Frank Bainimarama is a thug, who has beaten women, including one who was pregnant. He has killed through his soldiers those who've dared speak out against him.
He has also silenced the media, trade unions, churches and corrupted the judiciary - organisations that should be operating independently.
His thuggery, backed up the military, is evident on this video which shows him revealing his true colours to a TV3 reporter while in New Zealand recently.
The thuggery was documented just days after he seized control in 2006, when he beat human rights activists, including stomping on the back of a pregnant woman.
