From Shazzer & Grubby - We’ve all heard the expression rats leaving a sinking SHIP.
But what about Judges leaving a sinking dictatorSHIP
This month has seen 3 of the most senior judges in Fiji all jumping ship.
Gates, the Chief Justice, has tendered his resignation, sold his properties in Fiji for millions and will be leaving for a life spilt between New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
Gates famously once said “The Constitution's very indestructibility is part of its strength. It is not possible for any man to tear up the Constitution. He has no authority to do so....”
Who would have thought that same judge, would preside over the destruction of the very constitution he said was indestructible.
Gates has been integral to Khaiyum's plans to remove enemies through the courts. He has delayed cases, he has hurried cases, he has interfered with cases, he has selected judges on their ability to give the verdict Khaiyum ordered. He even advised Bainiarama on how to engineer the early release of Killer Kean from his sentence for manslaughter.
Madam Shameem as she likes to be called or HRH as many of her colleagues loathingly refer to her, has committed treason. She advised Bainimarama on the legalities of the coup and the doctrine of necessity before December 2006. She presided over the Judicial Services Commission meeting which installed Gates as the new chief Justice.
But she did not want to publicly commit treason by becoming a judge and swearing an illegal oath to the President after the abrogation of the Constitution in 2009. Instead she got paid hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars for being the legal consultant of choice for the Regime. She was the Cheerleader for Khaiyum’s decrees. He would write a decree and she would be sent out to Govt. departments companies etc to advise them on the legalities. At the same time she would gloss over the human rights abuses at the heart of these illegal decrees.
But here she is on her way to Geneva to push Fiji’s case for Human Rights.
HRH you are SCUM.
Then we come to Madigan. He was infamous for getting drunk and chasing after Barrow Boys in Lautoka. That’s a judge we can do without in Fiji and good riddance.
But he has been most famous for doing Khaiyum’s dirty work in the courts. If Khaiyum wanted a guilty verdict he would ask the CJ, Gates, to appoint Madigan as the presiding judge.
Who will ever forget the Driti trial? The 3 Assessors unanimously said NOT GUILTY. Only for Madigan to overrule and issue a guilty verdict.
The judiciary in Fiji will be all the better for the departure of these 3 judges.
Frank be warned. When the people best placed to know they are facing a long prison sentence are leaving your side you better take notice.
YOU WILL BE TRIED AND FOUND GUILTY AND SENT TO NABORO TO BE GEORGE SPEIGHTS LITTLE BITCH
