Seremaia Tuiteci

Rishi Ram informed today that the PSC has commenced disciplinary procedures against  Seremai Tuiteci for violating the Civil Service code of conduct with his uncivil conducts of driving while drunk, causing a road accident and assaulting the police officer who came to arrest him.

Two questions have always bothered me about this man.

  1. He was reported as causing an accident on Grantham Road at about 4pm on a Friday afternoon while drunk. Looking at the time the incident happened, he obviously was drinking before 4pm. Those of you in the civl service will know that official work hours ends at 4pm on a Friday and 4.30 pm for the rest of the week. So it was quiet obvious that he was consuming alcohol during official work hours. However nothing has been said about disciplining him on that fact.
  2. He was initially sacked by PSC in 2005 for extorting money from some villages who came to seek help at the PM’s Office, yet he was re-employed again straight after the coup of 2006. Shouldn’t somebody be answerable for hiring a civil servant who was sacked for a serious misdemeanour and then promoted him to a more senior position then what he held before. This latest drama would not have happened had the Office of the Prime Minister done the honourable thing and not re-hire a sacked civil servant with a history of compromised work ethics.

    Hey Take a look at this one – talk about DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR


    Bainimarama may be President, again
    26 MAY 2008

    Fiji’s interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama may assume the presidency if the Great Council of Chiefs fails to appoint a Vice President.

    This is a likely scenario if the aging President Ratu Josefa Iloilo no longer remains in office either through resignation, illness or death, say experts on Fiji’s Constitution.

    Under Fiji’s Constitution, the Vice President acts as President until the GCC meets again to appoint a President.

    However, lack of support from Fiji’s 14 provinces for the new-look GCC proposed by the interim Government has put the much-anticipated meeting of chiefs in limbo.

    Last week, Bainimarama said the GCC will not meet if there is no quorum.

    Constitutional lawyer Jon Apted said given the current situation if something happens to Iloilo “than nobody can be President”.

    “There is a vacuum in the presidential office. That is why he can’t go overseas,” he said.

    “In a normal situation, the GCC could meet tomorrow to appoint a President.

    “So this current state of affairs is not supposed to be happening.”

    Professor Brij Lal, one of the architects of the 1997 Constitution, believes that Bainimarama “could simply declare a state of emergency, assume the President’s powers and carry on”.

    “Bainimarama is intent on having his way,” he said.

    “He has done it before. Soon after the December 2006 coup, he simply asked the President aside and he assumed his powers.

    “Given the power he has –he is the most powerful man in modern Fijian history: commander of the military forces, head of government, minister for Fijian Affairs and a host of other ministries including the Public Service—he can do anything he wants.”

    Very good post Adi Kaila, but how can this be so?

    Why is he getting so much support when he clearly has minority support and is clearly a gross embarrassment to this Country.

    How can it be that a single man with no popular support can assume so much power that he can do what he wants?

    One thing is for sure, this whole debacle has demonstrated loud and clear just how fragile our Constitution is and how hopeless the Controls are in our procedures. Four Coups and only one set of perpetrators have been tried and convicted and only then because they weren’t supported by the Military or the Mara/Ganilau Dynasty.

    The Judiciary has rolled over, the Police have been rolled over AGAIN and we have no way of fixing it.

    Frank wants a Clean Up Campaign but yet he and what he represents is the very thing that needs to be cleaned up in Fiji.

    A Dilemma we have…

    No solution – no elections: Bainimarama
    Monday, May 26, 2008

    Taken from / By: google

    Interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has told Radio Fiji News that if we cannot find a solution to the problems faced since 1987, there will be no elections.

    Commodore Bainimarama says a solution is needed before moving forward.

    He said that no elections will take place if there is no solution – no matter whatever has been said about conducting elections Commodore Bainimarama says the solution lies in the proposed People’s Charter.

    He has urged the provincial councils not to reject the proposed People’s Charter, it will do them no good.

    Commodore Bainimarama has called out to those who reject the charter not to be present during the charter discussion in the villages but only those who want to move the country forward.

    He stresses that – people cannot say NO to the proposed People’s Charter.

    The first paragraph made me laugh so much – I mean to say it’s the most ludicrous statement to come out of the lying mouth of $50 ep – read on it gets more ludicrous – Thank God we have these fools around to make us laugh with their continuous grandstanding otherwise we’d all be in tears with the way they have usurped this Nation, Hijacked the legal Government and doing their damnedest to disinherit us all of our human and legal rights.

    Rather rich coming from a complete loser who has broken all these rules he is preaching about

    Well I can tell you now that madams ganilau and Nailatikau will not have a bar of that as that is where they want live

    Minister gives new officers advice
    Monday, May 26, 2008

    INTERIM Defence Minister Ratu Epeli Ganilau told 22 graduating officers they must always choose the side of morality, be fair, just, honest and straightforward.

    The former military commander, while speaking at the Republic of Fiji Military Forces commissioning course graduation at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua on Friday, told the officers they must show themselves to be “worthy of the maxims of commissioned service in the army”.

    “You must learn to make firm decisions and accept responsibility for them without seeking to shift it to either superior or subordinate,” Ratu Epeli said.

    He said the role of a leader was not to merely command but to lead, and that their decisions would affect the lives of the men and women who served under them.

    Ratu Epeli said the graduation was the beginning of an intricate and thorough process of training and that learning did not stop there.

    “You will develop qualities that will be indispensable in your career: leadership, teamwork and discipline,” he said.

    Ratu Epeli added the work of an officer was not only physical, although he must develop stamina and strength, but mental as they must adapt to various technical subjects such as organisation, tactics and logistics.

    They’re all at it today making mad statements – Ganilau, Nailatikau and dear ol Frankie

    What is Moon Mania ? It has the following symptoms:
    Frantic behaviour, unreasonableness, constant restlessness and calamitous behaviour.

    Lord Blackstone, an 18th-century English jurist, was the first to define a condition of madness exacerbated by the lunar cycle: :

    “A lunatic, or non compos mentis, is properly one who hath lucid intervals, sometimes enjoying his senses and sometimes not and that frequently depending upon the changes of the moon.”

    During the 19th century, the German psychologist Ewald Hering observed in his textbook of psychiatry that “with full moon came increasing mania.”

    And at the Bethlehem (or Bedlam) Hospital in London, inmates were chained and flogged at certain phases of the moon “to prevent violence.”

    One song comes to mind:

    I see the bad moon arising.
    I see trouble on the way.
    I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
    I see bad times today.

    As talks continue, some advice from John Wesley
    26-May-2008 Fiji Daily Post Editorial.

    We’ll the answer is pretty simple really: He’s a man of double speak as most cowards are. And here he is expecting to gain the trust of Fijians.
    Harden up Frank! Your bullshit precedes you.

    I wonder how many at the MSG conference will be lining up to be photographed with his eminence. Hopefully Frank will either take his crisp new whites with him, or a new suit that allows him to look like he’s impeccibly dressed – its the only disguise his pathetic mind has got.

    I once thought amnesty was the least worst option. A South Pacific multi-lateral force invasion however could be too much worse. The guy needs to be necked!. Exile in South Africa in the current environment mightn’t be that bad either.

    Where are the responses from Australia and NZ to Frank’s latest delusional outburst? I know there are Budget releases and Bastion Point commemorations to consider, but both are kind of demonstrating a certain lack of capacity. I’ll sure as hell be remembering that come year’s end.

    @ soro. The last 16 months have NOT been a waste of time for Chodo’s illegal regime.

    The situation is probably exactly what Chodo has been planning all along.

    His main aims are to destroy Fijian sovereignty, wrest land ownership from the taukei, dismantle the GCC and crown himself the Sugar King.

    Probably his next moves will be to
    * change electoral boundaries in favour of his traditional electorate and watering down the voting power of the taukei
    * try again to allow dual citizenship for former citizens (ie Indians)
    * get more Indian companies to open in Fiji (his “Little India”)
    * get Iloiloi out of the country, and while he is away have him declared incompetent, and put his own puppet at the head of the GCC (Ratu Iloilo, please – whatever you do, DON’T agree to go to India for treatment – you’ll never come back alive!)
    * dilute powers of GCC
    * try again to delay the elections if he can’t fulfill the above
    * he’ll try to get Justice Jitoko removed from bench. The snake can’t stand dissent from others, probably because it is his favourite tactic

    Crush the Snake! Strike Against The Snake!

It matters not what anyone thinks , this regime decided years ago just exactly what it had in mind and how it would achieve it’s goals . Anyone who believes otherwise , is deluding themselves ! The processes this regime have put into place , are merely a smokescreen to hide their real intent . And one can only assume that that is total dominance over all facets of fijian society . Hasn’t anyone in Fiji understood yet , that Fiji is being sold out to the asians from under your feet , by your own countrymen ?

    3. These silly Fijians do not know- ha!ha!ha!ha!ha! We are controlling their Military now. We will do it slowly until we destroy all the Fijian Institutions and the their land rights. The silly Fijians including the selfish Ganilau and Bai do not know and do not bother. GENOCIDE is the MISSION. It can achieved politically.

    7. Fijians are lousy merchants anyway because their eyes have always been to big for their stomach(traditionally) thus the need to have a corporate body(GCC new look) to curb the crooks that take advantage of the Natadola projects etc. I say Code of conduct is necessary because no chief should be above the law neither are accountants!

  17. Mark Manning Says:

    my previous post , is only for those who haven’t yet read it or haven’t seen it at all before , it’s one I’ve continuously reposted over the past 8 months , as it becomes relevant to current events .
    This is one of those times , as Frank is highlighting that the comments made in reply to my original post of September 2007 , are genuine replies , said in anger and hence exposing the real intent behind this coup .
    Frank is indeed a pawn in this coup , a coward who will run like the wind once all hell breaks lose .
    Why are Fijians afraid of this cowardly commander who needs someone like Chaudhry to pull his strings .
    I think it’s time to give Frank an ultimatum , lay down your arms and surrender in return for saving his family !

  18. Mark Manning Says:

    Tim , just what can the Australian Government do ?
    Each time they try to help Pacific Island nations , they are accused of interfering . If they do nothing , they are accused of not caring .
    Fiji’s destiny , is predominantly up to Fijians .
    You have to fight for your rights and freedom , not us .
    It is an internal matter , yet I’m sure , behind the scenes , Australia has done all it can to date .
    If Fijians aren’t prepared to fight for their freedom etc. why should anyone else ?
    That’s the cold hard facts my friend !

  19. Mark Manning Says:

    as a nurse , and living in the tropics at the time , we experienced an increase every wet season , of suicide and mental behaviour in our patients at the out patients section of the hospital . there was a marked increase during full moon and at times of continual rainfall .
    The human body afterall , is 60% water and the moon effects the tides !

  20. Mark Manning Says:

    The Fijian Constitution , seems to be flawed in the way it appears to discriminate against some of it’s own Citizens !
    Also , the India Fijians , don’t appear to respect the Indigenous Fijians viewpoint etc. . There is a long hard road ahead for the Fijian Society and abolishment of the Military in the short term , might just give it a chance to heal and recover sufficiently for the economy etc. to turn it’s fortunes around .
    At the current rate , it’s looking like another little India , unemployment , beggars on the streets , slums all around Suva , filth in the streets , the cemeteries , parks and town looking rundown , little to no prospects etc.
    So , you have 2 choices , continue down the path your on , the path to poverty or change direction to one of slow growth and prosperity for all .

    The USA is relocating its base to Guam – now the locals there don’t like it but it will benefit us here in Fiji.

    I understand perfectly why the Chamoros don’t want the relocation to be on their beautiful Island, but for now I welcome it as the USA have insisted it is to keep an eye on the Pacific Islands. I don’t usually agree with the USA and their stance but I feel they know there’s a lot of movement between some Pacific Island Nations and countries like India, China and Korea – busy busy busy – that will not benefit the Pacific Nations in the long term.

    God only knows what these countries want with Fiji except our land – but what would they do with it I ask – off load their undesirables to settle here?

    Now that would be highly irregular!

    Or maybe they have their satellites trained right up voreqe and chaudry prasad sahebs black arses and are ready to pop them one for good.

    Wouldn’t that be just delightful!

  22. Sky Pilot Says:

    Frank says SDL Will Not Contest Next election. See and there you have it from the Horses mouth.

    So how do they justify shutting out a Political Party from stand for election. Cannot wait to hear the lame rationale from the IG Charade Parade…

  23. Tim Says:

    @ Mark: When one considers the fate of David Hicks and a Doctor (QLD) deported from Australia under Howard, and Tame Iti in NZ, there is actually quite a bit governments can do. I realise the approach is softly softly and negotiations through impartial groups – and that’s fine, except one has to wonder at what point they might review sanctions: Investigate financial affairs offshore of coupsters (as they do with many others, and impose penalties). Both Ausralia and NZ certainly shouldn’t be providing haven to those actively involved in treason or propping up those that do. I’m jst providing a contrast with some who have engaged in legitimate protest and a little theatre sport (sometimes ill thought out) and had the full weight of the law brought on them, as against those trying to bring an entire nation to its knees with only minimal consequence.
    Seems a little naiive to me – especially when we all know that the cost of assistance and “clean up” after Frank’s droppings in terms of aid, bail outs, ‘refugees’, et al will be a damn sight larger than what a well trained Queensland doctor assisting with the doctor shortage could ever achieve.

    Mark Manning, Fiji is a soverign country and it has the freedom to choose which country it goes to for assistance. Australia and New Zealand are traditional trading partners,but with the current sanctions they have imposed on the IG,the IG doesn’t have a choice for now but look to India and China. That is simple logic, if you cannot understand it,then you don’t understand anything at all.

    It will be interesting to see what happens , I wouldn’t be surprised if America , New Zealand and Australia end up with a Military presence and base in Fiji within the next 5 years .
