fijivillage reports Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen saying that the airline company is not insolvent by any definition of the word, whether you look at the company’s cash flow or their balance sheet.
Fiji's corrupt and failed minister for everything Sayed-Khaiyum has appointed Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen as the chairman of the Board of directors of the Fiji Development Bank [FDB].
Andre Viljoen has become both borrower and lender! As Chairman, he can override the directors and push through more loan approvals for the airlines.
Fiji Airways [FA] has been facing difficult times then COVID-19 arrived. Some suggest that it is now insolvent and on the verge of bankruptcy. It borrowed $75million from the Reserve Bank of Fiji via the FDB [who will earn a 3% clear profit without doing any work!]. This is in addition to the $200 million FA has borrowed from the FNPF and it is also in addition to the broke Fiji government-guaranteed loan of $455m. This is a total of $730 million! It's to help the airline survive and meet its monthly repayments for its leased aircraft.
What's interesting is that other struggling airlines have been able to return their leased aircraft, so why not Fiji Airways! Viljoen says that their lease agreement cannot be cancelled!
He claims that the signed agreements are binding between the airline, leasing companies and the financial institutions “like a noose the airline cannot wriggle out of”. Wow!
So what fool approved this agreement! It reeks of incompetence and corruption! This is certainly a disqualification for any Chairmanship role, especially for a bank!

Ex-minister speaks out
Former FijiFirst parliamentarian and party whip Ashneel Sudhakar claims the government side of the house is always under instructions to “make noise and disturb” National Federation Party (NFP) leader Prof Biman Prasad whenever he stood up to speak in Parliament.
Mr Sudhakar revealed this while attending a NFP meeting in Ba on Thursday, claiming the instructions came from party general secretary and Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
He claimed NFP president Pio Tikoduadua and he were examples of individuals forced out of the party.
“As long as you say yes, you are there. As soon as you start asking questions, you are out.
Former Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources Ashneel Sudhakar claims he resisted instructions to convert cane farm leases to tourism leases because he wanted to save the sugar industry.
This is the first time the former minister has spoken publicly after he was removed as a Cabinet minister and as a FijiFirst member of Parliament in March this year.
“I was given direct instructions to convert the cane farms to tourism,” he said.
“I saved the cane farms. I was telling the professor (Biman Prasad) I was given instructions to change the cane farms, I said no.”
Mr Sudhakar said: “If we close the cane farms, nobody will survive. Look at what has happened to tourism. Planes are there, hotels are closed.
“For the past five months Fiji is being run by the sugar industry. It is the only export.”
He said if the sugar industry were to collapse, “the whole of Labasa, from Rakiraki to Sigatoka will die”.
The Ba-based lawyer also supported a call by the NFP leader Prof Biman Prasad to investigate how Fiji Sugar Corporation had been using government guaranteed loans.
“We must investigate FSC. We must review FSC. Money has been poured in, where is the money going.
“$400 million government guaranteed loan, millions of dollars spent on the mills. Where is the hundreds and millions of dollars going.”
Fiji's most corrupt and least educated Prime Minister violent Voreqe Bainimarama says he will not live forever so his new $7 million office complex would also benefit his successors.
Meanwhile, Fiji is in the midst of a global pandemic with:
Yet violent Voreqe seems more concerned about having money for his new office! $7million!! This would go a long way to helping the people NOW, through much-needed supplies to community groups that are delivering relief packages to families in need!!
Violent Voreqe Bainimarama told villagers at a talanoa session [see FijiTimes] in Nayavu, Wainibuka that a lot has been said about the $7 million budget allocation for the new office complex. He's obviously too stupid to realise the significance of the comments!
Responding to concerns about the decrease in assistance for senior citizens supported under the social welfare scheme, he said even though the assistance had been decreased for some recipients, it would continue and Government would not terminate the allocation completely. Wow! This suggests that recipients should be thankful that they are getting anything at all from the broke government. Many complaining that they now receive $10 instead of $40. But according to Bainimarama they should not have to worry because the $10 would continue!
All this crap because Bainimarama has mismanaged the economy and robbed Fiji of its resources for over 14 years!
Bainimarama also said budget sceptics failed to consider the importance of boosting the business sector to nurture the country’s economy and create revenue generation. But many of the customers of those businesses are now unemployed and broke! So how does he expect them to purchase any goods and services! This means he is basically giving money to sustain his corrupt family and friends under the guise of nurturing the economy!
Covid-19 continues to expose Sayed-Khaiyum and Frank Bainimarama. Especially how they manipulated Fiji's GDP data and tax revenue to mask their corruption and mismanagement of the economy that has made them multi-millionaires. Their lying knows no bounds including the health and safety of others.
They lied about the COVID-19 situation in Fiji in the hope that New Zealand and Australia would allow them to join their Trans-Tasman travel bubble! Both these countries are more concerned for the health and safety of their people, they refused! They know better!
So Khaiyum created his own Bula Bubble around the same lies, while threatening anyone in Fiji who dares to reveal the truth! A mobile tracing App has also been introduced but so far only 50,000 people have downloaded the careFiji app complained Khaiyum! What a "Madua" [shameful] situation said Khaiyum. On really!
Now he is forcing people to download the app [which some fear can also be used to spy on people's communications] or be refused certain government assistance or air travel. But not everyone in Fiji has a smart-phone capable of downloading the app.
Veteran journalist Michael Field posted on Facebook that Fiji has Covid-19 swab tested just 0.7% of its population! So why, asks Field, would anyone want to share a bubble with a corrupt military regime that doesn't really test at all? And lies about it!
FBC News reports that Ratu Inoke Kubuabola who was a key player behind Fiji's coups has been nominated by Fiji's latest coup leader and dictator Frank Bainimarama as Fiji’s candidate for Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Forum.
Fiji's least educated and most corrupt Prime Minister Frank Voreqe Bainimarama said that the decision had been undertaken after careful consideration of the complex regional environment and the need for strong and decisive leadership at the Pacific Island Forum.
In other words Bainimarama wants a conniving person like Kubuabola whom he can control to get the forum to bend to do his bidding!
Kubuabola's record is best summarised by Michael Field in his Facebook post [7/8/2020], duplicated here.
"Astonishing.... Fiji has nominated one of its most conniving, dangerous politicians as the next Secretary General of the Pacific Forum. Inoke Kubuabola, 72, should, by rights, be in jail with his mates George Speight and Jo Nata, serving life for treason. Instead, another mate got him away from facing charges. That of course was Voreqe Bainimarama.
He has long claimed to have invented the taukei movement and in earlier years was strongly of the belief that Indians should be driven out of Fiji.
He played a helpful, nursemaid role with Sitiveni Rabuka's two coups. It was the 2000 coup that overthrew Mahendra Chaudhry he played his strongest role. He was opposition leader sitting in parliament when Speight and the thugs invaded parliament, taking hostages. While the government was being held for long weeks, Kubuabola was advising Speight on how to make his regime legitimate before the world. No one was, of course, fooled. He has never explained his role with Speight and what he was really doing. He knew that Speight was coming to seize parliament, he knew who was behind it all.
At the treason trial for Jo Nata and Timoci Silatolu, prosecutor Peter Ridgway told the court that Kubuabola should have been on trial for treason too as he had told Speight on how to advise the United Nations on the "new reality of the regime".
Of course he was not charged: Bainimarama had Fiji under military rule and Kubuabola, a master at reading shifting sands, had joined up.
Just as killer Francis Kean was protected, and made head of Fiji Rugby, Bainimarama got Kubuabola into his camp... and made him foreign minister.
In that role of course, Fiji abused the Pacific Forum and claimed it was part of Australia and New Zealand foreign policy. It was Kubuabola who ran the anti Forum, anti NZ & Australia line.
Now he wants to run the Pacific Forum - one can only hope Pacific leaders and their advisers know their history."
FBC News reports that 10,000 Social Welfare recipients will now have their allowances suspended for the next three months because they had failed to complete new forms ordered by Social Welfare under their re-certification programme. Wow!
Director of Social Welfare Rupeni Fatiaki said “Those that are not re-certified, we are going to suspend their allowances, until they bring their forms and bring it back to us. Those that have filled their forms, there is no need to worry because they will continue to be paid, it’s only for those that are not re-certified.”
Clearly Social Welfare sees itself as the master in this case choosing to punish recipients for not complying! Wow!
It seems Rupeni Fatiaki forgot that he runs a Social Welfare programme and needs to get off his high horse and reacquaint himself with some organisation goals that include:
Punishing 10,000 people during Fiji's period of the highest unemployment and COVID-19 pandemic with a high cost of living is plain stupidity and poor customer service! Social Welfare should have made it its business to contact each person by mail, radio, media and community announcements!
Director Rupeni Fatiaki's actions also means that Social Welfare has:
In fact Rupeni Fatiaki has deliberately forced 10,000 poor recipients into poverty and hardship for 3 months because of his bureaucratic policies and arrogance! It seems that Bainimarama and Khaiyum's nasty traits have rubbed off on Rupeni Faitaki!
Or maybe its just another facade to hide the fact that the Bainimarama government is broke and won't have the required funds available for another three months!
Frank Voreqe Bainimarama - Fiji's clueless Acting PM [because he isn't the real PM] couldn't explain VAT or GDP during live TV interviews but now uses Smart Borrowing to explain his government's mismanagement, incompetence and greedy "koco" grab at loans beyond Fiji's ability to repay!
Here's a snapshot of the results from Bainimarama's so-called SMART BORROWING:
It appears that Fiji's megalomaniac and corrupt AG Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has reaffirmed his membership in the FijiFirst Cowards' Club! He joins dictator Frank JV Bainimarama and son Meli Bainimarama and Rohit Ritesh Sharma who assaulted their defenseless wives!
Sources say that the complaint against Sayed-Khaiyum was lodged with the Police, Case number 627/7/2020, and that his wife and children have moved out to an apartment.
But so far the Police have done nothing about it! No questioning! No charges! No arrest! Just Useless!
Meanwhile, the corrupt and least educated Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho was farewelled by the British High Commission. He departed for England to attend a course at the Royal College of Defence Studies, as if it will fix "stupid"!
What's also unbelievable is the silence from the media, Shamima Ali Coordinator of the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre and the "gnomic" Human Rights Director Ashwin Raj!
New China reported March 2019 that PM Voreqe Bainimarama had spoken out against domestic violence, calling men who hit their wives or daughters "cowards". In November of the same year FBC News reported the dictator Frank Bainimarama again stating that "Men who abuse women are cowards".
Yes, Bainimarama is a hypocrite!
He also beat and raped unarmed and defenseless women at the QEB military camp in December 2006, killing an unborn baby in the process by repeatedly jumping up and down on the back of the pregnant mother who had been forced to lay down on her tummy!!
Frank Bainimarama also stated that:
Yes we agree Frank Bainimarama! We agree that you, your son Meli, Rohit Sharma and AG Sayed-Khaiyum are all COWARDS and WEAK!
Clearly, there is No Rule of Law and that some people are "More Equal than Others" in Bainimarama's corrupt Fiji!
NFP Party President Pio Tikoduadua provided evidence in Parliament of how Fiji's GDP figures had been deliberately manipulated by the corrupt and lying AG Sayed-Khaiyum to make the FijiFirst Government appear economically stronger than what it really was.
A copy of the email evidence provided by Tikoduadua is replicated below. It's from AG Sayed-Khaiyum to Frank Bainimarama, dated 15 December 2020, outlining how Fiji's GDP figures were falsified.
This proves that:
Remember, that there was also proof of the budget being ballooned by Khaiyum to hide the huge amount of debt Fiji is in. This was also in the form of an email from the CEO of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Department. This email proves how Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum has been instructing the revenue department to play around with figures to show fake money, low debt and hide the crash in the economy.
