The State Run newspaper, Fiji Sun, with its less than 10% market share, shows contempt for fallen soldier, Warrant Officer Class I, Wili Thomas.
MAY 2000 - Bainimarama's Coup
In the months leading up to the coup Bainimarama received regular military briefings of an impending coup. He was fully aware of the threat to Government. He had also built up intelligence on the impending coup through a military intelligence unit. In addition, soldiers from a specialist unit called the Counter Revolutionary Warfare Unit (CRW), which had been created by Government, and members of the Third Fiji Infantry Battalion (3FIR), were gathering information on the coup and informing Bainimarama.
The sad fate of the CRW soldiers, who were either murdered by or incarcerated or otherwise silenced by Bainimarama, is also outlined in this document, Fiji's dictator revealed.
Despite all the information that Bainimarama had received regarding an impending coup,
Bainimarama arranged to attend a conference in Norway in May 2000. This was a United Nations conference on Peacekeeping (the irony of the subject matter of this conference will rapidly become apparent).
Before he was due to leave for the conference, Bainimarama was informed by the Commanding Officer 3FIR, Lt Colonel Viliame Seruvakula, that the coup would be held on 19th May 2000. This warning was given one week before the coup. Bainimarama's response to this warning clearly shows his guilt in the matter of the coup. He said: "OK set you know what to do I have to attend this meeting it is very important for the RFMF."
Bainimarama clearly planned to be out of the country when the coup occurred so that he could avoid blame for it.
Clearly, Bainimarama knew all about the impending coup but took no step to stop it. He was prepared to stand aside and let it happen. This failing was especially serious because as Commander he had the power to stop it. He was therefore a crucial participant in the coup. His guilt was as great, and in fact greater than that of any of those who carried out the destruction and violence that accompanied the coup.
Despite the Commander in Chief and President Ratu Sir KKT Mara questioning the wisdom of Bainimarama leaving the country at an unsettled time, Bainimarama insisted that it was alright for him to go. The President yielded to Bainimarama’s view.
Bainimarama departed for Norway on May 12th with full knowledge that the coup would occur on May 19th 2000. Because he had planned for and ordered his CRW soldiers to enter Parliament with George Speight and overthrow the Government!
Fiji's Parliamentary Circus continues with the STUPID Speaker, Luveni, who promoted herself to the title of "Doctor" after completing a Diploma in Dentistry, speaks without thinking! Yet again!
The stupid fool made certain statements while speaking on the issue of violence against women and children to teachers at Rishikul Sanatan College during their weekly "professional development" talks - obviously not very professional. But later, when she saw what she had said published in the newspapers, she claims that the newspaper had misinterpreted her comments and disregarded other issues she spoke about at the event in Nasinu. Oh really? What a load of rubbish!
The stupid fool goes on to say that she cannot apologise for what she already said but she said it in good faith. Wow!!
Luveni then says there were "no negative comments at the end of the presentation because it was given in the context of the situation. My genuine wish is to protect women.” This clearly suggests, given her statement, that Luveni says what she doesn't mean. It also suggests that Luveni is unable to explain herself intellectually, or to string her thoughts together in simple English. Click HERE to read more at Fiji Leaks
The megalomaniac and corrupt Khaiyum's House of Lies, was caught out again WITH MORE LIES! His stupid FijiFirst Government Whip, who is now Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, Ashneel Sudhakar, revealed, yet again, why he is so NOT qualified for the roles.

What is the point of a Code of Conduct workshop for parliamentarians operating under a corrupt dictatorship? What?
Will holding the workshop somehow convince the corrupt dictators to suddenly see sense, risking their freedoms and ill gotten loot, and apply what has been taught in the workshop? Highly unlikely. Maybe its because it was facilitated by former Australian MP John Hyde, who had previously worked with the parliamentarians at the Regional UN Pacific Anti-Corruption Project and GOPAC workshop as well as workshops on population and development priorities. Maybe this will compel the dictators to change? Yeah right!
Only an arrogant and overpaid bureaucrat with no sincere intentions would think that such a workshop is worthwhile in a corrupt dictatorship! But you can better your bottom dollar that the presenters had a wonderful, all expense paid, holiday.
Maybe it was the presentations by Keyan MP Shakeel Shabbir Ahmed, who also chairs the Global Organisation of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC’s) regional African Network and Kinley Tenzin, the head of the Legislative and Procedural Division of the National Council Secretariat from the National Council, the Upper House of Bhutan’s Parliament, might just do the trick?
Having a code of conduct is not the point. What matters is the ability to apply the code of conduct in a transparent and fair manner that is subject to the rule of law!
Power went straight to the head of Khaiyum's puppet chamcha, ASHNEEL SUDHAKAR. The idiot could not contain himself after he was voted in as Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission, stating that all civil service jobs would be re-advertised. This caused an undercurrent with existing civil servants that could lead to mass protest by the 30,000 civil servants and turn into a tsunami on the dictatorship. It could unseat the dictator.
Now khaiyum is telling [threatening] the FijiTimes to provide evidence that the idiot Sudhakar had actually opened is "qara ni tati" and said those words. This is a threat by khaiyum! The appointment of Sudhakar is just another prime example of brainless, arrogant twit being appointed to a position far beyond his station!
The Island of Rotuma is the beautiful home to the unique indigenous Polynesian Rotuman people. Each year, it commemorates the anniversary of Rotuma's cession to the United Kingdom on May 13, 1881. Rotuma remained with Fiji after Fiji gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1970.
The first Europeans to visit Rotuma were the crew of HMS Pandora under the leadership of Captain Edwards in the late 18th century. Rotuma became home to many runaway sailors throughout the 19th century. In the mid-19th century, two groups of missionaries arrived on the island. Rivalry between the two groups, fueled by conflicts among local chiefs, forced the chiefs to ask the United Kingom to annex Rotuma and its neighboring islets. The anniversary of the cession is observed annually by Rotumans, the world over, as Rotuma Day.
Fiji's current President, Major General [Retired] Jioji Knorote, a Rotuman, was nominated by the Fiji dictator and easily won the vote in the dictator's rigged parliament. However, a number of proud Rotuman's claim that he is the president-elect, obviously ignoring the true sense of the word when a free and fair election is conducted under a truly Democratic system, which Fiji is not.
But a surprising number of Rotuman bloggers have raised disgust at Konrote's racism towards Indo-Fijians after the 1987 coup. Then there is Konrote's party hopping to whomever was leading, supporting the so-called Speight coup in 2000, then jumping across to the wining SDL party. Next he joins SODELPA party, before jumping over to the dictator's FijiFirst party.
Konrote, according to an elderly Rotuman, is a Political Prostitute! But worse still is his attitude towards fellow Rotumans, "not all are equal under Konrote. He only shows up or offers support, all token and fake, when it benefits him or his family. So sad!"
An example provided is a group of Rotumans who had traveled three days by boat from the Island of Rotuma to meet with Konrote in Suva. They went to ask Konrote, as he was the President and also a fellow Rotuman, to help them join the Work Scheme going to work in Australia. Konrote refused! Telling them to go back to the island because the scheme was only for Fijians!" Wow, but isnt everyone a Fijian in Bainimarama's Fiji or is this another lie?.
"And now, in the newspaper", according to the elderly Rotuman man, "he is taking photos while giving groceries to a widow. Good on the widow, but Konrote is displaying that nasty self-serving trait, that low-down humans seem to be born with. You only see them when he needs something from you. And he talks so sweetly. There is good and bad in every race my boy, but this chap [Konrote] is a fu#&ing snake in the grass!"
Clci Opposition MP, who is also the NFP Leader, Hon. Biman Prasad was voted out as Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). Hon. Prasad has been replaced by the corrupt Government Whip the Horrible Ashneel Sudhakar who was voted in by the Dictator's stooges Mohammed Dean and Alexander O’Connor [Bainimarama's close relative]. Mohammed Dean was voted in as the new Deputy Chair, meanwhile Aseri Radrodro did not vote.
Hon. Prasad said he was not surprised about his removal as chairperson because corrupt Fiji First MPs were unhappy at comments he had made concerning the series of recently released auditor general's reports that shows the extent of Bainimarama's Fiji First government corruption and mismanagement. He also said that PAC is the only one that under parliamentary standing orders is chaired by an opposition MP. This provides checks and balances to the public, but it has now been destroyed thanks to the corruption of Bainimarama.
This now means that the Baini-Khaiyum dictatorship can continue to abuse public funds in any fashion, whenever and however they want and there is no one to criticize their corruption publicly.
The key point is that by replacing the Opposition MP, Dr Prasad, with a FijiFirst Party MP and stooge of Bainimarama and Khaiyum, the following key questions will be shelved and not get answered:
Australia has agreed that future development assistance to Fiji should be targeted to complement the Fiji dictatorship’s policy agenda and priorities. Oh really!!
Click HERE to read how the Australian Minister for International Development and the Pacific, Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, agreed that any Australian development assistance to Fiji needed to take into account the Government priorities and complement them, rather than operate in isolation. Targeted assistance programs are to be included in a new aid agreement between Fiji and Australia that is currently being considered.
Basically, this suggests that Australia will play along with the dictatorships's corruption, lies and human rights violations by continuing to look the other way!
The heavily biased and ass-kissing Nemani Delaibatiki, of the corrupt FijiSun newspaper, claims many people sang praises to the Bainimarama Government for the Help for Homes programme. The praise has come from all over the country.
Amid the hype and excitement is a reminder from Fiji’s corrupt and lying dictator Voreqe Bainimarama about giving of false information to access funding. Oh Really! What a load of crap! Just like Bainimarama’s false reasons for overthrowing the democratically elected Qarase government, or Bainimarama’s false back-pay of $220,000 for annual leave he had already used, or Bainimarama’s false claims that no military person would benefit from his coup, or Bainimarama’s false promises and Bainimarama’s false claims that no one in his interim govt would stand in the elections and what about Bainimarama's false claims that Native ‘Fijian land is safe!!
And what about Bainimarama’s false claim of providing money for housing when it has all been donated by other countries and bussiness and people living abroad! Where is the Fiji Govt's aid?
People who plan to illegally access funds when they are not eligible are likely to be found out.Wow!! The Government has done everything it can to ensure that people who genuinely require financial assistance get it. Bullshit! There is not enough donated funds to cover the $7,000 per home for all those who nee it. Simple maths shows the minimum figure needed is over $80 million. People need to know that it does not pay to give false information. Oh really? Bainimarama has become a multi-millionaire by giving false information! Bainimarama is depriving those who genuinely need financial assistance.
It had been envisaged that some people would still try to access funding illegally. But Bainimarama and khaiyum are doing it everyday! Yes it is such a sad indictment of our moral standards in a culture of dishonesty set by Bainimarama's treason, lies, coup, land theft and native cultural genocide. Especially when the dictator Bainimarama is the worst culprit at lying, treason, murder, theft and false information.
Many who joined the long queues around the country at registration centres yesterday, says the Fiji Sun ass-kisser, are genuine people needing the money badly to repair or rebuild their homes. Yes because the government is using the people's money to fund Bainimarama’s ILLEGAL overseas trips, house buying for his piglets and bank accounts.
Adopt a Village
First, says the Fiji Sun ass-kisser, we had Adopt a School. Now it’s Adopt a Village. It’s a simple and brilliant concept that has taken a life of its own. Two villages, one in Ovalau and one in Ra, will be the first beneficiaries of the Adopt a Village scheme paid for by other people when its supposed to be government’s responsibility. So where is all the money that is being borrowed for cyclone winston - and where are the audited accounts???
The dictator, says the Fiji Sun ass-kisser, Voreqe Bainimarama must be commended for leading from the front in ideas and action to make money for himself and his piglets. The adoption idea came from an informal discussion with close and corrupt friends who are all robbing Fiji of its resources. He was also impressed with the work of a US group of Fijians who came to rebuild a temple and other homes in the area so that he, Bainimarama, can now keep the money borrowed on behalf of the people, all for himself and his piglets.
Yesterday, says the Fiji Sun ass-kisser, he was personally helping the elderly and women who needed help at the Brown Street registration centre in Suva for the Help for Homes programme. No wonder the people were singing his praise yesterday.

Fiji's corrupt dictator, Frank Bainimarama, opened the 2016 Fijian Tourism Expo at the Sheraton Fiji Resort, Denarau Island. He stated that TOURISTS feel an emotional connection to our people and this experience sets Fiji apart from other holiday destinations.
He said it was through these connections that Fiji continued to enjoy one of the highest returnee tourist numbers in the world. "A connection that often becomes an attachment and sees thousands of international visitors repeatedly coming back for more," he said.
This suggests that international visitors don't care if Fiji is Oppressed or has no freedom of speech, no rule of law, no free press and no human rights, so long as they [the visitors] can get good cheap holidays. Really?...... So it would seem, if tourists could be measured by the recent growth in visitor arrivals [if the figures are correct] despite the setbacks caused by Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston, the recent floods and the high crime rate. And yet the oppressed people of Fiji and the opposition leaders continue to overlook their own strength and resources, and wait in false hope for someone else to do the hard work for them!....and pigs might fly!.

Another slap to the face of Khaiyum, Luveni and Bainimarama!
International Parliamentary Union (IPU)Council Decision exposes rogue Speaker of Fiji Parliament who is under Khaiyum's CONTROL.
IPU rules in favour of SODELPA President re suspension from Parliament while Fijian Court under CJ Gates still sitting on the application filed by RNL some 10 months ago.
The Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu Suspension: Inter-Parliamentary Union Governing Council meeting in Zambia rules two year suspension over remark made outside Parliament inappropriate and Council hopes suspension will be lifted.
The IPU Council also ruled that in the absence of a clearly legal basis for the two-year suspension, it was wholly disproportionate, as it not only deprives Naiqama of his right to exercise his parliamentary mandate, but also deprives his electorate from representation in parliament for a period covering half the term of parliament:
1. "Considering, finally, that the complainants affirm that the exaggerated suspension imposed on Mr. Lalabalavu is the culmination of a long-running effort to silence indigenous voices in parliament and to leave it to the non-indigenous minority to run the country, which allegation the authorities fully deny"
2. Unequivocally denounces gender slander; and recognizes that Mr. Lalabalavu may have used words that were offensive and degrading and therefore totally unacceptable;
3. Considers nevertheless that the decision by parliament to suspend him for two years for remarks made outside of parliament at a local party meeting is both inappropriate, also in the absence of a clearly legal basis for the two-year suspension, and wholly disproportionate, as it not only deprives him of his right to exercise his parliamentary mandate, but also deprives his electorate from representation in parliament for a period covering half the term of parliament; considers also in this regard that alternative, regular legal avenues could have been pursued instead to obtain redress for the slander or libel in the case at hand;
4. Sincerely hopes therefore, all the more so given that Mr. Lalabalavu has already been excluded from parliament for 10 months, that his suspension will soon be lifted, either through a new decision by parliament, or as a result of the outcome of the pending constitutional challenge; eagerly awaits to receive feedback on this prospect.
ACP Tudravu says he will undertake a PhD to identify reasons for the Soaring Crime Rate in Fiji, under Bainimarama's dictatorship!
FIJI'S CRIMINAL, CORRUPT AND ARROGANT PM, Frank Bainimarama, rejected a holiday bid to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of Indenture System in Fiji.
The idiot claimed it was a "political stunt" and went on to say that the descendants of indentured labourers were protected under the 2013 Constitution!
