Activist: RFMF can't silence youth who've been beaten and tortured

How convenient. Just as political parties get publicity over the naming of their candidates and their policies, the head of the RFMF is trotted out to remind everyone the army is ready to beat and torture citizens if they challenge the regime.

RFMF commander, Mosese Tikoitgoa, has reportedly told the Sydney Morning Herald the army will respect the result of the September 17 election but will not tolerate an elected government rewriting the regime's 2013 Constitution.

No justice: Victim Sakiusa Rabaka.
Clearly a threat to the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA), which has promised a judicial review of the regime's Constitution, Tikoitoga admits the army has beaten and tortured citizens and will step in to keep 'civil order' after September if it has to.

SODELPA says there is no basis for Tikoitoga's threats, with  youth president, Pita Waqavonovono, citing wide support for the review.


"In the communities I've visited, people are asking for the 2013 Constitution to be changed. They were not part of the process and within the document are mechanisms that entrench the rule of the gun or the coup culture." 



Tikoitoga's admission this week citizens have been beaten and tortured follows the airing on Australian television last week the story of Fiji human rights activist, Virisila Buadromo, being taken to the barracks in 2006, just after Bainimarama seized control in December. (see earlier C4.5 story).


He told the Sydney Morning Herald: “But a lot of these people were actually trying to instigate violence by creating anti-government movements or militant groups.


“They were talking on the radio and so on … If you let them continue to have a voice, you create a potentially dangerous environment. So it was the lesser of two devils.”


Waqavonovono was one of the four attacked that Christmas Eve with Virisila Buadromo and he says people owe it to themselves - and to those who've died at the hands of the regime - to keep speaking up, despite the threats.


"Sakiusa Rabaka's voice and the voice of many young people who were beaten and tortured at various military installations will not be silenced. 


"At this important period of our re-democratisation process, Tikoitonga's reminder to Bainimarama's opposition of the torture and abuses is a deliberate attempt to strike fear in the hearts of Fiji citizens."



Waqavonovono says the United Nations and foreign embassies also need to investigate Tikoitoga's claims the RFMF was merely keeping order.


"Since 2000, we the people, have asked for the explanations of the murder's of CRW Soldiers, especially those that had no part to play in the 2000 mutiny. 


"Former Fiji Police Commissioner Andrew Hughes had opened a investigation on fraud and murder on Frank Bainimarama and his close allies. 


"A arrest warrant was issued for Bainimarama. This was the reason for the Coup in 2006, hidden under the guise of ending corruption and so-called racist policies."


UFDF spokesperson and SODELPA nominee, Mick Beddoes, says it's time people stopped being intimidated.


"The only instability in Fiji back in 2006 was the military and any act of militancy was by the military itself. Their target was of course innocent civilians courageous enough to demonstrate for democracy."


Dictators: Bainimarama and Yudhoyono
SODELPA party leader, Ro Teimumu Kepa, has meanwhile expressed solidarity with the people of West Papua, following the visit of Indonesia's president,  Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, to Suva. Kepa denounced the expensive pageant that was put on for the president saying her party would formalise its support for West Papua to break free from Indonesia's colonial rule in its upcoming manifesto.

  1. We all do hope General Tikoitoga words were misconstrued by the oversea press.

    Should SODELPA manage to just pip slight across the at the pools of 17 09 14, would they then invite FF Party for a "coalition" in zest for stability?..then slowly climatize the constitutional change in that power sharing mode? or tooth for tooth?

    Just that right now the sum arithmetic does not favor the Retired Admiral.

    ..and my tauvu from Kiuva is loosing a lot of sleep and calling the General at delainabua in one of those sleepless night...may be.

    Of course, with decent compensations for lives lost and repealing of certain draconian elements of the constitution.

  7. Bye bye Dr Matthew Thompson. You are going the way of Marc Edge out the back door. Who do you think you are coming to Fiji and speaking in this way. You have no idea about the threats that Fiji faced in 2000 and 2006. You have no idea how most Fijians support the military for taking a tough line against trouble makers. What gives you the right to speak out like this? You are employed to teach journalism at USP not get involved in politics. Prepare to get your white ass kicked.

  8. President and Vunivalu of Bau Ratu Epeli Nailatikau should support Commander Tikoitoga and stop SODELPA, FLP or any government from trying to Review our Constitution. Because Fiji is so prosperous and every one is happy with the prices of goods and services so lets keep it that way. Vote for Fiji First!

  12. Tikoitoga should learn the role of the military in a democratic government, and not sound like the former army commander in 2006.
    Tikoitoga should know that in great democracies of the world, the army boss, never utters a political statement, nor threatens the government with his public view of the political situation of the country.
    When are we going to be educated on things to be done and not to be done?
    With this kinds of threats, the COMPOL should seriously think of arresting him for his seditous comments.
    If this had been an ordinary citizen, he would have been taken to the barracks during a night raid.

Is coup 4.5 re-defining the meaning of a coup? 1987, 2000 and 2006 coups all had their share of beatings and killings so lets not take on a high moral ground on 2006 coup and technicolour all the other past coups.

    In 87 even that "coup" word were totally foreign!!!on top of that we still in our pure traditional bond what ever comes our way is always accepted.
    2000 the instigators of that 87 used a civilian as a frontman.
    In here it roll out tobe in two fold.
    2006 the instigators themselves tell the whole world that it's the Mataivalu were behind them all.

    [No offence intended to ASK] BUT IT HAS PROPERED,Fiji is blessed by God with immeasureable rainfall,rich and fertile soils,friendly neighbours [except ahem NZ and Aust]If we coud utilise all land that has been breeding mosquitoes we could reap the benefits in monetary terms.The Wetern Division and North are the prosperous Divisions in Fiji ;Question: Why? Because they have fully utilised their land for cane and other agricultural farming so if the Central and Eastern Divisions also 'put in' to be on the same level then we would reap the benefits,more jobs created,wealth for farmers and landowner and chiefs and for Fiji as a whole.FOR THE RECORD THERE WASNT NAY COUP IN 2006,THE PRESIDENT DISSOLVED PARLIAMENT AS IS WITHIN HIS POWERS.AMAN SINGH IS SAYING THAT GOVT MACHINERY HAS STOPPED AND NOT WORKING ,MY FRIEND THEY ARE ALL FUNCTIONING WELL AND PROPER,THE JUDICIARY,CABINET,FIRCA,PORTS, AIRPORTS ETC ALL FUNCTIONING FULL STEAM AHEAD.When Noah built his Ark people called him names and thought that he has lost his marbles, but we all know what happened when it began to rain.The PM and Govt is building An Ark for Fiji so lets put our hands together and help them before it begins raining.God Bless the Govt and its leaders,God bless Sodelpa and other parties and its leaders lets move towards a prosperous Fiji,together we can.

He may have relinquished command of the Armed Forces, but he is still holding on tightly to the Armory keys. That guy got skills, i tell ya. He is not as stupid as he looks.Frank, i gotta ask ya...are you planning on staging another coup if...I'm saying...if...you "LOSE" these elections? (wink, wink). Whoa....easy, easy...Frank. Im just asking. No need to get your panties all in a bind. Im juat asking. In the meantime, why is it taking so long for you to release your financial status? I know your "financial advisor", Bur Nano is pretty old and her eyesight may be failing and shit, or she might be so old school that she uses an abacus to do calculations and shit, but come on, dude....September is like...right around the corner. Its like next week. Get her a calculator or something. Frank, you know I dont blame you for what you're doing. They all did the same thing in one way or another. Ripping the country off and shit. It comes with power.....GREED. But, damn Frankie...you do it on a massive scale. Let me, let me ask you something, Frank. I think the main reason why you havent released your tax returns yet is because you dont want Mary to know how much you made last year. Am i right, Frank? Tell the truth, Frank. You cant tell the truth because..YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH! Sorry, i got carried away again, Frank. Its that damn movie. Frank, who is really running things? Is it you or what'a his face? Because if you arent running things, then you should not be getting paid. You know..."an honest days pay for an honest days work". Im just saying.

  39. EyeArse and Bainimarama are simply moronic, in their reasoning and views. We deserve better leaders.

    "Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum characteristically continues to give moronic, self-deluding answers to difficult questions. When asked about the well-publicised videos of police brutality seen across the world, he says: ‘You know, police brutality is not confined to Fiji. I’ve got a report at home about Aboriginal deaths in custody. Does that justify what happened in Fiji? Why compare yourself with the worst of another country?"

    And then there is Rear-Admiral Bainimarama. Asked about NFP leader Biman Prasad’s invitation to him for a debate on important social and economic issues facing the nation, he dodges the issue completely and relapses into his old habits. ‘He’s an Indian, without me he wouldn’t even be sticking around.’ And here I was fooled into believing that everyone was a ‘Fijian’ these days.

    Be real! Opinion polls are sometimes not the best indicator for responses to a question. You would not doubt agree with me that polls are controlled and in many cases premeditated to appease those who would later claim to have a fair idea of the masses pulse.

    Look at our demography from ethic distribution and varied socio economic groupings coupled by urban drift and compounded by voter “discrepancies” of postal votes from the Diaspora, serviceman overseas, naturalized citizen voters like investors from China, Indian and extended families voter block etc

    Oh..and do not forget that it is probably the first time ALL political parties have a true multiracial lineup of candidates respectively. Candidates who respectively commands their own loyal supporters, family, vanua and friends connections and would of course travel the not so easy road to the polling booth with them!

    Has the Admiral guaranteed an easy road to be PM after voter count? Indication are he is loosing ground and loosing in fast. The reality is obviously his popularity has diminished..but...but...intel gurus around him like you are just too frightened to let him know the truth. Of course, they want to fuel deception that all is well in the Admiral sinking ship..are you one of his advisor Dokeda Vici?

    I was going to do a bit arithmetic with you and weight in the formulas above...but...bu...you sound like you know the many ways to add, divide, subtract and cajole to count to 50.

    Of course, I will return to knitting, in fact many of us have been for a very long time in one way or another assist knitting the virtues fabrics of our beloved society.

    The fight for West Papua had been there well before the illegal regime illegally came to power.
    The struggle had been part of all the pacific countries move towards independence in the late 60s and 70s.
    It seems that some of us in the pacific are in the dark of what is happening.
    The Indonesian embassy in Fiji is well aware of our stance, but the country remains adamant.
    This is the only regime in Fiji which has worked too close with that country while ignoring the plights of Wet Papuans

They were hired to teach, not destabilise USP by poking their noses in the political affairs of the country. They are new to Fiji. They have no idea what they are getting into.

    With due respect "the two USP journalism professors" have done "the right thing" as journalist and did a bit of commentary on our domestic political affairs.

    As Citizens of the global village who believe in basic human rights, like many of us including you Sir/Madam all abhor threats to the basic freedom of speech and human right and decency.

    They have done :the right thing", unlike many of us who do not have the balls to do the right thing publicly!

    Oh..do not forget that read widely on Fiji and the Regions politics before they even applied for their present jobs...may be as far back in history to the Cakobau Coup pre-independence!

    Also,General Tikoitoga is only responsible for all things that happen during his watch! Best person to ask is Amdiral Bainimarama, Ratu Mara, General Driti and General Aziz....

    Now,Give the kid General Tikoitoga a chance to perform his duties truthfully as he now promises the world!

  58. In Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum's spacious office overlooking Suva Harbour, I ask him about footage that surfaced last year of police beating and torturing two prisoners. The prime minister's right-hand man - and the author of hundreds of repressive decrees which will remain in force after the election - looks pained. "You know," he observes, "police brutality is not confined to Fiji. I've got a report at home about Aboriginal deaths in custody."

    Ruthless, authoritarian, vindictive - these are some of the politer words used about the attorney-general, who performs the day-to-day business of governing while Bainimarama swans around the islands and hobnobs with new allies, including the Chinese. Editors dread a phone call from Sayed-Khaiyum, who is rarely seen without bodyguards in tow. "One holds his coat, another his bottle of water, another his files," claims one local.

    For all their talk of transparency and accountability, he and Bainimarama - who cited rampant corruption as one reason for his coup - refuse to divulge their salaries. It's been years since an auditor-general's report was published, and when I ask Fijians whether the government heeds its own anti-graft message, they guffaw. Rumours of dodgy tenders, foreign bank accounts and luxury properties.It was, surely, on merit alone that the dictator's daughter got her plum Sports Council job and his brother-in-law was given a ministry to run after being jailed for manslaughter.

    USP Journalism academics have bravely spoken out against torture by Bainimarama regime. Unfortunately USP supports torture and deprivation of human rights, as evidenced by the USP VC Rajesh Chandra's staunch support for the regime.

    USP is always laying out the red carpet for Bainimarama and Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. VC Rajesh Chandra spends a fair bit of USP funds organising traditional welcome for the two and even getting students to garland them. Rajesh Chandra and USP have played a key role in legitimising this regime. I won't be surprised if the two professors are sent packing for their outspokenness.

  71. Why is Semi Meo back here again?

    Ths is the same regime tool who told us for YEARS not to rock the regime's boat but instead wait for free and fair elections in 2014.

    Does it now look as though the Khaiyum-organised elections will be free and fair?

    Anyone who disagreed with him, he called a "nameless, faceless cyberbully," just because, unlike him, most of us are not publicity hounds. Semi had dreams of glory. He was going to return triumphantly to Fiji to debate the dictator and then, as folk hero, be swept into the PM office by popular acclamation.

    Not bad for a Brisbane mall janitor.

    But, one day along came someone who called himself "Nameless, Faceless Cyberbully," and he openly challenged Semi Meo. If the 2014 elections were free and fair, NFCB would never more blog on C4.5. But if the elections were NOT free and fair, then Semi Meo was to cease blogging on this website.

    At once, Semi Meo was like a punctured hot air balloon, with much wiggling and wriggling, spluttering and blowing. Phew!

    He tried like hell to avoid being held accountable for his words. As the Future Saviour of Fiji, he didn't want his vaulting political ambitions to be ransomed to Bainimarama's intentions. Never mind that that is exactly what he was doing to Fiji's future.

    So, now that it's so clear that we should have simply acted, instead of following Semi Meo's advice by waiting and waiting for years for what we can now see clearly will be anything BUT a free and fair election, I ask again: why is Semi Meo back?

    Inadequate bus services have forced these students to walk home from school. Picture SALASEINI MOCEIWAI

    WALKING home after school for about two hours is becoming a daily struggle for about 100 students in the Seaqaqa District in Macuata as a result of lack of transport.

    The situation is worrying parents who claim their children sometimes reach home after 6pm.

    The students from Vucitoka Settlement, Natua, Tadradave Forestry Station and Navesidrua Village have no choice but to walk.

    Speaking on behalf of the parents at the recent Macuata Provincial Council meeting, district representative Sailosi Turaga said they had made requests to authorities responsible for a school bus or a rural service licensed vehicle to service the area at least in the afternoon.

    "When the buses travelling from Labasa reach Seaqaqa, it's usually full and when this happens, students have no other choice but to walk," he said.

    This is an illegal regime who have put themselves into power. The illegal 2013 constitution has been pushed on the people.
    Atleast the people should be proud of these two academics to speak on behalf of the people of Fiji.
    Our academics the likes of Rajesh Chandra, Ganesh Chand should learn from these academics moral values if they have any and speak the truth.
    The people have NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

Simply because fiji is on the right path and the chiefly system on the sidelines ( where it should be , chiefs should be given respect and symbolic power , not the right to intervene whenever an indian farts or an ant moves ). . Fact is Fijians have been given everything for decades and mugs say that they still need assistance and support albeit to expect handouts , gifts , everything on a platter !!!! Yeah right . You , yourselves have sold your islands to Americans , and other foreigners at a pittance ... And now complain ... One ratu who came to a meeting Aiyaz help in sydney wanted his freehold land back , when Aiyaz enquired as to what happened his reply was " oh I sold it for way too less " . That sums it up , you Fijians need to wake up !!!! Stop blaming the Indians for your problems . You are a population that is very lucky ( look at what happened to aboriginals , red Indians , many other indigenous populations ) that are extremely unlucky .... You guys own 90 plus per cent of the land ... You can go to FDB . Fijian affairs n get a loan for nothing !!!!

  98. 2 days ago I released the results of a survey I conducted on the Fiji Sun and the Fiji Times over the past 3 and a half months from April 1 to June 18 2014. Only radio New Zealand Intl called up for a comment. No local media responded or asked for clarification or carried the results.

    We covered 63% of both papers April issues, In May 74% of the Fiji Times and 81% of the Fiji Sun and In June 83% of the Fiji Sun and 89% of the Fiji Times for the 18 days.

    The results were as follows:-

    While the Fiji Times is generally more balanced in its reporting with 58% covering the Bainimarama regime over the total survey period, the Fiji Sun coverage of the regime has never dropped below 73%.

    The Opposition received just 26% coverage from the Fiji Sun and 36% from the Fiji Times, while the Independent candidate received 1% coverage from the Fiji Sun and 6% coverage from the Fiji Times.

    The full survey result will be on my website by tomorrow on http://www.mickbeddoes.com and anyone interested can look it up.

    Media Bias is definitely happening and organizations like the Fiji Sun have been breaching the Media Industry Code of Ethics on a daily basis without anyone in authority taking them to task. The Media decree is being applied ‘selectively’ against anyone who publishes an opposing view to the regime, while leaving regime friendly Media outlets to spin all the lies they want.

    I would like to call on all citizens of Fiji who want democracy to send a small but clear signal to the perpetrators of this abuse of our intelligence and ask that you demonstrate your anger in a real way and tell all your friends and relatives to boycott the Fiji Sun from now until the end of July.

    Do not search their online edition, do not place any advertisements with them, do not buy any Fiji Sun for the next 37 days.

    This is a small ‘individual’ protest that anyone can do and not be afraid of being found out by authorities. The collective impact on the paper will be ‘significant’ if we all boycott their paper for a month. Without a healthy circulation, the income will be affected.

    Now is the time to demonstrate our displeasure at those who aid and abet the wrong doers, and usurpers of democracy so lets demonstrate to them in a personal but very real way. NO MORE SUN!

    It's my understanding that the GCC has absolutely no direct role in Fiji's Political Arena, other than what I've just stated!

  106. @7.47pm ...Fijians have the right to determine their destiny in their country. Indians have been farting for too long over Fijian land so it is about time we have it back Thank you!. The Girmitiyas were brought in to labour under colonial rule therefore success was gained through colonial rule rather than through the Girmitiyas and their descendants. Fijians have given their choice land for development , their contribution to the success of a nation. Could we have lived without Indians? ,certainly so. Cannibalism became a thing of the past because of christianity, not hinduism. I am sorry! Sadly so, we are up in arms because we have been taken for a ride, by rogue politicians, and the military. There are some well meaning Indians who will not denounce Fijians for who they are and accept the differences in value systems and way of life.Might I say there if you can't handle the heat, then I beg you to find somehwere else to go..probably back to your motherland, where you can immerse yourself into a caste that will accept you as you are.
    Ypur story about a Ratu requesting ASK on the return of his freehold land is laughable. You made that up, in an attempt to discredit Fijians. Mind you, your story is the pinnacle of Indo-fijian mentality - LIARS. Ratu's will never approach an Indian regarding their land. C'mon, we are not that stupid!
    Be thankful of what you have been given, otherwise piss off and let others enjoy a piece of paradise!

  113. Ro Teimumu, we agree: Indons out of West Papua. Normally I would say we should butt out, but it's high time Jakarta paid for supporting our captors and helping them to oppress us.

    Please also repudiate the illegal debts incurred by the regime. The foreign lenders all knew this regime was unlawful, but they made the loans anyway. The regime had no right to saddle our nation with so much long-term debt just to try to buy our votes.

    Finally, please recognise Taipei. Beijing has been as close to the regime as teeth and gums, to borrow their phrase. Beijing has been a major coup regime ennabler. It has exploited our situation to make criminal and economic inroads. There must be consequences to such perfidy.

  114. God never chose Bainimarama to be the leader of this nation. Bainimarama chose himself.

    Obviously, God ALLOWED Bainimarama to seize power. But that's a very different matter.

    God also allowed the Great Flood, the destruction of the Temple, the Jewish diaspora, the Holocaust. That doesn't mean He endorsed these things. He allowed them, and in the process He refined His church.

    I think He is even now trying to refine the people of Fiji. Revival in Fiji is a beautiful prospect. It can begin even under Bainimarama. But Fiji can never be wholly cleansed as long as it is under his unrighteous leadership.

    Aiyuz may also direct that all public electoral notices be only through his brother’s electronic media house and print media outlet be to the Fiji Sun. We lose! Bainimara/Aiyuz wins..

    What we should be concentrating on are alternative media to reach the masses with liberating campaign messages. We win. Bainimara/Aiyuz loses!

    Better still, all major political parties (other then FFP) contract a full page each every issue on the Sun...taking the fight to FFP’s domain! We win! Bainimara/Aiyuz loses!

    You gave itaukei a lesson that they hardly swallow that is your disrespectful behaviuor towards who they are!!

    What you did will go down in their history book and the replica will be far worse than you imagine.

    Now since you mention a Ratu[7:47pm 24/6] came over to you for assistance or whatever, now read and swallow this :there was also a Ratu who once said that "Na kai Idia vinaka ga na kai India sa mate"

    Their Ratus word came alive the day you abolished their chiefly council.

    Today now you reading this 99 n 4.5% itaukei will vote SODELPA for them to restored their heritage,their roots,their history,their culture,their identity and tradition.

    Do not worry because this just what normally happens and it is nothing new.

  119. Bainimaram is NOT fit to be a leader of a new democratic Fiji.

    He is too dirty right now as there are many many things that need to be revealed and the MOST IMPORTANT ONE IS THAT HE IS STILL UNDER INVESTIGATED FOR THE BRUTAL MUDER OF THE CRW SOLDIERS. HE IS THE ONE THAT GAVE THE ORDER AND ALL THE SOLDIERS KNOW THAT. LOOK AT TE PREVIOUS POSTINGS IN THIS BLOG WHERE SOLDIERS WERE TRYING TO JUSTIFY THEIR ACTIONS.

  123. @Anon 7.47pm and 1.33am Sadly both of you seem to have missed the big picture 7.47pm first all Indians should respect the culture and traditions of the Fijians as the land is there spiritual partner.I made my first trip to India last year for work purposes upon exiting the airport looking around this chaotic place I said to the person next to me thank god I was born in Fiji.Indians have worked hard in Fiji upon every adversity that was in front of them, If we all can remember after the Independence university entrance was much easier for a Fijian Indigenous student and a Ethnic Fijian Indian student, The government jobs were generally favored towards the Indigenous population, even after the 87 and 2000 coups where they were tormented racially and violently the Indian population still prospered.Many Indians have been moving overseas since the 70's where again they have flourished 80% of the Fiji Indian population overseas and the children are very successful, living and doing great things , many have opened businesses, have great trade and white collar positions...but they will all agree to one thing and that is Home is Fiji.I don't believe the chiefly system should ever be abolished but I do believe it has no part to play in Modern politics or Economics, It has served its purpose and no longer relevant in urban life,it should always remain in rural society. I don't believe that a Ratu would have gone and asked for his land from an Indian but I can believe that he did sell his land well under the value.

    Anon 1.33am(Wow you stayed up late, love the determination)Fiji did prosper under the British rule but not as well as it did on its own from the 70s till the late 90's.Britain wasn't doing Fiji any favors they were in it for their own gains there concern was never the Fijians or the Indians just their own profit margin.Yes Fiji would have lived without the Indians but there is no way the economy would have been driven as good without them. As a choice for Indians now to leave Fiji for any other country I think many are happy there right now and India is a place which just a distant memory.

    Speaking for my self, I am of Indian heritage its does not make me an Indian I was born a Hindu I will die one too that does not stop me from going to a church or a mosque or a synagogue, as far as I am concern my motherland is Fiji I was born in Fiji so that makes me a Kai viti not a Kai inda and as far as religion goes I believe in Fiji all sides have being using religion differences to cause stereotyping and hatred....There is only one god and Men created religion.

  129. Semi Meo, why are you back? You were not missed.

    That's because your remarks seldom add anything, except confusion, perhaps.

    Here you are, for example, criticising the poster at 8:23 AM for warped logic, bush theology, worshipping Bainimarama, etc. Did you even bother to read the posting at 8:23? How in the world did you reach the conclusion that the poster worshipped Bainimarama, when, in fact, he stated that Bainimarama was NOT chosen by God, and Fiji can never be clensed under Bainimarama's unrighteous leadership!?

    Then next you try to undercut Mick Beddoes' call for a boycott of the Fiji Sun by offering the utterly asinine suggestion that the opposition parties should instead financially support the Sun by paying for daily, full-page advertisements.

    Whenever anyone in the opposition tries to organise anything, depend on Semi Meo to throw cold water on the idea.

    Some have said that you're a tool of the regime. I quite agree. The only question has been whether you're a witting tool or an unwitting tool. In the end, both sides compromised behind the consensus view that you're a HALFWITting tool.

  132. I will say one thing very very clearly. In 50 years from now Fiji will still be the same shit hole it has always been unless we dramatically change our thinking Yes the people are generally good and helpful and have a smile on their faces blah blah blah but i find 90% of the population plain dumb who are filled with prejudice and a very narrow vision of reality which is usually shaped by archaic culture and religious upbringing. While the rest of the world is talking about extending human life to 200 years exploring Mars, driver less cars etc we are still arguing about who's fucking Indian, Fijian or should we restore the GCC and every other trivial bullshit that matters not in our daily lives. We live in a world that is changing as quickly as we can imagine it and at the same time we are screwing our planet beyond redemption. At this rate their wont be a Fiji to fight over unless we do something about it. The only hope we have as a country is to Unite as one people find the right people to lead us and fix our trivial day to problems quickly so that we can deal with the bigger problems which threaten to annihilate us as a species on this planet. Frankly most of us more liberal folks are sick of the small minded crap being debated on this blog. I ask of you one question. Imagine yourself in an accident in need of blood. Will you care who's blood it is if it will save your life. Will it matter which race the blood will come from.
    For most sane people the answer will be no it will not matter. If your answer is contrary to this you should be in a mental institution.Kapish.

  135. The comment by the Indonesian embassy in Suva that the West Papua's issue is an internal one, does not hold water.

    Here is a society of indigenous peoples who have been refused to be granted their own freedom, to determine their own resources, and to govern themselves, not for a few years but for decades.
    West Papua does not need Indonesia, but Indonesia holds on tight to West Papua.
    Something different from the Fiji and Rotuma relations.
    The Indonesian Ambassador should ask his president to grant freedom to West Papua, 40 years after Fiji was granted independence from its colonial power, and the rest of pacific states.
    The UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples 2007, states clearly what is needed for communities like West Papua. This is a unique community of people with unique languages from its colonizer, different culture, different beliefs, different faith, they resemble more PNG features than Indonesia.
    West Papua freedom fighters over the decades have faced all that one can think about in their struggle to free their people, and they need NGOS, civil societies in Fiji and a legal government to pursue their plight.
    Let's fight on for West Papua, as it is not an internal matter, but an international concern towards the voice of our brothers/sisters which have been kept away for too long.

WE SHOULD THANK THE GOVT FOR DOING AWAY WITH SCHOOL FEES AND BUS FARES TO ENABLE THOSE KIDS WHO LIVE IN THE MANGROVE SWAMPS TO HAVE AN EDUCATION, TO FREE THEMSELVES FROM THE BONDAGE THEIR PARENTS BROUGHT THEM INTO.I THANK PM BAI AND THE GOVT FOR THIS.NO OTHER PARTY is concerned about our hapless people in society,the poor,the crippled,the mentally challenged. none of them have offered something for the poor like this Govt.The other parties are only hell bent on discussing issue already raised by this Govt. they havent got any of their own to offer to the people.WE NEED A GOVT THAT WILL BUILT HOUSES TO HOUSE THOSE IN THE MANGROVES.THERE ARE LOTS OF LAND AVAILABLE FOR THIS,PREFERBABLY THE HILLS TO BE USED FOR HOUSING AUTHORITY OR RENTAL BOARD TYPE COMPLEX WHILST THE VALLEYS ARE TO BE USED FOR FARMING.NO ONE SHOULD BE LIVING IN SQUATTER SHACKS,MANGROVE SWAMPS ETC.These people are humans and if we move now to afford them with houses we could reduce crime, drugs consumption,child hood pregnancies and other ills associated with Developing society.THIS GOVT IS OFFERING THE POOR FREE EDUCATION AND FREE TRANSPOT TO SCHOOL AND RETURN,GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO MAKE IT IN LIFE.WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO OFFER THE POOR SODELPA,LABOUR,NFP?? Most of you are only cursing,whinying and crying over trivial matters that arent neccessities of life,our poor neighbours are more worried about having a steady 3 meals a day than other trivial matters whinged about here.WE WHO HAVE LAPTOPS AND COMPUTERS ,WE WHO COULD AFFORD FULL 24 HR INTERNET COVERAGE SHOULD THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS GOVT IS DOING ABOUT THE LESS FORTUNATE IN OUR SOCIETY.The GCC has been around since colonial times are they relevant now,were they performing well what good have they done for Fiji,i-Taukei and immigrants, or was it useless meetings,with lots of yaqona and a warm bed with a young lass waiting beneath the overs after the meeting,abuse of land leases to purchase alcohol and wealth for themselves and a few causing many villagers to receive nothing and live in poverty.Lets ask Coup .5 to conduct an opinion poll on how many villagers have benefitted from the land lease scheme of past? I CAN TELL YOU THAT IT ONLY BENEFITTED THE CHIEFS,THE TLTB STAFF, MINISTERS OF GOVT PLUS BUSINESSMEN.It made sure that ordinary i-taukei receive very little or no lease money to enslave them in shackles of poverty.Then when Election nears they will twist and turn all words in the land laws to make those ordinary villagers believe that their village will end up in the sea,Fiji will be sold to India,all land will be stolen and reverted to freehold a nd what not. Let get out,go out of our comfort zones and assist
    Govt in helping the poor.Most of whom are -i-taukei.I WISH TO THANK THE CHIEFS AND THE ELDERS OF RA PROVINCE FOR TAKING THE BOLD STEP IN TRYING TO RAISE THE STANDARD OF LIVING IN THE PROVINCE.YOU HAVE STARTED THE BATTLE ON THE SPIRITUAL PLANE, MOVE NOW INTO THE PHYSICAL ARENA AND STRIKE NOW WHEN THE IRON IS HOT.AURIA SE WARA!

    My question to you is why are so many of these people living in these conditions when they have land already ? I would suggest unfortunately that many, especially the unemployable choose to live like this close to the main urban areas in the hope of easy pickings.

    There are of course many that do not have any land, can not find anyone to give or lease them land at a rate they could afford and these must be the priorities to help.

    As the Minister for Youth Commander Viliame Naupoto said during the National Youth and Sport Conference in Suva yesterday, giving young people a place in decision-making builds a broader base for citizens' involvement and creates stronger and more inclusive communities.

  152. This regime has set Fiji back several years. Without the coups Fiji's GDP would probably be double what it is now. Arbitrary rule and lack of due process have chased away all rational investors. Raising the minimum wage is an anti-youth measure, because it makes it harder for youth to join the economy with their first jobs and to gain the experience they need to find higher-paying employment. Restore democracy and stability to Fiji and watch the economy take off like a rocket. If we allow this illegal regime to continue through stolen elections, we should expect Fiji's sugar industry to die and the rest of our economy to crawl when it could be sprinting.

  159. University of the South PacificJune 26, 2014 at 10:52 AM

    25 June, 2014

    Response to Media
    Recent comments by our senior academic staff aired on Radio Australia’s Pacific Beat programme and appearing in the media have been brought to the attention of the University and concerns expressed about their accuracy and propriety.
    The University again wishes to make it clear that the views expressed by Dr. Matt Thompson and Mr. Patrick Craddock are their own.
    The University of the South Pacific upholds the principle of academic freedom and the right of its members to comment responsibly and within their area of expertise on current affairs.
    As outlined in the University’s Code of Professional Conduct for Academic Staff, in doing so, staff must observe the laws of the State and comply with University statutes and rules.
    Given the concerns expressed about the accuracy and propriety of the comments made by Dr. Thompson and Mr. Craddock, and to protect the academic freedom of all staff (and thereby ensure collective adherence to the University’s Code of Professional Conduct for Academic Staff), the University has initiated an internal investigation, and will consider appropriate action.

  163. Head master mentalityJune 26, 2014 at 11:57 AM



    Wake up V C. you think you are the boss of a local university. Well what can be expected from a dictator and a head master anyway. You are so scared of the regime that you will preach something else and do another. You think you are still in uni Fiji or what. USP is a regional institute. Why are you allowing it to be controlled by Fiji. If you can read about academic freedom rather than sending your long bullshit inspiration emails and power points slides to all staff email. Stop pending to be a great leader. You are hopeless. And worst academic who has no idea what academic freedom means. Media freedom won’t get into your head so don’t even bother. Buy some diaper. Seems you are wetting your pants since you are so scared.

  167. Go ahead, assholes, and expell these two journalism professors just before the elections. Let the world see how repressive you still are, how frightened of the truth. Please do it soon, so they get back to their countries in time to be interviewed and build this into a much bigger news story. The world is watching.

  168. Australian High Commission,

    New Zealand High Commission,

    PIF member countries,

    Fellow CROP agencies,

    How much longer will you turn a blind eye to the meddling of Fiji's illegal regime and the subversion of USP? This regime is destroying the reputation and quality of the region's premier university, but you do nothing?

    Why isn't this being nvestigated and discussed at PIF Leaders Meetings? Why isn't the PIF doing more to counteract the regime's undue pressures on USP and to ensure academic freedom?

  169. Former Army Commanders have NEVER ever publicly gave political comments, for the simple reason that they were well and truly apolitical.They were Officers and Gentlemen. They were the BASTIONS.
    NOW, however, you see daily political comments by the Military, Police and whoever!!

  170. The people need to remind this demi god they have a right to vote who they want and for what policies.

    Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has clarified that political parties alone cannot amend the Constitution.

    He told the National Youth Conference yesterday that they will need three quarters of parliament support and also 75 percent of registered voters support to be able to make any changes.

    This follows statements made by political parties that they will change the Constitution if they are voted to lead the country.

    It has been said time and again by various political parties they will make amendments to the constitution if they are voted into the parliament.

    “To change the constitution, for the first time we have in-co-operated that they need to come back to you. First three quarters of the parliament need to agree to change a particular section of the constitution but that does not change the constitution then they will come back to you and 75 percent or three quarters of all registered voters have to agree then that section can be change,” Sayed-Khaiyum.

    Sayed-Khaiyum says this is clearly outlined in the 2013 Constitution.

    “That of course would be a very strong provision that has been put in to ensure that we don’t have people changing the constitution willing nearly so there is need to be consistence and that is the provision that is in the Constitution.”

    Sayed-Khaiyum adds there is simply no other way to amend the Constitution.

    If you use illegal means to change the Constitution it simply means that it is illegal.

  171. My advice is simply to ignore the ”2013 Constitution". It's illegal anyway. The 1997 Constitution is still the basic law of the land. That cannot be changed by acts of treason.

  173. Come September 18 we will have no government as no Party will be able to gain enough votes to form government. So what happens then?

    ReplyDelete
  174. Khaiyum and Bainimarama and all those who who support them have used illegal means to change the 1997 constitution which still is the legal constitution of the land.
    Even the previous President Rt. Iloilo had no authority to abrogate the 1997 constitution.

  178. Fiji's legal constitution is the 1997 constitution.
    Fiji's legal government is the SDL.
    Fiji's legal Chief Justice is Justice Fatiaki
    Fiji's legal public service was the one in place in November 2006.
    Everything after that is illegal.
    The June 2006 election confirmed the legality of our government apparatus and appointments.
    A return to election is a return to the legal structure and of governance, and the declaration of all illegal activities that since 6th December 2006.

    Vote for a non military government
    Vote for the legal constitution
    Vote for a legal justice system
    Vote for an independent executive arm of government
    Vote for true separation of power

  180. A true apolitical army commander does not at all give a public statement about the peoples' choice of an elected government.

    Saying that the military is apolitical, and further saying that the military will not allow any elected government to amend any constitution, is a challenge to the peoples' democratic choice.

    Can the army commander put his mouth where his responsibilities are?, and not follow his predicessor who is now a very confused man.

    Army commander, please comment about border security against Tongan navy invasion, drug smuggling by yatchs, human trafficking, traditional fishing rights protection, and the whole securiy issues of our country.

    No political comments please, no, no, no more!!!!
    No thank you!!!

  185. Bainimarama needs to be tried for staging two coups - 2000 and 2006.

    He needs to be charged for twice attempting to abrogate the same constitution - 2001 and 2009.

    He needs to be charged twice for removing two Head of State - 2000 and 2009.

    He needs to be charged twice for illegally assuming executive authority - 2000 and 2009.

    There are in fact more charges awaiting him dating back to 2000 than his feeble attempt to seek immunity through another illegal constitution.

    The so called immunity provision in the 2013 illegal constitution is an admission that his actions in 2000 and 2006 were illegal.

    That's a lot of legal mess to sort out for someone wanting to further lead the country.
