The bombshell Auditor General Reports for 2007 to 2013

The evidence of the Auditor General Reports indicates Bainimarama and Khaiyum obtained significant personal financial advantage by paying themselves large increases in salary, decided by themselves.

By Professor Wadan Narsey
Fiji tax-payers have received an absolute bombshell
regarding the use of their money by the Bainimarama Regime, with the simultaneous release of the Auditor General Reports for the years 2007 to 2013, all 28 volumes of them. (very much in keeping with the Diwali fireworks and in anticipation of the now forgotten Guy Fawkes night).

These reports are detailed audits of government incomes, expenditures and borrowings, usually tabled annually in Parliament by the Minister of Finance, as a "report on the performance of the government" for the previous year.


All taxpayers must understand what is in these reports, given that annually at least 25% (or more than a billion dollars) of their total incomes is forcibly taken from them by the government as taxes, hundreds of millions further are borrowed by the same government to be paid by the current and future tax payers, and the entire revenue is then spent allegedly on tax-payers’ behalf.

The Auditor General Reports try to verify whether the taxes are being collected according to the law, whether loans are being borrowed responsibly and as planned, and whether the revenues are being spent the way that parliament approved or as stated in the Annual Budget documents, or whether there are deficiencies in the above.

Upon tabling in parliament and with the elected parliamentarians, the Auditor General Reports are usually released to the media, and hence to the public to monitor and act if they see fit.
That is what used to happen annually for forty six years after independence in 1970.
Then the cycle was broken by Commodore Bainimarama who seized power through a coup in December 2006.

Principles of a sound audit
It is useful to first outline the basic principles which the owners of all organizations, private or public, expect from a good audit whether in accounting, economics or management:

The Auditor General must be totally independent of the Fiji Government (reasonably so) and must be adequately resourced (not so, according to his reports);
The government ministries must give the Auditor General every information that they ask for (they refused in a number of cases);
The audit must clearly point out the major faults (done pretty well), as well as the remedies to the owners, the people of Fiji (not so good);
The owners must be able to make the organizational changes that are necessary to eliminate the faults pointed out (little chance of that);
The next audit must check to see if the faults pointed out the previous year have been rectified (often not rectified) and the public notified of these failures (not done).

Busted by auditor general's report

Despite the Auditor General’s best efforts, some of these principles have been significantly compromised by the Bainimarama Government (as given in the brackets above), the most obvious being the complete failure to report annually.


No AG Reports from 2007 to 2013
For seven years, the Auditor General Reports have been prepared and submitted to the Bainimarama Cabinet by a very brave group of civil servants in the Auditor General’s Office (read here my appreciation of them).

But the Bainimarama Government and Minister of Finance refused to release any of the AG Reports, despite the many requests from the public and international condemnation. Read here one of my last critical articles to appear in The Fiji Times, 28 October 2008: https://narseyonfiji.wordpress.com/2012/03/17/when-security-guards-rob-the-bank-and-the-surveillance-report-goes-to-the-robbers-the-fiji-times-28-october-2008/)

The flimsy excuse was that the law required Bainimarama to table the reports in Parliament and because there was no parliament (which he himself had removed), he did not have to table the reports, totally ignoring that the fundamental objective was for the Bainimarama Government to report to the people, not some empty hall in the Parliamentary complex at Veiuto or Government buildings.

For eight years, the unelected illegal Bainimarama Government completely controlled the raising of taxes and loans, and the spending of all revenues, without any accountability whatsoever to the people.

Then, after becoming an elected Prime Minister in September 2014 (promising "equality for all" and "if you don’t want another coup, vote for me"), he released all seven sets of Auditor General Reports, totaling 28 reports altogether.

They are now being read by the curious media and the public, many understandably searching for evidence of abuse and misuse of tax-payers’ funds.

The revelations in the reports
Professor Biman Prasad, the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee which is charged with examining the AG Reports, has already stated that "it has become abundantly clear there has been widespread abuse of public funds and blatant disregard of fundamental financial procedures (as well as) … pilferage, wastage and abuse of public funds".

Professor Prasad noted that there had been "continuous disregard of recommendations by the Auditor-General" indicating that the Bainimarama Government carried on "business as usual" year after year for eight years, making no attempt at correcting the mistakes being pointed out by the Auditor General.

These conclusions are quite damming of Bainimarama’s performance as Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, and also of the two most important Permanent Secretaries – of Finance and Public Service.

They also explain why Bainimarama and Khaiyum were adamant in not releasing the reports before the September 2014 elections, given that they would have inevitably influenced the outcome and certainly Bainimarama’s support.

With Bainimarama’s Fiji First Party campaign claiming great honesty, transparency, accountability and opposition to corruption, the Opposition parliamentarians can now legitimately state that the evidence in the Auditor General’s Reports suggest that the 2014 elections were won by Bainimarama and Khaiyum using lies and deceit.

Of relevance to this claim is the personal integrity of Prime Minister and Finance Minister Bainimarama and Attorney General Khaiyum, with respect to the salaries that they paid themselves during 2010 and 2013, and the blatant abuse of process of payment.

Ministers’ salaries
While the Public Accounts Committee will no doubt investigate the many revelations of costly abuse of public funds and lack of transparency and accountability, the public will be especially interested in the revelations about ministerial salaries between 2010 and 2013, and what is still not being revealed.

The public already know that in November 2011, Regime supporters John Samy and the late Archbishop Mataca (Co-Chairman of the National Council for Building a Better Fiji) wrote a letter to Bainimarama, complaining about the increasing lack of transparency and accountability of his Government.


Read here: https://narseyonfiji.wordpress.com/2013/04/06/the-peoples-charter-and-accountability-of-john-samy-and-archbishop-mataca-6-april-2013/

Samy and Mataca noted that there were rumors that Bainimarama and Khaiyum "both were being paid exorbitant salaries, not through the Ministry of Finance but a close relative of the AG, through a high-fees based contractual arrangement".

The leader of the Fiji Labour Party (Mahendra Chaudhry) who had also been the Minister of Finance in the Bainimarama Government in 2007, is also on record accusing Bainimarama and Khaiyum of paying themselves multiple salaries from 2010 to 2012, before reverting them to the lower ones revealed after the elections.

Sure enough, the AG Report for 2010 (Vol. 2, Section 4, p11) reveals that as a result of a Cabinet instruction of 4 Jan 2010, the Prime Minister’s Office issued invoices to the Ministry of Finance to pay salaries through Alizpacific, (an accounting firm associated with Dr Nur Bano Ali, an aunt of Attorney General Aiyaz Khaiyum).

The Report noted that the $1.8 million paid (listed on a monthly basis) had no supporting documents, and was intended to "alter the terms and conditions of engagement of all Ministers". The AG Report stated that this "compromises the transparency of payments being made".

But the Public Accounts Committee must investigate serious breach of process that the AG’s Report did not raise. First, why should Ministers’ salaries be increased by the Ministers themselves, when there have always been proper independent avenues available to do so?

Second, why should Ministers’ salaries be paid through a private accounting firm when that has always been the prerogative of the Ministry of Finance?

Third, what were individual Ministers being paid in totality in 2010?

Fourth, why was the Prime Minister’s Office refusing to reveal the information to both the Auditor General and the Ministry of Finance? That is still not the whole story.

The public should note that the AG Report for 2010 and for other years, had complained that there is a Head 50 under which many undocumented payroll expenditures in other Ministries were partly paid, and whose own payroll expenditures were being understated.

For example, Table 4.9 in Volume 2 of the 2010 Report, noted that there was an unexplained $247,200 in emoluments paid to the Prime Minister’s Office, as well as $1,253,625 paid to the Royal Fiji Military Forces. Who exactly received these payments?

Fast forward to the AG Report for 2013, Vol. 2. Section O4, pp.13 and 14. The Report stated their review of the Head 50 Expenditure revealed that the Ministry paid a total of $1,860,947 as Cabinet Ministers’ salaries in 2013, based on the amounts provided by Alizpacific Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers) associated with the same Nur Bano Ali.

This time, individual payments vouchers (but not the names of the Cabinet Ministers) were documented including one for $278,750 (presumably paid to Prime Minister Bainimarama, and which was still way above what had been paid previously to Prime Ministers).

In addition it was noted that Bainimarama received a "gratuity" payment of $57,500 from a different vote, bringing his total recorded salary for 2013 to $366,250 which is way above what Prime Ministers had been paid before 2006.

Again, there were large undocumented payments for emoluments from the Head 50.

Despite repeated requests for the associated documents from both the Auditor General’s Office and Ministry of Finance, the Prime Minister’s Office refused to make the details available, according to the Auditor General.

What an extraordinary and serious breach of PSC rules by the PS in the Prime Minister’s Office (now an elected Minister in parliament) and the Prime Minister himself. Did the PSC take any action?

The 2013 AG Report on Ministers’ salaries also documented that there was another unexplained "additional Ministers payroll expenditure" of $137,150. Did this item include the "commission" charged by Alizpacific as had been questioned by John Samy, Archbishop Mataca and Mahendra Chaudhry?

The Public Accounts Committee will no doubt investigate further the Bainimarama Government’s practice of paying ministers’ undeclared salaries through a private accounting company, if necessary subpoenaing the AlizPacific, Ministry of Finance, FRCA and Fiji National Provident Fund officials.
The Public Accounts Committee will no doubt also want to investigate the back pay of $185 thousands that Bainimarama was paid in 2008, supposedly for accumulated leave from 1978, completely against all PSC regulations.

They might also want to investigate the irregular massive increase of some Permanent Secretaries’ salaries just before the 2014 Budget, supposedly recommended by another private accounting company.

I personally believe that salaries of $300,000 or so for a Minister of Finance or a Permanent Secretary of Finance can be justified IF they are qualified and competent, given that they effectively manage "a billion dollar enterprise" with potentially massive benefits or costs because of their decisions.

But the sad evidence before Fiji is that in 2011, an incompetent Minister of Finance and Permanent Secretary of Finance, and the Attorney General (why him?) with the avaricious assistance of ANZ Bank, borrowed $500 million internationally at 9% interest, when IMF was willing to lend the same sum at 2% interest, thereby costing Fiji taxpayers an unnecessary interest repayment of $40 million annually (which we are still paying) (read about that sorry saga here).

More reports to come
The public should note that these 28 Auditor General Reports are only for the Central Government accounts.

They do not cover the dozens of public enterprises and semi-commercial organizations which Government either wholly or partly owns, or for which government and taxpayers have contingent liability for. The Auditor General is also required to audit them and he apparently has already done so for a number of them.

Some of these public enterprises, such as Fiji Roads Authority, Ports Authority, AFL and others spend hundreds of millions of dollars of tax-payers money, with an equally great capacity to misuse large amounts of tax-payer funds.

Some, such as Fiji National Provident Fund, have already written down $300 million in members funds at its investments in Natadola and Momi, and their associated audit reports have been suppressed as well.

We can therefore expect that there will be perhaps another hundred reports coming out of the Auditor General’s Office in the next year or so, to be also examined by the Public Accounts Committee, parliament, the media and the general public. Academics will have a field day.

While today Rear Admiral (ret) Voreqe Bainimarama is reminding Fiji that the terrible National Bank of Fiji disaster that cost taxpayers a massive $220 million should never be forgotten or repeated, the next generation will be crying about the Bainimarama/Khaiyum disaster which has already cost Fiji more than a billion dollars over the last eight years, and they have another four more years to add to that.

Consequences of eight year delay
The purpose of issuing the AG reports annually is that the elected representatives of the people can call on wrong-doers to be suitably disciplined and surcharged if necessary.
The public can then see whether there is any improvement taking place at all in the way government is managing tax payers’ money.

Not issuing the report for eight years is therefore a horrendous indictment of the unelected illegal Bainimarama Government’s arrogant refusal to account for tax payers’ money, especially when every year, the Auditor General has refused to give unqualified audits to most of the financial agencies they have audited.

It is as if a school refuses to give the annual report on a student for Forms 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
Then it gives all the reports together with the Form 7 Report, which tells the student (and the parents) that he has been failing every year, and is now ineligible to enter university. What remedial action can the parents and the student take now?

That is exactly the daunting situation faced by the Public Accounts Committee, whose scope for disciplinary action will be totally undermined for two reasons. First, the guilty civil servants or Ministers will have moved on (except for a prominent few).

Secondly, the Bainimarama Government has supposedly given itself "immunity" in the 2013 Constitution, for undefined actions between 2000 and 2014, although this ought to be tested in the courts, using the wonderful 2001 judgment by Justice Anthony Gates, that no tyrant has the power to change a constitution, regardless of how long he rules and how popular he may be.

Who should the Auditor General report to?
It is surely ridiculous that the Auditor General reports to the very Government Ministers whose financial performance is being audited, and who allegedly become responsible for making it available to Parliament or the public.

It is equivalent to an examinations report for a student being given to the student himself, who can then decide whether to give the report to his parents or not.

Parliament needs to consider placing the Auditor General’s Office under the Secretary to Parliament, rather than the Ministry of Finance, who has a vested interest or conflict of interest, in the audit.

Better still, given our coup culture and the continuing possibility of lawful governments being removed and parliament being closed down, the Public Accounts Committee ought to consider changing the legislation (what legislation, you might well ask?) to ensure that the Auditor General’s Reports are launched publicly and put on their website, without having to go through any Minister or Parliament.

That is the least that tax-payers can expect for the use of their money by elected or unelected government ministers.

Lessons for parliament and the Public Accounts Committee
For seven years, Bainimarama and Khaiyum have repeated over and over that they did the coup to remove corruption and give the people of Fiji a government that was more transparent and accountable.

The evidence in the Auditor General Reports indicates that the people and voters of Fiji have been grossly and deliberately misled by the current elected Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, through their suppression of the damaging Auditor General Reports, and their refusal to provide the Auditor General and the Ministry of Finance with the information that they asked for and were entitled to receive.

The evidence of the Auditor General Reports clearly indicates that these two government ministers obtained significant personal financial advantage by paying themselves large increases in salary, decided by themselves.

These irregular salaries were then improperly paid through a private sector company associated with a relative of the former Attorney General and current Minister of Finance. The Auditor General Reports also revealed that this same company has received extremely favorable treatment on business consultancies awarded without tender, and this will no doubt be another focal point for the Public Accounts Committee.

In civilized countries, government ministers and even Prime Ministers resign over improper benefits of a few thousand dollars or allegations of vote buying, as happens regularly in Australia or Japan or NZ.

Here we are talking of hundreds of thousands of dollars obtained from the taxpayers of a much poorer country through irregular processes.

It would be perfectly legitimate for the Opposition in Fiji Parliament, following the debate on the Auditor General Reports, to file a motion calling on Bainimarama and Khaiyum to resign, if they genuinely believed that all are equal before the law.

The Opposition could call on other Fiji First Party parliamentarians to support their motion if they believed in the principles of good governance, or to at least abstain on the vote.

Lessons for the media
For several years now, some journalists at the Fiji Sun, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation and Communications Fiji Ltd, have waged blatant propaganda campaigns on behalf of Bainimarama and Khaiyum.

During the elections campaigns, they have been viciously unfair towards Opposition candidates and parties who questioned the Bainimarama Government’s record on issues revealed by the Auditor General Reports to have substance after all.

If these journalists had any ethics at all, they would apologize to the public and now present the public with critical analyses based on the unpleasant facts which have been revealed by the Auditor General’s Reports.

What they do or not do over the next few weeks will reveal whether they were simply misguided naive ignorant journalists or they were and continue to be media prostitutes for their employers, whose financial interests, biases and objectives are well known.

Whatever they do, the media coverage of the Auditor General’s Reports will be visible to the world, and will give journalism students and academics excellent material for case studies on the role of the media and journalists in subverting or defending good governance and accountability in Fiji.

The public and the media might want to seek statements from the Fiji Institute of Accountants and Auditors, the Law Society , Transparency International Fiji or the several departments and professors of governance and law at USP, FNU and FU, but I suggest that given their record over the last eight years,the public would be well advised not to hold their breath waiting for a response.

Great to know we have such an expert as yourself on road building in Fiji.

No doubt your assumptions and calculations are as good as your ones on nurses working hours and pay were, moron.

Tui Viti said...

@ Kua ni Veke and ass. Pls allow me to furnish your high level expertise with my amature knowledge on Civil Engineering in this case Roads: ok, there are standards provided for the manufacture of roads in Fiji, I believe that we inherited the British System, so what happened was that the previous Govt didnt make the roads to the required standards, e.g. the depth of rammed gravel should have been 5-6 feet before tarseal is laid;

but you know what occured? I'll answer that myself most of the companies that were contracted to do this job only rammed 1-2 feet of gravel and laid tarseal so what happened was during heavy rains,water accumulated beneath the rammed gravel and since there was only a few distance between the water beneath and the tarsealed road on the top,with all the buses and trucks crossing 24/7 the rammed gravel started to soften up because water was seeping through so after a week of heavy rain,the lovo holes start appearing. Rammed gravel is gravel that is continuosly being rammed by the heavy roller machines.

Come repair time, they just add several inches lets say 8 inches of rammed gravel then the tarseal is poured so you have the pot holes all over the place,so they were making money both the private companies and the civil engineers in charge but,but this Govt is putting a one stop shop,notice they have dug up the whole she bang added 5 feet of rammed gravel before the tarseal was poured.

So the previous Govt was spending only 1 million for 5 km of road and due to the extra ramming of 5 feet to 6 feet of gravel, the cost has increased so this Govt is building 5km of tarsealed on expenses that is five times more, and what the Bimanji and his clones plus you guys is THAT THE GOVT HAS OVERSPEND AND MISMANAGED,NO GUYS WE HAVE IMPROVED THE ROAD TO THE REQUIRED STANDARD.
Tinky maybe an hour of cunninglingus will do you right.

Anonymous said...

@6:09pm...ha ha ha your funny...Firstly....lets get it straight I am a Fijian of Indo ethnic origin but a Fijian so can you please address me as a Fijian...Not a Kai Viti, which is the native term of our beloved Indigenous people which I will respect....ok ok I may have said it a few times on this site that Kai Viti are lazy but hell....with us Fijians being blamed for every coup and all sorts of atrocities, we have taken it up the bum so much that we thinking hold on, you turn around my turn. So don't burst a blood vessel or carry on calling us Fijians names and so forth cause Im sure you love your curry, chaser for your grog and you must have curry in every function meal you have today. Now, we Fijians of Indo ethnic origin have contributed immensely to Fiji during the Colonial era when the Colonial masters segregated you the native itaukei and us the indentured labourers. We were more or less slaves treated like animals and we worked very hard to improve the economy of a country that had only just gained Independence in 1887. You may not have realised it but the Colonial masters treated you and I like slaves even though they appeared to give you more leverage, they feared us because of our high work ethics and perseverance. Back in those days things were black and white...white side of the street, white toilets, white only shops, whites only clubs. The natives or itaukei were more or less satisfied with the way you live in your villages as you did not need to live in Towns and pay rents etc which we had to do, which was pay for our trip to Fiji than held on a ransom to be released from our bond so, we had to fight against the Colonial Masters for everything. In fighting for our right to equality, equal pay, walk the same street as white, enter same shop, use same toilet and drink from same fountain and clubs, we were fighting for equality for the natives as well. We went on strike rather then go fight in a war created by the Colonial masters who dragged the war into the South Pacific and made you feel patriotic to be involved in the same war. You could never enter some of these clubs like the Defense Club in Suva, the Northern Club and a number of other clubs without being White, half white. Well some High Chiefs and learned itaukei and Fijians of Indo ethnic origins gained some of these privileges. We need to recognize and acknowledge each others contribution to the country. You as the Itaukei being generous and we Fijians of Indo ethnic origin are grateful to you. We know we have our own religious, traditional and customary ways that you find alien and disagree with however, those were our ways for thousands and thousands of years and we are a very old race of people. We have to be tolerant and understanding. Things have changed over the years since Independence, 1987 coup and so forth but we have to now learn to work together to better ourselves and our country. Do I like racism shoved up my arse, of course I don't just like you would not like a dalo or vudi shoved up yours so to speak. Im sure many of you don't like the fact that we are calling ourselves Fijians but we are proud to be Fijians and we don't know any better. We don't know India and we have developed and grown from what we were when we landed on the shores of our beloved Fiji, to the generations that live in Fiji today and or have moved on. That's my speech for the day.

Let us make sure Biman doesn't get into parliament. Let us make sure he gets less than 4% of the total votes so that NFP doesn't get into parliament.\
After the election: oh dear we didn't get 100 seats. We can still work on something. Let's have a new decree so that we can suffocate the opposition so that no one dares to vote against us in parliament.\
Now how did Biman get into parliament. Let us make him penniless.\
Now how did he become the Chair of the Public Accounts Committee. He is the only Indian and that too the most respected and intelligent one. If he is around all our plans will be made public. People we have fooled for 8 years will come to know about the millions we have stacked away. We have to get him out of PAC. He scares me out of my pants ": the words of Aiyaaz and Bainimarama.

1. TO RID FIJI OF CORRUPTION
2. TO CLEAN UP THE GOVERNMENT
3. PM TO ONLY RECEIVE THE COMMANDER'S PAY.
4. NO MILITARY PERSONNEL WILL BENEFIT
5. TO HAVE ELECTION IN MARCH 2009

BASED ON THE AUDITOR GENERAL'S REPORT, ALL MINISTERS AND PS SHOULD BE TAKEN TO TASKS WITH CRONIES.

She said the Government members did not want the meeting to go ahead as scheduled this morning because they had issues with the chairman commenting to the media on the Auditor Generals report.

"We are not going to change our mind. Government cannot come to us and tell us who they want," Ro Teimumu said.

critique said...

the Machiavellian attempt to get rid of Prof. biman prasad as the chair of the PAC is but a confirmation that the dictatorship has changed only in name. it's doing what it has been doing since taking over power illegally in 2006 - getting rid of anybody opposed to its rule or anybody they can't cynically manipulate to suit their agenda. Don't be surprised if you hear that Prof. Biman's home has been firebombed or he has been sworn at and abused. These scoundrels have NO RESPECT for the democratic tradition of governance - for transparency, accountability and public scrutiny. Whatever "commitment" they claim to be making on these essential democratic values and principles of good governance is just for show. They have no genuine commitment. If they had it their way they would have continued in the same dictatorial way they have governed the country in the past 8 years - in secrecy with media control and without transparency, accountability and publlic scrutiny. That is a FACT!

FFP and Government trying to get rid of Biman proves that he is on track to the real truth which these abusers want to hide.

Now that the heat is on...Government and FFP are getting scared.

editor,
As a keen observer of Fiji politics and governance the only reason I can discern for "Government members urging a change in chairmanship" of the Public Accounts Committee (FT 13/11) is that Professor Biman Prasad the chair is not prepared to be a puppet of the ruling Bainimarama Government.
The Bainimarama Government has shown itself quite willing to accept and retain people who have been investigated and found to be corrupt or have otherwise been guilty of abuse of office in some form.Professor Prasad is not tainted in any way. He is an intelligent, capable person amply suited to chair the PAC. That's why the Opposition leader belonging to a different political party to Pro. Prasad's still nominated him for the post.
The position should not depend on or be changed according to what the Government members like. Their likes and dislikes have nothing to do with the position. The position should be based on what is good for democratic governance - for accountability, transparency and public scrutiny - and for what is in the best interest of the people of Fiji. Prof. Prasad clearly has what it takes to deliver on this post.
The claim that the Government members don't want him as chairman because he has been talking too much with the media (FT 13/11) is a red herring. It is a spurious claim. Talking to the media an cause no harm . The harm to the country has already been done by the widespread abuse highlighted by the Auditor-General in his report covering the period of the Bainimarama Government's arbitrary rule of the country from 2006 to 2013.
Nothing Prof.Prasad has done has undermined the work of the PAC.
The work of the PAC - one of the main Parliamentary committees - is to see how the broken governmental systems as per the A-G's report can be fixed. That should be the focus of ALL the members of PAC.
I applaud the Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa for her decision to stand firm on her nomination of Professor Biman Prasad as chair of PAC (FT 13/11).
This is the first test of Fiji's "new" democracy.
It won't be the last.
sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

Tomasi said...

@Editor. Thank you for availing us the opportunity to discuss issues and matters of importance to our lives, our nation and our future. Thank you for the coverage on the OAG Report. We now have the details and specifics of those reports and a PAC has been appointed to address the report according to established Parliamentary procedures on behalf of the whole nation.

I humbly suggest that we should focus more now on the roots of our problems rather than spending valuable time and energy on talking about what has already happened. We should focus on the fundamental roots of our problems in order to resolve them once and for all. We have spent the last seven years complaining and discussing our problems. I believe we should by now know what our problems are and what we ought to do about it. If we do not take action now, it will be another four years or more of waiting, complaining and waiting without any real change happening.

In my postings over the last 3-4 weeks, I focussed on two action issues. Firsly, the moving of a Censure Motion against JVB our former dictator and now elected PM. Secondly, the need to focus on the real power and PM of Fiji, AS Khaiyum. I firmly believe that if we take these two actions and follow through with joint efforts with our Members of Parliament, we may indeed begin to see the changes we so badly need in the way our Government is run and the quality of decisions and life in Fiji.

May I repeat please. A Censure Motion on JVB ought to be considered and our Opposition MPs must take leadership in that. Khaiyum is really promoting Islam through what is called Islamic tagiyya. It is the art of deception of a high order to conceal from the people the real agenda and the real movers and shakers of Fiji's political events. Islam is not a religion but a government through shariah law. The sooner the people of Fiji realises that, the quicker we can restore normalcy in Fiji. Ignoring this would be like allowing a time bomb to tick. The end result of that we all know; destructive explosion and chaos of far greater proportions that what Fiji has ever witnessed. Vinaka.

You state ""Khaiyum is really promoting Islam through what is called Islamic tagiyya. It is the art of deception of a high order to conceal from the people the real agenda and the real movers and shakers of Fiji's political events. Islam is not a religion but a government through shariah law.""

I would suggest that you are simply promoting anti Islam sentiments and simply just one more of the pseudo Christians so easily recognized.

Have you no shame.

It wouldn't surprise me if Aiyaz Khaiyum tries to convince Bainimarama to accept MUSLIM ASSYLUM SEEKERS from Australia otherwise also called ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS as part of the "Islamic tagiyya" which Tomasi explains.

THE DECEPTION WOULD BE VERY SIMPLE:
FIJI NEEDS MONEY TO PAY ITS DEBTS.
AUSTRALIA PROVIDE THE MONEY and asks you to take the REFUGEES...
VOILA...AIYAZ KHAIYUM'S ORIGINAL PLAN FULFILLED. ie make this a Muslim Country by OVERRUNNING IT WITH MUSLIMS.....

FIJI OPPOSITION PARTY MUST NEVER ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.

AIYAZ KHAIYUM HAS ALREADY ROBBED THE FIJI TAXPAYERS MONEY IN LOTS OF AREAS.
GETTING HIS AUNTY NUR BANO TO DO THE ACCOUNTING IS JUST TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS AND THIS GUY DESERVES TO BE IN JAIL.

editor,
Scrutiny and accountability of State conduct is an essential element of democracy - not only at the national but at the international level as well.
Here is an example of the latter.
The UN anti-torture inquiry grilled Australia on its human rights, asylum seeker policies,amendements to the counter-terrorism laws and over-representation of indigenous Australians in prison. The review that took place Monday night until Tuesday morning is the first assessment since 2008... NGO's in the country had appealed to the UN Committee citing instances where Australia breached the UNtreaty... If the committee proved that Australia indeed breached the treaty then the country's bid for a seat on the UN Security Council in 2018 will be tainted.
The hearing was attended by 15 bureacrats from the immigration, foreign affairs and the Attorney-General's department as well as representatives from Australia's permanent mission to the UN.
The UN committee will release its report card by Nov. 28.
( please read the full article titled 'UN Anti- torture committee Grills Australia on Human Rights Policy' by Athena Yenko in International Business Times Nov.11 - from where the above post was uplifted).
If Australia, a first world democracy and a pioneer signatory to the UN Treaty, can be cited for possible breach it's hard to see how a dictatorship can pull wool over the eyes of the UN committee.
sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

Tomasi said...

Folks, as many of us realise, we are not dealing with ordinary people here. Khaiyum, Voreqe and their core team are committed to an agenda that has nothing to do with the welfare of Fiji. Their principal agenda is about total control over people, institutions and resources, a total overhaul of all systems and processes, and a fundamental and radical restructuring and realignment of government, private sector and the social, economic and political order in Fiji. If people have not realised that by now, then their brand of Islamic tagiyya has worked perfectly.


Please read my posts on Saiyad Khaiyum on this and other blogsites. Events in Fiji are not an isolated one. It is part of a global agenda that is well defined and crafted to bring the whole world under one rule. They have a Project for Europe and for North America. I have copies of those and these plans are already underway since several decades ago. There are plans for Asia and the Pacific, including our Oceania region including Fiji. Khaiyum and his Islamic family and friends and associate are a part of this agenda. Khaiyum's thesis must be read again and understood by all of us because it is but only one dot we must connect with others to see and understand what is really happening.

We were telling people before the election. We are telling people afetr the election. Please Fiji, wake up and see what their agenda. Parliament is a sham, just as the constitution and election and clean up campaign is a sham. Dakuwaqa's suggestion gels with mine and others. The time for talking and complaining is long gone. They are not interested in talking because they already have an agenda. They simply want us to listen and do as they say. Note everything they have said and done and you will see that they will dictate things and will not change unless we the people will take ACTION NOW.


If Parliament is a sham, then do not expect the PAC and Parliament to resolve our problems. They can only do so much. I urge all of us to think and let us work together and come up with a Plan of Action. We must work with our MPs and take the necessary action. It is time to take that extra step. The time for reasoning and complaining and talking is over. We must demand a full restoration of all our rights, including our freedoms to assemble, to talk and freely exchange ideas and information.

Please let us not be deluded to think that PM Khaiyum and his puppet Voreqe are going to protect our rights and freedoms and our lives. They will do do within their powers to keep us in fear and under their complete control. is that what you want? Seven years of crimes, thuggery, violence, murder, torture, fraud, lies and deceit is ENOUGH. They must be held accountable just like anyone else. Let us wake up Fiji and take action NOW. Vinaka.

rajend naidu said...

editor,
Pita Dovibua does not go far enough in his criticism of Fiji Sun journalists Jyoti Pratibha and Leone Cabenatabua in his letter 'Coconut wireless' (FS 14/11). He is being modest when he refers to "the usual slanted reporting" of these journalists. The fact is that these journalists and many others in the mainstream media in Fiji had abdicated their responsibility and professional ethics to act as strident propagandists for the Bainimarama military dictatorship in Fiji. They acted disgracefully. They brought journalism in Fiji into disrepute. They let the people of Fiji down by openly siding with the dictatorship rather than acting as the public watchdog and in the peoples' interest.
These mediocre journalists continue in the same vein post elections.
Old habits of sucking up are hard to shake off. How many words have any of these journalists written on the widespread abuse the Auditor-General has recorded that took place during the Bainimarama dictatorship in Fiji?
That speaks volumns.

Satan "deceived" Eve in the garden of Eden and he has been deceiving people ever since.

YOU"LL FIND THAT AIYAZ and BAINIMARAMA'S modus operande IS TO DECEIVE.....
THEY CONTINUALLY LIE TO US...

AND THAT IS WHY I SAY THAT FIJIANS SHOULD NOT PUT THEIR LAND IN THE LAND BANK,.....these 2 are Masters of Deception

FIJIANS SHOULD NEVER BELIEVE BAINIMARAMA WHEN HE SAYS THAT THE NEW CONSTITUTION SAFEGUARDS FIJIAN LAND OWNERSHIP

THAT IS FARKING BULLSHIT.

Bainimarama is a deceiver ; a LIAR ; and he is hellbent on stripping the Fijian people of their Land and Property.

Tomasi is correct

Bainimarama DECEIVED the Fijian soldiers, so they stupidly supported him.

He DECEIVED lots of people.
EVEN USP ACADEMICS and PROFESSORS WERE DECEIVED.

He DECEIVED people to vote for him.
But his records from The Auditor General's Report is appalling.
HOWEVER HE STILL MANAGED TO DECEIVE LOTS PEOPLE , YOUNG KIDS AND OLD PEOPLE TO LOVE HIM.

You'll find that his SUPPORTERS will come here on C4.5 and will try and DELIBERATELY MISINFORM people, or JUST BLATANTLY LIE ...but we are on to them.

SO REMEMBER : WHENEVER BAINIMARAMA AND AIYAZ OPEN THEIR MOUTH, THEY WILL BE TRYING TO DECEIVE YOU....

Next time you hear them talk on TV or get interviewed in the newspaper....just keep a lookout AND YOU WILL SEE IT CLEARLY...

Tui Viti said...

It is obvious that those idiots questioning my post about how roads are made have no idea at all about roadmaking.

What I said was the standard for Making Road wasnt followed,they made shortcuts,I gave an example that if the standard in Fiji was to pour 5 feet of gravel on a flat surface,I didnt say DIG,once hard top soil surface is found then gravel is poured,followed by a roller machine to ram the gravel once the required height for rammed gravel is reached e.g. 4-5 feet then fine gravel is poured and rammed by a roller machine to add another feet then tarseal is poured,

the height of the road should be 5 feet especially swampy mangrove areas,i will give you an example of the perfect road,the stretch of road between Western Wreckers, Lautoka and Natabua Road junction the road surface is about 5 feet above the top soil,that area is often flooded during heavy rains but the road's condition remains in top shape because it was made according to the required standard,

i.e pour tarseal when 5 feet of gravel has been rammed by a roller machine,but the previous Govt were only ramming 2-3 feet of gravel before tarseal is poured to minimise costs, thus the lovo holes,

SO THIS GOVT IS MAKING IT RIGHT,RAM 5 FEET OF GRAVEL,THEN RAM ANOTHER FEET OF FINE GRAVEL BEFORE TARSEAL IS POURED SO THIS GOVT INCURS COSTS 5-6 TIMES MORE THAN THE PREVIOUS GOVT FOR THE SAME LENGTH OF ROAD AND THIS IS SEEN AS OVERSPENDING.

FIJI IS A SMALL NATION IF WE ALL UNITE, AS OUR PM WANTS; THEN OUR CHILDREN WILL REAP THE BENEFITS.

editor,
'Iraq PM removes dozens of military officers following corruption probe' Aljazeera 14/11.
The removal of the 38 commanders has been welcomed across the political spectrum. It shows the Iraq PM is serious about making changes, about handling corruption and misconduct. His action is seen as " a big morale boost for all the troops".
We can be so proud none in the Fiji military have been removed for corruption and misconduct. The commander's contract is always extended by the PM.
The Fijian military has always been very clean and professional. Only the refusal to let the Auditor-General examine its Regimental Funds had cast some shadow over its cleaness. Anything else?
Please correct me if what I say is wrong.

I want to thank my former workmate in Fiji Mr Tevita Bolanavanua & all the staff of the Auditor General Office for their hard work in auditing the Government Finance from 2007 - 2013. Well Done & Excellent level of Government Audit, with the highest level of professionalism. It is not easy to audit the Government Finance of any Miltary Government, and for Fiji it was a sad case when the Minister for Finance, Frank Bainmarama did not have the right qualifications and experience to hold the post,compared to Mahendra Chaudhry or Ratu Jone Kubuobola. To make it worse Frank's advisors did no have the gut to guide him to the right direction and to fore-warn him about government audit. May be on the other hand, Frank did not have the capability of listening to the sound advise of other civil servants, instead he preferred only Khaiyum and his aunty Nur Bano. Anyway,we should be happy that we now have an elected government in parliament, but the outcome of the Auditor General Report for the past 7 years, may be the best document to test the PM Ministry of Finance transparency,integrity and accountability, under his leadership. The Public Accounts Committee (PAC)now have tne big assignment to thoroughly study the audit report and uncover the areas the Auditor General Office was denied access into as outlined in the audit report. The Public Accounts Committee, got a mamoth task to scrutinize, analyze,the findings of the Auditor General Office and get all the facts linked to unaccounted and non-transparent acts of those involved, and compiled another report for public consumption.
In some cases he may called the CEO of FRCA, FICAC and the Police to lay charges and prosecute some ministers, civil servants and public office holders who may implicate on some issues. There are case laws to refer to if the Public Accounts Committee want to take them to Court. However, on the other hand Aiyaz Khaiyum is now the Minister of two important government ministries where the " government finance audit basket" will fall, i.e Minister for Justice and Minister for Finance.But, doesn't matter if Khaiyum hold those two important portfolios,because the "Tiger" (Mahendra Chaudhry)who was a former auditor in the Auditor General Office, is now out of Parliament, and I'm sure that he will give bullets to the Chairman of the PAC,{Biman Prasad) to shoot Khaiyum, Nur Bano & the current PM Frank Bainimarama,and other civil servants and public office holders in the Military Government of Frank. I hope the PM and his team will stand this important test & avoid ended up in Prison like Marcos the former PM of the Phillipines.

"Iraq PM removes dozens of military officers following corruption probe."

In regards to Fiji, Tinkerbell reports:

"Fiji PM awards dozens of military loyalists and supporters of the 2006 coup that assisted him in the overthrow of a democratically elected government under the then Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase.

Frank Bainimarama who is the current leader of the FF ruling government party previously labelled an illegal dictator by the opposition 2006 -2013 and those who firmly supported the rule of law said in a recent interview that he had no intention of making any drastic changes to the practice of corruption and misconduct that have been labelled against the FF.

True to his word the PM stunned the nation by declaring the removal of the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee appointed to look into the AG Reports tabled at Parliament. Prof Biman when questioned claimed widespread misconduct and irregularities in nearly every departmental ministry.

In another instance the PM came down hard saying that one area that was strictly prohibited for any investigative attempts by the Chairman Prof Biman, was the examination of regimental funds.

There is so much drivel on this website. Back and forth you go like a bunch of squabbling old women. Seriously, do you all realise how stupid you sound. Pick, pick, pick. Bainimara and Khaiyum are in power for at least another four years. And they will still be there after that because the opposition is shit. Look at Ro Teimumu. She's flicked all the hard work to Biman and made him the opposition leader. But he's only got three seats and will never be anything than a boring rump. SODELPA has no chance of making up the ground it needs to win. FF won in a landslide and Bainimarama is running even harder now than he was before. Momi, sugar reforms, the world's top leaders flocking to see him. As Clinton said: "it's the economy, stupid" and Fiji is about to record another growth rate about 4 per cent. That means a boom by local standards and more jobs. So you might think the Public Accounts Committee BS is important but it will be all forgotten in 2018.

All that is needed is for Bainimarama and Khaiyum to wave their magic banana and all these things will fall like mana from heaven!! See how magically they made rubbish bins to appear just before the elections? How could they lose the elections when they can do magic like that!!

sorry but baini and kainoqu dont have magic fingers...all they have are itchy fingers....they steal from the very people they give the rubbish bins to and from others who dont get the rubbish bins because they dont like receiving property bought from stolen money...the pissheads of ffp cannot see the problem with that...even if they get jobs obtained by stealing and cheating an lying. these thugs are no robin hoods but hooded criminals because they steal from the people and put the loot in their own pockets first then the people get the left overs.

Hey you arseholes, the reason FF is in power is that the Fijian people saw that they deliver while your lot simply took. They won, you lost. Get over it and take your tablets. Losers.

FACE THE FACTS, LOSERS said...

The base line is that everyone is better off now than before. Except those of you who had your noses pushed out of the trough. It isn't rocket science. Everyone I know is better off. Jobs, cars, houses, BBQ, lots of grog. Everyone happy except you. Why don't you just enjoy yourselves in Sydney like Rajend Naidu and the loser Rajen Chaudhry? Why spoil our weekend with you BS? Nobody cares who the opposition leader is. They are both losers and the Baini is da man. Roll on 2018 so they can take more seats off you pigs and scum. You screwed up Fiji. THey rebuilt it. That's why they won and you are history.

editor,
We read in the Fiji Times (15/11) that the "Auditor- General Tevita Bolanavanua has recommended that a detailed investigation be conducted into how the Ministry of Industry and Trade awarded the consultancy contract of $500,000 for the restructure of Rewa Co-operative Dairy Company (RCDC) to accounting firm Aliz Pacific without going through an open tender process".
Did nepotism and favouritism play a part in the awarding of the tender?
Who was the Minister of Industry and Trade? Who owns Aliz Pacific? Are they related? What is their relationship?
When Frank Bainimarama took over the Government of Fiji in 2006 with the promise to the people of Fiji to clean up on corruption, nepotism, favouritism, racism and bad governance in all its manifestations I rushed in to support the takeover.(That is on the records in the public domain). But it took me a very short time (thankfully) to realise I had made a mistake. That the Bainimarama takeover was not about ending nepotism etc and providing good governance. It was a power grab - pure and simple. I swiftly withdrew my support and became a critic - described by the "independent" journalism Graham Davis as a " nuisance".
With the belated release of the Auditor-General's findings I feel vindicated.
It provides concrete evidence of the misrule that characterised the Bainimarama government's 8 years of arbitrary rule in the country.
Let us see what comes out of the Auditor General's recommendation for a "detailed investigation" into the dubious RCDC deal , among the many others he has identified.

Dr. Sharma and Fiji govt.
Seems Fiji Sun and Current Fiji govt is so desperate to tarnish Biman' s name that they are hiring a loser to write for them. Dr. Sharma was fired from Fiji Metro, then from FNU for forging his CV. He is now a no body, staying at home and hallunicating. His writing style proves that indeed he is a poor cheating academic. No wonder he is loved by Fiji Sun and the govt. After all it is full of cheaters, killers, liers, those who plagiarise, and corrupt ones anyway.

Rajend Naidu, you are an effing idiot. "Who owns Air Pacific?" It just goes to show out of touch you are. It's been two years since the national airline was renamed but you wouldn't notice living in Sydney and obviously never visiting Fiji. Graham Davis is wrong. You aren't a nuisance. You are a dumb arsed effing fool with a big ego but no brains. Eff off.

Jyoti Pratibha of Coconut Wireless, Fiji Sun (15/11) tries to concoct a controversy regarding the appointment of Professor Biman Prasad as chair of the Public Accounts Committee.
She needs reminding that the appointment was made lawfully by a person vested with the lawful authority to do so.
Question is why does Jyoti Pratibha find Professor Prasad's appointment objectionable?
Who is she speaking for?

I am not a SODELPA or any party supporter. I support what I regard is right. In that I am only guided by my intellect and my conscience. I never accept what others - especially what powerholders and mediocre journalists - say. Let me give an example to make my point.
One M M Mudiliar of Auckland wrote a letter to editor to the Fiji Times to say it was the norm for international election observers to monitor national elections as international best practice. So there was nothing untoward in the presence of over 90 international observers in the Fiji 2013 elections. I asked Mr Mudiliar how many international observers monitored the NZ 2013 Elections? Mr Mudiliar did not respond but I got a reply from the NZ elections office to say there were no international observers present at the NZ elections. The reply has rendered Mr Mudiliar's claim to be false.
So don't take others word as gospel. Establish the facts for yourself. Make up your own mind. What's the use of having it if you don't use it!

editor,
It is mind boggling to read the Speaker of Parliament is "to rule on the public conduct of Dr Prasad" (Fiji Sun 16/11).
What public conduct? Professor Biman Prasad is an elected member of parliament and lawfully appointed chair of the Public Accounts Committee.
If he cannot speak FREELY on the matters of grave PUBLIC concern raised in the findings of the Auditor-General in his report on the conduct of government business for the period 2007-2013, who can?
What kind of parliamentary democracy does Fiji have when the chair of the Public Accounts Committee, note the operative word,public, is being cynically censored from engaging in a public discussion?
There is clearly a hidden agenda in going after Professor Prasad.
The parliament - the Supreme House of the People - should not be wasting time and energy on the "public conduct" of this untainted member of parliament and chair of PAC when there are "widespread abuse" on the part of State officials for it to deal with.
The Parliament and the media need to get their focus and priority right - for the PUBLIC GOOD.

This is ANOTHER ATTEMPT BY BAINISONA AND KAIYUM TO DECEIVE THE PEOPLE....They are trying really hard to get rid of Biman so that he does not expose what they've done..

LET US NOT BE FOOLED BY THESE TWO.
Indians DONT BE FOOLED!
Fijians DONT BE FOOLED!

THE WHOLE IDEA OF HAVING AN AUDITOR GENERALS REPORT IS....so that the public can SEE where there money is going.

WHAT ARE THESE ARSEHOLES,Bai & Kai, TRYING TO HIDE?

They say they are against CORRUPTION ....

BUT ACTION SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

The very action of trying to suppress The Auditor General's REPORT is CORRUPTION in itself.

Rt Mara never suppressed The Auditor Generals Report.
Rabuka never suppressed The Auditor General
Qarase never suppressed The Auditor Generals Report.

So come to these 2, Bai & Kai, they are doing their best to suppress it.

ITS BECAUSE ALL THEIR TALK ABOUT ELIMINATING CORRUPTION IS ALL LIES.IN FACT THEY ARE LEADING IT.

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE GULLIBLE AND BELIEVE WHAT THESE TWO CORRUPT LIARS ARE SAYING.

WE SHOULD ALL FIGHT AGAINST THESE TWO.
Indians, Fijians, soldiers , civilians, we should all fight against these two corrupt arseholes.

Somebody in the Fiji First Party Government found what Dr Biman Prasad, the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, said in public in the media regarding the Auditor-General's Report unpalatable.
That is the nature of the "public conduct" for which Dr Prasad is being attacked.
Who found Dr Prasad's public comments unpalatable?
Who are behind the attack on Dr Prasad?
Is any clue required?

editor,
In his interview with Karla Grant on SBS Living Black (16/11), five time Gold Logie winning Australian television journalist and entertainment personality Ray Martin said power should be given to government, police and security forces "very sparingly". He said we should be weary of giving them "too much" power because they are bound to abuse it as has been shown over time.
It is hard to disagree with that.
Now, did the people in the Bainimarama regime in the period 2007 - 2013 have "too much" power?
Was the widespread abuse recorded by the Auditor-General a consequence of this unfettered power?
It is something to think about - objectively.

editor,
Charles Chambers tells us rather condescendingly in his letter 'Public accounts'(Fiji Times 17/11)that we have moved away from "the same old politics". Have we?
But more importantly have we moved away from the corruption and bad governance and bad management of public money that the Bainimarama regime promised when it took over the Government of Fiji?
This far exceeds any harm that "old politics" ( a propaganda term used by the Bainimarama regime and its apologists)has caused the country as the Auditor-General's report so succinctly points out.
Chambers would be making a positive contribution for the betterment of the country by concentrating on THAT rather than telling the Public Accounts Committee chair Professor Biman Prasad what he should or should not be doing?
I would contend Professor does not need the unsolicited advice of Mr Chambers to carry out his duty - to the people of Fiji.
And, he should be allowed to do that without any let and hindrance from the people in power and their sycophants.

editor,
We live and we learn. Another day and we get another lesson on realpolitik. On how business is really conducted on the international political stage - with hypocrisy and political expediency.
The lesson comes by way of Alan Kennedy's letter in the smh 18/11. He writes, " Wouldn't it be nice to think that people asked to address our democratically elected parliament were representatives of a democratic political system? On Monday we had China's Xi Jinping from the largest totalitarian kleptocracy in the world given the privelege of speaking on the floor of our parliament. Soon China will move to crush the democrats on the streets of Hong Kong and we will sit quietly by because we have a[lucrative]free trade agreement[with China]..." ('China free trade deal to be worth billions' Nov.17)
What this tells us is that we should not be surprised by anything that happens on the political front because it is based on what is politically expedient rather than what is right.

The DPP Christopher Pryde is a Bai-Kai lackey. That is a FACT beyond any reasonable doubt. No amount of verbal gymnastics will alter that fact. As a lackey he went to the UN Human rights review in Geneva with Khaiyum's delegation to lie to the UN panel that the human rights situation in Fiji was all good when the evidence did not support that.

editor,
Egypt has had a democratic election of sorts and the military coup leader/dictator has become its popularly elected President.
But we read in the Human Rights watch report 'Egypt : Unprecedented Expansion of Military Courts-Decree Broadens Jurisdiction Over Civilians' (17/11) that the ways of the military dictatorship remain intact.
"An October 27 decree by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt vastly extended the reach of the country's military courts and risks miliitarizing prosecution of protesters and other government opponents. The new law, decreed by al-Sisi in the absence of parliament, places all "public and vital facilities"under military jurisdiction for the next two years and directs state prosecutors to refer crimes at those places to their military counterparts, paving the way for further military trials of civilians. Egypt's military courts, which lack even the shaky due process guaranteesby regular courts, have tried more than 11,000 civilians since the 2011 uprising. "This law represents another nail in the coffin of justice in Egypt" said Sarah Leah Whitson, MiddleEast and North Africa director. "Its absurdly broad provisions mean that many more civilians who engage in protests can now expect to face trial before uniformed judges subject o the orders of their military superiors"...
So what kind of democracy, rule of law, and human rights does Egypt now have with its transition from military rule to democracy?
But this questionable democracy and rule of law does not stop the US from providing additional aid to the Egyptian State and its military.
Why? Where is the commitment to democracy?

I notice from his letters that Lawrence H Narayan of Suva usually peddles religious or more precisely Christain religious mumbo jumbo when he writes to the local dailies.
But today in his letter titled 'Accountability' in the Bainimarama regime mouthpiece paper the Fiji Sun he peddles regime propaganda by castigating J Nakarawa of Hamilton NZ for "having a biased view on the current Government's spending and accountability" and for not questioning " any previous Government's illegal spending reported by the Auditor-General"
What rubbish! But typical regime propaganda to deflect attention from the issue at hand which is the Auditor-General's report of the widespread abuse over the past 7 years under the unelected Bainimarama regime.
From his contributions in the Fiji newspapers I get a strong sense that J Nakarawa is"truly concerned about Fiji and its people and is a man of principles".
As a defender or mouthpiece of the rot produced by the current Government( Bainimarama, Khaiyum and their cronies) I have serious doubts about Lawrence H Narayan being a man of principles.
He should take a good hard look at his moral compass.

We learn from the Fiji Times that Fijian historian,academic and author Professor Brij Lal was awarded the Distinguished Achievement Award of the International Association for the Study of Migration and Indenture at a conference in Mauritius last week .
The same man was abused,manhandled and bundled out of his home country not too long back simply because he held a view on the situation prevailing in the country that the mob in power, the unelected people who were running the country, found unpalatable.
We should be ashamed of the way we treated one of our own accomplished countryman.

The UN has adopted a landmark resolution to refer the North Korean dictatorship to the ICC for alleged crimes against humanity( Aljazeera 19/11).
Was the charge framed from former judge Michael Kirby's findings?
This UN resolution must be music to the ears of the oppressed, repressed, suppressed and terrorised ordinary people of North Korea.
The UN must not tolerate State abuse of citizens. It must be seen to have zero tolerance of State abuse of citizens.

Vishwa Nadan says "those of you who voted for SODELPA, now you're seeing the quality of people you have voted into Parliament" (Fiji Sun 20Nov). He is refering to SODELPA's decision to boycott the special "Parliament sitting" to mark Indian PM Narendra Modi's visit.
Are those who voted for Frank Bainimarama and his Fiji First Party now seeing the quality of people they voted for in light of the Auditor-General's revelations of ABUSE by the Bainimarama government from 2007-2013?
I guess not.
People see only what they want to see and that is seeing in a very cockeyed way.
See Professor Warden Narsey's letter in the Fiji Times 20 Nov for an alternative view on the boycott.

Fiji is entering a dangerous unprecedented time, whilst people Lorded over one another as children do, the clear ones, those behind the scenes are slowly but surely taking away poor people's money in the name of revolution. The job of the PAC is to tell those us people where our bloody money has gone to? It is the fiduciary responsibility of the Auditor General to inform the public about that...why is it this unprofessional way in which these MP's are behaving particularly the one opposing the resumption of the sitting? It does not take a rocket scientist to discern the sinister ploy "juggle over the standing over" when it is crystal clear that violaters of national coffers should be summoned immediately for questioning as the 2013 demanded.
