The Fiji Times reports Men on the run [July 16, 2014] and that the Fiji Police is warning members of the public that harbouring prisoners is a serious offence. Oh really!!
If so then why has the NEW police commissioner, with all his righteous experience from South Africa, not arrested the dictator Bainimarama and his parasitic master, Khaiyum?! The dictators 2006 coup was ruled illegal by Fiji's legitimate Court of Appeal and, therefore, any and all decisions and decrees by the dictator's junta are also illegal!
So in reality, so far, the new police commissioner, Major General Bernadus Groenewald, is just another puppet here in Fiji to collect a lavish pay-check while he awaits the angel of death to take to full-time retirement!
The police warning comes as a nationwide search was launched yesterday for three remand prisoners who have been on the run for three days. Bainimarama, khaiyum, ratu Epeli Nailatikau, ratu kubu-abola, hari Punja and Tappoos and their supporters have been on the run since December 2006! AND they are still walking around today right in front of the police [love is surely blind]!!
Police West spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said that one of the prisoners was wanted for a case of murder, BUT so is Frank Bainimarama who is also wanted for murder of CRW soldiers and an unborn child !!! And everyone knows where he lives!!!
Ragigia goes on to say that the other two prisoners were wanted for cases relating to robbery with violence and impersonating a public officer. BUT impersonating a public officer is exactly what Bainimarama, Khaiyum, ratu Nailatikau, ratu kubu-abola are all doing, so arrest them too!
One of the prisoners was in remand for a case of murder that took place in Naisaumua, Tailevu last year. He is also referred to as 'mongoose'. BUT Bainimarama is out free for a case of murdering his own CRW soldiers in 2000 and murdering an innocent baby in 2006. Frank Bainimarama is also referred to as "lamu sona, coward, luve ni kaisi, bakola, pig, dictator, and poo-poo pants, to name just a few.
Another prisoner is known for offences relating to robbery with violence, aggravated robbery, and theft. AND SO are Khaiyum and Bainimarama! They are robbing Fiji of its wealth and lands!
Ragigia said that members of the public are urged to be aware of such people and to contact the nearest police station or post if they have any information on the escapees. Meanwhile, what about the numerous complaints that have been lodged with the police about Bainimarama and Kahiyum and their corrupt and illegal practices, intimidation and fear tactics, etc! NO ACTION TAKEN BY POLICE!!
The SODELPA march through the sugar city shows that the Fiji Sun is deliberately running a fraudulent campaign filled with lies to make the dictator Bainimarama and his corrupt FijiFirst party appear to be the people's favourite. What bullshit! Bainimarama and Fiji First party are not the majority favourite!
The corrupt CJ PATEL who owns the Fiji Sun and now Rewa Dairy, is nothing more than a crook who will do and say any vile disgusting thing to fill his bank accounts - this includes stealing from the poor people of Fiji!
One way or another, there will be another COUP in Fiji come September 2014! It will either be:

The FijiToday blog writes Why does Frank boast he’ll win all 50 seats?
Bainimarama’s arrogant boast that he can win all 50 seats won’t surprise too many people. What else would we expect from a dictator who thinks his is the only view anyone should be able read in the media? But there’s more to it than that.
He has to hand out places on the FF party list which will determine who on his list will actually get a seat in parliament. He assumes that his voting system means he can win more votes than he needs for one seat and then the other candidates will get his surplus votes in the order in which they are on the party list.
So he has to give a number of higher places to Indo-Fijians or his government will look like his officer’s mess at QEB, a mono-ethnic sham. When we see the party candidates we’ll all be looking for how many credible Indo-Fijian candidates he can muster. Then when we see where he puts them on a list they will know how serious he is about them winning.
Bainimarama claims he can win all seats – meaning they don’t need to worry about where they are on the list – but we know that’s not true, he knows it’s not true and the candidates all know it’s not true.
All the FijiFirst candidates will understand that their chances of winning will depend on when they get their invite and where they are on Frank’s (well we all know it will be Khaiyum’s) list.

Bainimarama & Khaiyum reveal SOME of their Assets.
Shazzer & Grubby that Bainimarama has finally revealed his pay. It comes in at nearly $280,000. That makes Frank Bainimarama the highest paid Prime Minister EVER in Fiji’s History. There is NO WAY TO VERIFY these claims because:
If you are a regime supporter or the Fiji Sun you will take them at face Value but if you are a thinking voter or even a true journalist you will want to have some questions answered.
1- When Bainimarama held the coup he insisted all ministers have a 30% pay cut. He himself said he would continue to receive only the commanders pay of circa $70,000. He is now receiving 4 times that amount. Who else in Fiji has had a fourfold increase in Salary in the last 8 years? Most people are now earning less in real terms than they were in 2006.
He went on the record in 2006 and said NO ONE INVOLVED IN THE COUP would benefit financially. $280,000 IS A HUGE BENEFIT
2- Who authorized Bainimarama’s massive pay increase?
3- When did he get his 400% pay Rise?
3- Why is he paid by Aliz Pacific and not by the Ministry of Finance?
4- Where are the declarations about his children?
5- Are there any Trust accounts of which he or any member of his family is a beneficiary, a contributor or a Trustee?
LASTLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY what about his alleged undeclared income.
• The brown envelopes from Chinese developers,
• The Overseas payments from wealthy businessmen,
• The freebies he and his family get.
Someone did some analysis on FB's salary. and it's implications.
It seems to me that Frank Bainimarama has paid himself off an unreasonable salary when the rest of Fiji is getting poorer at 43% poverty level, the worst in history.
What is more interesting is this: Frank Bainimarama has been in power for 8.5 years so on the basis of the above annual income, Frank Bainimarama would have now received a cumulative salary/allowance of at least $2,601,000 (oops almost fell off my chair writing this) since he took over power.
Frank Bainimarama’s bank savings is actually a staggering FD$255,000 (1/4 of million dollars) which is unusually high for an indigenous Fijian whose family has quickly acquired a very lavish lifestyle ( weekends at top local hotels, overseas jaunts and whole family at HK 7s, shopping, etc.) that are costly and expensive and chews up the family savings.
Most well off Fijians I know are asset rich but cash flow poor because of the demands of their traditional obligations and extended family kerekere - their savings are usually low.
What is surprising to me is that despite Frank Bainimarama’s family's expensive lifestyle, he still has 1/4 million stashed in the bank. Its been reported that he has paid back the $184,700 illegal leave claim paid to him at the start of the coup - thank God he did that otherwise he would have $439,700 (savings + leave payment) stashed in the bank. Add to this F$400,000 for his FNFP for the accumulated F$2.6 million salary.
The calculation of Frank Bainimarama FB's net worth (net assets) also does not add up or make sense stating that his net assets is USD28,000 or F$47,600. His declared assets are a car (USD29,000 or F$49,300) and a Nadi property (USD 13,000 or F$22,100) with a total asset value of F$71,400. Then how can he explain a bank debt of USD164,000 or F$278,800 when he does not have the corresponding assets to back it up as collateral? His debt exceeds his assets by $207,400 - how did he manage to borrow this money from bank without adequate security and what did he spend it on other than the two assets he has declared? No bank that I know gives an unsecuritized personal loan of F$207,400 (balance of total F$278,800 bank debt after accounting for the declared assets).
The million dollar question is this: how much savings did Frank Bainimarama have before the coup, based on his Commander salary compared to what he now has in the bank? This will give us an idea of how much Frank Bainimarama has gained financially from the coup.
Someone from his bank can simply check his savings in June-November 2006 and make the comparison. I still recall Frank Bainimarama saying earlier on that no-one - no one from the army will benefit from the coup - what a load of crap! $2.6 million in total salaries and 1/4 million bank savings (saved only 9.8% of his income) plus F$400,000 in FNPF. Well there we go folks! More food for thought.
Its funny that when people report their incomes just like businesses and corporates, lets not take it as gospel until when its properly audited. Frank Bainimarama's financial reporting of his income and assets is unaudited [and not checked and verified by any independent entity] so its only as good as Frank Bainimarama’s word and he does have a record of easily lying to anyone.
More importantly, the basis of my doubt comes from the very important question as to why their salaries had to be paid through Aunty Nur's accounting firm, who is of serious doubtful character? This is unlawful because all government transactions including salaries can only be paid through the Treasury. Why couldn't Frank Bainimarama do this and have their salaries paid through Treasury if it was above board?
A Government Treasury salary statement is a credible document that confirms how much a government official is paid. Is Frank Bainimarama hiding something because that is the only conclusion I am left with since Frank Bainimarama has not given us a reasonable explanation.
I leave it to you to make your own conclusions!
One thing is clear though, Frank Bainimarama has become really rich since the coup:
Remember we have not even considered his children's financial standing and wealth (all of them had nothing before the coup).
Guys don't get me wrong: I am not doing any digging I am just analyzing the figures already provided by Frank Bainimarama.
THE Fiji Times reported, on Sunday, August 12, 2007, the torture that awaited Fiji Women's Rights Movement executive director, Virisila Buadromo on Christmas eve 2006 when she was taken to the army camp by a group of soldiers to be questioned over her anti-military comments following the 5 December 2006 coup, is something she never thought would happen in Fiji.
REMEMBER that Bainimarama carried out his illegal coup in 2006 to save himself from being arrested and from going to prison for his crimes that include:
In an interview on the Australian SBS television program Dateline, Ms Buadromo vividly recalled the night of her life she will never forget.
But her claims, according to military spokesman, Major Neumi Leweni [the former military band master who was quickly promoted to a Major due his ability to speak better English than his commander Frank Bainimarama] are just that, claims!
"If people like Virisila think or believe they were mistreated they should raise it with the relevant authorities," Major Leweni said, without offering any further comment yesterday. Leweni intentionally omitted that fact that the “relevant authorities” were also taking part in the assaults of citizens!
Ms Buadromo's experience of military brutality is not an isolated one.
Many similar horrific stories have been told by those who were alleged to have been tortured by soldiers.
Fiji Times reports Ms Buadromo's account of her detention at the military's Nabua camp as told on Dateline during an interview with reporter Bronwyn Adcock back in 2007.
Human rights worker, Virisila Buadromo knew she was in trouble when she heard herself named on radio by Commodore Bainimarama.
Virisila: He specifically named myself as well as one of my board members, as people who were not helping Fiji get back on the straight and narrow.
Just before midnight last Christmas Eve (24 December, 2006), Virisila was taken from her home by the military.
She had run an advertisement giving out Bainimarama's mobile phone number and urging opponent's of the coup to text him. She was taken into the barracks.
VIRISILA BUADROMO: They kept on asking me in Fijian, who did I think I was, you know, putting out the Commander's mobile number, publicising his mobile number, do you realise what you have done.
While questioning me they had a gun which they uncocked and cocked and they put it to my head and just saying, you know what we could do with this.
Virisila was then made to lay face down in the rain, along with six other pro-democracy activists.
VIRISILA BUADROMO: That's when they started to physically abuse us. One of the things which I thought was quite strange, they asked all the females, "are you pregnant?" I was like no, and I was wondering what that was about.
I remember Laisa saying yes and then immediately they just, with their boots stamped on your back, on your lower back. So they did it to all three females.
REPORTER: Did they do it to the woman who said she was pregnant.
VIRISILA BUADROMO: Yeah, they did it to all of us, I thought if she said yes, they wouldn't, but they did.
I didn't think they would but they still did it and that's when they started really physically assaulting us, smacking, boxing your ears, so to speak, smacking up your ears, hitting your face with their boots, kicking you in the ribs and they made us lick their boots, do really degrading things like that.
Then they started to threaten our families.
They knew all these details about our families and they basically said things like "You know we could kill you now, put a bullet through all your heads, put you in a drum and throw you out of the wharf of or down at the Suva harbour, no-one would know and no-one would miss you".
VIRISILA BUADROMO: Before, I would never have thought twice about putting out a statement. I never would have thought about putting out a statement, gotta say something, whereas now, following what happened to me, I am very aware of not the repercussions on me but my staff being threatened and another of my colleagues has been threatened recently.
We have to be careful about these things. We are operating in an environment of fear, you never know.
Now the dictator Frank Bainimarama isgoing around the country in his blue pathetic bus bribing and fooling the innocent and less educated people of Fiji into voting for him, so that he can remain in power and continue to steal Fiji’s wealth for himself and his corrupt group of family and friends! While the rest of Fiji suffers:
All this nasty and evil events, according to New Zealand’s Prime Minister, John Key and his Foreign Minister Murray McCully, is all part of holding Free and Fair democratic elections in Fiji – Yeah Right!
FijiVillage.com reported that the very big, hairy and scary FIJIFIRST Yeti made his first appearance at Fiji Showcase, held at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.
The FijiFirst Party has “officially” started off its campaign, even though its criminal leader and illegal PM and Dictator of Fiji, Bainimarama, has been campaigning for the past few years using taxpayer funds, bribes, false promises and lies! There is also still no confirmation on when it will announce its LIST OF proposed criminal and parasitic candidates.
With JUST UNDER 71 days to go to the September 17th general election, the illegal and self-appointed Attorney General and Minister of Elections, who is also the General Secretary of the FijiFirst party, Khaiyum, said they were still in the process of identifying suitable [and no doubt of a corrupt nature] candidates for the party.
He also said FijiFirst is trying to get new people in and this is taking some time. Given their record of appointing people with a criminal past, like their FijiFirst convicted party president, it will take some time to find suitably corrupt people willing to look the other way when it comes to Bainimarama and Khaiyum’s corruption, arrogance. Land grab, lies and dictatorship!
No timeframe has been set for when FijiFirst will announce its proposed candidates. AND the world waits to see what criminals and parasites will enlist. This will make it easy to identify whom to be arrested after the elections, when Bainimarama fails to win.
Have you been wondering why NZ is so keen on supporting Fiji's dictator, Bainimarama, and his minority group of thugs -- who committed treason, murder, rape, torture, sedition and corruption - to name just a few of their many evils -- while ignoring the cries for help from the majority of the people of Fiji who are living under a daily cloud of fear and oppression?
Stuff.co.nz provides an insight to this remarkable bloody wonder!
Remember that NZ, under the National Party led by John Keys, is eager for a seat on the UN Security council but its current leaders have been unwilling to help a neighbouring country in need, Fiji, to stop a military coup in 2006 or remove its dictator.
The democratically elected Prime Minister of Fiji, Mr Qarase, asked for help in 2006 and was ignored. Then New Zealand also ignores the torture and murder of citizens under the Bainimarama dictatorship. Instead, NZ clearly offers support for the dictator and his illegal military junta to appease the USA and its relationship with China - the USA de-facto landlord.
If New Zealand cant help the oppressed peoples of Fiji, in a small neighbouring country, how the hell can they help anyone else?? So why the hell does NZ want a seat on the UN Security Council?!
Stuff.co.nz reported that US President Obama met with NZ Prime Minister John Key at the White House, last month, and had expressed an interest in visiting New Zealand before the end of his presidential term.
After talks lasting well over an hour, Obama said he had indicated to Key that he would "love to come to New Zealand because I hear it's really nice and I know the people are nice because I've had a chance to meet [Key].
"So we are going to be working with my schedule to see what I can come up with - if not this year then certainly before the end of my presidency."
.....The US president also referred to the US military's relaxation of its ban on New Zealand naval vessels berthing at American military facilities.
"I'm proud that my original home state of Hawaii is going to be welcoming a New Zealand ship coming into port for the first time in a couple of decades and we're very proud of that. I'm sure you will get a good welcome when they come. And although obviously New Zealand is a small country with a small armed forces, the cooperation we have on intelligence issues, New Zealand's excellent efforts when it comes to training and participating in peacekeeping operations, makes it an invaluable partner."
Key acknowledged the role played by the US on the world stage and told the President: "There's never an easy day here in the Oval Office".
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Key said the meeting had been a great opportunity to reaffirm the relationship between New Zealand and the United States.
"Top of that list was the TPP and the capacity for the partners to reach an agreement; I feel very confident after the meeting that a high quality comprehensive deal can be achieved. There's a lot more work to be done and its never over till its over but I think there's a willingness on the part of the partners and the US and New Zealand have always been firmly of the view that the TPP was good for [our]countries and for the region."
On the prospect of Obama visiting New Zealand, Key said the President's schedule was "hellish" but "he will be in the region ... and I certainly wouldn't rule out that he might make a trip".
Key also acknowledged the President's role in removing the ban on New Zealand naval vessels.
The US banned New Zealand naval vessels from docking at its military facilities in retaliation for our nuclear free legislation which effectively prohibits US warships from visiting New Zealand due to the American navy's policy of neither confirming nor denying if a warship is carrying nuclear weapons.
"I think the President himself thought it was pretty silly that a New Zealand naval vessel would be parked up at the commercial part of Honolulu port and actually on a training exercise with the US would not actually be in that military facility. And I think it was the President's intervention himself that said 'this just needs to be resolved'. It's not a big thing in itself but it's a tangible sign of the warmth of the relationship."....

Shazzer & Grubby writes that Bainimarama the hypocritical hypochondriac travels to China for Medical treatment.
Earlier this year Bainimarama said “It includes creating medical facilitates that are clean, well maintained and salubrious to MAKING PATIENTS FEEL GOOD ABOUT AND CONFIDENT IN THE FIJI PUBLIC HEALTH SYSTEM.”
But obviously BAINIMARAMA HAS NO CONFIDENCE IN HIS OWN FIJI HOSPITALS if he has to travel to China for treatment.
Despite his proud boasts the truth is that healthcare in Fiji is at breaking point:
SEE FIJI TODAY The lawyer for Fiji’s Labour Party leader is accusing the director of public prosecutions of interfering with the appeal process by speaking publicly about Mahendra Chaudhry’s case.
Christopher Pryde spoke to a Fiji-New Zealand Business Council meeting on Saturday, in which he referred to Chaudhry’s case and his reasons for prosecuting.
Chaudhry’s lawyer, Anand Singh, says his client’s leave for an appeal is in the process of being filed and Mr Pryde should not be talking about the case.
“It has been our case all along that there was an input from the regime in the decision-making process to prosecute Mr Chaudhry and I don’t think it is appropriate for Mr Pryde to be going out and trying to justify the prosecution”, says Mahendra Chaudhry’s lawyer, Anand Singh.
Christopher Pryde has told Radio New Zealand International he did not discuss the merits of the case but only the reasons for prosecution, which he says had no outside influence.
Mr Pryde says the case is not before the courts as Chaudhry is yet to obtain leave from the Court of Appeal.
While officiating at the Rotuma Day celebrations, on the Island of Rotuma, Fiji's corrupt and lying dictator, Frank Bainimarama, stated that all parties must tell all Fijians about their policies in a positive manner....all parties except him and his FijiFirst Party!
In his same speech [brain fart] the dictator lies to the Rotuman people saying that he cannot campaign until his party is registered. This is what the dictator is supposed to do BUT he has been doing the opposite! The lying dictator has already been campaigning for over two years, at the expense of Fiji taxpayer's and corrupt businesses. AT the same time bribing people, to vote for him, with sewing machines and brush cutters from china. Using cheap loans, illegally got from China, to build cheap homes for some villages, offer to pay school fees for all children in 2014 only, while keeping a large portion of all the loans for himself and his corrupt family and friends.
The dictator then goes on to say that political parties must campaign on the basis of honesty, sincerity, and love and affection and without any pretensions. What a load of rubbish! Bainimarama and his fijifirst party have NOT been anything close to being honest and/or sincere. The Fiji First party is all about pretence and lying to the people of Fiji. they have been lying to the people in the hope that the peoples lack of education and naivety will blind them into voting for the corrupt fijifirst party. God forbid!
Bainimarama says this culture of malice and deceit which older politicians and political parties are engaging in must change. BUT it is he Bainimarama who is lying and being deceitful, becuase it is he who:
The dictator says if Fiji is to progress as a nation, all Fijians must embrace leaders who are sincere and truly care for everyone irrespective of their ethnicity, religion, socio-economic background or gender. This is so true AND IT IS NOT Frank Bainimarama!
Dr Esther Williams and Ashwin Raj provide even more proof that FIJI has NO academic freedom and NO freedom of speech under Frank Bainimarama's dictatorship!
Fijileaks reports that the University of the South Pacific has issued an ultimatum to Patrick Craddock of the USP Journalism program to sign a statement that would effectively silence him from talking to the media.
Craddock alleges that Dr. Williams is frightened of upsetting the military government of Prime Minister Bainimarama. He quotes Dr. Williams saying during their only meeting
“All of us understand that we don’t live in a normal democratic government situation.”
“…whatever we put out in the news media we are very careful..”
Dr Williams's situation is not unique. It highlights a general sentiment across Fiji where most people are afraid of upsetting the criminal dictator bainimarama so they will do any say anything to appease him. if they dont appear to support the criminal dictator then they risk receiving a beating or some form of vengeance. So to survive the people lie to Bainimarama by telling him how wonderful he is and how much they love and support his corrupt leadership. MEanwhile, the people wait for the promised 2014 elections to show who they really support and want as their leader - and it is NOT Bainimarama and khaiyum.
