Please don't forget to discuss what you see and read on this, and other similar blog sites, with as many people as possible. Especially with your friends and relatives living in rural and remote areas and communities. REMEMBER that “Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. [Robert A. Heinlein]. And this is exactly what Bainimarama and khaiyum have forced onto the people of Fiji with its illegal decrees censoring our media and right to free speech and association.
Robert A. Heinlein goes on to say that, "When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not know, the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives”. Which is what Bainimarama's dictatorship is doing to Fiji.
Khaiyum reportedly in hospital
FiJILEAKS was passed the following: AG became very sick while on campaign trip which included Ba, Tavua and Ra. He was not present at Ra meeting on Tuesday. After Ba and Tavua meet, he became very sick and stayed back for two days at a Rakiraki resort. On Tuesday afternoon he was transported to Suva and around 11 pm admitted to Suva Private Hospital. Still admitted at Suva Private intensive care unit.
Whay are the RATS running and jumping ship? Do they see the writing on the wall with Fiji's looming 2014 elections that has been blatantly rigged in favour of the dictator Bainimarama and his corrupt FijiFirst party? ......Why else would they give up their highly lucrative salaries, lavish life-styles and perks with the corrupt, lying dictator Bainimarama and his vile megalomaniac puppet master Khaiyum.
Do they actually believe that if they run now that all will be well for them? Yeah right! They have committed high treason and no matter where they run to, or how long it takes, they will all be made to answer to the people of Fiji.
Bainimarama's mistress, judge Nashat Shameem, who has been paid millions for her part in supporting and advising Khaiyum and Bainimarama, has run to Geneva. Her husband, Aslam Khan, the corrupt former vodafone CEO, reported to be paid over $500,00 per year, has resigned and run to join his wife in Geneva.
Both Judge Gates and Judge Madigan, have sold up their properties and done a runner. A positive side, though, to Gates and Madigan's departure is that our poor street children will be much safer.
Now the arrogant, johnny-come-lately, PS Elizabeth Powell has resigned. Remember she is the same Eco-Bank reject who became PS public enterprise, tourism, etc (that have all gone down hill since she took over) that started to preach "off-the cuff" management philosophy to the more educated and seasoned managers. Yep, this is the same "self-appointed expert" who, at a board of Director's meeting, asked, "how important is the budget?". We rest our case! Click here to see FBC story.
Others are also running but keeping their escape as quiet as possible.
Whatever, their reasons for running now, they will all be hunted down and brought back to answer for their crimes. They can run BUT they will never be able to hide!
If someone points a gun at your head and makes you sign away your rights that contract would not be binding. In fact any court would throw it out and put the man holding the gun behind bars.
Well that is what happened in Fiji with the 2013 CONSTITUTION, BUT the man holding the gun is NOT behind bars! He, bainimarama, is running from the law for murder, treason, corruption and abuse of office! Click here to read more by Shazzer & Grubby.
See FijiLeaks' story at MAI LIES: Waqavonovono refutes Bainimarama's MAI LIFE interview!
A vote for FijiFirst is a vote for Khaiyum. Shazzer & Grubby explains.
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!
