Fiji Today blog reports that the Fiji police are making progress with their torture video investigation. Do you believe Tudravu.........
When the video surfaced, police said they would investigate, but the dictator Bainimarama
announced that he would stick by his men. The dictator said they could not be discarded just because they did their duty in looking after the security of Fiji and making sure people sleep peacefully at night. Does this statement make you feel safe.....?
What this statement also does is to warn prospective investors that Fiji is run by thugs and that bainimarama and khaiyum do not abide by any rule of law and can have anyone beaten up. Even you!
But the illegal AG, speaking at the annual conference for the Institute of Valuation Estate Management of Fiji, calls for investor confidence on land! Why would anyone risk investing in "any" land in Fiji if there is no rule of law to safeguard their investment?
The illegal and highly corrupt Attorney-General Khaiyum said that it is important that relevant authorities (in Fiji) “lift their game” to restore confidence in investing in iTaukei land. What a load of rubbish!
Confidence is based on the rule of law protecting rights of investors, these rights are NOT protected in Fiji. NOT under the bainimarama and khaiyum dictatorship so to "lift their game" the relevant authorities will need to LIE to investors! Investors already know this.
The simple fact is that the illegal AG Khaiyum is the problem! His corruption, childish tantrums, illegal decrees and mismanagement of Fiji are reasons why investors are staying away and deciding NOT to invest in Fiji. Even people with free-hold land are not investing. There is just too much risk that the illegal AG or bainimarama will throw a childish fit and sabotage your investment and hard work. The latest example is Cloud 9, a floating restaurant and entertainment venue located in the Mamanucas.
So given Bainimarama's announcement, to stick by his men, there is nothing really much that the Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu can do besides pretend as if the police are doing something about it. This is despite the video clearly identifying who the officers are and their acts of cruelty. What they did was torture and it was captured on video! The witnesses are the videos themselves showing the police officers and their dog committing criminal acts! This is also what potential investors see and it raises alarm bells warning them against investing in Fiji - under the corrupt dictatorship of bainimarama and khaiyum.
