We don't condone the violence but are intrigued the Fiji police is keen to find the people involved in a video showing a man and his girlfriend being beaten, considering it's failure to follow up on the thrashing and torture of escaped prisoner, Iowane Benedito, and another man in March this year.
The video has been circulated on Facebook in recent weeks but appears to have been taken down since police caught whiff of it.
The Benedito video was taken by someone among the Corrections officers, police and security forces used by Frank Bainimarama who meted out the brutal beating, so police had plenty of leads to identify the abusers.
Most of the perpetrators were also identified by C4.5 and named on this blog soon after the underground video surfaced, along with their police badge numbers and the positions they held as security force members.
This video of an Indian man and his Fiji girlfriend being beaten up by girl's mother after they were caught in her house is as disturbing as the violence that was regime sanctioned against Benedito and a second escapee.
But while widespread publicity and condemnation have failed to get the Fiji police to act on the violence on Benedito, the comments of police spokesperson Ana Naisoro suggests their will be action if they find the source of this home video.
Readers will remember that the crew who beat Benedito, set a dog on his friend and sexually brutalised Benedito.
We will follow with interest how the Fiji police handle this video, which was brought to C4.5's attention more than a week ago, since they seem to have one rule for themselves and regime hierarchy and another for the ordinary folk of Fiji.
