Regime moves on Fiji's seabed to tie up international deal

Lockheed Martin: from defence to minerals
The American aerospace, defense and security company, Lockheed Martin, is driving the regime timetable to pass a new decree to allow offshore  companies to search  the Fiji seabed for minerals.

Lockheed Martin is one of the world's largest defence contractors and has already sighted the draft decree (see below) the regime plans to approve next week.

While stakeholders have been given just a couple of days to make submissions, the company has according to those in the know, been well-consulted. 



An article in the Papua New Guinea Mine blog (http://ramumine.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/us-giant-using-sopac-and-illegal-fiji-regime-to-access-seabed-minerals-in-international-waters/)  says the American corporate giant is insisting on new laws before it enters into a formal venture with the regime.

Lockheed, which in recent years has been awarded billion dollar contracts by the Pentagon, is to then apply to the International Seabed Authority for a new exploration licence.

It already has the approval of the Authority to explore for polymetallic nodules in one area in partnership with the British government. It now wants to join Fiji as its official national partner for further exploration licences.

The decree has been drafted with the help of the Deep Sea Minerals Project and there is wide fear Fiji's interests, environmental and otherwise, will not be reflected in the agreement.

The Papua New Guinea Mine says the lawyer for the Deep Sea Project, Hannah Lily, has been advocating shamelessly for the multinational, even stipulating in the draft that "LH would not accept the jurisdiction of the courts of Fiji, in case of dispute. The sub-contract would specify that the parties would be subject to UK law and courts."

Ohja Mutak also known as Josetaki also known as chamaar also known as racist,

As someone who reads this blog for information, I find your post over and over on this blog awith f words as disgusting. Unless your wife eloped with a muslim, I suggest that you keep your post against all muslims.

Not all muslim support the coup. Secondly, what do you have to say about a number of hindus who support the regime. First was MPC.

Its clear you are a hindu as you use indians words that are not common used by fijians.

My only expalanation for your racist view is that either your wife eloped with a muslim or you got banged by one.

There are sure ways to track you down and have you answer to the Court of Law for your action. I don't want to go there. I sincerely hope that you take is seriously and heed to my warning.

I think you are way out of touch. Charan Jeath Singh left NFP way back in 2005. As far as Sayed Khaiyum Sr. is concerned he retired from NFP way, way back in 1990's. So please do wake up and bring yourself to date.

Moses Cakobau said...

You fuckers flame the comments like idiots while SDL and FLP will be kicked out technically with khaiyums shitty decrees...BTW i reckon the guys only eats decrees and shits decrees, anyway, back to the point....there is no doubt that Aiarse Jr is taking advise for Aiarse Snr, all because he is too green, also, because Aiarse Snr, still hates all other political parties just becaause they couldnt win any elections..

Yet when when they had won, once back in the day, they were all fighting among themselves who will be the PM, and they just couldnt come to any agreement...what happnd after that, everyone knws...or not...

my point is, while SDL will have to change its name again with new initials, to the people it will be a new party...this will create confusion among supporters of SDL..[khaiyum's theory]...so SDL will have no chance on winning the election...

Now, they frame FLP for forging the signatures, which basically means FLP defaulted the decree, so their application to register will be thrown out...only left is NFP, the party of the business people...

Most likely khaiyum will join NFP, and Bainimarama to slide in the president's shoes, sending Nailatikau thinking "what the fuck just happend", while he is busy promoting HIV, [lol, sadly, seems the guy has nothing else to do, so we know why he was put there anyway]

With NFP winning the elections, khaiyum will be the PM which is equal to:

increase in food costs

increase in taxes [the medium to big business people have a way of showing their expense more so that they pay less or no tax, in a way working class people are fucked]

increase in transportation costs [fare]

increase in prices of vehicle parts

increase in prices of oil, fuel

increase in prices of clothing

increase in prices of stationeries, books

The people will be monitored more heavily as they have all the data about the people in fiji, so forget another coup.

Benefits of the regime in killing political parties:

1. Clean win
2. no threat to the new govt
3. ligitamise new govt
4. can rule the country as long as they wants [as next election will come, they will hatch another plan so that they make sure that they are in power]
5. make more money other that their salaries and benefits.
6. bring in their trusted and close families and friends into the govt and top jobs
7. among other things...

Before the this sea bed saga what about the people of Naitasiri to counter claim the FEA for disturbing the river and streams which was the outcome of building a bloody dam that benefit the goverment,companies etc,etc. and others.Has anyone done a impact survey/studies around those areas to see the outcome of building the dam?They build the dam and they walk away forgetting us the indigenous of this country. If the Maori in NZ can take the eergy company to court why cant we do the same.?We indigenous people of the land should be careful of the qoliqoli bill/right as any decision on this 8issue will afect our health,traditon,etc,etc.Health I mean if my grand father use to eat fish or Kai from the river bed and suddenly due these developments its aken away fom my diet it will surely affect my health as I will start eating tin fish,etc,etc.Traditonally most of us indigenous we have traditonal obligation to our chiefs and we used to serve the first and best part of a particular food to our chiefs may be now the Lotu????how can we kept on doing these traditon if suddenly some kind of a kai dia muslim son of a bastrad like Kaiyum who got no culture or what so ever introduced such a degree.Voreqe tovolea mo rai tiko baleta eda na kasere nai taukei ena i vukivuik ni ka dia osa vakabauta tiko qori.

An excerpt from an interview with Bukarau, whilst being transported to Nukulau. And looks like Naupoto was Franks main advocate...the smiling assain...Dobo tale tu o Vandham...Vakarautaki iko vinaka tiko Naupoto...sa voleka.

BUKARAU: "Naupoto gave a short brief, which basically said, "if you try anything to escape or untie the rope, you will be dead". He said this 2-3 times. There were about 6 men in front of us, and a lot more at the back with weapons...We received kicks, rifle butts and continuous verbal abuses. George, Ligairi and Silatou were getting most of the abuses and we had people rubbing their boots on the back of our heads. We than sailed to Nukulau through Beqa waters. We were constantly assaulted and abused thoughout the 2 hours or so journey. We were soaked and from the rough seas. I could feel that certain individuals did not have their hearts and minds on what was happening (assault and abuses). I received a swelling on the left side of my face and 3 days later we were taken to hospital."
KOROVUSERE: "It was still dark when we reached the Naval Base. Naupoto warned us that if we tried to do anything, we would be shot. Mua was kicked on the esohagus. Silatolu at one stage had difficuty breathing due to the continuous punching. I was asked about Adi Samanunu and what she was doing in the country. I was kicked on the face. They told us to experience life in the navy and one of our detainees was threatened of being sexually assaulted, and that it was normal in the Navy. Once we arrived near Nukulau, one of the boys said I was his Commanding Officer in Sinai and Lebanon, whilst I was being kicked and had his foot on my head. Our hands were released at about 0800hrs once we were inside the perimeter fence."

Naupoto...the smiling assin

This is what the Navy pers did to Army pers who were tortured by then enroute to Nukulau.
Petty Officer SAKIUSA ROKOTAKALA from MINFO and RFMF Naval Division, destroyed photos by exposing them before giving to Naupoto. Lieutenant Humphery Biu Tawake, second-in-command of Kiro took pictures: "Just to give us an upper hand to make a psychological statement. The camera was not mine, it was handed to me by Rokotakala...Just a comment regarding security of the information imparted today. Will the Board guarantee the security?"

Abel Seaman JONE MATEYAWA: "Upon approaching Mr Nata, I physically assaulted him with punches and I butted Mr Speight's head with my rifle butt. After what I had done I then realised that my action's was morally wrong and very unethical of a naval rating"; Lt Commander Sanaila Vitau Naqali:"My concern is how confidential is this information/statements to [BOI]. I have heard threats from outside that people wanting to know who ...took those to Nukulau. An example is that a certain group of people went to Raiwaqa looking for a "Lauan" member of the escort group. Sunia Cama came to the Naval Base (main gate) asking as to who took the detainees to Nukulau. This is actually happening"

Undert the Command of Naupoto the ex soldiers who had served with distinction in Lebanon and Sinai were treated as thugs and as Abel Seaman Jone Mateyawa said " Upon approaching....." shows the torture these Naval pers inflicted on these Reserve Officers just because at that time they could.Torture is never allowed in any area of operation of Military pers let a lone in a peaceful country like Fiji. This is a shameful episode in the annals of Fiji.s Military history and 9it must not be forgotten.Now we know why Naupoto Joined Bainimarama. He does not want to be tried for his crimes against humanity. Well the truth is slowly coming out and the report of Mr Jacksons Board of Inquiry finding will be known. Fiji must right the wrongs by these glory seekers and they all must be brought to justice so that this will not ever happen again in Fiji.

LIGAIRI: "Upon arrival [at the Naval Base] I was the second last to board the awaitig ship. We were moved to the forecastle and we were handled roughly. NAUPOTO briefed us and his orders were very aggressive. I had a feeling that he didn't care about who we were. I never expected Fijians to behave and act in that manner. I was so confused that I did not listen to what they were saying or asking. A lot of questions about my ability to change myself into rats and other things were put forward. I was assaulted with punches, rifle butts, kicks to my head and body. I was also very concerned about our safety particulalry with our hands tied at our backs and the possiblity of us getting washed to the sea. The assault inflicted on me has caused me headaches, blurred vision and this is due to a rifle barrel pushed to the side of my head."
SAVUA: "We were than taken to the Naval Base. Upon arrival we boarded the ship and briefed by Naupoto, "If you try anything to escape or untie the rope, you will be dead". One of the navy personnel began verbal abuses. Abusive verbal language was hurled at me and others, "Savua/Mua drau vei cai". One of them asked me if I wanted to be Commander. They stated that this was Commander's (Bainimarama's) vessel...They even threatened to sexually assault Nata and stated that it was quite common in the Navy. They continued to butt and assault us. Wainiqolo was inflicting most of the punishment...The assault continued right until we arrived at Nukulau and when the ship was anchored off at Nukulau"

The Nukulau Torment and Naupoto

MUA: "We were driven to Walu Bay. They told us to come out of the truck one by one. I was walking behind Speight when he was thumped from the back. We were ushered to the forecastle of KIRO. We were seated between the gun turrett and the wave breaker. As soon as the ship left the pier the assault started. I was kicked in the face, rifle butted on the face and verbally abused. I lost one tooth in the process. This sequence went on for approximately 3 hours until we got here (Nukulau). My vision was blurred for 3 days due to the injuries I sustained. I was kicked around and on the esophagus. When this happened, I almost lost all consciousness and I thought I was going to die. We were told that we were going to an unknown destination...During the transfer to Nukulau, I slipped and was given two more kicks before I reached ashore. I cannot believe that people could be so brutal. The Military Police (MP) who were on Nukulau wept and asked us to forgive them for what had happened on the ship [Kiro]"
KONATACI: "We were taken to the Naval Base and as soon as we arrived, they shoved us onto the ship and forced us to the forecastle. We were given instrcutions to stay in one place and not to move or we would be shot. We were told to sit in front of the ship (forecastle), and as we sat down we were punched, kicked and verbally abused whilst our hands were tied. It seemed they were acting on instructions. As we left the harbour towards the open sea, I was very frightened naturally because I came from the highlands. My hand was kicked and my fingers were crushed with a boot, which was fractured. It was around 07000hrs, when we arrived near Nukulau. I could see others carrying injuries...A lot of verbal abuse was hurled at us. The two Lauan colleagues particularly copped a lot of abuse. I thought that we would be treated well and arrested as political prisoners and not be treated the way we were."
NATA: "We were taken to Naval Base and as soon as we got off, I was punched on the left, and I knew we were in for a rough ride. Once we got to the forecastle, we were warned in unequivocal terms that we were to follow orders. We were taken for a 2 and half hours ride and throughout the journey I was punched, kicked, butted and abused. Apart from the inhumane treatment, I was disappointed with the sexual taunts and the threat to be sexually assaulted. We were threatened and one particular chap WAINIQOLO (Leading Seaman Walesi) was very abusive and continued to physically assault us. Both Mua and mysef were badly hurt because of our links to Lau and Tui Nayau, Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara so was George Speight, Ligari and Silatolu. The MP's treated us well and they even cried when they saw the state we were in...My colleagues would have mentioned other details of the assault".

brief analysis :
what happen to geroge speight like mentioned above and his group, is a great lesson to all. if we do anything now, they will crushed all of us , worse than what happen in 2000. the soldiers a already doing it in 2006, till today, as lawyers always say in law,its a fact.so any destabilization of government will be worse , they will smack you and your family. they have the gun and total full control of the army.if the army boys revolt aganist the commander , he will crushed them like the CRW , put them in suva prison without medical assistance ,just like in the year 2000. since now they bainimarama and his boys from the army , plus khaiyum will not want to end up in prison , so for them it will be there "last stand" if they do not fight the opposition , then they will be in prison or may be killed . so it is there last defense. the people , its a choice , do i scarifies myself for church, vanua, chief ,politics,freedom,democracy ,etc. the question in peoples mind , what will i get out of rebellion to the state ,what will my family get, if it fails , what happen? where do i end up? prison/morgue? where will my family end up? will foreign government help us? they are all questions , no one has the answer. is anything going to be given to me.thats a big question. oh sodelpa is just going to use me and dump me. done by rabuka, kamisese mara ,etc.

the choice is yours ladies and gentleman .

Long live freedom
Long live Liberty
Long Live democracy

Following return to democracy, we will replace the agreements for mining on and in seabeds with miners to insert what the people want which take regards of the owners' interests, country's interests and the sustainability of the environment.

Foreign miners and explores of Fiji's seabed must understand that you will be dealing with an illegal Govt which does not have legal right to speak and negotiate with anybody on behalf the Fijians and they enter into agreement with the illegal Govt at their own peril and risks of being forced packing up and going home empty handed.

Leahy vetting should disqualify Naupoto from any more overseas deployments. The man is very much at the center of serious human rights concerns.

mark manning said...

A great idea, perhaps once Democracy is restored, all the Countries who invested in mining offshore, will lose all their money without recompense. let them go ahead, greedy bastards.

First they take oil from arabs now they onto our minerals. Knowing how lamusona our dictator is he will say yes to the yanks to save his big ass.

Naupoto the family man is a nice and friendly man. I guess he was showing his military side on that brutal torture case. Let's be fair to the guy folks, he's a military man and was carrying out his duties in that trying times of 2000. The real culprit in this case is Frank, he authorised deployment of weapons and crw soldiers to parliment then later ordered their execution. Those soldiers in parliment were still recieving salaries during coup. Since they were still on payroll that means they're still employed by the commander.

The Fiji Government Should Know Very Well If Any Are Reading The Blog 4.5. The Decree if it infringes on itaukei rights and ownership, we will not take it lying down and take this very seriously we will burn Fiji to the Ground starting with Suva.This is no threat Qarauna!

Anonymous said...

sorry 1.39am, the Decree already does that,....all mining royalties go to the State which is now Bainis gang...next it will be the land bank,,,sorry but your itaukei lands are not safe now...it was safer under the previous governments including chordys.

The BOI report has been in existence since 2000, but never saw the light of day because of a biased judiciary in the form of JUDGE SCOTT who together with his group of judges aligning with 2000 coupsters refused to allow the report to be disclosed.
Ironically, the opposite rival judicial faction, GATES and SHAMEEM and big fines CALANCHINI ex army counsel, is now in support of this current coupsters lot..
sadly, the only true independent judicial officers are no longer there because they were seen as not loyal to this regimes agenda...
go on Victor Lal publish more BOI excerpts...how about a dedecated BLOG just for the whole BOI Report...

Naupoto must be an abuser.Probabaly abusing his wife and kids.Most of the Navy and miltary officers (lower rank intake Fiji Junior pass) comes from famalies that been struggling and trying to make ends meet so abusing its other is part of their home everydays life.
If the education standard is such than they will do anything to keep their job.Simple isnt it

Anonymous said...


Everybody reading this can now see the dark and evil side of Naupoto. Before this, many people saw him as a smiling family man who appeared much more educated than his colleagues in the military, including his very dumb boss, Baini.
I bet his children and family members also reading this will be ashamed.Sorry, live with that brand until God's will prevails.

Kai Bau said...

Early preganancy to Naupotos daughters and Naboro for his sons.Most of these miltary officers children are either the girls become pregnant earlier in life or the boys failed the exams and roam the streets.Why?Most of these idiots think that the militant type of upbringing will make their kids success in life but its not. All their kids do, is rebel againsts their parents.They also think that abusing is a way of teaching but it does not happenned with human beings because human beings (us) have brains which most of the military personell dont have.They have their balls instead which they take turns rubbing each others balls.The most shinning balls of all is Voreqe and 50% of Voreqes shinning ball was Naupotos hand job.

We want the real C4.5 editor not the person who thinks he or she can paste the whole decree and hope it passes off as news. Where's the analysis and the news? You call yourself a journalist?
BTW I do not see anything wrong with the decree except maybe the makers who made and their intentions.

Australia and New Zealand last night on BBC News that they would be making a decision next week Tuesday on their strong appeals to the UN to stop using Fiji soldiers for peace keeping duties. Then, if you think you will harrass the people of Fiji, thats what the international communities are waiting for. For you to do that to give them under international laws, the right to infiltrate Fiji! Ia kachia!
