FICAC, the corrupt tool of a corrupt regime, has accepted a guilty plea from Kalivati Bakani in his trial for using Extinct Mataqli funds to finance the development of a computer system to manage Native Lands properly, including the timely collection of rent and distribution of lease money to owners. Rent arrears which were cut back under the system which was scrapped by Bainimarama have now blown out again. The regime is desperate to convict at least one of these men for something to justify throwing away the system it needs to meet its obligations to landowners to manage their lands for their benefit. Has Bakani been offered some special treatment in return for his guilty plea? Charges against Qarase for the same case were dropped once he had been convicted on other false charges.
