Meli – son and heir – a shining example of the Bainimarama way
How many lectures have we had from the leader of Fiji Fist on domestic violence.? He even had Khaiyum churn out a decree for it – the Domestic Violence Decree 2009. From the start there has been a contradiction between the high sounding regime rhetoric and the practice. The regime kicked off (so to say) with cowardly attacks on women taken to QEB for speaking out against the coup. Now the truth of the Fiji Fist way is laid bare to see with arrest of the dictator’s son and heir on charges of domestic violence, but the most embarrassing part of this story is the fact that the wife who complained is facing more serious charges than the husband. We can thank the Fiji Times for this story, will they now be punished for this? They are reporting something the regime claims to be worried about, but let’s see if they are true to their rhetoric or their record.
