Some interesting comments from Navosavakadua

Friends of the constitution, where are you? The defence of the Illegal
Government against the litigation launched by legal PM Qarase has brought forth some principles that are dangerous in the extreme. Most of all they are a danger to the people espousing them.

The high priced lawyers defending the illegal government are defending illegality itself They are defending the principle that might is right, that if the person holding the office of President states that he needs to set aside any principle of the constitution, the doctrine of necessity says he can. If the President thinks the Prime Minister or his government has failed in any way, the President can act to oust the PM and install another PM, who can name his own government. This is strong stuff.

If the court endorses this principle they will be telling Bainimarama he has unlimited power so long as he can put a President’s signature on a piece of paper. The Parliament can be dismissed. Laws are not to be made by Parliament, but rather by somebody who thinks they are needed and has the guns to stop anyone from opposing him.

One disgusting aspect of this whole legal process is the impression that it is Laisenia Qarase who is on trial. This smacks of the rape victim becoming the accused. “Surely, your skirt was too short. You should have known what would happen” etc etc.

But it is not Qarase who is on trial, it is the constitution and the rule of
law. If the court finds against the constitution and the rule of law, it finds against itself.

What the court is being invited to endorse is the law of the jungle. If this is what stands behind the Peoples’ Charter, then heaven help us. Judge Gates could reflect on the fact that finding for IG does not mean that Frank and company will necessarily continue to rule. It could mean no more than they will rule until they too are overthrown by force. And if that happens, they won’t be able to look for protection to the rule of law.

    Isn’t it funny that Frankenstein started all this while maintaining that those in the previous coup of 2000 , should not be given amnesty , and yet , it was one of the 1st. things he himself asked for from the President ?
    What’s on trial here is freedom , it’s that simple !
    Are you prepared to give it up , how much do you want it and what are you prepared top do to keep it ?

    Okay I hate to sound like a naive do-gooder here, but there are alot of positives for the freedom fighters that come out of this situation. First of all, the REAL PM’s lawyers are able to make comments about the illegality of this regime, and the President’s actions, which are now OFFICIAL RECORD. The Pig-Snake-Ayarse cannot change these (or if they do, then they will REALLY be caught with their trousers down). Secondly, it crystalises for the public the image of LQ as our True PM and Fiji’s hope for the future. Thirdly, and this is my favourite, the lawyers that P-S-A have hired are going to cost them a walloping BUNDLE. It’s the one time in my life I’ve ever been pleased about lawyer’s fees. (What’s the difference between a lawyer and a hooker? A hooker will stop screwing you after you’re dead.) If these lawyers do not cost the earth, the people can call for an enquiry into that. If they are paid by our taxes (which does not include Chodopu$$’s money, btw) then we also have legitimate means to question that. Remember people, every cloud has a silver lining. The P-S-A right now is getting more rope with which to hang themselves.
    But we still need to MARCH in MARCH!!! 100,000 bodies in Suva, please.

    They have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.

    The day of their doom is just around the corner, sudden and swift and sure.

    What goes around, comes around.

    Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.

    Those who live by the sword, die by the sword: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

    Navosavakadua when the last time a court said that some government was illegal – it was Qarase’s government – REMEMBER.
    And what did Qarase do – he thumbed his nose at the court – two groups of Fijian lawyers advise Qarase as to how to get around this court ruling.

    I agree with you that the IG has some well paid lawyers working for it, unlike the cheap ass lawyers that advised Qarase back then on how get around the courts ruling.

    We endorsed the rule of the jungle long time ago – remember how two of our former CJs allegedly advised the coup conspirators in the previous coups as to how to work around the constitution.

    You know what Navosavakadua one of the fundamental rules in life is when you ask for justice you have to come with “clean hands” – Qarase when told by the court that his government was illegal gave the finger to the court, now you and Qarase want the same court to help Qarase – and what if the court does decide in favor of Qarase – and the IG gets lawyers to advise them as to how they can get around the court’s decision – just like Qarase did back then.

    BTW – it would be nice to know what group was TUI SAVU with when the Fijians lawyers advised Qarase back then – specially when our boy Savu is in here every other day talking about the rule of law.

    FijiGirl – that lawyer joke,, very phunny – I should also Google the “best 100 lawyer jokes”.

    I still do not understand why some of you put so much weight on this court’s decision – aren’t the judges of this court “illegally” appointed – and if this court decides against Qarase – we will all cry foul. And even if the court does decide in favour of Qarase – SO WHAT? – do you think Bainimarama will pack up and leave for Naboro.
