Fiji police drag feet on election decree breaches








Two more complaints have been filed against Frank Bainimarama for breaching the regime's own decrees, aimed at annihilating the political parties at the September poll.

Fiji police say they are investigating but our question is: Will there be a quick outcome as when the chair of the Media Industry Authority, Ashwin Raj, decided without a hearing that Ratu Timoci Vesikula had made a 'hate speech' and that Fiji TV was wrong to run it?

Raj ruled within a day of receiving the complaint from Sharon Smith Jones of the Fiji Ministry of Information.

Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum listed as buying Fiji First domain
The United Front for a Democratic Fiji and Mick Beddoes filed the complaint about Bainimarama campaigning without first registering his party on March 30 and for using the country's coat of arms on his campaign bus on April 1.

Another two complaints were filed yesterday (one of exerting influence on party officials and the other that Bainimarama doesn't have the required 5,000 signatures yet is in full campaign mode), but there has been no comment other than police acknowledging complaints have been made. Par for the course.

Bainimarama has been using government and taxpayer resources to vote hunt, for at least two years, if not longer, bringing us to another discovery: there is  evidence his strategist, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, bought the domain name Fiji First several years ago - 2009, according to some sources.

Bainimarama revealed only recently he was going to the polls under the banner Fiji First, a name we now know has been around since 2008 and the 2012 Constitution consultations.

Question: When was the plan for an election hatched? - and was the domain name bought in anticipation of installing Bainimarama 'legally' in government, even before they started manufacturing decrees?

Another question: Is Qorvis still being paid $1million in Fiji taxpayer dollars to fund Bainimarama's campaign?

Ashwin Raj speaks of the need for media to play fair, but it's the political parties who are getting the raw deal.

In recent days Fiji Village made a big fuss about SODELPA youth leader, Pita Waqavonovono, getting ticked off for using swear words in a tweet about Fiji First.

In another story, a second SODELPA official, Tupeni Baba, was cited as 'complimenting' Bainimarama for his campaign style of going out to the people.

The Fiji Sun, meanwhile, trumpeted 'True democracy is a high turnout at the polls' plus the line "The prime minister has shown it pays to get out among the people."

It only pays though, it seems, when Bainimarama gets accolades and not a talking to, as Timoci Vesikula gave him at the Tailevu Provincial Council meeting.


Be prepared for more 'fair play rulings' while genuine complaints are delayed or buried.

Editor's Note: C4.5 did not run the Vesikula speech and the MIDA reaction at the time and takes the opportunity to publish both at this time. We will also try to catch up on some of the debate that came about as a result of the 'mixing water and kerosene' comment.

Bai crooking from fnpf members/tax payers.
no one should vote this crook regime.

mark manning said...

The only way the message can get through, is to stop completely, remittances!
There must still be enough time left before the election to convince Fijians that all is not well in Camelot after all!
Their reaction then would be, to "not" vote for the demented Frank Bainimarama!

Nothing compared to what Bai did to the Fijian people.

1. He destabilized the very foundation of the Fijian society by removing the GCC and declare war on the Methodist Church,

2. He removed the FAB scholarship and replace it with the Toppers Scholarship which only 14 Fijian were qualified out of 600. Tell me how many Fijian students and is there any from your tikina, village or province.

3. He is the caused of miseries to many thousands of civil servants knowing that the majority are always the kai Viti when he introduced 55 retirement age.

He was not an elected leader and he is trying to change many things that we hold dear.

I must tell you he is really scared now because for the first time he is now experiencing the real world and Kai Viti are not stupid to be fooled again by this man. The kai Viti are always emotionally attached to their Chiefs, Vanua and veiwekanis.

Burebasaga and Tovata are already being mobilsed and Kubuna will soon join the two confederacies.

He was trying to gain the sympathy of of the Tailevu Chiefs but KEROSENE and WATER can not mix as rightly stated by Ratu Vesikula.

The message from his Chiefs is contained in the two letter word by Ratu Vesikula, FORGET IT or GUILECAVA.

We all know that BAINIMARAMA does not have a base and that is why Indians will vote for FLP/NFP and Fijians/Kailoma (Vasu) will vote for SODELPA.

Hold on!..uh..do we really all fear the Vice Admiral and his sheriff Aiyuz's alleged ploys to continue manipulate what we desire as an equitable election process, thence fear the threat of true decision of the majority?...even after surrendering the Commander’s robe to someone outside his inner circle?

Really?? I dare say here that the present Commander is not in the Rear Admiral’s inner circle!

Why should he be in his apolitical role? Besides, the New Military Commander, being a smarter tactician than most of his predecessors would desire to leave his own autonomous legacy....uh...less tainted than his immediate predecessor.

For you see, the Vice Admiral may not now enjoy the full support of the Fiji Military as still think he does. Simple Military protocol now comes to play as he cannot now directly order a serving rank from a buck private to a General as he previously had that luxury pre-disrobing.

Why should we fear as now many in the Fiji Military have redirected their respective allegiance and purpose of worship away from the Vice Admiral, and possibility away from his trusted inner circle. They are aware his white starched uniform is now only ceremonial like the former Commander, Major General SLR.

What we all have control over is to focus on the value and distribution of our own votes when in the privacy of the pooling both.

That is what we all should be talking about and addressing in groups on how to be desensitized from the clutches and lust for Government favors. Like conveniently distributed favors; from donations of village foot paths, electrification, wharfs etc that may have temporary satisfied our appetite for temporary gain and a photo shot with Mr Bainimarama, yet blinds our corporate resolve to vote out any semblance of the present regime.

The very next question we should then ask ourselves is whether we would strive to build a monument to mark the Vice Admiral’s visit to our village, settlements and even Temple, Mosque, Churches, Synagogue in the past and during the campaign era 2014??

All we are saying is that some have ascribe to Mr Bainimarama and his sheriff Aiyuz more than they domain they really control!!

Time to get back what is rightfully owes...starting by owning our precious vote in the privacy of the pooling booth on election day!

No question that frankie himself is the law and I'm only banking on his defeat since thats probably the only thing that will bring him down.

But the polls are rigged anyways, its going to be very hard to throw the man out with his protege Ayarse.

Just hoping SODELPA can put frankie in his place....Naboro prison that is.

My prediction below after the election.

SODELPA=40%
FLP=20%
NFP=30%
Fiji First=5%
Other Parties=5%

After the elction Bai and his chief advisor Khaihum will be transferred to Naboro.

All airport/ exit point to be secured so that all those criminals will not run away from justice.

Make sure Nur Bano, Shammem's Sisters, Gates, Hoteliers, Business people and Muslim advisers NOT to run away.

His brother WITH NO EXPERIENCE is High Commissioner to Malaysia.

His daughter, Litiana, WITH NO EXPERIENCE is CEO of The Fiji Sports Council

His daughter, Rubyann, WITH NO EXPERIENCE is Manager of the National Net Ball Team

His brother in law, Francis KILLER Kean,

- Only served a few months of his manslaughter Prison sentence.

- Became Commander of the Navy when NO CONVICTED CRIMINAL is allowed to be an officer in the Navy

- FBC has borrowed over $20m from the Fiji Development Bank and it can’t even pay back the interest. Aiyaz got the gogovernment to guarantee the loan and insists all government departments spend most of their marketing budget with FBC

Aunty Nur Bano Ali

- She got over $500k for consultancy project on Rewa Dairy.

- She takes commission / handling fee on regime million dollar salaries handled by her firm

Nepotism and favouritism are also rife under USP's Maharajah with no clothes VC Rajesh Chandra. USP is the base from which the regime controls academia and the media, overseen by Rajesh Chandra. USP academic Ashwin Raj, or arse-wind raj, was appointed by Sayed-Khaiyum. Arse-wind controls the media as head of MIDA from his USP base.

Lying bitch Dr Esther Williams controls the academics, with Rajesh Chandra's blessings. Anyone against the coup gets the marching orders like Marc Edge, Wadan Narsey, Biman Prasad and Lynda Tabuya.

You guys just look at the all the blog sites and you can tell that 90% of bloggers are ANTI REGIME.

I also heard that Bai got a heart attack and Kaihum was admitted to St Giles.

You can not lie all the times .....but they have to do this because both have build empires for themselves.

Both can not afford to loose this elections because they have got money stacked in Hon Kong.

To Anon April 18, 2014 at 9:22 PM, "Nepotism and cronyism by Bainimarama Party" they also include Fiji Rugby Union through his Chairman, PS Finance Waqabaca and acting CEO Berlin ("I know it all") Kafoa. Firing the Snr Operations Officer and contracting Paula Biu last week whilst telling the media, "no decision has been made." Son-in-law and FRU Development Manager Sale Sorovaki earmarked for FRU CEO post. Doesn't the illegal PM realise that these "masipolo" by the Board are political liabilities that will come back to haunt him in the election as politicians look for "dirt" to throw back at him? My advice to Bainimarama is to fire the Chairman FRU and the Board. It is one liability he does not need in the lead up to September elections.

Why doesn't someone poll Fijians outside of Fiji, where they cannot be touched by the regime's intimidation tactics, and see who they would vote for if the election were held tomorrow? Not a scientific sampling, to be sure, but certainly more credible than anything the Fiji Sun writes.

USP's Maharajah with no clothes Rajesh Chandra said...

Lately USP Maharajah Rajesh Chandra told USP graduands to make “an unshakable commitment to having high ethical standards in everything they did". But this hypocrite does not practice what he preaches. he is yet to explain how ForumSec reject Jai Kumar was appointed to a very senior, well-paid position with no advertisement. Marketing and development manager Jai Kumar has no qualifications in marketing or development. The one 'qualification' he does have is gift for sucking up. regime lackey Rajesh has no moral authority to lead the university or lecture students about ethics given his own nepotistic and unethical conduct in suppressing academic freedom. There is a lot that is rotten at USP. Jai Kumar tries to hide it with his PR work, but the stink is still there.

CORRUPTION & NEPOTISM AT USP said...

@USP Maharajah Rajesh Chandra, I was at the graduation ceremony at Vodafone arena. It was sickening listening to Rajesh Chandra grandstanding and pontificating to students given the corrupt manner in which he runs the university with cronies like Esther Williams, Angela Jokhan and Jai Karan.

These people have been promoted or given jobs that they did not deserve, or were not qualified for. Esther Williams was supposed to retire but Rajesh Chandra created special position to retain her o a fat salary when all she does is meet and greet. This is how Rajesh Chandra squanders tax payer money.The same Rajesh Chandra sacked Dr Eci Nabalarua, who was doing far more work than bloody esther Williams. We can't wait to see Esther williams go because she bullies and threatens staff, and is known for her shady dealings and unethical practices, such as publicly lying when the Anthony Tarr salaries scandal was exposed.

1. He took the elected govt by force using the senile President as his means of achieving his ultimate goal through the advise of Khaihum.

2. He initiate and plan for the killing of innocent CRW soldiers.

3. He planned the demise of the Chiefly system and even worked with the Muslim Brotherhood to deny the I taukei students with scholarships.

4. He paid himself with $1.3 million dokar salary almost the same salary with President Obama.

5. He has not yet to produce the Auditor General Report which shows he is actually hiding all the abused he has done over the 8 years of dictatorship.

6. He dismissed the Public Account Committee before the election which shows hoe stupid he can be.

7. He only listen to Khaihum as he has been doing the thinking for him because he does not have inside his brain just like all hail Bainimarama.

8. Not a very good role model to our young people as he is a convulsive liar and a muderrer.

According to Middle East scholar E.M.Wherry, whose translation of the Koran is still used today, in pre-Islamic times Allah-worship, as well as the worship of Baal, were both astral religions in that they involved the worship of the sun, the moon, and the stars (A Comprehensive Commentary on the Quran, Osnabrück: Otto Zeller Verlag, 1973, p.36).

"In ancient Arabia, the sun-god was viewed as a female goddess and the moon as the male god. As has been pointed out by many scholars as Alfred Guilluame, the moon god was called by various names, one of which was Allah (op.cit., Islam, p.7)

"The name Allah was used as the personal name of the moon god, in addition to the other titles that could be given to him.

"Allah, the moon god, was married to the sun goddess. Together they produced three goddesses who were called 'the daughters of Allah'. These three goddesses were called Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat.

"The daughters of Allah, along with Allah and the sun goddess were viewed as "high" gods. That is, they were viewed as being at the top of the pantheon of Arabian deities" (Robert Morey, The Islamic Invasion, Eugene, Oregon, Harvest House Publishers, 1977, pp.50-51).

"Allah is found ... in Arabic inscriptions prior to Islam" (Encyclopedia Britannica, I:643)

"The Arabs, before the time of Mohammed, accepted and worshipped, after a fashion, a supreme god called allah" (Encyclopedia of Islam, eds. Houtsma, Arnold, Basset, Hartman; Leiden: E.J.Brill, 1913, I:302)

"Allah was known to the pre-Islamic Arabs; he was one of the Meccan deities" (Encyclopedia of Islam, ed. Gibb, I:406)

"Ilah ... appears in pre-Islamic poetry ... By frequency of usage, al-ilah was contracted to allah, frequently attested to in pre-Islamic poetry" (Encyclopedia of Islam, eds. Lewis, Menage, Pellat, Schacht; Leiden: E.J.Brill, 1971, III:1093)

"The name Allah goes back before Muhammed" (Encyclopedia of World Mythology and Legend, "The Facts on File", ed. Anthony Mercatante, New York, 1983, I:41)

The origin of this (Allah) goes back to pre-Muslim times. Allah is not a common name meaning "God" (or a "god"), and the Muslim must use another word or form if he wishes to indicate any other than his own peculiar deity" (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics, ed. James Hastings, Edinburgh: T & T Clark, 1908, I:326)

The word alah does exist in Hebrew but it is not a proper name and it never refers to God. It has three principal meanings: (a) to curse, swear, or adjure; (b) to lament (weep); and (c) to arise, ascend, climb, go away, leap, etc.. It is an indisputable fact that ALLAH does not appear even once as the Name of God, or even of a man, in the Hebrew Scriptures. There is no word 'alah' or 'allah' in the Greek New Testament at all. It was, quite simply, unknown in the Bible world. To therefore claim that 'Allah' was the name of God in the Bible is without one single shred of evidence. God has always been known as Yahweh, or (much less frequently) by the contraction Yah.

On the occasion of Easter, and in view of the Fiji Sun claims, this seems like a good time to re-publish a classic piece from the past -- one Croz Walsh couldn't handle. Happy Easter!

Part 2 of 2

I'm not surprised to see the Fiji Times singled out for criticism on this pro-Bainimarama website. After all, the regime has been gunning to destroy or take over the FT for a long time. This is not because the Times has practised irresponsible journalism, as Aiyaz and others claim, but because it persisted in reporting factually on regime misdeeds.

'Media responsibility', as used by the regime and its supporters, is a euphemism for propagandising on behalf of the regime. If you're 'responsible', you print what the regime wants. If you're 'irresponsible', you print something that the regime doesn't want published, regardless of whether it is true.

It's sad to see what has happened to Fiji's most venerable publication, the Fiji Times, under regime pressure. The regime cut off all government advertising. It forced the Times to sack editor-in-chief Netani Rika. It forced the newspaper's sale. It imprisoned its new owner on phony charges, probably because he had the temerity to save the newspaper, and/or because he's a commercial rival of the Tappoos, prominent regime supporters.

That's to say nothing about the firebombing of the homes of Fiji Times employees. Too bad the regime never caught the culprits.

Times temporary publisher Dallas Swinstead hoped he could placate the regime by dumbing down the paper and avoiding political content. But all he achieved was a bland newspaper with a weak editorial staff. Well, I suppose the only alternative was shuttering its doors forever, but it's sad to see a former champion of press freedom fall to such a low estate. So much for freedom of the press in Fiji.

It's even more heartbreaking to see what became of the Fiji Sun after the regime took publisher Russell Hunter from his home and expelled him from Fiji in the middle of the night. The Sun has since become the regime's sycophantic parrot. No wonder it receives all government advertising and even gets paid to publish the fascistic regime supplement 'New Dawn'.

I've learnt from more than one source inside the Sun that the newspaper and the regime are closer than gums and teeth. The regime gives its news and interviews almost exclusively to the Sun, which tends to build circulation even among those opposed to the regime. Bainimarama sometimes calls Sun reporters to dictate stories without attribution. Aiyaz sometimes writes his own glowing tourism columns for publication under a Sun reporter's byline -- a violation, incidentally, of the Media Decree he himself authored and promulgated. Sun publisher Peter Lomas personally picks out what he considers the most flattering photos of Aiyaz and tries to include one in almost every edition. That's called 'responsible media' in today's Fiji.

Media do need to be more responsible. In most free countries, that is achieved through libel laws, peer review, and high standards of journalistic ethics.

In Fiji, those who want to follow events have little choice but to turn to blogs. Yes, blogs are notoriously poor sources of information, but they're more reliable than Fiji's newspapers. What does that tell you about the current health of Fiji's press?

Indeed, were this the first Easter Sunday, I would expect that only bloggers would have reported the Resurrrection. The Fiji Sun would have printed the guards' version of events exclusively, whilst the Fiji Times would merely have made passing mention of the earthquake.

Semi Meo, phew, are you full of it!

First of all, stop promoting Bainimarama. When he was a Commodore, you called him Rear Admiral. Now that he's supposedly a Rear Admiral, you're calling him Vice Admiral.

The point is that all of us who can will vote, but will our votes be counted? Nur! So why have you been throwing cold water on every call to action over the past five years, saying that we should instead wait patiently and passively for an election that anyone with any sense could already see was going to be fixed?

Calling you to account for your BS is not satanic. Or do you now claim your word is holy writ?

It also isn't nothingness. Nameless Cyber Bully challenged you to agree never to post here again if the elections proved to be other than free or fair. You dodged him the whole time, so obviously you didn't believe yourself the lies you were feeding the rest of us. How shameful of you now to return to this blog when it's so clear the elections will be stolen!

Fighting Bainimarama anonymously is a hell of a lot more honourable than what you're doing, which is to seek publicity for yourself even as you masipolo the regime.

Laisenia Qarase was a board member of FHL, and was also a board member and chairman of more than one dozen government and statutory bodies. He was also the chief business and financial advisor to the FAB and Great Council of Chiefs and was one of the brains behind the organisation, operation and logistics of FHL. A close associate of Laisenia Qarase, and Chief Executive of FHL, Sitiveni Weleilakeba, also secured a loan of FJ$120,000 from the FDB on 17 March 1992 to buy FHL shares for FJ$150,000 (Office of Registrar of Companies 1997). Qarase also approved an FDB loan for his brother to purchase one of Qarase’s properties, originally purchased via an FDB mortgage (Fiji Times, 23 December 1992).

So Qarase was no saint. He dipped his hand into the cookie jar too.

Within two years of its beginning, EIMCOL began to go through a series of crises, which led to its collapse. On 31 December 1991, the General Manager was sacked and was replaced. In late 1992 three EIMCOL supermarkets (Natokawaqa, Navua and Bureta Street)26 were closed, and on 17 September 1993, the remaining six supermarkets were sold to the store managers, despite the FDB’s initial promise that ownership would not be transferred until satisfactory payment of the loans had been made. The supermarkets were sold at prices that were far above the original prices. By 1996, all the EIMCOL supermarkets had been sold and EIMCOL as a commercial project collapsed. It threatened to bring down the FDB’s pro-indigenous Fijian commercial program and, more importantly, given its high profile as a “model” for indigenous Fijian business, it was a major political blow to the government’s affirmative action program. This, together with other factors, contributed to the forced resignation of Mr. Qarase as Managing Director of the FDB in 1997.2

In another case, Vensalisi Investment Limited (owned by the then Director of Public Prosecution and later Solicitor General, High Court Judge and diplomat, and also a board member of FHL) secured a loan of FJ$64,000 by debenture from the FDB to buy FJ$80,000 worth of shares from Fijian Holdings. This was just three months after the registration of the company (Registered Number 9613) on 6 February 1992. The FDB also provided Q-Ten Investments Ltd., a company owned by its own Managing Director, Laisenia Qarase (who was, we may recall, author of the Ten Year Plan), with two separate loans: one for FJ$112,400 on 2 August 1990, and the other for FJ$353,217.86 on 22 May 1992, using the same property as mortgage.13 Q-Ten Investments Limited used some of the money to buy FJ$200,000 worth of shares from the FHL (Korovulavula 1994).

Qarase also used his privileged position to secure a loan of FJ$150,000 from the FDB for Mavana Investments Limited, a tikina company of which he was director and a shareholder. The loan was secured on 24 June 1992. This was a few days before the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Filipe Bole (a traditional kinsman of Qarase), received a loan of FJ$81,000 from the FDB on 2 July 1992 for Mualevu Tikina Holdings, a tikina company for which he was director and shareholder. Eight days later, the former Minister of Justice, Qoriniasi Bale, secured a loan of FJ$81,000 from the FDB for his Nabuabua Holdings. Mr Bale was later deregistered as a lawyer for defrauding clients of thousands of dollars

Provincial investment had two fundamentally flawed assumptions. The first was the belief that the interest of the vanua or community directly translated into the interests of the individuals (tamata yadudua). Communal interest was symbolised in the chiefly authority. Thus, to provide generously to the community coffers was an expression of selflessness and communal solidarity. On the other hand, there was veiled psychological coercion: not being generous (dau solisoli) to communal soli (fund-raising) was considered “un-chiefly” (tawa vakaturaga) and “un-Fijian” (tawa vakaitaukei). At worst, there was the veiled threat of being punished by the supernatural mana of the vanua and turaga (chiefs) through disease or mishap. Thus, this ideological mystification, which underscored communal hegemony, made it easy for chiefs, bureaucrats and politicians to extract capital from indigenous Fijian peasants and urban work

It is disgraceful and very shortsighted, how the powers of this illegal regime and their supporters are compromising the legal system as though it belongs to them. To this extent they are not subject or accountable to the law for their actions. We are witnessing how power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

@ Provincial Investment.

The Indigenous culture and tradition as in any modern society is currently going through challenging times. Look at the indigenous people of Australia, past Labor, Liberal and Coalition governments have tried their best to entice them into mainstream commercial sectors BUT it has not worked till to date because of the simple reason that Fijians DOT NOT value MONEY like the Ki IDIA and KAI Jaina or Kai VALAGI or HALF Kasi.

Fiji has NOT been a settler colony like Australia, New Zealand and Canada and even the US.

The Kawa i Tuakei does not have any external measurement because we live in a communal society but changes are taking bits shape slowly and individualism which is the medium of destruction to all indigenous cultures if it is not managed properly will be a major threat to our cultural identity and inheritance especially the ownership of our natural resources which VULAGIS have been fighting to access and make their BILLIONS since 1874.


I understand there are ONLY a few KAI VITI (well educated) who are with the Regime because you are already part of the REGIME and have earned good money from this illegal and murderous regime but remember at the end of the day YOU ARE STILL A KAI VITI.

Some one have been highlighting the meager amount that have been spent for indigenous business BUT this is nothing compared to the amount only abused by Bainimarama. What about the under table deals (with the absent of Parliament) with the Chinese Companies, All these information is coming i8n from the civil servants and military.

Now the corrupt cases about Qarase/Mara etc were dealt with by the legal system and the current problem of corruption will never be investigated fairly because the current legal system is controlled by Khaihum.

I will say so what if the money wasted on indigenous business initiatives because 90% of this money may be derived from the indigenous resources.

In response to public criticism about conflict of interest, FDB General Manager Qarase said that all his loan applications were dealt with “strictly in accordance with the firm policies and practice of the bank” (Fiji Times, 21 December 1992). This did not lessen the barrage of criticism, well summed up by the Fiji Times editorial of 23 December 1992:

But when you take a hard look at how Fijian Holdings Limited sold those shares last year to certain Fijian individuals and Fijian-owned companies, you must admit there’s something not quite right about it...As it happened they (ordinary Fijians) lost out on a chance to boost their earning power because Fijian Holdings Limited didn’t give them much of a chance to take up its offer to sell them shares...The money that got the company off the ground was public money. [T]he haste in which they were sought and finalised was rather unseeingly, involving mostly a small coterie of insiders, people working in financial institutions and bankers whose paths often cross in their line of work. (Fiji Times, 23 December 1992).

It was clear that it was rather difficult to see how investments by the NLTB, FAB and provinces could directly translate into the advancement of indigenous Fijian commercial life in material terms. By locking capital ownership within the communal institutions, under the mythological rhetoric of vanua ownership, there was very little chance of benefits “trickling down” to ordinary indigenous Fijians in ways that would improve their living standard. At the same time, as we have seen, the real individual beneficiaries of FHL private investment have been well-connected individuals using their knowledge of the financial market and official authority to monopolise the private shares. So the dilemma of FHL as the government’s flagship affirmative action program was that it simply reproduced the communal system through communal capitalism and reinforced inequality by facilitating the dominant shares of a few indigenous elites. The situation was even more worrying when we consider the fact that in the Ten Year Plan there was an ambitious recommendation to “apply the FHL model in the forestry, fisheries, tourism and television sectors” (Qarase 1995: 2). In the next section we discuss other forms of economic affirmative action proposals prescribed by the Nine Points Plan and how they have been implemented.

However, as a result of the controversies, some of the individual investors sold their shares. Despite all these problems, FHL grew to become one of the biggest companies in Fiji, so that by 2008 it had assets totalling FJ$260.8 million and this increased by 13% to FJ$299.9 million in 2009 (Fijian Holdings Limited 2010). FHL investment ranges from 0.2% to 100% equity in companies, in a variety of areas.

After the coup in 2006 and the formation of the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC), investigation into the affairs of Fijian Holdings was launched and Qarase was charged, convicted and jailed for 12 months for corruption on 13 August 2012.

It is good you are reminding all of Fiji on the Qarase case and how it concluded with the action of FICAC and the ultimate conviction of Qarase.

MY question to you.

1. will the same FICAC and Judiciary lay charge and convict Bainimarama of Treason.

22. Will the same FICAC and Judiciary lay charge and convict on the multitudes of cases against this Regime?


If you can not answer this question you are one of them paid by the Regime to convince the public that Qarase and Chaudary are corrupt leaders.

Stop lying to the people of Fiji so that you can manupulate their minds to vote for Bai.

USP Vice Chancellor and ethics said...

The public would have been pleased to hear the appeal by the USP Vice Chancellor (Professor Rajesh Chandra) to the USP graduands to make “an unshakable commitment to having high ethical standards in everything they did” (The Fiji Times, 12 April, 2014).

The Chairman of USP Council (Mr Ikbal Janif) has also made such praiseworthy calls over the years as Chairman and Acting Chairman of USP Council.

In the interests of transparency, good governance and accountability (all part of USP’s Mission and Vision statements) could the USP Vice Chancellor and the Chairman of USP Council therefore inform the USP Member Governments, the tax-payers of Fiji and the USP region, what exactly were the circumstances which led to the recent resignation of Professor Susan Kelly (Deputy Vice Chancellor at USP), at great financial cost to the University and taxpayers?

What is Prof. Narsey trying to insinuate here?

Prof. Kelly's term ended in November. She could have resigned for any number of reasons, many of them personal. They needn't have had anything to do with the corruption of the present administration, its preferential hiring practices, its abandonment of acædemic standards, its betrayal of acædemic freedom, its masipolo of the dictatorship, professional jealousy, etc.

Prof. Kelly never explained her resignation, but USP made a point to announce that she was leaving it "in good standing". We don't know that the school would have given a negative assessment instead, had Prof. Kelly explained why she left. It might be wrong to read too much into her sphinx-like silence.

HOW USP VC RAJESH CHANDRA LOWERED STATUS OF ACADEMIC EDUCATION IN THE REGION said...

USP VC and 'President' Rajesh Chandra operates like a Mafia Don, appointing cronies to key positions, whether qualified or not, paying off departing staff to buy their silence, and fostering a culture of intimidation and bullying in which his deputy Esther Williams was the 'hit-man'.

The pretentious and arrogant Rajesh Chandra will do doing anything and sacrifice anyone to make himself look good and give the impression that he leaves behind a great legacy. In reality he will leave behind a rotten legacy.

This regime slurper slowed USP's progress by as much as two decades when he specifically asked USP member countries to reduce their allocation to USP. Which VC worth his salt would ask for a reduced budget for tertiary education?

Rajesh makes himself look like a hero in front of pacific governments by asking for less money bit its staff who suffer the brunt of the cuts in the firm of extra workloads and denial of pay rises. Students have ti do with inferior facilitates.

Self-serving Rajesh Chandra diminished the standing and priority of academic education in the region.

USP is a huge facade and at the top sits the dumb maharajah with no clothes, Rajesh Chandra, full of self-importance despite the epic screw up he has perpetuated.

VC has instructed in an all staff email that no one should complain to the USP Council. He has stated that there are "internal procures" to follow and no one should write to public or to council! How long will the region suffer under this dictator!

THE ROT AT USP said...

There is no such thing as internal processes here at USP. VC Rajesh Chandra is continuously interfering to manipulate so-called internal processes to appoint friends like ForumSec reject Jai Karan as development manager, promote Angela Jokhan associate professor and give Esther Williams a cushy job after her retirement. If USP follows internal processes none of these crony appointments would have been made. The VC just talks about internal processes but uses it like toilet paper. He should stuff his internal processes.

Rajesh Chandra's record as USP VC said...

*Downgraded regional government budget allocation for tertiary education;
*Stunted USP's growth by up to 20 years by volunteering to reduce budget;
*Betrayed academic freedom;
*Sold out USP staff;
*Let down UP students;
*Lowered the standard academic education;
*Damaged USP's reputation through his closeness with Fiji regime:
*Surrendered USP's autonomy to Sayed-Khaiyum and Bainimarama;
*Circumvented procedures to make dubious appointments/promotions based on nepotism;
*Engendered culture of bullying/intimidation, especially by senior staff against junior staff;
*Demoralised staff with self-aggrandisement and favouritism;

But in his head, this self-serving VC thinks he is the greatest gift to USP, boasting about how hard he works, but never acknowledging the work of others.

Also forgetting he is well compensated for his 'hard work', with big fat salary, not to mention a nice car and palatial home, all at tax payers' expense.

But delivering nothing much in return, except to cronies like Angela Jokhan, Esther Williams and Jai Karan: at best mediocre staff enjoying top salaries and underserved promotions.

Editor,
In his article 'Treading in Moses' footsteps: Fiji's Fourth Constitution' (constitutionnet, 30 Sept 2013) Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi the former Vice President Of the Republic of Fiji and a traditional chief and lawyer by profession tells us all the developments that have been put in place by the Bainimarama government "only allow for cautious optimism".
But a short six months later all that has changed. We can now be completely optimistic because Fiji's UN representative Peter Thomson has declared everything is in order and the Fiji Times editorial (FT 24/4) has endorsed that position.
Time will tell whether the later view was justified.
sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

@USP VC Rajesh Chandra's record, it makes appalling reading because the academic sector is so important. Why are staff and students putting with this pretender? They should demand changes.

"Cautious optimisim" has now given way in Fiji to rampant despair.

All workers from Fiji should not vote for Voreqe and his party of liars. This gang only for the rich and not the hard working people of this country. Everything they said they would do for the workers are all lies. The Fiji Sun is propagating lies of the regime to try and win the hearts of the people

"" This gang only for the rich and not the hard working people of this country. ""

So the rich are not hard working?

Ha Ha Ha.................

Obviously you are not someone that has slaved away at making a good living that jealous people like you assume came from being lazy.

I suspect you will find that 95% of the rich work as hard as you do.
