This is a Shazzer and Grubby Production showing the 100 facial expressions made by FAG (Fiji's Attorney General) when he is lying.
Talking of Lies, Shazzer points to FAG's need for trashing the Prof Ghai Constitution. At the time FAG said it was so cumbersome it would take months to re-write the draft which would delay the elections in September 2014. FAG needed to have a constitution in April 2013 if the junta were to meet their timetable.
As quoted in Graham Davis' web site Grubby Sheets, Davis states that:
“(a) Proceed with the Ghai blueprint and send it to the Constituent Assembly as per the original plan. The problem with this was that the Government feared many months of intense argument over its provisions, a delay to the proclamation of the final document, a delay to the start of the political phase of the election countdown and perhaps even a delay to the election itself, taking it beyond 2014.”
And Davis goes into even more detail:
Confused, I will try to leave you less confused. Senior Government people have told me they were concerned that because the Ghai Draft was so complicated, it might take up to eight months to debate some of its provisions, assuming that the Constituent Assembly is made up – as promised – of people across the political spectrum. This would have pushed the constitutional/ election timetable back until August. Then the political phase would have begun far too late to guarantee that an election could be held before September 2014. Remember,everyone would have been starting from scratch – parties, candidates, election arrangements and a formal campaign.
The Prime Minister is determined to deliver on his promise of a democratic election before September 2014. Can you imagine how the international community would react if he didn’t? Already lots of people are saying there isn’t enough time as it is. The Government assumed that the Ghai Commission would come up with a reasonably compact constitution that could be considered by the people’s representatives quickly. When that didn’t happen, it made the case for overturning some of the Draft Constitution’s provisions even more attractive. Hope this goes some way to addressing your confusion.
Now here we are in July 2013, another 4 months on, and there is still no sign of the constitution. And Shazzer states that the PS Minfo knows that Bainimarama has been too busy with his holidays to even look at the draft constitution. Since April this year Bainimarama has been to France 2x, USA, New Caledonia, PNG, China 2x, Russia, Middle East, etc.
Shazzer also says that Bainimarama earns more on his Per Diems (an additional daily allowance he is paid for expenses) in a month than the PS Minfo earns in a year in salary. However, Shazzer also says that the PS Minfo is also able to supplement her income by having product placements in the Ministry of Miss Information Pictures and Videos, which Toyota has been paying the PS well for, and she also needs to renegotiate her corrupt deal with Fiji Water.
