IT REALLY IS NO WONDER THERE IS NO RESPECT FOR CHIEFS THESE DAYS

Political allegiances were put aside when chiefs of Fiji’s largest province expressed support for President Ratu Josefa Iloilo.

A delegation of about 70 from 21 districts of Ba, paid the traditional visit to Iloilo last Friday.

They were led by Ba Provincial Council chairman Ratu Meli Saukuru, a member of ousted Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase’s government.

“We decided at the recent meeting of Ba chiefs to visit one of our own, the Tui Vuda,” explains Ratu Meli.

“Members of the province and districts hold different political views and differ on the President’s decision to abrogate the Constitution. But that was not on our mind, we saw him as one of us.

“Right now he is all alone and he needs our support.”

Ratu Meli adds that during the council meeting, he urged the members to lend their support to the current administration.

“That’s all we can do now because there is no other boat going, only this boat….we might as well get on board.

“We can’t wait around for five years or argue because there is no Constitution to rely on.”

According to members of the delegation, Ratu Iloilo was touched by the visit and hosted the group to a scrumptious meal at his official residence in Suva.

    Good and meaningful move by the Ba chiefs. As much as they differed on political standings, they put that aside and made their move.

  5. Tuma Says:

    And history repeats itself over and over again. When will the Fijian people (itaukei) ever learn.

  6. kaiveicoco Says:

    Ratu Meli was wrong about ” no other boat going “.There is another boat going called ” Cagi Mai Ba” !! Only one province in Fiji has formed and set up one political party after another,first it was the ANC then came the Bai Kei Viti ( BKV ) then came another one which I forgotten the name, which was led by Meli Bogileka and Akanisi Koroitamana.But they all went nowhere.Now they are just showing to the rest of Fiji the province true colours.

I am afraid you and I (with all other like minded people on this blog) will have to stand against this lawlessness even if it means the whole of Fiji capitulates to this illegal regime.

    In one breath they say we’re going to visit the President bcos he is one of them and the next breath they’re talking…The Only boat left…No Constitution to rely on..etc etc…so in my view this is a POLITICAL visit rather than a VEIWEKANI VISIT..thus, why weren’t they taken to jail for not towing the line of the stupid and cowardice PER!!!!

    So, if those of us from another section of society want to go and see the President and put him on the spot with our own questions, will we be allowed too?

Who really gives a shit about what you say anyways. you are just showing your ignorant idiotic selves. The President is going to sit at that position until the time is right for him to step aside.

  24. Budhau Says:

    Yes – those chiefs from Ba – who do they think they are? That is exactly the kind of attitude that has got us into this ship.

    Ba is the largest province with may 25% for the country’s population. The have all the resources and biggest foreign exchange earner – Sugar, Tourism, Gold – and all that Native Land rent – a large chunk of that come from Ba. And where do we have the big Chiefs from – those Confederacy dudes?
    Those guys from Ba – they elected two Prime Ministers – Bavadra and Chaudary – and what did they do to these two guys. Ba has got probably the best record on race relations.

    And when someone mentions about the Ba folks getting whats due – the big Ratu’s start bitching about provincialism.

    If Ba province was a country by itself – it would be doing better than many of the Island nation economies, and would probably be a better run country and much better race relations.
    I think the Ba folks should at least get the forth confederacy status after the dust settles on this coup.

  25. Asgrocky Says:

    Since there are so many coups in Suva, Why doesn’t the Western Side have their own State and Government? Is it viable with all their resources. What’s the likelihood that could minimise coups if Fiji breaks up into states with their own state governments Vit Levu, Vanua Levu, Kadavu Lau, Lomaiviti, The Yasawas, Beqa and Vatulele could fit in somewhere. Then Rotuma. These people have had to put up with a lot from Fiji. I think they should be looking towards New Zealand and Australia to break away from this coup coup land. That’s my thoughts anyway.

  28. LMAO Says:

    It’s not the chiefs that’s the issue, it’s the office of presidency.

    Fiji should not have a president per se. It is another complete waste of taxpayers money.

    For such a small nation there are far too many inviable public offices.

    As has happened since 5.12.06 it is obvious the current president has not upheld the oath of office he had sworn he’d adhere to during his tenure.

    He is in fact guilty of misfeance in a public office.

    Yeap – therein lies the problem – why can’t I have a say in who my President is going to be.

    You guys who are fighting for democracy – when you win, don’t forget my democratic right to have a say in who my president should be.
    We shall talk about the Senate next.

  33. Keep The Faith Says:

    @ Budhau — correct.

    However that discussion and decision has to be made with the next newly appointed Govt with the full consensus of the majority — ie indigenous Fijians.

  35. Dau Says:

    Agrocky, you never sieze to amaze me. You really live in a delusory world of fantasy. You make the wrong assumptions of myself and others as the same person. We are the same person in opinion but totally different individuals. We are real people, you and JdArk might like to note. I for one dont hide behind a nom de plume like you JdA and the rest of your schizophrenic pessimists. I use my real name because I’m for real. A realist who accepts and adapts to the realities of today. Another wild fantasy!!! that we split into different states, what a dumb nitwit you are! How will these states sustain themselves economically, How about the basic infrastruture that has to exist to make an autonomous existence viable? You have been bogged down for too long in your world of negative fantasy. An epitome of a pessimist. Criticism and pessimism destroys families, undermines institutions of all kinds, defeat positivity and spread a cloud of gloom over nations. Unfortunately, you and your lot will be left behind while the others sail on with winds of inevitable change. The optimists far outnumber you. When you find yourself isolated in time to come and boredom creeps in you can always REWIND to your old favourite cartoons to humour you.(your favourite samoan clown) …..Ooops forgot to take my tapeworm tabs. God bless you & the people of Fiji.

  36. Asgrocky Says:

    Dau,
    I’m just an outsider looking in. You are so dry. Didn’t you say laughter is good medicine. I agree with that. The Samoan PM said Fiji is known as the friendly island with its friendly people (or words to that effect). But here you have FB parading around dressed in full army regalia in the friendly isles. That’s the picture the Samoan saw. So one can take it from there and make any kind of imagination. FB chasing and waring with his own ghost for example. FB sees enemies everywhere is another. In reality he could be his own enemy I see the sillyness and humour in that. When I go into the internet to check out some infor I need for some research, I would stop by here for a read and a few comments here and there. Sometimes I’d have a good cheer and other times I’m appalled like those 70 chiefs and the reason for their supportof the iloiloman, “there’s no other boat …..” That is a shocker of a reason. There were mixed feelings in me. One or two or a few I can understand but 70 or so, what does it say about the mentality behind this? I’m very sure, without a niggling doubt we are in the year 2009 now. What has happened with those people is something like out of an ancient page when the 70 turned rebellion to worship detestable and every abominable creepy crawly living creatures. The number 70 is creepy.

  37. senijiale Says:

    The gospel according to .. is that we’re in the minority. And…? So why bother us?

    The TRUTH HURTS doesn’t it? And so…. I ccaaannnnnn’t sleeeeppppp..lol!

  38. Budhau Says:

    On my comment about my democratic right to have a say in who my President should be – rather than the Chiefs deciding for me, KEEP THE FAITH wrote:
    “However that discussion and decision has to be made with the next newly appointed Govt with the full consensus of the majority — ie indigenous Fijians.”

    You see, Keep the Faith, I don’t think that just because the Indigenous Fijians make up the majority of the population – that does not translate into them voting as a bloc. Thus it is not the indigenous people who will decide what the constitution would be – It would be consensus of all Fiji citizens. You have to get away from this racial mindset.

    Of course, I understand that majority rule concept – that the majority decide policies etc. for everyone.
    However, the laws that we find in the constitution – some of those are there to protect the basic rights of minorities regardless of race, religious affiliation and all that.

    I think there is a consensus on that one-man-one-vote idea – but if that is to work, we have to make sure that votes of some people do not get diluted. Thus, the size of the population in one constituency must jive with the number of seats.

    Secondly, we cannot have a small group of Chiefs who decide who the President will be – and they have been playing musical chair with that position so far. Those chiefs also hold a balance of power in the Senate. In any democracy, who gets to be part of the legislature and the executive branch is decided by the people.

    So you see how when you demand a restoration of democracy in Fiji, you have to also support some of the basic principles of democracy.

    BTW – I always knew that this ain’t about democracy – democracy is just a good cover to fight the regime in Fiji, specially when you need the support of the international community.

  39. Keep The Faith Says:

    No Budhau it is you who have to move away from the realities on the ground.

    You already concede that the indigenous population is the majority.

    Unfortunately if like Aiyaz folks think they can bulldoze the process by prepping a roadmap like the Charter and forcing mindless stooges to say “Aye”. It’s just not going to happen.

    I think we all know about our Chiefs — but let the people decide that. Not you or me. That is democracy.

  40. Budhau Says:

    Keep the Faith – there is nothing to concede – the census states that 57% of Fiji population is indigenous.
    What you are assuming, incorrectly, is that this 57% will vote en bloc.

    We just saw those chiefs from Ba, showing their support of the President. There are three Fijian in the regime who come from chiefly families.
    So, do you see that a coalition of some Fijians and others can easily form a majority in the next government.

    The point here is that even before an election, we have to make some decision about the constitution – I think this is the time for Fijians to make up their mind that if they are for democracy, than the electing of the President and the Senators must be done by some democratic means. BTW, since you said something about we all know our chiefs, maybe you can elect them also.

    The chiefs have a place in the Fijian society and culture – that don;t have a constitutional role to play. They got this House of Lords mentality from the British – this would be a good time to put a stop to this.

    With 57% of the population, there will be more Fijians in the House and the Senate, that is not the issue. The problem that the chiefs and the elites have is that they will lose their hold on power – not the Fijian people as a whole – with that kind of numbers, they will always make sure that their interest is taken care of. Their interest may not be the same as those of the Chiefs and the Fijian elite.

Since 1987 when maseki Dr Bavadra was couped by Rabuka, some of us protested with roadblocks and banners on the Coral coast highway with some of us actually rounded up at gunpoint and thrown into the cells of Sigatoka. Again in 2000 the protest banners came out.
    If you think that we will go quietly away or will join Bainimarama or the Momo levu na Tui Vuda in their lawlessness, think again. Instead we appeal to you to do the right thing and have some pride in that uniform that you wear, have some backbone and stop this lawlessness in Fiji. You dont have to follow illegal orders. Get out if you have to. Otherwise, expect the consequences here in this life and in the life to come.

  42. Keep The Faith Says:

    No Budhau what you are conceding is that the 57% majority is clueless.

    True some provinces have cosied up to the treasonous regime but you watch when we get back to normalcy. That is Fijian politics.

    And no we can not make any decisions about the constitution now. Good try but it’s illegal.

    Whatever the role that the people decide for the chiefs — all that must be prescribed within a legal framework and by a legally ELECTED Govt.

    No short-cuts.

    also you can clarify this with the elders from Narewa, Nadi.
    The Ka levu of Nadroga gave back the land to you people to leave on but he just wanted to show his status in the west. So you should be grateful that he gave back the land….so we just reminding you people of Ba to tread carefully because history might repeat itself and as blood relative and kwai yata we support him.

    To This is Navoha:

    Am just a little curious. I love history and it’s lessons. You mentioned that the Ka Levu conquered the majority of the west (if not all). Now I have never heard of this before. You maybe right. But how come when people from other parts of Fiji refer to the chiefly hierachy of the West, why do they always refer to the Tui Vuda? Why is the Tui Vuda, from long before, always a central figure among chiefs in the west? If the Ka Levu truly conquered the west, don’t you think he should be the one that stands “higher” then all else? I have even heard from a close friend of mine (he’s from the west/Ba), that should the 4th confederacy stand, the Tui Vuda will be the head. I reckon if I kicked everyones butt back in the day, I should be the top dog……. !! don’t you think?

    I have to say I am so terribly ashamed of the President and the chiefs who visited him to show their support.
    If the President really had the interest of the people at heart he would not have continued in the presidency immediately after the coup. He would have resigned!
    For those of you who say that what is happening is Fiji today – the abrogation of the constitution and its effects – is Bainimarama’s doing and not the President’s, I say that’s a whole load of bull. Well, yes, Bainimarama is the main player. But Iloilo (and I have no more respect for him, the chiefs of Ba and elsewhere), I’d like to know from him personally if I can, what exactly has he done for Fiji since December 2006. What has he done to restore democracy in Fiji? Nothing, just having a free ride at Government House. My word, does he have not conscious? No shame?
    What exactly is his role as the President? We have every right to question him about this because we are paying for his livelihood for doing nothing. And what exactly is his wife doing? Does she not feel sorry for the old man, or is it more important for her to lap up the good life up on the hill? I dont believe anyone has any respect for women like that. Why cant she persuade Iloilo that they retire to the village where they will be cared for by the people of Vuda.
    As for Iloilo’s people, dont you care for him enough to urge him to return home to live the rest of his life in peace and dignity instead of eating up taxpayers’ money.
    Does Iloilo realise the extent of damage created since 2006? I dont think so. If he does, he doesnt care so long as he gets paid for doing nothing.
    What say you?

    To Free speech 1162:

    You have worded your comment well. I do agree with you. As it has been mentioned before in this and other blogs, the people of Vuda had on 3 different occasions approached the Tui Vuda. That is stale news already. But on many occasions the military have really blocked or even attempted to divert any attempts to retire the President. Because they know that the President is their trump card…… of sorts !! Well the First Lady is entirely another story. Close sources have mentioned that she loves the limelight. Other sources have said that she is even on the side of the military. Sad …ain’t it? Conspiracy ? Maybe…. !! The GCC and the govt back in 2004 knew that he was not mentally capable to be in that position. They asked him to continue. Why? I have no idea. There are so many rumors flying around. But all these rumors have led me to ask one simple and honest question. If Bainimarama could be the President or if he can choose whoever he wants to be the president, why does he keep the Tui Vuda as Prsident?
    Bainimarama knows full well that the Tui Vuda is not mentally capable to sustain that position, from even 2004-5. And he knows without any doubt that in a court of law, that medical condition nullifies anything that the president has ever done. That is to Bainimaramas disadvantage. But yet he keeps him there? Why?
    I feel that the President has to retire a.s.a.p. No doubt !! I know about the anger the people of Fiji feel towards him. That is understandable. Besides he is getting paid with Tax payers money.
    …..But when people curse him out and belittle him, I feel the need to stand by him. He is still my chief who just happens to be caught in rut that Bainimarama created. What can he do really? Tell Bainimarama to step down? Even if he did, Bai is not going to budge.

    @ Freespeech 1162

    From 2005 we have been trying to retire the President and bring him home but we were rebuffed by Frank and a certain chiefly faction.Frank realized that we were serious abt retiring him so he sent a delegation down to Viseisei which was led by Rabuka and the Fijian Affairs to traditionally ask the TUI VUDA to please hold the Presidency until he passes on.

    These are the reasons why we wanted to bring the Chief home:

    1) WE DID NOT WANT HIM TO BECOME A MEDICAL BOARD

    2)WE WERE CONCERNED THAT HIS OFFICE WAS ABUSED BY FRANK (AS HE WAS SIGNING DOCUMENTS FOR FRANK WHICH HE DID NOT UNDERSTAND NOR RECALL.

    3) WE DID NOT WANT THE CHIEF TO BE BLAMED BY THE PPL OF FIJI FOR ANY WRONG DOING.

    So can you really blame him?. You see FREESPEECH1162 WE KNOW THAT HIS MEMORY was so far gone by 2005 you know why , because by 2005 when he
    got off work and was driven to GH when they got to GH he would often ask
    “who’s house is this”.? Who lives here.?
    BTW that was 4years ago, do you seriously think he is doing all of this on his own based on his own judgement .

    Wht abt the western chiefs who visited him?. Do you seriously think they would make negative remarks abt this administration ?. NOPE !!
    You know y cos they know say anything negative and there visit would appear like a protest. BTW it’s those western chiefs and their ppls who voted 2 western guys into gov’t, Dr. Bavadra and Chaudry , and let me remind you the economy of Fiji is in the WEST.

    Kivei Masonic,

    Thanks for your concern….the truth is Nadroga people or may i call it Nadroga culture is that an outsider is always held with high respect.They normally give authority to an outsider then within ……because of confidence they have within themselves, an outsider brings a different perspective and because of their culture(vakarokoroko & vakamenemenei) they give their all & are more focused.

    This can be witnessed in the villages,rugby & funeral(kovana). for example if you see past Nadroga rugby team you will noticed most of the Coach & captain are always outsiders…the likes of Rev Rinakama,Ifereimi Tawake, Isaia Rasila, Taoba, Tawayaga,Tiko Matawalu,Paula Bui(current Manager NRU) & etc

    So let me enlighten you about the history….THE DEED OF CESSION that was signed in levuka were mostly signed by the chiefs of the east & north but the only representative from the west was Ka Levu – Ratu kini Nanovo whom i mentioned in my earlier comments conquered all the west upto rakiraki. Actually the current Ka levu had been approached a few times by bainimarama to lead just after 2006 but declined because of his stand against illegal takeover & his culture.
    Also for your information if you check with the elders from Lomanikoro, Rewa they will also inform you of the strong ties between the Roko tui Dreketi and Ka levu….during Rewa and Bau wars( Cakobau vs Qaraniqio) the mighty army of the Ka levu came in double canoes to help Rewa.That why they have intermarriage between the chiefs because of that allegience to be always be maintained.In Bau only two kind of people can wear masi vulavula on their head or hat through the village. The vuaka loa of nakorotubu, Ra & Davutukia people of Nadroga.

    i hope i have clarify you some issues regarding the real ruler of the west & etc.Like i have said before, we know it but we keep it low because its our culture.

    @ Navoha

    During the late 80′s and well into the 90′s when the western chiefs were congregating abt the establishment of the 4TH CONFEDERACY, the discussion was @ the point where who was going to drink 1st, all the other western chief’s except Ra and Nadroga/ Navosa chose the Tui Vuda to drinkl first.

    After Ra stated why they should drink first, the TUI WAYA said “no”, and told the Ra Chiefs, “sa waqa tiko na neitou buka mai WAYA dou qai yaco mai,gunu i liu na TUI VUDA”.

    Then the KA LEVU and the other Nadro chiefs complained saying,”WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE TUI VUDA?.” The late and former Taukei Nakelo (Ratu Epeli Vuki Tavai) turned to the Ka Levu and the other Nadroga chiefs and asked,”DO YOU PPL KNOW WHERE YOU COME FROM?.” “DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING?”. None of your chiefs said a WORD, AND WHAT DID THE TAUKEI NAKELO TELL YOUR CHIEFS,” MUTU NOLO”!!!!!. Why didn’t they raise that issue abt Ratu Tevita Makutu and his son’s RAVURAVU in the west, it would have been a very good stance, I RECKON.

    You see MASEKI, WESTERN CHIEFS never emulated the style of CHIEF SUPREMACY like Bau did back in the days, power through successes in TRIBAL WARFARE, we embrace and sustain our hierachy through blood line, and descendants of the VU KEI VITI MAKAWA . All that Ravuravu doesn’t really matter in the WEST it has just become a FOOTNOTE TO US.

    That is why the TUI VUDA is always referred to as THE PARAMOUNT CHIEF OF VUDA because of the “BLUE BLOOD LINE” traced right back to LUTUNASOBASOBA who was the 1st TUI VUDA,that line has never been broken. We are probably the only Taukei’s that has our traditions and customs intact to this very day, our style of governance in our village and the succession of our chief’s can not be compared with any other village in Fiji,
    “look around you”.

    Vinadu~.

    BTW, The Vuda chiefs probably foresaw that, that type of gaining power through tribal warfare was short lived, or it doesn’t last. “look around U”.

That was the true feeling in the west .
    The move by FB was to keep the west because it might create a social disorder & mainly of its economic power base. During that meeting the chiefs of Ra and Ka Levu did not want a separate government because of its blood ties to the rest of Fiji…..as tovo dina vaka taukei….vei vakarokorokotaki, veivakaluici, tikovata & DUAVATA.

    As usual like their culture they gave it to an outsider to represent them & that was Tui vuda.Because at that time they agreed that the only nobleman that could be close as Ratu Mara qualities was Tui Vuda(ex school teacher,very respectable & level of education) …but da mai raici qo …. e warai e dua tani na roka sa mai boroya qo…For your info…Ka levu name was proposed by some chiefs of Ba & tauvu from Ra to take up the Presidents post but he declined because of his age,experience, level of command of english, education and his culture(outsider to lead) and mainly he did not want to be a laughing stock as he knew that the president post was just a rubber stamp for FB.

    Are you really from Navoha/Nadroga? I ask because you don’t really sound like one. I have many relatives and friends from Navoha/Nadroga, some of the nicest folks I have ever come across. O iko tam kodaki o koru na lequ maseki. Miti viyawaki saraga. If the Ka Levu was where the President is today, would I be cursing at him….? Never !!!. You know why? na gauna o vosaca taka kina na Tui ni dua na Vanua, o sa vosaca taka talega na nona lewe ni vanua kei na Vanua !!! If the Ka Levu was to meet the Tui Vuda today, they will embrace like family, like brothers. They both know their ties to each other. You have mentioned Ra, Rewa etc. Before all that, Vuda and Nakuruvarua had ties. I ask you this, what does Nakuruvarua mean? How did that name come about?
    But it is “insignificant fools” like you, that speak without even thinking about what you are saying. Your seseraurau’ness is evident in your deliberate attempt to use the Ka Levu’s name is this blog. Vacava ke sa toso tikoga na vei ba qo, qai tekivu me vosavosa ca taki talega na Momo Na Ka Levu? Will you like that? Is it fair on the Momo Na Ka Levu, to the Vanua i Nakuruvarua? huh? the answer is no. Na nomu vosaca taka na Tui Vuda se o ira na Momo ni Yasana o Ba, do you really think if the Ka Levu was reading this blog, would he be supporting you? Hell no !!!. He most likely will kick your ass and your mouth. I know he disagrees with the Political situation…no doubt. But traditionally we all stand in the same distinct place.
    Na tosotoso ni vei ba qo, o na qai kidacala e dua e na qai vosa taka lesu yani na Ka Levu o vala taka tiko mai qori. But my promise to you, even though you are an asshole, I will never do that . So think first.

    Update: 6:48PM Within three months of cracking down on Fiji’s prevalent drug problem, police have uprooted an estimated $400m worth of marijuana plants.

    This was revealed today after successful raids of 26 farms in Navosa. Several villagers linked to these farms are in police custody.

    The special operation was led by the Head of the Drug Unit, Inspector Sakeo Ganivatu.

    “They uprooted marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $200million,” said assistant police spokesman Sergeant Atunaisa Sokomuri.

    “The raids were conducted as part of the police operation,Yadra ni Viti Rua.”

    Sgt Sokomuri said officers from the Police Drug Unit and the Ready Action Unit carried out the two-week long operation in Yau Yau district in Navosa.

    The earlier operation, Operation Yadra Viti, was also carried out in Navosa, in March.

    Police netted more than 10,000 marijuana plants with a street value estimated at $200million.

    It is Fiji’s biggest ever marijuana raid according to police records.

    Police have yet to determine the exact worth of the latest operation.

    FIJI”S JUNTA JUDGES – By Chris Merritt, The Australian, 29May09

    “FEAR and loathing are reaching impressive new heights in Fiji after the most recent manoeuvres by that country’s dictatorship.

    By stripping the Fiji Law Society of the right to issue practising certificates, the military government has all the tools it needs to embark on a purge of that country’s lawyers.

    From the perspective of military strongman Frank Bainimarama, such a move would have a nice touch of symmetry.

    The stunning reappointment of Anthony Gates as the dictatorship’s chief justice indicates that it is quite prepared to engage in a purge of the judiciary.

    After sacking the entire judiciary, Bainimarama is now reappointing only those who are in the regime’s good books.

    So why wouldn’t the regime engage in a similar move against lawyers?

    Fiji is, after all, crawling with lawyers who are none too pleased about what the military is doing to their country.

    But before jumping to conclusions, it is worth focusing on the man who must take responsibility for these moves: attorney-general Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

    Those who know him say he is unlikely to be attracted to such a blunt method of achieving his goals. He sees himself as a far more subtle operator.

    So instead of engaging in a purge, Sayed-Khaiyum might be hoping to achieve the same goal by other means.

    A credible threat of a purge might be all he needs in order to encourage Fiji’s lawyers to toe the line. In many ways, this would be even more insidious than a purge.

    If the regime’s goal is to intimidate the Law Society and its members, the heavy-handed weekend raid on the Law Society’s offices begins to make sense.

    With burglar alarms screaming, the regime’s foot soldiers entered the Law Society’s offices on Saturday and removed every complaint file they could find about Law Society members. The burglar alarms were entirely appropriate.

    While the attorney-general’s tactics are worth watching, the most startling move was by Gates. By signing on with the dictators last Friday, Gates has removed all doubt about where he stands and has played into the hands of his critics.

    You can almost hear the staff of the International Bar Association in London shaking their heads as they mumble “we told you so”.

    Gates featured prominently in an IBA report that had criticised the rule of law after the 2006 coup. That report, in turn, has itself been criticised.

    Before the events of April 10, when the constitution was abrogated, Gates and the other judges who took office after the 2006 coup could at least argue that they held office under the constitution.

    Their sacking in April prompted widespread sympathy and expressions of concern from the Australian Bar Association — an organisation that had previously warned of the risks of accepting judicial appointments in Fiji.

    Because of the unconstitutional actions of the regime between the 2006 coup that brought Bainimarama to power and April 10, that argument had a few difficulties. But after April 10, it’s impossible.

    What happened on Good Friday was not quite a coup, but it marked a major departure from the previous order.

    It presented Fiji’s judges with a choice and it’s revealing to see how they have responded.

    Thomas Hickie, who was also criticised in the IBA report, was one of the three Court of Appeal judges who precipitated the Good Friday upheaval by ruling that the Bainimarama regime held office illegally.

    Hickie is back in Australia and will not accept office under the current arrangements.

    Before April 10 there were two types of judge in Fiji: those whose commissions pre-dated the 2006 coup and those who were disparagingly referred to by their critics as “junta judges”.

    After April 10, the debate about whether it was proper to take office after the 2006 coup has been overtaken by a much more clear-cut and important argument.

    Fiji’s judges still fall into two categories.

    But the dividing line is now April 10 and the divisions within the judiciary are much sharper. Those who swear to uphold the decrees of a dictator might be maintaining a form of order but that falls a long way short of the rule of law”.

I went to assist in the development of a certain sport which finds the west lacking in development but very abundant with talents. One of my favourite place to go to for workshops, clinics and tournaments is the west because of the abundance of talents there and I have made alot of good friends there through this sport that I am a part time development officer in.

    I got back at lunch time today and was met with the news of the suspension of the annual Methodist conference. I decided to look through the blogs for their views on this new development. I got a shock when I came to this particular blog to find the small minds that inhabit this small insignificant space in cyberspace are still at it. My God, SERIOUSLY, don’t you people have a life outside cyberspace? I’m sure you do. Stop trying to put a stamp of approval on the current going ons. The more you try to justify yourself, the more you become unjustified. It is the order of the day for the current government and all its supporters. We momentarily come in to contribute and to cause blood levels to rise and then we leave. One will be forgiven for thinking that some of the bloggers in here are on somebody’s payroll just to sit in front of their computers and blog away to kingdom come. Think outside the box, get outside of the box, spread your wings and soar high into the sky to get away from the small birds of a feather that naturally flock together. In other words, GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!!

    I am moving on…..The more you remain in here is an indication that truth hurts and it hurts baaaaaaaad….Watch your BP……It just might decide to rise and that is bad for the health……And then I might owe your BP one for terminating you off the face of Gods’ earth….See you in another topic but not here. i.e If you are still around.

    Hey JB – if it’s any consolation, the mere presence of these junta losers trying to spin their fake wars in here is a good indication that we’re moving on and up, stealthily & sure! Cheers.

    @ navoha,
    Cola vina,
    Matai mada ni ka, na yasayasa kece vaka ra a wili kece tu i nadroga vua na turaga na kalevu, then the people wanted to have their own chiefs so it was divided.. Ba is the biggest province in Fiji and probably the wealthiest.. if they (the chiefs of ba) decided to form their own government, Fiji will suffer, as Ba is providing the Backbone of Fiji’s Economy.. so enough crap and insults to my province.. navosa madaga e sega ni rawa ni dua madaga na nona yasana, always relying on Nadroga.. u guys dont even have a town so galu tu rewa… sa koya boto gi na kea levu
