The Council for a Democratic Fiji released a statement saying that the lying dictator bainimarama appeared on TV last night in another attempt to "con" the US Government by announcing that there would be an immediate review of his junta's draconian labour decrees that contravene 34 International Labour Organisation conventions that Fiji has ratified.
All this drama and spin, just 24 hours before the hearing commences in the United States against Fiji for breach of labour rights and standards arising out of the rogue decrees of Khaiyum - Bainimarama's insalubrious Attorney General. The decrees threaten Fiji with the most serious employment crisis ever, that involves 39 companies losing 15,000 – 36,000 jobs.
But what's the use of talking about a review especially when we all know that bainimarma is a born and bred liar. What is key is that there are appropriate changes implemented to meet the (34) international standards. Remember these are just Bainimarama's words and, like before it only implies carrying out a review of the decrees but it does not include making any changes to them.
Bainimarama has a record of broken promises and more of his "bullshit" that include:
vowing to preserve the 1997 constitution and then trashing the Constitution
breaking a personal commitment to the Pacific Forum leaders to hold Elections in March 2009
promising to be accountable and yet refuses to release the Auditor General’s report
publicly stating that as interim Prime Minister he will only collect his Commander’s salary, but secretly receives multiple salaries
reduce corruption but is privately paid through Nur Bano’s Accounting firm in Suva and refuses to disclose the details to the taxpayers of Fiji
vowing to increase transparency but he is no way transparent.
So should the US government trust this latest "drama queen" performance by bainimarma. Hell No!
Bainimarama is a dictator and together with Khaiyum they have been doing everything they can to avoid scrutiny of on-going abuse of labor rights, human rights and the other fundamental rights of Fiji Citizens. Bainimarama is also a fugitive from the law!
Therefore, all decrees identified by the ILO and the ICFTU must immediately be rescinded.
