Bainimarama will say anything

This is what Bainimarama told an audience when he was was opening his brand new Remand Centre in Suva: “Our aim is not only to punish, but to help these people become responsible citizens for the betterment of Fiji.” This is said by the man who personally ordered a goon squad reporting directly to him to systematically beat escapees. Is that the way to rehabilitate? The message that Bainimarama sends is simple: if you use force you are in the right and you can do and say what you like. That’s a recipe for more violent crime.
