Who are these viles abusers

Who are these viles abusers

Who me? Am I really a threat to Fiji Fist

Who would believe that someone would attack Roshika Deo with vile unspeakable words posted on the internet. We won’t bother to repeat them but she should take it as a sign that she’s a threat to someone if they react in this way. We can’t really tell who wrote these messages and the Police may not be able to prove who is responsible either, but the first suspect has to be the same people who cancelled the scholarship of one of her young volunteer supporters – ie the regime of Frank Bainimarama. If he wants to remove all suspicion he should promptly restore the scholarship and apologise. Vile personal abuse has no place in Fiji.

MCP will not go down without a fight

June 2, 2014

Mahendra Chaudhry has vowed to challenge the ‘decree’ which blocks him from contesting the 2014 General Election. However it is the Constitution which bars him. Section 56 bans people from being candidates if “at any time during the 8 years immediately before being nominated” they have “been convicted of any offence under any law for which the maximum penalty is a term of imprisonment of 12 months or more”. This was tailor made for MCP and Laisenia Qarase. And it doesn’t matter whether whatever they did was more than 8 years ago. Their convictions are recent and thats what knocks them out. But Chaudhry is a fighter and he’ll take his fight to the campaign trail.

Typical regime dirty tactics

May 28, 2014

A volunteer working for independent candidate Roshika Deo has had his scholarship terminated by the Tertiary Scholarship Loan Board for “associating” himself “in political agendas”. Deo said her volunteer is a high achieving student who needs the scholarship to complete his undergraduate degree. This is an outrage and shows that the Bainimarama regime has no understanding of democracy. Bainimarama seems to think the money he spends on his scholarships, like all government money, is his personal property. Does he think that this will help him win support? All it shows people is that they have to get rid of Bainimarama. They may not be able to say anything publicly. They may be afraid to even give their honest opinion to the newspaper polls. But they will remember this when in the polling booth when they can have their say outside the sight of the regime.

Well done Rusi!

January 23, 2014

The arrest of Stefan Ali has got be the handiwork of Rusiate Tudravu, the real Acting Commissioner. Who else would be so stupid? By arresting him they bring the regime’s restrictions on speech into the spotlight. We might even get to hear what he said, which would have to be followed by Mr Plod telling us what’s wrong with it. Tudravu must think that he has a chance at the big job if he can do enough to please Khaiyum. He doesn’t know they all think he’s dumb and just leave him in a position where he can take the blame for cock-ups and be pushed aside if necessary, which is not so easy to do with a Commissioner.

What about the Baini billboards

November 28, 2013

The Land Transport Authority has complained about the number of billboards beside roads, citing them as road safety hazards. They must have forgotten about the huge regime billaboards featuring the ugly face of Bainimarama. The Viti Revolutionary Front made use of them to spray paint their messages. Why did the LTA allow the Baini billboards? One rule for the regime and another for everyone else. That’s grown to be part of life in Frank’s Fiji.

The FPF mess gets worse

November 13, 2013

We all know our Police Force has gone downhill fast since the coup in 2006. First Teleni tried to turn the force into a tent revival show. Then Naivalurua tried to lift professional standards but the rot was advanced and made worse by the FPF being forced to follow illegal directives from above such as the stop on investigating the torture video. A serious crime was filmed with faces of perpetrators clear for all to see along with the number plate of one of the vehicles but still no arrests. Now we have Policeman stealing from the scene of a crime and the victim was told if he made a complaint he would not be able to access his property, a computer hard drive he needed for his work as a teacher. Pure BULLSHIT!! A crime is a crime.

Khaiyum in hiding over Cloud Nine

November 13, 2013

The High Court in Lautoka has ordered the Police to cease trying to move the floating entertainment pontoon known as Cloud 9 from where it is currently moored on Navula Reef off Momi Bay in Nadi. Tony Philp Jr was able to show the judge that he had all the necessary approvals for his floating entertainment centre. Meanwhile Khaiyum has gone into hiding, refusing to meet with Philp or answer media questions. He can’t explain why he wants to close down a business that meets all the registration requirements needed to operate.

What’s this? Now chiefs appointed by the gun?

November 11, 2013

The report that a joint force of police and military have been visiting the Natewa area is disturbing. The regime claims the aim was to build a strengthened relationship with the people but this fools no-one. It’s clearly designed to intimidate the people into supporting the regime’s candidate for the position of Vunivalu of Natewa. In 2010 Ratu Amenatape Belo was installed as the regime-friendly candidate but his commission was withdrawn by the Almighty barely two years later. This was the second time there had been divine intervention in the selection of the Vunivalu. Will there have to be a third intervention? The fact that the regime has to send in a joint military/police force to intimidate the people gives the game away. The people do not want a Vunvalu who has the blessing of a PM appointed by the power of the gun.

Bainikhaiyum’s growth industry

October 15, 2013

The CWM may be a crumbling ruin but the shiny new facility beside Korovou prison is just one of the new prison facilities which the Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) were showing off on their fun day yesterday. But even with their new capacity there are still 150 more prisoners that there are prison beds. Bainimarama promised to cut crime when he seized government but it’s obvious this hasn’t happened. Reporting of crime has been suppressed but crime goes on. Brutality has not solved crime and never will.

This is apparently members of the Police Special Response Unit during the Senior Citizens Day celebration at Nasinu. WTF? Are the old people supposed to watch this and warn their grandchildren not to break the law?
