FijiLeaks reports that Tevita Gonelevu and Tanya Waqanika REVEAL ALL to Bainimarama, requesting that Bainimarama charge Khaiyum with criminal offences arising out of his fraudulent, criminal threats and intimidation, and duress against Fiji TV Board Members. This is interesting because Bainimarama is benefiting directly from Khaiyum's criminal and corrupt activities and deals. Therefore it is highly unlikely that Bainimarama will charge khaiyum with any crime.
Is the complaint expecting Bainimarama to actually charge khaiyum? It's highly unlikely that Bainimarama will do anything. Remember the Military Council. They also complained and recommended, several times, to Bainimarama to have Khaiyum removed. Bainimarama agreed each time but did nothing. Brigadier Pita Driti also approached Bainimarama about removing Khaiyum but he was told to "walk out", as nothing would be done. Brig Driti is now serving time in prison.
Fiji is a country without the rule of law! Where the military dictator, Bainimarama, does whatever he wants, when he wants and how he wants. Any resistance is met with brutality, threats, jail time and loss of employment or business licences, or all of the above, etc.
Educated people know that Bainimarama committed treason, murder, rape and theft of native lands and even rigged an election to avoid going to prison. They also know that Bainimarama, so far, has managed to to avoid prison with help from his military puppet officers and goons, foreign governments, and direction provided by Khaiyum and Khaiyum's group of conniving and corrupt parasites. BUT, in particular, they know that it is khaiyum who provides Bainimarama and his family with all the illegal riches [far beyond their dreams and natural abilities] that have been stolen from the people of Fiji. This includes enabling Frank and his wife Mary Bainimarama to purchase homes and luxury items with cash, when in 2006 they were ALL [Khaiyum included] close to bankruptcy.
Yes, the dictator, Frank Bainimarama, leaves the running of Fiji to his corrupt and lying AG, Khaiyum [junior] while he, Bainimarama, enjoys his ill-gotten riches and travels the world, living up the high life. So it is highly unlikely that Bainimarama will do anything to spoil his new gotten wealth and continued freedom from prison.
However, some suggest that providing a written complaint to Bainimarama has the added benefit of also informing the people. Really? How? Especially when there is still no freedom of speech and no free media. Besides, the Fiji courts are all dictated to by khaiyum and it doesn't really matter what the people of Fiji think. After getting away with rigging one election , it is almost certain that all following elections will also be rigged in Bainimarama's favour. UNLESS, of course, the opposition parties and the people stand-up together for their basic rights and do something about it. BUT, so far the opposition parties have shown little ability, or backbone, to do what needs to be done to lead the oppressed people to freedom.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Albert Einstein said that "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness [thinking] that created it". If Einstein is correct, then how the hell can the opposition party, who were in control of Fiji and unable to stop a bully from overthrowing their government, be able to free the oppressed people of Fiji, using their same level of thinking. Yes, how?
FIJI TIMES REPORTS that Fiji's Media Industry Development Authority [MIDA] Chairman, Ashwin Raj, will appear in court on a charge of "annoyance", as confirmed by the Police Commissioner Ben Groenewald.
Asked to comment on Mr Groenewald's statement, Mr Raj told the Sunday Times that he would not be saying anything, BUT had described reports of the charge as "malicious allegations". The Commissioner also stated that Raj had also visited his office and lodged an official complaint against the alleged manner in which his case was handled by police officers. The matter has apparently been referred to the Internal Affairs Department for yet another, and almost certain, "KHAIYUM RIGGED" investigation. Click HERE to read more at FijiLeaks.
THE FIJI TIMES reports that Fiji's NATIONAL carrier, Fiji Airways, maintains that its pilots and crew are highly trained and capable of addressing emergencies on flights.
The statement by CEO and managing director Stefan Pichler follows complaints by a passenger on a Fiji Airways flight that had turned back to Nadi after departing for Auckland. However, Fiji Airways also recently stood down one of its pilots from flying after a hard landing of one of its A330 aircraft in Sydney. See picture [courtesy of C4.5] of damage done to the Fiji Airways plane.
These incidents should not come as any surprise given that both the Chief Pilot and the Training and Safety Officer each failed their exams twice and had to resit them a third time when learning to fly the A330 in France. They are responsible for teaching other pilots??!!
What is also scary is that each of these so-called senior, well trained and experienced pilots repeated their failures in Australia. Bloggers have reported that Khaiyum's interference in the running of the National Airlines has dropped safety standards and led to TWO CEO's jumping ship!
FijiTimes reports that SCHOOLS that have asked parents to purchase textbooks in their book lists will be taken to task. A threat given by the Education Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy, in a press briefing.
Reddy stated that all schools were informed last year of the textbook initiative. True, but NOT ALL students will receive their texts books on time, according to Reddy some will need to wait two months, until the end of March before they receive their texts books. And when asked why the ministry decided to make the textbook announcement only a few weeks before the start of the school year, Dr Reddy said the initiative was to allow students to have their own copies of the textboooks. Reddy clearly missed the point of having textbooks issued before the start of the school-year.
What is interesting is that Bainimarama supporters argue that this is not an issue as the students will eventually get their own copy - if at all - just two months late. I suspect these Bainimarama supporters, like Bainimarama himself, have never had the need for such text-books, so receiving it late or never at all is a non-issue for them.
C4.5 REPORTS Sacked Fiji TV executives go after Khaiyum and Board members - One of the two former Fiji TV executives dismissed after the rugby sevens broadcasting controversy has called on the Fiji Law Society to strip Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum of his practising certificate for unethical behaviour.
CEO Tevita Gonelevu and head of content and local productions, Tanya Waqanika, told a press conference today the real story behind their unlawful sackings.
"You cannot be the Minister of Communications and make decisions which are favourable to FBC knowing fully well that what you've done is unethical and unlawful to favour FBC which is headed by your brother," said Waqanika.

This low-down, childish and immature behavior by grown men who run Fiji, Khaiyum and his puppet Bainimarama, (albeit by a rigged election, fear and intimidation) does nothing to promote confidence in foreign investors coming to Fiji - the legal ones - because there is no rule of law in Fiji.
Where are our important people who should be standing up for their rights and their responsibilities, and leading our ordinary people who do not understand what is going on. Where are they?.....still hiding in the shadows, still afraid?!!...or have they (YOU) tasted the sweetness from the corrupt Bainimarama Dictatorship that you have decided to "See none of their evil, Hear None of their Evil and Speak none of their Evil"??!!
What the people of Fiji and our leaders of the opposition parties need to understand is that there is NO Saviour waiting or coming to save us. Not in the mold of Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna, Ma'afu or anyone else for that matter. We THE PEOPLE must act together.
A “true and real” democracy operates on the basis that there is room for choice all the way up to the selection of the government. This implies that the legislature, which makes the laws for the country, must itself provide an opportunity for various views to be heard throughout the term of governance. These views should encompass not only those on the government benches but also those who are opposed to the policies underlying the ways of operation. In other words, lawfully elected representatives of the people must be able to present and discuss alternative policy options even if they are not part of the government and do not have an immediate way of making their plans succeed. This is what should happen under a true democracy, which Fiji does NOT have!
Under Bainimarama’s dictatorship:
Its the duty of the opposition leaders', to themselves and to their voters, to play the role of an alternative government and a government in waiting. They need to develop a better alternative! However, a major challenge for the opposition, given the current oppressive climate, is to be seen as being credible in their role. In order to do that it must be responsible, respected and united as a political party and it must create policies that are relevant to the day-to-day lives of the people and not live in the past.
Meanwhile, in the absence of an effective opposition, the corrupt, lying and criminal dictator, Bainimarama, and his puppet master, run the show while the people are cheated with false promises, bribes and trickery.
Who will lead Fiji to victory and freedom from a corrupt, lying and oppressive Bainimarama dictatorship that has been forced on to the people of Fiji. Who? .....this position is still vacant.
But what is the alternative to the Khaiyum led Bainimarama dictatorship? ....It seems that the previous Qarase years is on offer...with all its issues that have been highlighted since December 2006. We have all been there and each of us knows what we like and dont like about that form of governance. Many of our people have raised issues about it, right or wrong, we are entitled to our opinions. Its Government's responsibility to listen and to do something about it. The current Bainimarama dictatorship does not care!
BUT the Opposition parties don't provide much of an alternative vision for Fiji that is worth fighting for. A vision that includes being harmonious, prosperous, safe and secure and a multiracial Fiji with the rule of law and freedom for all.
The opposition parties and the oppressed cry for freedom, rule of law, proper governance and democracy but they have no clue on how to get it or to defend it when they did have it.
Great Indian joke about cremation after death: “when you are going up in smoke you won't be taking your wealth with you”
Oh what a shame!........Fiji's pro-junta and unethical Fiji Sun newspaper reports that its CORRUPT TRAILBLAZING business leader, CJ Patel, died in Suva! This conniving snake in the grass worked in the background fixing prices, cheating Fijian provinces by selling them goods at highly inflated prices and reporting lies in the news paper to deceive the people of Fiji prior to, during and after the 2014 elections. As a great supporter and benefactor of the Fiji dictatorship, CJ Patel was able to illegally acquire the Rewa Dairy company.
We all know that Fiji's lying, criminal dictator, Frank Bainimarama, and his group of vile parasitic supporters are corrupt and leading Fiji to wreck and ruin.
We all know they committed treason, murder, torture, sedition and theft of native lands. We also know that they rigged the 2014 elections with help and blessings of our neighbours. We also know that Bainimarma and Khaiyum have been stealing millions of dollars for themselves and their family and friends creating the highest levels of debt, highest levels of unemployment, highest cost of living and the destruction of our essential fishing and sugar industries. Its the worst in Fiji's history. Bainimarama's record and list of crimes and corruption is the worst Fiji has ever encountered and its getting worse. We already know this nd there is evidence all over the internet and in private files and affidavits.
We also know that Bainimarama and Khaiyum cant afford to lose any election and therefore have resorted to lies, intimidation, illegal decrees, torture, murder and childish tanturms to ensure they remain in power and out of prison. It does not matter if the opposition party has 90% of the voters. It does not matter because Bainimarama and Khaiyum will continue to rig the elections in their favour! Its already happened.
So what is the opposition doing about it.......more useless talk and repeating what everyone already knows about the dictator's lies, corruption and stupidity. The opposition are also crying to the international community to do something about it for them. This will not return Fiji to true democracy.
Meanwhile, the opposition parties already have their best asset, the people. They just need to grow the right stuff and stop wishing for someone else to do something about it. The opposition parties need to start acting like leaders and lead our people to victory and to freedom and democracy.
More and more of Bainimarama and Khaiyum's corruption is being revealed. Click HERE to read the story on FijiLeaks on BANOGATE GETS MURKIER BY THE DAY: Now OAG Report detailing the Rewa Dairy-Aliz Pacific Limited payments has VANISHED from OAG Site.
The seven sets of reports by Fiji’s Auditor General, 28 reports in total, provides clear evidence that Bainimarama and Khaiyum have been lying to, making a fool of and stealing millions from the people of Fiji, since December 2006. Bainimarama and Khaiyum’s corruption and blatant mismanagement of Fiji’s resources and finances, detailed in these reports, is criminal. Both Qarase and Mac Patel were jailed by Bainimarama’s kangaroo court for far lesser crimes!
From 2007 to 2013 these Auditor General reports were deliberately hidden from the people of Fiji by the corrupt, lying dictator, Frank Bainimarama, the self-appointed, deceitful and unqualified Minister of Finance. Fiji’s first fraudulently elected and criminal PM.
For eight years Khaiyum and Bainimarama illegally dictated how Fiji raised taxes and foreign and domestic loans, and they spent this [Fiji’s] income, on themselves, and their corrupt family and friends. The people got the cheap end of the deal – new fancy looking roads that wash away during heavy rains, clearly only cosmetic roads designed to easily fool the uneducated people of Fiji!
Now after winning a blatantly rigged election, endorsed by the deceitful and corrupt foreign observer group, the Auditor General’s reports are released revealing the truth about Bainimarama’s corruption.
Professor Biman Prasad, the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee which is charged with examining the AG Reports, 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 also 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.

Australia's Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, said Australia has lifted all its sanctions on Fiji that were imposed after the military takeover in 2006. It was a fulfillment of Australia's election commitment and a commitment to taking the relationship with Fiji into a new era of partnership and prosperity. This comes as no surprise given Australia and New Zealand's quick acceptance of Fiji's rigged election result.
The reality for Fiji is that people are the only ones who can effect change in Fiji. They can not rely on Australia and/or New Zealand for assistance. Therefore, the opposition party leaders need to, themselves, take actual, positive and concrete action to free Fiji. They must stop expecting other nations to do it for them.
Why have two CEO's resigned from the dictator's proclaimed highly profitable and successful Fiji Airways? And after such a short time with the airlines. Did they each resign after finally realising that the airlines is being run by criminal khaiyum and that they are just puppets expected to do as khaiyum dictates? The world knows that Fiji Airways is based on lies, corruption and fraud aimed solely at benefiting the dictator and his family and friends!
THE Fiji Airways board said it will immediately begin looking for someone to fill the shoes of the outgoing managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler who had announced his resignation to join Air Berlin in February next year.
The corrupt Board chairman Nalin Patel said the exit of Mr Pichler would not affect the development plans of the national carrier and that Great progress has been made at Fiji Airways and the company is definitely on track for a successful future. So why would anyone want to leave a company that is on track for a successful future?! Yes, why indeed?
Mr Pichler said that "It is with tears in my eyes that I have to leave the most rewarding job in my career," Really!! Its so rewarding that he is running away to a less rewarding job. Who does that for that reason?! Only a fool would and Pichler is no fool!
It is indeed a very sad day for Fiji when its true HEROES and LEADERS are forgotten, especially on the orders of criminals running from the law, who were not able to lead fiji legitimately except through cunning, lies, torture, treason, murder, vote rigging and corruption.
Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna is being remembered and commemorated by the French for his and other Fijian's dedication and contributions made during WWI.
Titled World War I and Ratu Sukuna the exhibition at the Fiji Museum, in collaboration with the National Archives and the French Embassy, will conduct a five-month exhibition.
Fiji played its part during the war both financially and with manpower and this 100th anniversary highlights the efforts and the sacrifices that our forefathers [men and women] contributed to the war to help the world in peace keeping.
Sadly, Fiji's criminal dictator and Fraudulently elected Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama, and his conniving and treasonous President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, and their supporters, are holding Fiji hostage under military rule administered by the corrupt and deceitful Khaiyum. This is how low Fiji has come!
Now, only the people of Fiji can restore Fiji to its true freedom: free from intimidation, free from torture and murder, free speech and a free media, freedom of religion and having the rule of law! This freedom all comes at a price that, unlike our forefathers, the opposition parties are clearly NOT able or willing to pay. Instead they want to lead Fiji for free, without having to pay for the cost of freedom!!
Fiji's 2014 elections was rigged with help from corrupt and deceitful individuals, organisations, countries and the so-called high calibre and credible [NOT] MOG. Prof Wadan Narsey explains here that the 2014 Fiji elections was 'Far from free and fair: and it is another victory for treason, lies, deceit, money and the culture of silence.
