Singh denies FBC reports and says he will contest elections


The General Secretary of the Fiji Council of Trade Unions, Attar Singh, says FBC reports have incorrectly created the impression that he is putting his political career on hold.
 
He says the FBC TV and radio reports since Saturday have suggested that he will 'not contest the 2014 elections.'  


Singh, who has stood for the National Federation Party in previous elections, says this is wrong.
 
"I made no such statement during an interview with FBC yesterday.

"This will be obvious from the edited grabs the FBC has used in the story. In fact, I said that I would like to contest the elections to represent the interests of my members."



Singh said throughout his interview with the FBC reporter, he was critical of the recent political parties decree and the number of restrictions it placed on free exercise of political rights of 'our citizens, including mine as a trade unionist.'
 
"I have spoken to the journalist responsible for the story this morning and he has undertaken to correct the report.
 
"My members and supporters know and can rest assured that I will not shirk my responsibilities and obligations simply because of a draconian decree."

HOW CAN UN APPOINT A DICTATOR TO THE CHAIRMEN
PEOPLE HAVE TO START WRITING TO UN AND TELL THEM HOW WE BEEN TREATED IN FIJI BY THIS GOVT.
PEOPLE HAVE LOST LIFE UNDER THE DICTATOR.THIS MEN SHOULD BE IN JAIL FOR TREASON.
WE CANNOT LET DICTATORS LEAD AN HON ORG LIKE UN.
PEOPLE LOOK UP AT UN AS A BEACON OF HOPE AND LIGHT.

2006 coup has given us most number of items that need urgent and immediate questioning. However we are now so heavy with decree after decree that no one has the mouth to voice any questions except on site like C4.5.

UN does do ackground checks before any appointment. You need to come to realization that the world has different agenda to the public in Fiji that are living in fear under this illegal regime. We need to start our own fight as any help from UN, NZ or Australia will be long time before we see any.

Baini should be strip off the chair of UN and locked up in jail.
USA needs to sent some marines to pick him up President Obama is only the hope of Fiji people and the World to free worlds of Dictators.
President Obama and President Bush have freed us from Osama ,Saddam ,Gadaffi,and Others.
We have few dictators left like Baini,Assad, Mugabe,and others.
Let ask USA and Uk to Free the world now from Dictators and Let people of the world live in free democratic world in peace and harmony .

It seems that we have some people that are so ignorant and blind that they can not see the light of the day.

NFP was always been the party for the workers and the poor. FLP is party of Mahen Choor and his son Rajen Choor for their own financial gains at the expense of the poor.

I do not understand how stupid one can get. Those die hard Mahen lickers need to wake up and smell the java.

ChoorDhry is heading to be a guest of Govt. of Fiji at Naboro. Cant wait till September. hahahahaha Kaila!!!!

Mahen nailed his own coffin with his "grab" of AUD 2 million.

Was this a "kickback" for the Exim loan of $85 million for Sugar Industry? Beyond belief that the poor of Harayana coughed up this amount of money for two bit Pm of a pin prick in the Pacific.
You can rent a "mob" in India at a drop of a hat to stage anything.

In any event, this was not a private deal as Government of India was involved via its embassy in Sydney. This was all arranged at high level of government.

But as far as NFP, is it not even more Indian than FLP. Makes a mockery of all the 'talk" of non racist parties and the surprise is Attar Singh who has come off to date as one of the most principled leaders to date during this long and sorry saga of Fijian history.

A leopard can not change its spots.

Let it go and build a new Fiji Attar Singh.

Editor,
What an irony!
The Australian priest cum social worker 76 yo Father Kevin Barr so loves Fiji that he wants to live his remaining days in Fiji and die in Fiji (FT 27/1).
And yet the man had to hole up in the Australian High Commission to seek protection from the Fijian State.
If that's not strange pray tell me what is?
And what kind of Fijian state is it that hounds such a man?
sincerely,
rajend naidu

Fiji holiday today, its prophet mohammed's birthday, who the fuck is he? He does nothing to Fiji why give him a day's holiday, Kaiyum took away Ratu Sukuna holiday for this shit?

Come on Fiji leaders, Ratu Sukuna is Fiji's icon, he has done a lot in Fiji, infact his father allowed indians in our country in the first place, now Kaiyum the grand son of a refugee took Ratu Sukuna holiday off from the Fijians,

Bainimarama kei kemuni na sotia, ni yadra tiko ni vei vutu sona, Bainimarama you will take the blame, you and your army shit, se qai tekivu ga na vuli, sa tekivu vata tale na holiday,

Teach all I Taukei school drop outs how to plant crops, and teach indians how to run businesses and the government,

Bainimarama, iko sa dua saraga na tamata boci, sa mai vakaloloma o Viti kei na kena kawa tamata vei iko.very soon, Bai, very very soon we will see you running around the streets of Suva naked.

When democracy is restored in Fiji C4.5 needs to get the highest award available. Keep up the excellent work. No media in Fiji seem to be bothered to write or speak the truth like you guys.

I am not much of an awards fan . many shitty people are walking around with all kinds of awards to their name. But yes, C 4.5 has indeed been doing a fantastic job in keeping people in fiji and overseas in touch with the real happenings in fiji and the true nature of the military dictatorship imposed on the people.And for that pro-democracy people must be thankful to C4.5 and acknowledge its contribution in the struggle for the restoration of democracy in fiji. If it means an award then an award it should be.

Khaiyum is the main culprit. Frank and the Military Coucil should remove him from office immediately. It is about time Frank get an experience AG to advise him on legal issues concerning his government. Kivei kemuni na sotia, ni vola na nomuni ivola ni kudru me baleti Khaiyum na AG ni nomuni matanitu vakaivalu. Mo ni vuki totolo ni se bera ni qai luvu na nomuni waqa ka yali na nomuni kaukauawa ni yaragi.
Ni vosa vei Voreqe, me vakasakei koya vakatotolo.

An international organisation of evil (as it is repeatedly called) bent on world domination. KAOS. This is what Frank should call his party if he wants to stand for election.

Nothing wrong with NFP.It is an old but credible party and will continue to work towards a peaceful and democratic Fiji.

ASK doesn't have much longer to run his course. After a new constitution is drafted and rammed down our throats, ASK will become expendable. In fact, Frank will want to dispose of him as his first step to trying to build his popularity before the elections. He can join the long list of those who were once friends of the regime but have since become its victims.

The Political Party decree doesn't give anyone much chance to start a new party now, does it? Even established parties are having trouble meeting its arbitrary requirements. So, this isn't the time for new parties, mate.

Anonymous said...

The sum total of recent statements by Phil Goff, Murray mcCully, Bob Carr, ACTU and others on Fiji could be as follows - The constitution that khaiyum is presently drafting would be at best " A DROCONIAN" imposition on Fijians which would lack international norms and principles of good governance, rule of law, independent Judiciary, Human Rights. There is no doubt that some form of Elections would take place in July 2013 or Sep 2014. BUT as Phil Goff puts it" The real test for the regime is to prove such an elections is reflective of the free will of the fijian people, free, fair, transparent, credible" At the end of that process, the international community, EU and other trading partners would then decide if Fiji has a representative government or just another form of military junta in the democratic garb

Mahen Chaudhry: Coup victim or coup profiteer?

Mahen Chaudhry like to portray himself as victim of coups.
But in reality he has profited from coups – and handsomely so.
He used coup to raise money for coup victims.
Then he kept at least part of the money for himself .
Over $AUD$2m confirmed in secret Sydney bank account.
Possibly more from monies raised in Australia, NZ, GB, Canada, etc.

Conclusion:
Chadhury is not a coup victim.
Chaudhry is a coup profiteer.

Indian leaders said...

Forget mahen chaudhry, he is part his prime.
Attar is good leader but need people like professor Biman from USP to come out of retirement and fight the coup and lead the community as they are educated and young. we need people with good qualifications to make this country good.

Deepak Chauhan said...

I gave alot of money when Chaudry asked for funds to help support the Indian struggle in Fiji. The ass.... took money and use it for personal use. Now I cheer for Frank so he can punnish Chodoree.

Anonymous said...

why would someone like biman leave a quarter million job at USP to come and lead a bunch of ungrateful people in this country.It is easy to choose names and expect them to put their whole lives at risk.Why don't you seek him out and organize a meeting where he can explain a few things to people,mostly the Indian community to stop supporting this regime,especially those living abroad..

mahen 'paisa wala' chaudhry said...


Coup victim or coup entrepreneur?

Mahen Chaudhry is a coup entrepreneur.
Organised for $2m to go into his personal kitty after 1999 coup.
Raised funds all over he world.
Exactly how much was raised and how was it spent?
Also became interim finance minister after 2006 coup.

So yes, this man has profited handsomely from coups, definitely more than most, by posing as victim number one and making bucket loads of money. The real victims, cane farmers and poor people, did not see a cent of the $2million.

Yet all those sanctimonious press releases from FLP about transparency and accountability by auntie asha.

It is beyond a joke.

well, this unionist Attar will not get my vote because he has no balls to say..this draconian decree is against all sorts of human rights..i will protest not participate..infact none of these polies deserve anyones vote because they cannot stand up to the illegality...just dance along to the army marching band..

To Anonymous at 10:45:

You are right: biman is better-off with quarter million USP job because he is rubbish leader.
He was given chance to be leader of NFP but lasted only a day since he did not want to lose his USP job. He should remain at USP and forget leadership.

Biman put his life at risk? You gotta be joking! Ask his friends from fiji youth league. They did dangerous work while Biman the leader led from behind, hahaha.

This fence-sitter is not fit for leadership. he makes pretend comments against regime. If you read carefully he now days actually praise Frank and despicable regime.

Think about it: how many times has Biman been taken to camp compared to Attar and others in NFP and union movement?

Biman is by birth a cunning chamar from Labasa who looks after only himself and has everyone fooled.

..but Attar you are quite willing to dance to the illegal army bank tune??..you unprincipled so called leader...you definitely not getting my vote..if i ever get to exercise it
