original story on C4.5 . but some have suggested that this treatment of the Naboro prisoner is bainimarama's version of Sharia Law (Arabic: شريعة šarīʿah, it also قانون إسلامي qānūn ʾIslāmī) which is the moral code and religious law of Islam. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics, and economics.
The C4.5 story says - Here it is: the first photograph of the Naboro prisoner who had his leg amputated after taking a beating from RFMF and police when he was recaptured.
Epeli Qaraniqio appeared in court on Wednesday afternoon and has been further remanded in custody.
The pro-regime newspaper, the Fiji Sun, ran the above photo of Qaraniqio on its front page yesterday but did not post the picture or the accompanying court story on its website.
No other Fiji media has covered the story or run the picture.
Fiji police and some citizens have insisted the brutal beatings meted out to Qaraniqio and the other four escapees were justified because they're criminals.
Police have also tried to cover up the abuse of Qaraniqio by claiming his leg was amputated because he has diabetes. Yeah right - if his leg was that bad from diabetes that it needed amputation, then he would not have been able to run, let alone walk! And any sane person can figure this out but the junta thinks the people are stupid - how insluting! This is similar to bainimarama telling the world that he staged the coup to save Fiji - lasulasu!, he actually staged the coup to save himself from going to jail and there is so much evidence against bainimarama.
So it seems the ever promiscuous Sharon Smith-Johns is earning her free booze tonight at the QEB officers mess for this ridiculous explanation and for lying to the poor people of Fiji..
