It's all happening here

Another eventful day in this rotten state.

A rotten report (PDF) from the Fiji Human Rights Commission. A report which seeks legitimize the coup. A report which seems to have it's timing all wrong. A report which has been dismissed by the Commissioner for Human Rights Shameema Ali:

"The report by Dr Shameem is not in accordance with Commission procedures and policy and I presume it to be her personal opinion," Ms Ali said.

"The report carries numerous errors and fabrications about the roles the Commissioners have played since 2004 and I am seeking legal advice as to what further action I shall take.

"I, as a Commissioner, will consult my colleagues as to the future of the Director of FHRC in light of the serious breaches of procedure and policy in the release of this report."


It has been dismissed by a prominent Suva lawyer in Richard Naidu:

Prominent Suva lawyer Richard Naidu has dismissed a Fiji Human Rights Commission report, saying it was "mostly laughable".

"I don't think any real lawyer will take it very seriously," Mr Naidu said after being asked about FHRC Director Dr Shaista Shameem's assertion that the 2001 and 2006 polls were unconstitutional and "justifying" the 2006 military takeover.

He said that using Dr Shameem's logic, the Chaudhry Government was as illegal as any other one since the 1987 coup.

"After all, it succeeded the SVT Government which was elected after the 1987 coup," he said.

"This would mean also that all laws after 1987 would be illegal, including the law that set up the Fiji Human Rights Commission.

"Somewhere in her academic career, Ms Shameem apparently picked up a law degree.

"Her latest effort illustrates the dangers of allowing academic sociology types to study serious subjects like law."


The Dictator Commander Bainimarama has handed "executive authority" of the nation back to Ratu Josefa Iloilo. Apparently his heart desired to do just that today and so it happened. With such stupid people doing such stupid things it's getting harder and harder to make sensible comments about rotten situations in this country.


"I've been asked who is my main adviser,"he said.

Patting his chest, he said: "This is the biggest adviser. It tells you what to do and what not to do. Yeah, your conscience. It tells you what you should be doing and what you should not be doing.

"I don't need any adviser to tell me.

"All I have to do is wake up in the morning and ask myself what should I be doing?"

He said since 2000, people had been advising him.

"Whether I take it on board or not is a different matter but they advised me one way or another."

Commodore Bainimarama said Mr Hughes might have been "targeting"a group of honorary colonels as those who advised him on the coup.

In answer to who the colonels were, Commodore Bainimarama said: "Colonel Paul Manueli, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, Colonel Tawakedrau and Ratu Epeli Ganilau."

Commodore Bainimarama said "he wished"prominent Indian businessmen were bankrolling the coup but it was not.

"Oh, I wish but no one's encouraging me.

"No, no one is bank-rolling me.

"When I go to functions people say'thank you for what you are doing'."


With all that has happened in the last month, it is increasingly becoming clear what the real "clean-up" was all about. First was to remove the Police Commissioner Andrew Hughes. With him out of the way, all pending investigations into the affairs of the Army will be thrown out or conveniently forgotten. Second was to remove all those people from important posts they held, who had criticised the Army. The third was simply to remove the current government because they all had criticised the army and had tried to remove him earlier.

The Dictator Commander thought he could find evidence to support his actions but it's very likely that he may either be fabricating them or simply not bothering because none exist. What a stupid stupid man! The only thing he has produced so far was something he obtained from an internationally renowned fraudster in Peter Foster. What a joke. Good going Frankie.

All through this month, the Military has behaved like a big bully. They've abused peoples rights and even subjected them to violence. They used intimidation and acted belligerently in removing people from positions they had no right to. Jaganath Sami for instance was removed simply because he dared to call a spade a spade.

Enough said...this is all getting out of hand. Things are starting to stink even worse then before.
