Dirty secrets behind capture of Naboro escapees revealed

Strike Back police officers used the $7000 found on the escaped prisoners to party and beat the officer who got the jump on where the escapees were because he gave the information to military officers
 

Escapees: Capture caused fallout
Police investigations into the capture of the escape prisoners has revealed some dirty secrets about the Fiji Police Force and the Strike Back team commissioned to capture the escapees.

Police Commissioner Iowane Naivalurua had activated the Strike Back team based at the Ready Action Unit in Makoi to go all out to capture the five prisoners.

‘Dont rest until all of them are caught,” was his reported order to the 40-plus men.

Sources reveal, though, that it was the hard work of a Police Intelligence Officer based at the Central Police Station who got the first lead that the escapees were on the island. The information was given to him by a taxi driver. What happened after that is now part of a police inquiry.


It is alleged that the officer, known only as Tony took this information to the Military, rather than inform his Strike Back team.

The Military subsequently led the assault on the island.
Searching near Uduya Island where escapees were found.
The Police Strike Back team arrived at the scene to round up the injured escapees. They also took charge of about $7000 - the loot from the BSP bank - that was found on all the prisoners.

In a stange twist of events, which is now also being investigated, the Strike Back team clearly defied the orders of the Police Commissioner of 'Dont Rest Until All Are Caught'.

With a lone escapee still at large, about 15 officers went on a drinking spree on Friday night, allegedly using the money found on the escapees for their night out.

And to make the matter worse, once drunk they labelled 'Tony' a traitor for taking the tip off from the taxi driver to the Military.

At least three Strike Back team officers assaulted Tony inside the nightclub over the issue.

That same Friday night, Tony lodged a police complaint against the three officers.

Where the Strike Back team got the money to party, is now part of an internal inquiry.


Details meanwhile continue to emerge of the shocking treatment of the escapees at the hands of those who arrested them.

We have already revealed that they have all been beaten and hospitalized despite a denial by the regime, and a Ministry of Information statement saying no violene was perpetrated.

Coupfourpointfive has today been told that one of the escapees had the barrel of a gun shoved up his rear and the nozzle kept inside for 3 to 5 minutes. He is bleeding and can't go to the toilet  without screaming in pain. Another had a leg broken while another had his face covered with a cloth and hot water thrown on him.

A number of people have said on our Facebook and on this blog that the escapees deserve it but there is no excuse for the brutality. The Goons behind the uncalled for violence should be punished.

EDITOR'S NOTE: 
MEDIA RELEASE: GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON RECAPTURED PRISONERS
The Fijian Government does not condone the excessive force used in the apprehension of recaptured prisoners who escaped from Naboro Prison on Monday night. 

Such incidents are unfortunate and the Government makes it clear that behaviour of this nature is unacceptable. We are investigating the circumstances. 
(Please attribute the above statement to the Ministry of Information Permanent Secretary Ms Sharon Smith Johns)

  2. The escapees did not deserve to be beaten, they are Human Beings.. no matter what they did. If they escaped a 100 times, the authorities should be ready to bring them in a 100 times. They are not paid by Public money to beat up prisoners, or anybody else for that matter.

    Until Elections 2014….may be best to bring back the Road blocks and Armed patrol…though daunting and a contrast to the tranquility of our beautiful Fiji and goodness of the majority of the population..it may just be the best solution to restore Law and order again on our streets…..
    The majority of us do not deserve to continue leave in fear by the evil acts of a few thugs amongst us….


    Thankfully there are more of us than the thugs..our beloved Fiji...

  10. Semi Meo's solution for bringing back 'law and order' to Fiji is to post more thugs on the streets, in roadblocks and the like. I daresay that's also the Bainimarama solution.

    My solution is this: disband the thugs, arrest the perpetrators, hang Bainimarama, strictly limit the size of the army, and give more professional training and discipline to the police.

  12. What is this obsession that the RFMF has with sodomy? Are they now a bunch of bloody pooftahs?

    What used to be a proud and glorious martial tradition has now become notoriety for sodomy and assault against pregnant women.

    Such is Bainimarama's legacy.

  13. The problem with Semi Meo is this man talks and has absolutely no idea what is coming out of his mouth. He wants the military to restore law and order and yet these are the very people who are breaking the law. Maybe Semi, these soldiers should shove a gun up your arse and then you tell us whether you still think they should be the ones restoring law and order.

  14. Crime never pays. I am happy for these scoundrels to have been beaten because when they perpetrated robberies and violence against innocent citizens did they for a moment think of the Rights of those whom they were robbing or assaulting? I have read some people talking about human rights of these scum bags. Wake up fellas you can't ask for rights if you have failed to protect the rights of those you have hurt through daring crimes.Finally, people like Santa Maharaj make no valuable contribution with his less than eloquent language. I wonder who would vote for this nin comp poop Maharaj in the elections in 2014.

  15. I feel sorry for the prisoners but I feel more sorry for the victims of their initials crimes for which the prisoners are now paying for. I fully support the strong arm tactics of the Police. Call it brutality but how brutal are the rapes, murder, violent home invasions these men are in prison for? Lets not forget, these are not common criminals. They deserve everything they get and more. All you do gooders out there, I am sure sure you would feel strongly different if your wife was raped by one of these animals.

    UNEMPLOYMENT CRISIS LOOMING – How the Essential Services Decree will eliminate 15,000 jobs – CFDFiji.org

    by Council for a Democratic Fiji





    Those watching events in Fiji will have come to the conclusion a long time ago that the issuing of decrees by the regime is an informal affair. These ‘laws’ are promulgated with minimal forethought and usually with the best interests of the regime leaders and their sycophants in mind.

    So it was with the Essential Services Decree which, quite justifiably has stirred up the International Labour Movement. We heard on Fiji TV last night from David Voss that, due to US sanctions we will be losing 15,000 jobs in the very near future. What David failed to mention was that this is due to the above mentioned Essential Services Decree.

    39 Companies presently exporting into US through duty free markets will lose this benefit after the 2nd October hearing in the US which is likely to go against Fiji unless the Decree is withdrawn instantly. Keeping silent over the matter will not resolve the crisis and if the Attorney General is standing in the way of saving the jobs, he must be ejected from the Office.

    The CFDFiji calls on the regime to immediately repeal this malformed and self serving piece of ‘legislation’ to avoid this further disastrous calamity for our already struggling economy. Having asked this we feel sure that due to the personalities of the individuals involved they will not heed this request – it would seen to be an admission of failure and a loss of face. No other adverse impacts would be felt by the poor and needy in Fiji.

  23. In other countries the police would've certainly been criticised for doing such a poor job and prison guards wuuld be under investigation as well but they wouldb't get rifles shoved up their arses or hot water hurled on their faces or their legs broken. That sort of violence would've got police in big torible and there would an independent inquiry and probably compensation for the victims.

  24. An employee at the Prime Minister's office appeared before Magistrate Janaka Bandara yesterday charged with alleged bribery.

    The court heard that Rudra Maharaj is alleged to have taken bribes amounting to $10,000.

    Defence Counsel for Maharaj told the court that his client is in custody since Monday and he has a wife, children and grandchildren who want to see him at home.

    FICAC counsel is asking for the accused to be further remanded as investigations are continuing.

    Bail has been refused and Maharaj will reappear on Friday.

    It is rumoured that the bribe was for the tin pot dictator however this civil servant took the loot before the despot could put it in his corrupt pocket.

  25. If you are a murderer and they catch you, they won't shove a gun up your arse if you are related to Bai.
    They will give you cupcakes, then release you after 5 months and then give you a Ministerial job.
    You can even become Commissioner of Police.
    Just ask Frances Kean.
    Bainmarama is corrupt
    And what we have operating in Fiji are not police and a civilised army but a bunch of thugs put there by Aiyaz and the Shameem sisters.

  26. If indeed it is true that those police partied with the stolen money from BSP, then, all this talk about integrity from the ComPol could be a smokescreen, for something really ugly behind the scene. And he needs to be reminded that there is a clear demarcation between civil servant and political leader/minister of the government. Family members of civil servants do not participate publicly 'cos they are mere servants of the public. It is a matter of understanding what professionalism is all about which has been, since his appointment, ComPol's favourite topic.

  27. Judiciary interferenceSeptember 27, 2012 at 8:54 AM

    The Marshall revelation has really nailed the coffin for AG but he has at least boosted patriotism by usage of words like Fijian and Fiji in its people and products and, he has introduced some, not all, great decrees. But, if there is to be some semblence of dignity in our judiciary, then, interference such as that alleged by Marshall & others must be nipped off!

  29. For all you Human Rights advocates out there, Human Rights goes both ways.... these thugs did not consider the rights of their victims when they carried out their violent criminal acts. If you have been a victim of violent criminal activity, believe me, you'll be singing a different tune. You may argue that Violence begets more violence and I grant you that. Unfortunately, for these criminals, violence is the only language they understand. Has the Yellow Ribbon project worked for them? NO! If you molly-coddle them, they will see that as a sign of weakness and push their advantage to gain the upper hand. After the beating they received, they will think twice of escaping. Other criminal elements are now put on notice that this is the fate that awaits them should they end up on the wrong side of the law. They choose to live a life of crime, they should be ready to face the consequences thereof. Don't cry, don't complain, don't go looking for sympathy. Accept it as your lot for that is your chosen path. Man up and take it on the chin. Don't take the coward's way out and go hiding behind skirts and human rights declarations. What goes round, comes round. You reap what you sow. Do to others, what you want them to do to you.

  32. 7 appear for harbouring

    17:04 Wed Sep 26, 2012

    The three women and four men have been remanded in custody after their bail application was refused.

    Taniela Yauyau, Laisa Elder, Livai Nabulu, Unaisi Ciri, Epeli Qaqa, Merewalesi Sikudimuri and Asaeli Vulanunumi are all charged with harbouring.

    Accused two, Laisa Elder is also charged with receiving stolen property.

  38. Phylosophical says...following the 87 coup, the level of brutality metted by the Army against pro democratic movement persons and mainly Fijian Indians had set the prelude for the violence experienced in Fiji today. Soldiers returning from Lebanon and Sinai spoke of their experiences and how they would torture and brutalise during their TOD. They were in a situation and country of violence and they justified their acts due to this. 1987 being a bloodless coup was a whole lot of bull shit. Blood from mainly Fijian Indian mothers, father, sons, daughters and even grand parents spilled through the streets of Fiji after the actual act of the coup in the parliament house.

    Rabuka gave his military goons the approval to mete out the same violence. True spirited pro democracy movement persons (unlike the BS ones on this blog), unionists and the lot were halled to military camps or police stations across Fiji where they were subjected to the same physical, degrading violence as experienced by the captured prisoners. Screams could be heard from police stations. Others were taken up to bush land brutalised and violated. Military camps were larger complexes and the military were well versed in hiding muffling the noises of their brutality.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Phylosophical continued...


    The 2000 coup saw the level of brutality and violence jump up a number of scales. Rebels set the stage with their brutality and murderous acts followed by the loyalist soldiers in re-capturing the parliament house, police stations and military camps taken over by the rebels.

    The 2006 coup took the level of violence up several decibals mainly against the public.

    Due to the downturn in economy, massive urban drift and flailing sugar economy, crime increased dramatically and the level of violence in the acts by the criminals increased tenfold. Fiji has had murders almost once a month, home invasions, rapes and brutal attacks never seen since our independence in 1987.

    Many of the young leaders of today have never experienced Fiji when the country was coined 'Fiji the way the world should be'.They either were yet to be born or were toddlers when the 87 coup happened. The Fiji they grew up in following the 87 coup was 7 years of oppression, suppresion, aggression and violence by the Rabuka dictatorship from 87 to 94. When Fiji did return to democracy come 1994, many of the children by this time were teenenagers and the new democratic Fiji was new to them. What was etched in their minds were the difficulties faced by their families in trying to put bread on the table, keep a job, domestic violence, corruption, bribery and increased criminal activities and violence by the criminal elements who took advantage of the situation.

    These children and unborn children of 1987 coup witnessed the violence of 2000 coup by the rebels and the orgies of looting, brutality, murders carried out by the itaukei rebels in parliament house and across Fiji including Vanualevu.

    By the year 2006, many of these children of 1987 were young adults and 6 years thereon, many of them are now young leaders in Fijian society.

    This is the Fiji our children have been raised, a pacific paradise with a history hidden in murders, violence and brutality.

    Has much as people attempt to blame Frank for the events of today, we the itaukei of Fiji in wanting the 1987 coup had set the course and destiny we are now experiencing.

    Once again I call out for reconcilliation. The people of Fiji need to know the truth behind the 1987 coup. The people still do not know who was behind it all. Sitiveni Ligamamada Rabuka needs to 'tolo' and let the people know the truth.

    The same with the 2000 coup. Those behind the coup must be brought to justice and the truth of the perpetrators behind the coup need to be known.

    Itaukei Religious and Political leaders, chiefs and the like need to apologise to our Fijian Indian communities for the actions of 1987 2000.

    Community leaders must reach out to Frank and the President and other political leaders to held steer Fiji and most importantly our future, our children in the right direction so they will know what fiji was like when the country was coined, 'FIJI THE WAY THE WORLD SHOULD BE'.

  48. Hmmm.... this whole saga re prison escapees, BSP robbery, their capture by the military, stolen money in the hands of civilian police spent on partying and extreme violence meted upon them by Fiji's security forces just doesn't add up...

    Is there irrefutable proof that the escapees were actually part of that bank robbery, were they identified? Or the escape from prison a convenient cover for the actual robbers? It all seems too convenient a coincidence between their easy escape from Naboro and the well-planned bank robbery. Not enough information in the media to convince a reasonable bystander that the escapees were the robbers themselves.

    What is the chance that others (perhaps military/police security forces themselves as they're 'in the know') that had planned and executed the bank robbery to coincide with the 'planned release' of the convicted prisoners. Hmm...? Do we know how much $$$ in total was taken from the bank?

    inside his house and brought out a
    big pots and started to banged on it for 1 minute?The police came by
    and took him to Totogo for interrogation? I told the cops that
    Parasad is a wee bit crazy,and it
    might be advisable to live him alone as the man has just been released from St Giles a couple of hours ago,and he was a bipolar?
    They immediately left the poor man

  57. Kamlesh Kumar[rubber stamp] your memory has lapsed. In 1987 this man voluntarily made way for Rabuka to execute coup. The approach was first made to him but he quietly sneak through to overseas. Now that his tenure expires on 12th Oct,this is a ploy to take another exit and make room for a very well known person to grab the position. Another reason could be that nothing is going right and Chaudhry's delegation is climbing the hill tomorrow with a list of demands.Also and the most serious one is the US sanction looming so the horse bet man has to look for an exit one more time.

    give and receive of this world...

    you break the law ,you might get caught, you might go to prison and there are two certainties....a victim of crime and an escaped prioners beating.

    the criminals have utilized their freedom and human right to the full extent...the right to be criminal, the right to be cunning and not get caught, the right to defend themselves in court, the right to escape and not get caught.

    they have many rights and escapees utilize them all to the maximum....even and including to getting a father of a hiding on capture.

    every escape gets this right, ONLY if they get caught.

    so, these adventurers and risk takers must obviuosly do their swat analysis ...then decide to go for it. THATS THEIR RIGHT!!!

  65. Phylosophical can't spell iTaukei words like Dakuwaqa because he's really a Pommy blogging from Brisbane, where he's Semi Meo's bum buddy.

    The guy keeps calling everyone else 'anonymous cowards' but he doesn't use his own name either. Which means he's not just a coward but a moron and a hypocrite as well.

    The army is the author of all of Fiji's problems, but what is Semi Meo's solution? Give them even more power. The very people he expects to bring us elections are the ones shoving gunbarrels up everybody's backsides.

    The army might well have been behind the prison escapes. They had the opportunity and motive. Who else could have sprung the inmates from behind bars? How could the inmates have devised and executed such well-planned scenarios so quickly and without resources? The army could have planted the money on the inmates.

    I think Bainimarama and his advisors planned the whole thing. They did so to give Bainimarama an excuse to stay home during Jericho and also an opportunity to move against Naivalurua.

  68. The authorities now believe the 'sightings' of RUM on Vanua Balavu were all just part of a big psych job. It worked, though, by helping to keep the regime off-balance.

    Jericho was effective. It frightened Bainimarama and kept the regime guessing.

    And it may not be over. There's some speculation that some within the police and army and even the regime watched Jericho closely to gauge public sentiment in preparation for their own moves against Bainimarama.

    I think they'd have to come away with a mixed view. Jericho was loud in some neighbourhoods but not in others. The regime was unable to stop it, but the Loyal Opposition should have done more with it.

    Yet look what Jericho accomplished. It was essentially one person, 'Dakuwaqa', operating through just one website, Coup 4.5. And it was enough to unnerve the regime.

  74. Phylosophical says...Have you heard of the story of the Fijian Indian man and itaukei fishing out in the sea. The Fijian Indian man was the better fisherman and caught lots of fish. The itaukei fishing nearby saw this and recalled the Fijian Indian man was very superstitous especially when he would tell him stories of old Fijian demi Gods especially the shark God Dakuwaqa. The itaukei decided to play a prank. He quietly slipped into the water, swam towards the Fijian Indian man's boat without being seen and when he reached the boat, shook the boat as hard as he could. The Fijian Indian man was frightened by the ordeal and shouted out, ocei ko iko? The itaukei responded from the water, 'Ko au ko Dakuwaqa. Koiko sa butako na qau ika. Koi au sa dudru baka levu' The Fijian Indian was so scared that he threw all his fish overboard which the itaukei gathered up and swam back to his boat. When he got to his boat he was giggling and the Fijian Indian man realised he had been tricked. After a while the Fijian Indian man decided to play the same trick against the itaukei, slipped into the water, swam to the itaukei's boat and shook it. The itaukei screamed out in fright, Oi, a cava qo. The Fijian Indian responded, KO AU QO NA DAQUWAWA.

    Thats the name I gave to the Anonymous Coward who lives overseas and wants to call himself the name of a itaukei demi God. Slips in with his bullshit which everyone knows apart from you idiots who think Jericho has had any impact but the bull shit is known and his identity is also known.

  79. Phylosophical says to Anon 6:36pm...Your a coward and your identity is known. Remember the coup of 1987. The Fijian Indians, Unionist and Pro Democracy Movement people fought back against Rabuka. They were taken to Military Camps and Police stations. They were raided in early hours of the morning. They were stripped, abused, brutalised but they got up and kept fighting until the COWARD Rabuka relented realising the itaukei was all just TALK. Same thing your doing here, ALL TALK and surprisingly you had the opportunity when you were in Fiji to do something but you did nothing so your all talk and pathetic without any dignity. No point telling us here in Fiji what to do from the comforts of your home overseas. When Mahen was the finance minister and the itaukei workers went on strike, Frank wanted to give the strikers what they wanted. Mahen said to Frank, give it three weeks and they will run back to work. He explained to Frank the Fijian Indians have had to vosota since the day they arrived in Fiji as Indentured Labourers and know what it feels like to be oppressed, subjugated, violated, brutalised and they know how to survive. The itaukei, all he wants to do is drink grog, fill his belly and sleep all day. Mahen was right. The strikers did not even last the three weeks. The first week the vatuniloa was full. The second week the strikers mainly women their husbands were the first to abuse their wives for not having food prepared and ready and did not care about the fight. While the grog and food was free for the first week they were satisfied. That is reflective of the itaukei today. Lazy and gutless fighting an anonymous battle no one knows about and cares about. We are sick and tired of this bs which permeates of 87 and 2000 manipulative bull shit artist including you so if you are gutless, stay where you are overseas and speak freely about what was and could have been because you cannot do anything now that will raise the true hopes and aspirations of the people suffering in Fiji today. You do not bring any hope but fear like the fear you have in your heart and you are not worth believing. Have a nice weekend and think about it. Fly back here and do something because you were in a position to do so. If you LAMU, tikolo and tonoka na matani demu

  84. phylosophical...

    Your story about the 1987 and 2000 coups is not true.

    You see Rabuka and Speight are more courageous than Bainimarama because Rabuka returned the country to to an interim civilian government shortly after his military takeover. He had the guts to go to the people to publicly apologize for his role and to the people of Vuda and Dr. Bavadra's family and people.

    Speight is serving a life sentence and is deservedly paying his debts to the people for what he did in 2000.

    But your hero Bai is totally scared. Firstly, he was one of the planners of the 2000 coup and he conveniently absented himself overseas when it happened. Then he liumuri his own CRW Unit who later sought revenge. Bai obviously could not fight back so he cowardly ran down that Nabua cassava patch which is a well-known story now.

    Then your hero Bai was later ready to be charged for his cowardly role in the 2000 coup in which Speight was the fall-guy. This is why the 2006 coup happened. The picture is very clear like Qarase used to say, "sa matata tu na mata ni meke".

    Your hero Bai just could not face the music. He is obviously living in fear because he actually does not know what miserable end is going to happen to him. He could not go to USA to that UN meeting because he could not trust his fellow coup friends to hold the fort lest they oust him. That was the Jericho effect.

    Bai will not be able to run away from his guilty and cowardly conscience because it will haunt him forever.

  86. Anon @ 7.49pm Rabuka's coup was a smooth sailing one because he was backed up by the very powerful 'you know who' and, yes, I agree, it was noble of him to visit Viseisei and apologise, in fact, courageous of him. Speight, just happened to be in the wrong place at the right time for some and carried out the dirty work for a coward who pretended he didn't know. And yes, I agree also, Speight is paying the price for his courage but moreso, for his stupidity. Bainimarama's coup was also wrong like the previous ones but at least, the people feel safe under his regime and if you go out and speak to the mass, they will say they prefer his leadership. IT is the AG they do not like but I guess he must be providing the the vision for this lot and that's why they're stuck with him.

  87. Phylosophical says to Anon 7:49pm and Anon 9:26am....

    Story of 87 and 2000 coup...

    You both say Rabuka and George Speight are corageous. Tell me what is so corageous about holding a country at ransom but carrying out a coup. What is corageous about attacking defenseless old men, women and children mainly of the Fijian Indian race. What is corageous about holding the gun at the head of an old Indian men and women, herding them into trucks. What is corageous about abusing, violating, raping, looting that happened in both 87 and 2000. There is nothing corageous about what RABUKA AND SPEIGHT carried out. They had the guns and trained military personnel behind them and they attacked defenseless people.

    It took Rabuka 7 long years to realise what a fool he was. He was allowed to carry on politicking for a further 5 years and set up the 1997 constitution which protected him and which he thought would allow him to become the President of Fiji but alas, fate has its ways and its not over for him.

    SPEIGHT nothing corageous or being in the right or wrong place. He was just a fool with a mouth of the south and is where he deserves to be today.

    Frank - He may be guilty of knowing the planning behind the 2000 coup. The same can be said with all other high ranking military officers including Tarakinikini, Seruvakula, RUM and others who were approached. The perpetrators led by the same 87 manipulating itaukei politicians using land, race and other racially based politics to convince the military.

    There is nothing right about any coup including Franks.

    What we as individuals need to make right first and foremost is acknowledge our actions in all, 87, 2000 and 2006 coup.

    We itaukei supported the 87 and 2000 coup foolishly and blindly believing it was benefitial for our people and we are now paying the price. I do not see any one of you itaukei on this site admitting what itaukei did in 87 or 2000, attacking, beating, killing, raping was wrong or should not have happened.

    We continue to play the race cards even on this site.

    You all talk of putting Frank down but none of you has the COURAGE to do it and do it the right way because you all live in FEAR and now we understand what it must have felt like for the Fijian Indians back in 1987 and 2000. No wonder they support Frank.

    GET IT INTO YOUR HEADS, JERICHO ONLY WORKED IN YOUR MINDS. DAQUWAWA knows that himself and so does RUM, Baledrokadroka and Daunitutu.
