Fiji's self-appointed PM and G77 chair calls Aussie national a 'fucked up priest'

Bainimarama is mouthing niceties in New York where he is chairing the G77 forum but back home where people really know what he's like, it's been revealed he abused former Wages Council chair, Father Barr, via text. One of his text messages was 'Fuck U arsehole'

 

A SURPRISING DAY IN MY LIFE

On the 8th January 2013 The Fiji Sun published I short letter I had sent in to them. The letter noted that a change was to be expected in the Fiji Flag to represent changed realities in Fiji. With tongue in cheek, I asked: “Is the rumour true that the Union Jack is going to be replaced with a small version of the Chinese flag to show that our old allegiance to Britain is being replaced with a new allegiance to China?”

On the morning of the 10th January I was at my desk at the PCN Office when the phone rang and someone who said he was a Colonel in the Prime Minister’s Office asked if this was my number. I said it was and he hung up. 

A few minutes later I received a call from the Prime Minister. I greeted him and wished him a happy New Year. Then in a very angry voice he said that I should apologise to the people of Fiji for my letter concerning the Fijian flag in the newspaper. I said that I thought it expressed a real concern with a touch of joking humour.

The PM said it was irresponsible coming from a recognised leader in the community. He stated he was not a Catholic but a Methodist. 

He then called me “a fucked up priest” and said I had become anti-government. He said he used to try and help me but would do so no longer. I said I would be prepared to come and speak with him. Instead he repeated I was a “fucked up priest”, threw in a few swear words, told me to go back to where I came from and put down the phone. 



His tone was angry and really over the top.

Our Director (Semiti Qalowasa) and Assistant Director (Savu Tawake) were in the room and were able to pick up most of the angry statements of the Prime Minister. They were rather shocked and remarked that the words about China must have hit a sore spot.

A few minutes later there was a text message on the phone from the Prime Minister which read: “I think you owe the people of Fiji an apology for your childish comments. You give all Catholic priests a bad name.” 

It seemed more of a calm message. I replied saying I was sorry if he was upset by my letter and I apologise. However many people were concerned about the influx of Chinese into Fiji. I said I would always be happy to meet with you and discuss issues. I am not anti-government but disappointed with some developments.

I was about to go to lunch when another text message arrived saying: “Fuck U arsehole. Stay well away from me.” I texted back: “Thank you Sir for the nice words. If you want me to apologise I will do as you wish.”

As I was having lunch another text arrived: “Start saying your goodbyes Father Kevin James Barr, Australian national, work permit as a missionary, expiry date for permit 31/12/2013.” 

I did not reply. Then came the final text: “Go and be a missionary in China”.

I laughed as there was a touch of humour there.

When I returned home about 4.15 there was an apologetic call from the Ministry of Housing saying they had been directed by government to withdraw my membership as a Member of the Housing Authority and Public Rental Board and that a letter would soon be delivered to me on that issue. 

In some ways I was expecting this vindictive reaction. I also suspect that others apart from the PM were involved. The Land Force Commander is noted for his coarse language and the AG for his vindictiveness.

What surprised me was not only the coarse language used by the Prime Minister but his over-the-top angry and uncontrolled reaction. I have heard that he has treated others in a similar way and aims to intimidate.

Those who heard of the above exchanges were shocked and very concerned that the Prime Minister could act in this way. 

They were also concerned for me. I do not intend to be intimidated.

(Fr Kevin J. Barr)

if those comments made by the illegal PM to the coup apologist Kevin Barr are true then the priest should take it as a MAN and absorbed in his heart like a true church leader....I remind the priest that WE, the respected ordinary people of Fiji did not ask him to join the illegal regime in the first place....Kevin Barr should learn to understand the rights & wrongs in the first place before joining and singing praising to the illegal regime...Kevin Barr deserves the treatment because of his earlier standing on regime....I sympathize with the way you had been treated by VB Kevin but please learn to stand-up as true humble Christian leaders to condemn illegal/treason acts....

Cry The Beloved Country
If the country's Prime Minister can use the four letter word to abuse a respected padre imagine what he can do to ordinary citizens?
The conduct is grossly unbecoming of a Prime Minister.
But Frank Bainimarama can be excused because he is not a real Prime Minister. He is a man who appointed himself Prime Minister after overthrowing the Government of Fiji and ousting the lawful Prime Minister.
The man is a thug in military uniform. His conduct is quite becoming of him. Even his military mates know that!!
Father Barr I feel sad that you suffered such indignity at the hands of a lout who pretends to be fiji's national leader!
Shame on the scoundrel!

UN Mr Moon Demands Democratic Road towards Fiji Election

Ban presses Fiji leader on constitution

16:13 Wed Jan 16 2013
by
AAP

UN chief Ban Ki-moon has demanded that Fiji's military rulers restore "legitimate" government and adopt a democratic constitution.

Ban met with the Pacific country's Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, who seized power in a 2006 coup, on the sidelines of ceremonies to mark Fiji becoming head of the Group of 77 developing states.

Bainimarama has promised to hold elections in 2014 after a new constitution is adopted but this month rejected a draft version prepared by an academic panel and said his government would draw up its own version.

"The secretary general emphasised the need for Fiji to restore legitimate government and constitutional order as soon as possible," said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.

"He reiterated his expectation that the process leading to the adoption of a new constitution in Fiji will be transparent, participatory and democratic, in line with internationally recognised principles," the spokesman added.

Though Bainimarama has rejected a draft version drawn up by a panel led by Kenyan academic Yash Ghai, he has still committed to finishing a new version by September 2014 so elections can be held.

Fiji is taking over the G77 group for one year.

The group is now made up of 131 countries, including China, which make up the biggest bloc of developing countries at the UN.

Ban and the Fiji prime minister also discussed sustainable development, UN development goals and a looming summit of small island states.

FTUC awaiting word on US hearing

17:32 Today

Taken from/By: FBC News
Report by: Elenoa Turagaiviu

The Fiji Trades Union Congress is still awaiting word from US authorities on the outcome of the hearing on their attempt to get Fiji removed from the United States Generalized System of Preference trade list.

FTUC General Secretary Felix Anthony says it will take awhile before a decision is made.

That process actually takes time. They just had the US elections and all that so I think that’s delayed it a bit further. It takes a few months before they come out. So, we’ll just have to patiently wait.

The U.S. Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) Scheme is a program designed to promote economic growth in the developing world by providing preferential duty free entry for up to 5,000 products imported by the U.S.

If Fiji is suspended from trading with the US under the scheme, it will affect eight per cent of the population and 15,000 jobs could be lost among 39 companies that export products using this preference

Dear Kevin,
This is where we separate wisdom from knowledge.

You may have been a Catholic Priest but you lack wisdom in the first place by blindly sleeping with VB.

I always maintain that anything that begins with an evil intention will always use brutal and evil methods in pursuing their agendas.

Now you are just like a cry baby trying to get sympathy form all of us. You join VB by your own decision NO BODY FORCED YOU MATE!

Now be a MAN like Vualono from New Methodist always said. I therefore suggest that you renounce Catholicism and join Atu's New Methodist.

VB will be very happy to hear this Kevin.

Let us the pro-democracy people not adopt the way of the tyrant and his henchmen and become VINDICTIVE towards Fr Kevin Barr. Yes Fr Barr did make the mistake - the very serious mistake - of putting his trust in Frank the usurper. Many other good men and women did as well.
Most of these good men and women did not join the bandwagon of the usurpers so that they could profit by it. They sincerely believed in the project of building a better Fiji. THEY WERE WRONG. The usurpers were not about that. Their motive was different.They grabbed power to safe their hide.And are now doing everything to ensure that.They intend to hold onto power. And anybody who is seen to not support them are their enemies. And their military mentality kicks in and they go after the enemy. Now Fr Barr too is seen as an enemy.
This is Fr Barr's hour of need. Let us show him empathy. Let us be different from the tyrant we oppose.

In support of Fr. Barr said...

Whatever you say about Kevin, he is a decent man and only true friend of Fiji's poor. People support Qarase or hate FB based on ethnonationalism. People care a lot about politics but do not give a fuck about poor. Barr's suport for FB was based on how he could best help the poor. He was driven to FB's arms by an uncaring neo-capitalist Qarase government busy fulling its pockets. Barr thought it would be in the best interests of the poor. But it was from pot to frying pan - power has corrupted all Fiji leaders, Mara, Rabuka, Mahen, Qarase and FB, who is a real low-life like Khaiyum, busy sucking up the rich and creaming benefits.

The poor people of Fiji continue to suffer.

editor,
With reference to your caption 'Racial paradigm rules' (Letters 15/1) I should like to point out it doesn't. But it has been used as a convenient pretext by every coup maker in Fiji - including the current one Frank Bainimarama - to provide a cover for the real reason for the coups : A Power Grab!
In Bainimarama's case he had very good reasons to make a grab for power. The expatriate Australian Commission of Police in Fiji Andrew Hughes was about to nab him for extra judicial killing of soldiers under his command and for plotting to overthrow the lawful government of Fiji.
That is a good reason to takeover the country, isn't it?
The race thing thing is bullshit!
yours sincerely,

WARPED LOGIC
The following courtesy of Radio Fiji:

Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khiayum says, the new decree does not stop anyone from being part of a political party.
He says people have the option to either choose a party or a union.
(QUOTE ONE): “If I am for example the General Secretary of the Hotel and Catering a larger union and I am also the General Secretary of the new political party, come election time, if I want to create havoc in the economy, if I want to make the incumbent government look good or look bad, I may take various actions by my trade union hat, I may vile up my members to go on strike.”
He says political parties should not make excuses that the 28 day time frame is not enough for them to get signatures of five thousand and five people.
(QUOTE TWO): “5,005 signatures is 0.8 percent, if you have ten political parties going out and seeking or ten groups seeking out to register themselves as political parties, ten multiply by zero point eight is eight percent, so you still have ninety tow percent of the people who will not be signing up for registration of a political party, the number is not very large as a percentage of the total population.”
QUOTE ONE: Wouldn’t a trade unionist still be able to do what Khaiyum says WITHOUT having to be a General Secretary of a political party? This is more the reasoning of a child than a mature adult.
QUOTE TWO: It would be easy enough to obtain 5000 votes if there were no added requirement that specific figures be from the various divisions across the country. How does one obtain the stated number of signatures from the largely maritime Eastern Division within the given timeframe? For Khaiyum and Bainimarama that wouldn’t be a problem because they’ve already got access to the various government departments in those islands!!!!
Another “tongue in cheek” logic from Sayed Khaiyum on Radio Fiji yesterday: Political parties will have to have their accounts audited by auditors who are registered under the national umbrella body because “as we know, not all, but some auditors tend to cook the books”. Tongue-in-cheek because he obviously has first-hand experience with his Aunt Nur “cooking” he and Frank’s books. Pushing the accountability/transparency agenda, the regime wants everyone to be accountable yet, the regime leadership itself is exempt – a case of “Do what I TELL you, but don’t do as I do (because I’m more equal than you)”

Karavaki says to Father Kevin Barr....so whats wrong with China and chinese or influx of chinese into Fiji. Europeans had taken over Fiji, influenced the country and implemented a political system without due regard to the indeginous Fijian social, traditional and cultural system. In fact they were intent in wiping out the Fijian system and race. Fiji had an influx of Indians who at one time was more than half the population of indeginous Fijians and other races put together. Why is it that you as a Catholic Priest is very critical and prejudice yourself with your hypocritical comments. I suppose you dont deserve being abused by the leader of a country if it did happen but having said that, one cannot be critical of other races and at the same time pretend to champion multiracialism. What has happened to you Father Barr...Like the sayinig goes...if you live in a glass house you dont throw stones...

Ban Ki Moon should invite Frank Bainimarama to take over his position as UN Secretary-General when his term ends.

ANOTHER WARPED LOGIC
Courtesy of Fijivillage.com

Following statements by a number of parties and unionists who claim that they have been singled out to either be a union or a party executive, Sayed-Khaiyum said the new law will even affect Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama if he wants to be a party executive.

KHAIYUM: If the Prime Minister were an official of a political party he would then have to resign as the Commander of the RFMF. The rules are very clear. It applies to him also.

WHY WARPED? Because it is in his "public official" capacity that the PM (and the Ministers) is able to appoint people to boards, commissions, statutory bodies etc. And because as a recipient of public funds for payment of his services, like the civil servants, they are "public officials". It goes without saying that as Army Commander, Frank cannot join or hold office in a political party. But Frank is known to repeatedly insist that he is a "civilian Prime Minister" and, in that capacity, the Decree exempts him from the provisions that bar "public office holders" from joining or holding executive positions in a political party ( refer to Restrictions on public officers in a political party provision in the Decree - Section 3.)
They have the military might behind them -- why don't they, for once, be honest with the people of Fiji and say 'We intend to continue to hold leadership of the country, if not for the rest of our lifetime, at least for the foreseeable future".
AND WHY HAVEN'T THE MEDIA REPORTED THE EARLY RELEASE OF JOSEFA NATA OF GEORGE SPEIGHT FAME? Is the regime setting Nata and the Speight gang up as pawns in a strategy to further destabilise the country and give Frank the "reason" to place his roadmap on hold?
Please Fiji, wake up and realise you've allowed Frank to soil your bedsheets, and your inaction will only encourage him to continue doing so.

@Anonymous 9:02 This is not the time to pray.
This is the time to burn all properties belonging to Bai and his entourage.

You mentioned Goliath.
The Bible that I read says that David killed him with a stone.
Not by praying and fasting.

I think we can pray and fast and whatever but God is waiting for us to "fling the stone".

I very much doubt that Fr. Barr is looking for sympathy, I understand this account was actually meant for retired Archbishop Mataca and the Aust. HComm.


Seems to me that Barr is simply telling it like it is and for those of us who have never met him, let alone spoken to him, I for one believe entirely this story which is consistent with previous accounts of those who've been abused and threatened by the stupid dictator. I appreciate Fr. Barr's candidness and admission as one of those who got sucked in by the "CON" that the Fijian military has become quite adept at, since 1987.


I agree with your observation though regarding the squeaky quiet retired Archbishop Mataca who SHOULD issue a public statement (ASAP!) condemning the unwarranted outbursts of the tyrant and esp. the dictator's threat to not renewing Barr's work permit - as if that would make an ounce of difference to the work of the Catholic Archdiocese in Fiji!

God Bless Fiji.

Coup fourpointfive said...

Bula all,
Article posted below by Coup 4.5 is evident of what Frank Bainimarama & his legal advisor Khaiyum Aiyaz Saiyed resort to when things do not go their way.

We all know Fr Kevin Barr was very much aligned to Fiji's Diktator post 2006 coup. Why only Fr Barr knows. Like everyone else that joined Fr Barr and believed in what Bainimarama was doing have all fallen by the wayside. Somehting has gone awfully wrong.

Without boring you all with the same old story, one thing is for sure, Bainimarama is hungry for power and wants to hold on to it come hell or high waters. Anyone caught is belittling his plans or exposing him and his cohorts face the same nastiness that had been dished out to Fr Barr. Thats where they all end up or even worse they get budnled up to the Nabua Military Beating camp and get killed or get raped or bashed up. Thats the order of the day under this evil man Bainimarama.

Yet while this is happening some segment of the International Community still wants to play that Rational Do Positive Game and give this Fiji Diktator a platform to run riots and create havoc in an island nation that barely has a million population. In fact in the last count Fiji only had approx 890,057 [CIA]
https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/fj.html

When will be 'Enough is Enough' get really carved into these countries that are propping Bainimarama and his regime? When will those Fijian soldiers and policemen realise that the diktator is now following the very same path that Hitler followed. The only difference, Hitler is from Germany a much bigger Nation than a small island one in South Seas Island. But the 'evil' figments of Bainimarama & Khaiyum's dream of a renewed Fiji is becoming the worst Nightmare for these group of Fiji Citizens and their Island neighbors.

Father Barr's revelation is good for the cause. His story has touched many people in a way that some of this week's political stories haven;t. Thank you Father Barr.

Christian living and Christian values have public benefits and consequences, and people who are serious about their faith generally seek to live it out in an appropriate way in every part of life.

BARR A VICTIM OF HIS OWN POLITICS

Anonymous said...

Can you explain what you meant by that statement, Anonymous 12.57: a victim of his own politics? That's if you understand it yourself. lols!

The comments were against Barr and not the catholic church. It wasn't against the Australian embassy too. Barr wanted to be a smart ass and got his arse kicked...wohohoho

We all know that Kevin Barr supported Baini..who later

Unless you can prove that Barr was on those boards for his own personal gain or to build his personal empire, that sold-to-china-hook,line and stinker-WOHOHOHO is on you.

@Anon 10.42p.m.

No, I don't know that and I also cannot support what I think is very simplistic statement. From where I stand, it's clear that Bainimarama, the power-craving criminal had PRETENDED to support the work that catholic priest Barr had dedicated his lifetime to. It was clear from the start that the junta needed some moral basis and legitimacy to sell their coup against corruption to the people, and who better than the leadership of the Catholic church in Fiji who had openly opposed Fiji's previous coup d'etats, to get sucked into their CON. Bainimarama also enjoyed the ardent support of the Maras who are a prominent catholic family and who had the ear of Archbishop Mataca. So where are they now? Why aren't they speaking up to defend the retired Archbishop? Perhaps its because some of them are silenced by their compromised situation of corruption, debts and ongoing privileges paid for by the taxpayers of Fiji. Shameless sods.


As for your claim that Barr is a victim of his own politics, that is a no-brainer since it's clear to all that Barr had remained true to his work, doing the best he could under very difficult circumstances. The sudden mood swings, the tantrums and abuse of sorts have all been made by the psychotic iPM, and Barr is not the first to be at the receiving end of it. I don't doubt too for sec that Barr may have realised for sometime the grave error of judgment he had made in believing that Bainimarama was genuinely trying to improve the country instead of prolonging his own survival but that is what he'll have to live with it.

Why did idiot Barr choose to support the regime in the first place. He could have done the same thing working from outside. These guys always had hidden agenda.

@ 1.04p.m. anon

You're right, Barr could have and should have kept working from the fringes instead of jumping into the raging bull's mud pen. Then again, Fr, Barr wouldn't be able to avoid dealing with the goons who were in charge of everything, if he was to effectively discharge his duties to the people that he served.

Anyway, have a read of that post above yours and if you're not satisfied, simply ask Fr. Barr directly.

Seems Bai & the other treasonous thugs in planning their coup, courted the 'men of the cloth' for their support, certainly not the other way round, unless you can prove it which you must then announce from the rooftops.

As for your sweeping allegation of a 'hidden agenda' that sounds like some SDA driven fear-mongering propaganda such as the anti-christ triple six and what-not and what-next.

Get yourself an education to cure your ignorance, for it is largely that, fed by those with corrupt motives that has led to this perpetual coup culture we see in Fiji.

Barr is probably responding to most of the replies here himself.
Church and Politics dont go together. An educated man like him should have known better.
Only opportunists jumped on Franks bandwagon and almost everyone has had a fallout.

Nope @ 3.12PM, that'll be me, not Fr. Barr who probably has the most nbr of replies in here. Sorry to disappoint you. For those of you who have met or spoken with Fr. Barr, do I sound like him? Hmmm... that's strange since I have not met him, (yet) since I plan to, one of these days, God willing. Well, shall we just put it down to great, pious minds that think alike? hihi.

So what do you mean by 'Church and Politics don't go together'? Like what? Like how? Try not to use loaded statements like that if you can't explain what it means to you in the first place.
