As we have said before Frank Bainimarama manipulated the RFMF to overthrow the legal and last democratically elected government in 2006 to stop the police from arresting and imprisoning him for murder and treason. Now Bainimarama will stop at nothing to ensure he remains in power, out of prison and making lots of money through his corrupt practices and crooked deals.
Bainimarama, as advised by his devious and satanic puppeteer Khaiyum, had been hoping that the people of Fiji and the world would just roll over, accept his lies while he and khaiyum cunningly replaced Prof Yash Ghai’s draft Fiji constitution with their Khaiyum Constitution. Fiji and the world would then be fooled into thinking that the khaiyum constitution was indeed the Prof Ghai Constitution Commission’s draft. Bainimarama’s hand picked members of the Constituent Assembly would then recommend the khaiyum constitution and no one would be the wiser or so they thought.
Contrary to popular belief Pro Ghai was actually out to draft a proper Constitution for the people of Fiji based on submissions by the people and best practice principals. The people of Fiji gave over 7,000 submissions to the Constitution Commission, most rejecting the non-negotiable immunity for Bainimarama and those involved in all coups, past and future.
The next step was for a public debate of the draft constitution. But Bainimarama and khaiyum objected to the public debate. They would not be able to cunningly substitute the Prof Gahi constitution with their Khaiyum Constitution. This would not be possible if people knew what was in the Prof Ghai constitution. So Bainimarama and khaiyum rejected the Prof Ghai constitution and turned to threatening Prof Ghai. Australia's un-elected Foreign Minister, Bob Carr, supported this move. Khaiyum even ordered printed copies of the Prof Ghai constitution burnt. But a full copy was published on the internet.
Next Bainimarama orders his illegal and satanic puppeteer to draft another constitution and stated that a Constituent Assembly would debate the document and recommend a final draft to the illegal president. But some political parties wanted to be a part of the constituent assembly and have a say in the final document.
By decree the Constituent Assembly was to sit at the beginning of January 2013, but Bainimarama failed to appoint one.
A week later, khaiyum issues a political parties decree directing political parties to re-register within 28 days of the publication of the Decree. Basically any existing and registered political party would cease to exist, even if they applied for registration under the Decree. The Decree would also affect the membership of the Constituent Assembly, and would disqualify leading politicians from long established parties from participation in the proceedings. The registration of new parties depends entirely on the corrupt illegal government who could then exclude those politicians that khaiyum and Bainimarama did not want in the Constituent Assembly.
There were also ridiculous rules for registration of a party, but a number of existing parties didn’t give up. They reorganized and rebranded themselves to register. The Fijian named SDL party, for one, changed its name to English and retained the same acronym – SDL, which is known to voters. So khaiyum issues an amendment to the decree that prohibits the use of previous party names and acronyms. But this still did not stop the parties from forging on and in line with the new amendments.
Bainimarama and khaiyum will not be able to control the Constituent Assembly if these parties are successful and have members included in the assembly. So Bainimarama and khaiyum decide that there will be no Assembly but instead his draft Constitution
would be released immediately to allow the public to give feedback until April the 5th - but this is not enough time for the people to read, discuss and decide.
Basically, we now have Bainimarama dictating the constitution to Fiji with his immunity provisions included to keep him out of prison and able to commite future coups. But the people don't want immunity given to Bainimarama and his group of evil supporters. They said so in their submissions to the Prof Ghai Constitution Committee. So Bainimarama is stuck and resorting to threatening anyone who questions or doesn't accept his khaiyum version of the constitution that will keep him in power and out of prison - without a true and proper mandate from the people.
