|DISGRACED: Chand and his 'lost brother'.|
Pushp Chand Dass was also eyed by the regime as a candidate for Frank Bainimarama’s political party.
Dass is alleged to have fondled the breast of the teenage girl last month.
He has been charged and has already appeared in the Rakiraki Magistrates Court.
He was also employed by the Sugar Cane Growers Council and since his court appearance, has been sent on indefinite leave.
|SENT ON LEAVE: Chand shows off his connections.|
He boasted about his links with the military dictatorship posting a picture of himself on Facebook with the illegal Permanent Secretary for Justice, Mohammed Saneem.
Dass has also recently been talking up how he will be joining and working for Bainimarama’s political party.
On his Facebook he has several photos of himself with the country's illegal leader.
In one of them he writes “mera khoya ua bhai. mela me kho gaya (My lost brother who I had lost in a festival) and continues in English “its one time in life I wud not 4get. In the company of the PM, a nice n humble person.."
Under the Fiji’s current laws, the punishment for indecently assaulting a minor is a jail term.
But talk on the streets in Rakiraki is that Dass is trying to reconcile with the girl's family.
Under the current Fiji regime, anything is possible.
So just as Praveen Bala hasn’t lost his job for killing a pedestrian, Pushp Chand Dass may also walk free.
