of crime', ie, more money more NABORO time


Now, if Patel with a $50K crime went in for One Year Naboro Time and LQ for whatever sum also another year than CHODO with his stolen millions should be locked up for good.

Chaudory is the biggest CHOR in Fiji's history. He is no Robin Hood. Chodo stole form the very poor to enrich himself and his family.. low..low..low

NABORO is ready for you.

mahen 'champion of the poor' chaudhry said...

The sad thing is that Mahen "Fiji ke Robin Hood" chaudhry built his career as 'Mr Clean'.

At least others like LQ did not pretend or shout from the rooftops that they were pure, like MPC did.

This makes MPC a big hypocrite, as well as a chor, of course.

Imagine, $50k given to beti as gift, new house for betwa Rajen.

What did the self-styled champion of the poor give to the poor? NOT A CENT!

Asli neech, daku, bekkar, ghar insaan from chor chaudhry Khandhan.

(truly a low, useless, dishonest human being).

mahen chaudhry ki jai! said...

The guy on the left with the black shirt with flowers and spotting beard is a big-time chaudry chamcha (lackey) and famous chaudhry chutar chato (masi polo).

chaudhry is embezzler and treasonist who betrayed the SDL-Labour coalition and should be jailed.

MPC is parasite who preys on the poor. He is not champion of the poor.

DICTATORSHIP WILL ONLY END.
WHEN FIJIAN WILL STAND UP LIKE MAN AND FIGHT FOR ITS RIGHTS FOR HIS GOD/FAMILY,CHURCH,VANUA,CHIEFS.

Mahen Chaudhry will make a good dictator.
He runs the FLP like a fiefdom, with son rajen, a dictator in his own right, the heir apparent. Anyone in FLP who questions maharaja chodo is shown the door. we saw shades of MPC's dictatorial style when he was PM. his favourite words: "I have the mandate" and "my government" ...hahahah!

Chor Chaudhry Khandhan said...

The chor khandan (thieving clan)...mahen, Mrs mahen, sons rajen and sachin, enjoying daddy's ill-begotten wealth.

Also in the picture two blind supporters who hero worship and maso polo chorwa mahen.

We all talking shit here about MPC going to JAIL.

How can he go to jail for real crime conveniently missed out by the DPP/FICAC?

People here claim MPC choro millions, but he has not been even investigated for that.

One thing is very clear. MPC will be a free man because the sold out judge dismissed his charges for tax evasion. When doing so the sold out judge chose not to ask for rerconciliation of how much money that was collected for Chaudhry personally by the letter he produced in court.

What about verifying that letter with Indian High Commission since money was chaneled through Govt of India.

And what about the balance of majority of funds that did not fall under that so calkled fund raisers for MPC?

Then we have MPC declaring to Tax Dept money did not belong to him personally but he held in trust.

So what did the sold out judge Goundar do about that? Is he also enjoying some benefits from this funds now give ownership of funds has not been established and not a charge in court?

Therefore regime will FREE MPC as he is good man who paid out back pay to Military.

Mahen Chaudhary is an Honourable man.

He is a die-hard politician and master strategist who recently concluded the FLP/SDL coalition. Now with LQ, the leader of SDL in Naboro, the astute and respected leader of FLP is now also the leader of the SDL.

Long Live MPC and FLP/SDL Coalition!!!

Bring it on Baini, Chaudhary will KICK your arse.

"Mahen Chaudhary is an Honourable man". This statement is a interdiction in it self. The world knows that he is the most dishonorable man in Fiji. He is a Choor who stole from poor and filled his own pocket. Is the the modern day "Robin Hood?"

ChoorDhry show me the money!!! you owe it to the victims of Monoveni. That is what the funds were donated for. Not to gift it to your daughter or son.

Mahen is "Honourable" daku said...

"To Mahen Chaudhary is an Honourable man".

He is a honorable, die-hard, and efficient fund-raiser in the name of the poor to fill his own pockets and give money meant for the poor his own family; he also honourably fooled and deceived farmers, while pretending to represent them, he was furthering his own political career and feathering his own nest, and increasing his own bank balance. he has $2.4m in Australian dollars_to show for it

Mahen Chor-dhry is indeed an honorable man, the likes Fiji has never seen before!!

FLP and MPC down the crapper said...

FLP and its leader’s a pathetic and miserable failure. Embezzler of Aust$2.5 million funds, one mahen chaudhry, an unprincipled man who will do anything, including open toilet doors, to get into power.

mahen has totally destroyed the FLP through nepotism and dishonest practices by appointing son rajen to govt job and in-law Sachida, knin as toilet cleaner, to the senate against party directive .

FLP is full of old farts and castrated bulls who who get urinary incontinence and lose control of their bowels when mahen or mahen jnr raise their voices. father and son totally rule the party over a bunch of useless and spineless FLP executives.

party name used to raise $2.5m for greedy chaudhry family coffers.

FLP represents the chaudhry family, not the poor workers of Fiji who support FLP, from whom mahen took away $2.5m.

FLP is in a kichar (sewerage pit).

Labour Party Delegates (Chodo's Chamcha's) should seriously consider replacing Chorwa as their leader bcos of 3 good reasons:

1. Becos he may be Naboro'ed becos he choro paisa form kaiindia refugees at girmit center and;
2.Becos he maybe Naboro'ed becos of his TREASONOUS actions in 2006 and;
3.Also becos he is very old and senile and may (hopefully) just drop DEAD asap.

What Lai and Mahen did or didn't do pales compared to what Bainimarama has done and continues to do. What we need to focus on isn't about past ethnic chauvinism or selfishness, it is about treason and murder -- Bainimarama's.
