Regime turns to propaganda to silence condemnation of prisoner brutality

Easy peasy: shots Bainimarama with kids. pic MINFO
Pictures that show how wrong things continue to be in Fiji.

While the regime has tried to justify its use of violence against the five Naboro escapees, the media has settled for easy photos of the illegal prime minister with schoolchildren, instead of having a crack at the big story.

A huge contingent trailed Frank Bainimarama at one of the Suva schools taking part in the new e-ticketing scheme, but showed little vigour in nailing the dramatic details of the escapee story, let alone the unjustified torture and beatings meted out to all five prisoners by the RFMF and police.

It has been left to the blogs and NGO Coalition Chairperson, Shamima Ali, to squirrel out the information and challenge the lies.

Ali has publicly questioned the involvement of the military in the hunt for the men and denounced the violence used in recapturing them citing, the breach of human rights under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Typically, the regime has turned to propaganda to defend the indefensible with Ministry of Information spokesperson, Sharon Smith-Johns, claiming Ali 'is out touch with the plight and welfare of women in Fiji.'

Smith-Johns reckons there was widespread fear among women while the prisoners were loose and that female bank tellers were 'traumatized' by last week's armed robbery.

She says 'all the women in Fiji, especially in Suva, appreciated the assistance provided by the police except Ali and her politics.' 

The NGO leader countered with the reminder that the issue of safety for women in Fiji is not new. 
 
Naivalurua: 'Reasonable' force was used. pic FBC
The Police Commissioner, Iowane Naivalurua, has finally fronted, too, this morning to defend the action of officers claiming they had to use reasonable force to subdue 'the fugitives'. 

“In this particular case it was not peaceful situation so as such we needed to be prepared to achieve the mission. Achieving the mission, the mission was simple the mission was simply to recapture. In the process of recapture there things we must do.”

Naivalurua told FBC the public must appreciate the situation they had on their hands.

“This is the other scenario if people expect us to go in with a Tabua and Sevusevu that would not have happened we all know that. They have terrorized the country for a week and the appropriate plans and actions were put into place and as such they had to carry out the mission.”

It remains to be seen just what the prisoners did, as inconsistencies have already started to appear in the coverage of their break out and recapture. 
One fact already established is that a key Chinese delegation was in the country last week and the regime was desperate to keep the news of the runaway prisoners and the messy police response contained.

But while Bainimarama and co were sipping red wine with fake cherry blossom trees as a backdrop, soldiers and police were being outwitted by the escapees sparking an ugly campaign of revenge. 

Editor's Note at 11:40am:  In a statement released just a few minutes ago, the UPP Leader Mick Beddoes says it is Sharon Smith Johns is who is out of touch with reality, not Shamima Ali and attacking Shamima Ali for her statements on the issue of ‘excessive force’ does not absolve the authorities from its responsibilities in the matter.

Beddoes says it is the Police and Prisons departments who are responsible for keeping prisoners in jail, so it is the police and prisons who must take responsibility for the ‘escape’ and it the Police and Prisons department who are responsible for the recapturing the escapees.


"If the Police had seen fit to abrogate its responsibility to the military, then they must explain to the people why they felt this was necessary?


"What happened, how did they escape in the first place, which official authorized the level of force to be used in their recapture? Why was the military roped into what is essentially a police and prisons area of responsibility, these are the questions people are asking and these are the questions Smith-Johns needs to answer without distorting the ‘truth’ with deflective attacks on people like Shamima Ali.



"Everyone citizen, despite his or her station in life, has a right to life, and must not be arbitrarily deprived of life, our 1997 constitution provides for this under the Bill of Rights.


"Sec 25 (1) says, every citizen has the right to freedom from torture of any kind, whether physical, mental or emotional, and from cruel, inhumane, degrading or disproportionately severe treatment or punishment’ this includes prisoners or escaped prisoners."


Beddoes says he does not condone their alleged actions since escaping, and sympathizes with those people who have been traumatized by their alleged actions, but 'angry as one might be against the escapees, and the alleged violent actions they conducted, we cannot and must not forfeit our sense of humanity because they are human beings too and they have the same rights as the rest of us.'


"For the authorities to have had to resort to such excessive force to recapture the handful of escapees, even when the authorities would have had a huge advantage in terms of manpower, weapons and other resources at their disposal, compared to the relatively lightly armed escapees, says more about the authorities inability to deal with such situations despite their advantage, then it does about threat that the escapees really posed at the time of recapture?"

  1. Hey, all you hypocrites who defend the army's abuse of the escaped convicts on the basis of what their victims went through, why don't you extend the same principle to the rest of Fiji? Fiji is the victim of the army's crimes -- crimes even worse than any of those committed by these convicts. 

    Think about it. Bainimarama is a sadistic murderer, torturer, arsonist, rapist and traitor. But where is your sense of moral outrage THERE?

    When it comes to the law, nobody should get a free pass, least of all traitors.

  3. Beating inquiry

    Nasik Swami
    Thursday, September 27, 2012

    AN INVESTIGATION will be conducted to determine whether or not excessive force was used during the arrest of the five prison escapees

    Police have confirmed their officers would be investigated if they did use excessive force.

    Ministry of Information permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns told this newspaper they would determine the facts of the matter before they issued a final statement.

    "At the moment, there have been a lot of speculation that there was excessive force used," Ms Smith-Johns said.

    "We need to investigate the circumstances whether excessive or reasonable force was used," she said.

    Amid those speculations was a posting on the popular social networking site facebook by Suva lawyer Rajendra Chaudhry who said "a friend just called to tell me that the fifth escapee, Isoa Waqa, was brought to Colonial War Memorial Hospital wrapped in a tarpaulin and with blood dripping from the tarpaulin".

    "We need to get rid of all speculations and investigate the fact," Ms Smith-Johns said.

    "Police and the military used all their resources to recapture the escapees. We are in the process of investigating. The escapees were resisting arrest, they were armed," she said.

    When contacted yesterday, the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces preferred not to comment and referred all questions to police.

    Chief of operations Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said he would not go against the State's comment but said reasonable force was used during the arrest "and all other things will be investigated".

    "Our main priority was that we needed to take them to court, which is a normal thing. It is not the first time that reasonable force was used on escapees," ACP Tudravu said.

    "Police are not allowed to use excessive force. Should they (activists) have any complaints, they should contact us.

    "People are commenting and talking a lot. But they don't know what police officers faced when they stand on the ground. The escapees resisted arrest and they were armed. Our officers were also injured during the arrest," he said.

    "As law enforcers, we are also subject to investigations.

    "We support human rights, and if we did anything wrong, we should be investigated. We are also human beings and we understand what is coming from the families and the people. They should understand that the prisoners were dangerous.

    "I'm telling members of the public that an investigation will be conducted on us if we had used excessive force," he added.

    The five escapees, four caught last Monday at Draunibota in Suva and the fifth caught at Laqere on Tuesday morning.

    The case of the four accused was called before the Suva Magistrates Court on Monday. They were not present because they were still in hospital and were unfit to attend court.

    Their case has been adjourned to October 1 for review of their health status, and the case has also been transferred to the High Court.

  4. Fiji's press is afraid to report anything that isn't a good news story.

    In the New Fiji, that doesn't leave a lot to report.

    ReplyDelete
  5. So, the police say they will investigate whether any of their officers used excessive force. But who will investigate the army? According to most reports, it was the army who apprehended the escapees first.

    The Fiji Police never do anything to uphold the law against Fiji's lawless military.

    And there, my friends, is the crux of Fiji's problems!

  10. Police were supposed to have it hand but the intel officer who got the tip from a taxi driver ran off with it to the RFMF instead of telling his team. Don't know why but an inquiry is underway. From what I've heard the police have only been allowed to front just for show and big changes are on the way. Propaganda as they say or spindoctoring.

    Government has already shown it won't tolerate 'civil disbobdience' so its reaction is not surprising. The stuff about the beatings and the rifles being shoved up butts is not new either but what's fresh and a worry to Bai and gang is how much publicity the thrashings soldiers gave Isoa Waqa and mates is getting. It just doesn't look good for the New Fij. Then we've got the anti-Naivulurua gang rubbing their hands that this is the end of him and the return of Esala Teleni.

  16. Honorable attempts to define “Reasonable force” may be as fluid as some Video referees verdict..

    Many moons ago while resident of Veisari, it is not uncommon to see tracker dogs and frustrated and tired Police and Prison officers coming down the ridge behind our home “hunting” for escaped Prisoners.One look and you could guess that the volatility of “reasonable force” is sure to be unleashed and pity the hunted.

    We may never be able to really qualify and quantify “Reasonable force”. Of course, it is even harder for those who sit in air condition offices and pushing their agenda to justify their salary. They have no idea…may be best in the next Prison break they clad themselves with wet soaked boots, baton, led by a persistent hunting dog on a 18 hours hunt on rough terrain..just may be they will then start to fathom the contrast between a walk in the park and hunt for a fugitive are totally different human phenomenon.

    Of course, we all condemn “excessive Force”..but who is gonna give us a realist barometer to measure “force”..’Reasonable Force” is “legal force”..… mmm…in some jurisdictions enjoy sending electrical voltage through a fugitive, and kicks and punches as long as with no visible injury is within their definition of reasonable force…but should the fugitive be armed and rebel arrest by counter attacking then the hunters lifts the “reasonableness of the force”..or should they wait for a moral and legal inspector to first measure the reasonableness before execution of the “reasonable force”….but may be the conscience of the hunter and the hunted be the ultimate referee in this cat and mouse game..maybe…

    But should not the Prime Minister’s personal plea to the reaming fugitive to own up and the fugitive subsequent voluntary arrest by Police be enough immunity from “reasonable force” ?...or maybe next time a fugitive surrender under the glairing light of TV crew and flash of jornos…that may just be very “reasonable” do you think?

  19. THE NGO Coalition on Human Rights is calling for an investigation in light of the alleged brutality used against recent prison escapees.

    The coalition is citing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), stating that rights of each individual must be respected.

    Coaliition chair Shamima Ali said the alleged beatings breached human rights

    “The alleged beating of the escapees is a gross violation of human rights. The rights of all people should be recognised regardless of who they are,” she said.

    “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights applies to every single person and clearly states that everyone has the right to a fair, independent and public trial (Article 10).

    “And that torture, cruelty and degrading treatment or punishment are not allowed (Article 5).”

  20. The discussion and debate on 'Reasonable force' is very subjective and one that will always be given varying views.

    Perhaps it is easier to consider it as 'Necessary force' in these questionable situations.

    If your attacker is pointing a gun at your head it is both reasonable and necessary for you to shoot him first.

    In any situation such as an attacker using a weapon or a means of force on you, you have to use a greater force or a more calculated move to overpower them.

    Whatever, it is the resisting person that has the choice generally as to how much force is 'necessary' to apprehend him with due regard to safety of all.

    Any force or action above what is 'necessary' is then clearly unreasonable.

    So simply, reasonable force is that which is necessary.

    Human rights come with resposibility and sadly Fiji is far far away from it. It's populus,especially the Itaukie do not understand the meaning of democracy as they have been taught to follows chiefs and church leaders' sermons and orders for past hundreds of years. They have lost the ability to think and act reasonably by themselves. That's the reason so many are ending up in jails. The church leaders and chiefs have been selfserving thus the itaukies are left in limbo as to what is right and what is wrong.My advise to them is learn from Fijian indians and start thinking and believing inyourself and your capabilities, donot despise Indians for their progress because they have broken away from the cycle of being led by others.They can even defy their parents if they feel the advise given to them is not progressive.

  23. Talk about Bau Politics and Vere Vakabau (Liumuri), it is indeed not surprising that whilst the whole nations attention was on the prison escapees, three high chiefs of from Viwa (Bau) were busy visiting all villages in the Tikina ko Bau soliciting support for the illegal Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

    These group led by one Isoa Kamarusi visited all villagers if the Tikina ko Bau. They made presentation to all these villages asking their chiefs and people to stand by Bainimarama's Road Map to 2014. Some villagers have them recorded on mobile phones their speeches declaring the move by Bainimarama is best for the people of Fiji especially 'i Taukei's.

    It is understood that these chiefs had actually received $15,000 funding from UNDP to carry out a program on Constitutional awareness but instead used used it for their own political objectives. We have records of their speeches declaring the SDL Party to be not good for the people of Bau. Their suggestion was for Bau to form a new political party and stand behind Bainimarama.

Satan or Lucifier is at work.First they robbed the bank etc,etc.As for humans beings we are prone to remember the bad side of things rather than the positive side.Anyone who support the violence used to capture the prisoners cannot see beyond their nose.These prisoners donot choose to be in prison.Some of these people are there because of the social impact affecting them individually or their surroundings.Some come from broken homes,poor families,negelected and etc,etc.I believe that most of us come through our youths ages and we are so vulnerale to temptations and we are fortunatethat some of our wrong doings were not found by the police.How can some people reckons that these prisoners deserved these type of penalty by our policemen?.I believe that those people (public) who are being traumatised by these prisoners shoild be helped by the IG social department and the bank are resposible for their employee.Now we are shifting the blame on to the prisoners and leave the goverment who should be held resposible for all these saga.Common guys lets pick on the goverment of the day rather than picking the prisoners as the culprit

  26. No matter which way you look at it, shoving a gun in somebody's rectum for 15 minutes is totally inappropriate.
    In fact it is a total abuse of police powers and a criminal act.

    Bainimarama commited the worst crime in any country and that is Treason, should we apprehend him and shove a gun up his arse for 15 minutes?
    Is that appropriate use of Police powers, Sharon?

    You should try it in Australia and see what happens to you?

    "Police officers have a common goal, and that is to combat all sorts of crime."

    Those were the words of Minister for National Security and Defence Joketani Cokanasiga while addressing family members and members of the diplomatic corp at the Police Special Response Unit in Narere on Police Remembrance Day this morning.

    Cokanasiga said that police work is about service and keeping the community safe at all times and as time moves on, it will be even harder as they will be involved with new and emerging crimes.

    He challenged all police officers to carry out their duty well.

    Meanwhile it was a sad morning for Mereseini Tagicakibau, the mother of the late Luisa Tagicakibau who passed away while on duty last year.

    Tagicakibau said that her daughter had just turned 21 and was called to rest in November last year.

    16 police officers died while in service in the past 12 months.

    The services were held at Labasa, Lautoka and Suva this morning.

Now across on Bau island, the chiefs there were not too happy that these upstarts should tell them, cannibalism was evil. We..ll isn't it ironic, that the descendants of those Viwa chiefs, should be supporting this regime and in their message, a repeat of their past, telling all of Bau, to support this nobody? A lesson to learn is, God does work in many, many strange ways and his choice of people to do his work, is never the choice of the people for this world that we live in, after all, is Satan's domain.

    Police Commissioner, Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua has today said that people should understand that it was a volatile situation when the officers tried to recapture the escape prisoners last week.

    He has said that he stands by the officers involved in the joint operation and they followed procedures on the ground to ensure the hardened criminals were apprehended.

    Commissioner Naivalurua said that it was not a peaceful situation as the prisoners resisted arrest and he stands by the people who captured them.

    He said the officers used reasonable force based on the circumstances.

    The Police Commissioner earlier stressed that they were not dealing with people who would have received a tabua or sevusevu and surrendered themselves.

    He said that only those in the frontline know what occurred and the level of resistance by the prisoners.

  49. Volatile situation !!!----my foot !!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Prisoners have escaped in the past and will continue to escape in future; their recapture will always be volatile.

    The use of force has been debated endlessly but most are missing the point, including Naivalurua.

    Reasonable force should be applied to achieve an objective. In this case the recapture of 4 prisoners whose location was known.

    How many officers were part of the raiding party? Sure the prisoners may have been armed with cane knives and whatnot.

    Sheer numbers however dictates that the prisoners would have been neutralized with minimum force. The only force required is that to secure them (handcuffed) and take away.

    That however is contrary to the injuries sustained which shows that maximum and unreasonable force was used.

    People in the know will understand what I am talking about.

    In spite of what Meo is saying officers are in the job because they wanted to do it at a price (salary). Searching for escaped prisoners is part of the deal, the dangers and fatigue that comes with it is part of the deal, as well as the use of reasonable force when required.

    The use of unreasonable force is not part of the deal and when it happens the law should be allowed to run its course just it does with escaped prisoners.

    What has happened to the ideal of no one is above the law?

  54. Semi meow, reasonable force doesn't end up with the victim in hospital. What planet you from you senile asshole? Reasonable force would mean the offender would not be able to resist or retaliate. Shoving a rifle up the escapee's ass isn't reasonable force, it's torture and abuse. Of course these prisoners broke the law by escaping from custody, and it happens in every country. What these army criminals did was similar to what some people did to Gaddafi, and we all know who he was. These prisoners are not dictators, your friend Bocimarama is.

    Perhaps the army should include shoving rifles up asses in their training manual.

  56. What authourity do you have to talk for the women of Fiji Sharon, you neo-colonialist? Shamima has earned her stripes and has a significant constituency of women supporting her. An outsider like you will never know what that means.Talking to a few women does not make you an expert on Fiji women. You could not represent the critical mass of Fiji women, no matter how many years you live in Fiji. You are the mouthpiece of your military masters, tnat is all you will ever be in this country. Have some humulity and dont compare yourself to Shamima. She is way above your league.

  57. Sharon will peddle whatever shit Aiyaz puts in front of her, she doesn't have the capacity to think for herself or to speak the truth.
    I suspect the real reason the Regime is frightened of escaped prisoners, is the possibility that more will escape, if only to challenge Frank and Co.
    If the illegal Police Commissioner gets the chop, does that mean Frank will throw him out as he did with Mara and Driti and others?
    The Regime has already scrapped the bottom of the barrel, they must have reached the smegma by now.

  58. Anonymous 2:41, aka Phylosophy, your misspellings give you away. We all know that you're sending in many of the silly pro-regime postings on this site. That includes the ones claiming that Jericho was a flop, even though every day brings confirmation that it frightened the dictatorship, with the Bainivore cancelling his UN trip, being treated for exhaustion purging the police, purging the military, etc.

    We also know that you're in the army. For example, every time you claim that 'we' know who you are reveals that you're working for the regime.

    Don't your psyops people give you any training? Or is it that you weren't paying attention?

    Not very bright, are you?

    You're probably also one of the lackeys the regime used to text in support for Baini during the Vodafone personality contest.

    By the way, you're posting to a pro-democracy website. Guess who knows your IP address and web server?

    That's right, 'we know who you are'.

  59. The brutality against the escaped inmates was totally unnecessary. So was the search for them, and so were any injuries incurred in their capture.

    The escapees were hiding on a small island. They easily could have been apprehended while rowing back to shore.

  60. Well, I'm kinda sorry I didn't join in Operation Jericho. I should have put on my general's uniform one more time just to watch it get a rise out of the regime.

    Jericho didn't bring down the walls around Suva, but it did show just how nearly unhinged Bainimarama had become. The poor slob now needs to check into St. Giles. He can't check into CWMH -- it's too over-crowded with beating victims.

    It's not that easy being dictator. Take it from one who knows.

  62. Let's not read too much into Bainimarama's exhaustion and hallucinations. They're not necessarily all caused by his fear of Jericho. Some might be a psychotic reaction to the drugs he's been taking to avoid the Transitory Ischemic Attacks that have caused his headaches, slurred speech, etc. The Commander is a sick man.

  68. This illegal regime is desperate.
    It abuses every kind of power and opportunity that it can get hold of.

    From the start it abused its responsibility to provide security for the country, by being the great enemy of the nation.

    Whatever position in government it occupied was through the use of abusing procedures, abusing funds, abusing force, abusive statements, and abusive decisions.

    The search for escaped prisoners is always the role of the police wherever and whenever it happens, since when had the army been given the role. Again it is an abuse of responsibility and overstepping of duties.

    The army wants to do it ALL, it wants to lead, it wants prosecute, it wants punish, it wants to be transparent, it also wants to corrupt, it wants to torture, it also wants to contradict itself, and it is everywhere while it is really nowhere, because they are circling through their own cycle, yes the famous COUP CYCLE, spiraling everyone down to hopelessness and bankruptcy!!!!

    People jumped in to join the regime, but most have since jumped out, and the ones that are hanging in are desperately looking for a safe way out while torturing those that are in their way.
    Abuse seems to be rampant in Fiji lately, ever wondered why? because it all started when the army abandoned its role to assume and abuse other roles.

  72. I agree with comments by Ratu Vore on 5.33 p.m of 28/9.Even though I do not condone on the terrorising and robbing of citizens of our country by the escapees if it is true as claimed in our dailies recently. But how on earth can 5 prisoners resist arrest when they are confronted with an armed military squad,fully equiped police counter reaction squad,the dog units of police and corrections department.For Naivalurua to believe and say that the situation at the front line was volatile is totally bullshit and is trying to manipulate the minds of the members of the public to justify their actions.They are suppose to be trained proffessional people and their job is to apprehend and bring the escappees to justice and let them face their action in court.We shall not be overriden by emotions.Now they have ruined the hard work done by corrections in trying to change the lives of those in prisons meaning "Yellow Ribbon,"Civic Pride and other rehab programs.Sharon Smith and Tuidravu don't try to be a smart ass when you don't know what you talking about coz you never had an experience of a frontline situation is like.These prisoners will some day return to the society,do we want change or make them worse.My advice to Naivalurua is change the name of your counter reaction squad back to what it used to be (i.e) Police Tactical Unit,it's more appropriate and rellevant to police work whilst the counter reaction is more like we are in a war zone and we will continue to see these scenerios from now and then if you don't change the name.Remember, you are not in the military any more.

  74. So the army is back in the news for torturing its prisoners, possibly at Bainimarama's behest. In the meanwhile, the United States is weighing whether to pull the plug on Fijian jobs because of the regime's shortsighted and anti-labour Essential Services Decree. In the midst of all this, I have to wonder again how it is now possible for Colonel Sitiveni Qiliho to serve as a monitor with the United Nations in Syria, given his egregious record of human rights abuses in Fiji? 

    Has Washington abandoned its commitment to preclude RFMF participation in new peacekeeping missions? Or does it pretend that this is somehow not a new mission or define this as other than peacekeeping? Either way seems pretty dishonest to me.

    More specifically, how is it possible for someone like Qiliho to pass through the Americans' 'Leahy vetting' process designed to weed out human rights abusers?

    Washington wants the dictator removed from Damascus but is still willing to work with the dictator in Suva. Okay, we've got that. But it makes as little sense to send Qiliho to Damascus as it would to send one of Bashar Assad's chief thugs to monitor the human rights situation in Fiji.

  75. We have for a very long while now accepted that many from all side of Fiji’s political spectrum, for now, prefer to remain anonymous. Indeed, many of their varied contributions are sane, logical and worthy of a decent reply to concur or rebut.
    What the majority of us cannot understand, though is those with dual or multiply personalities…like the same stinking rotten filthy mouth that spews in this esteemed column is exactly the same slimy wet mouth fronted with smelly lips that kisses their respective partners, and worse of all their innocent lovely children….how do they leave with themselves..uh..shall we ask, how do they live with their many personas.
    Why not we be the same person who visit this esteemed column, and be able to repeat what we write here in our church, mosque, temple..but most importantly we could repeat what we say here at the dinner table with our family..if we are reluctant to do so, then….even the label “coward” and low down frightened rabbit may be too honorable to pin to your nameless and faceless self….
    Oh..where were we?..oh yes…as we suggested earlier ..solution is that in future…immunity from “reasonable force” should be afforded to fugitives immediately after the Prime Minister plea to voluntarily show up….better still to be brought in by parents, close relatives, religious leaders or under glaring media….. uh..maybe these faceless and nameless cyber thugs wanna do the same?..may be after election 2014??...and take that cushion away from behind you!

  76. Fiji media's lack of coverage of what is newsworthy, whilst giving fawning coverage to the regime, leads me to recall part of what a great Fijian once wrote about our press:

    "'Media responsibility', as used by the regime and its supporters, is a euphemism for propagandising on behalf of the regime. If you're 'responsible', you print what the regime wants. If you're 'irresponsible', you print something that the regime doesn't want published, regardless of whether it is true.

    "Media do need to be more responsible. In most free countries, that is achieved through libel laws, peer review, and high standards of journalistic ethics. 

    "In Fiji, those who want to follow events have little choice but to turn to blogs. Yes, blogs are notoriously poor sources of information, but they're more reliable than Fiji's newspapers. What does that tell you about the current health of Fiji's press?

    "Indeed, were this the first Easter Sunday, I would expect that only bloggers would have reported the Resurrrection. The Fiji Sun would have printed the guards' version of events exclusively, whilst the Fiji Times would merely have made passing mention of the earthquake."

    Sad, but ever so true!

  78. An extra $5 million was paid by the Government because of the bus ticket abuse, according to the Minister for Public Works and Transport, Captain (Navy) Timoci Natuva.
    He said Government had budgeted $12m for fare tickets to cater for 100,000 students nationwide.
    These students had different modes of transports as some used buses, carriers and some travelled by boats.
    “We have to stop this abuse,” Captain Natuva said.
    “And to stop this, Government introduced the e-ticketing system.”
    The Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama was at Draiba Primary School yesterday to assess the effectiveness of the e-ticketing system.
    He was briefed by the chief executive of the Land Transport Authority (LTA), Naisa Tuinaceva.
    Mr Tuinaceva said the Prime Minister was happy with the progress of the project.
    He said LTA had approved two companies – Telecom Fiji Limited and Foneology to provide e-ticketing machines.
    The LTA chief said e-ticketing had started in all government subsidised schools and they had been given a timeline to work on.
    “By the end of October, all students in the Central Division will be using cards. By the end of the year all schools will be using the card system,” Mr Tuinaceva said.
    “By April next year, a decree will be published for all who travel by bus to have cards.”
    He said they were working in phases and he applauded the support of the bus operators.
    Mr Tuinaceva said the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) would have records of all transactions when passengers use their cards.
    “There is no room for cheating and Government will collect its correct dues from all bus companies.”
    Mr Tuinaceva said bus operators would benefit from the new system and some had projected a 15 to 20 per cent profit.

  82. To Kai Bau Dinadina,about Viwa Chief (UNDP Fund)If I remembered correctly during the begingning of the coup couple of the BLV lawyers were uprehended by the soldiers and taken up to the military camp and one of them was Mr Komaisavai.People were being scared to be taken up there because most of them came back with black eyes and lost the confidence of fighting the military.Mr Komaisavai was also taken up there but was not treated like the others....why?....Mr Komaisavai is the decendant of the chief of Viwa and also related to the Bainimarama's from thier blood ties from Soso Bau.So complicated isn't it.So the vere vaka Bau really thriving and well alive amongst the Bauans including Bainimarama.... so people must watch out for this.Again the name Kamarusi who is he?......To concludeand may I inform you Kai Bau Dinadina that the Viwa Chief's had a very big influence on the Bau Chiefs especially the Cakobau's because of their alliaces and blood ties.So if your statement about the Viwa Chief going around the Tikina of Bau asking for their favour to vote Bainimarama than the Cakobaus will be at the background and only time will you see that theyll emerge to the lime light.Watch the space if your statement is true.Very confusing indeed.

  89. Professor Wadan Narsey has been one of those putting pen to paper as a letter to to editor. Just saw this on Facebook somewhere and thought it has some good points.



    Violence against escaped prisoners

    Many letters have been written to the Editor, attacking Shamima Ali's call for the protection of the human rights of prisoners, while the police have also responded defending their actions.

    It is understandable for decent law-abiding citizens to not care how prisoners are treated. We all know of innocent people who have been robbed, physically and mentally traumatized, by criminal elements, without any compensation, or contrition from criminals.

    Neither is there much compensation or thought for officers who are injured in the call of duty, while trying to apprehend escaped criminals.

    Even though it is hard to define what constitutes "reasonable force" the police (and the army) also need to ensure that apprehending officers do not take the law into their own hands, by becoming prosecutors, judge and jury.

    We sympathise with the Police Force who come under huge pressure whenever prisoners escape, when we all know that it is society which ultimately creates the criminals and the crimes, which we then demand the Police Force deal with.

    But a just society has to ensure that escaped prisoners, however badly they may have treated society, are also given a fair trial by our judiciary, and suitably punished if they are found guilty, but according to law.

    Prisoners also have human rights and they also have loved ones, who are often filled with despair and shame at the crimes that their family members commit.

    The Police Commissioner and the Commander of the Military Forces would be protecting the integrity and humanity of their own forces if they conveyed a strong message to their apprehending officers: please do not lose control of your emotions, do not take the law into your own hands, when apprehending escaped prisoners. Leave that to the courts.

    The condemning public might think more about the message and not shoot the messenger, Shamima Ali, who has been a brave Commissioner for Human Rights of all people in Fiji, prisoners or otherwise.

    However much pain escaped prisoners may cause us (and they surely do), for us deny their human rights to justice according to the Fiji laws, is to become inhuman ourselves.

  98. That UNDP viwa chiefs are actually cowards. Can Bau really stand when its been all time down?

    Can it really rise when its always falling?

    Can viwa be really somehting when it is actually a nothing

    can that komaisavai at east for once say some truth when all he utters are mostly lies and boastful lies..trying to be a chief of viwa when infact he is just one of the small ones there

    viwa has its real chief and certainly not that lying boastful komaisavai

    the real chiefs of viwa are humble people not the small chief of that komaisavai....he is a no one in the viwa chiefly family

  100. Anon says to Kai Bau, Kai Bau Dinadina and Anon 8:08pm...........What a bunch of nobodies. You guys try to soil the name of Komoaisavai and speak of Bau and Viwa but who are you. Nobody knows who the hell you are. Your just a bunch of lamu sona bloggers on this site who cant speak up or man up to the Komaisavai Family or the Cakobau Family. You are like chiefs always speak off, veivakatuturaga tagi vaka KAISI BOKALA. Thats all you are KAISI BOKALA. You come from nothing and you are nothing. Roko Tui Viwa was a part of Fiji History and the Komaisavai family is a part of the Roko Tui Viwa Family. KEVEKA KO TAMATA MACAWA, KO NA MACAWA TU GA. KUA NI VAKAYAGATAKA NA BLOG SITE OQO MOKO YAVALATA NA VANUA dou yavu LUVENI KAWA CA

My comments was my own opinion and I did not in anyway show any derespect as stated by you.But anyway put down your name like Semi Meo if you want to take it further from here but it will only a disgrace for you and your family if you do that.
