Ozzies say NO to charter-begging mozzies!

Everyone kaila together : Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie… oy, oy, oy!!

SV says VINAKA to His Excellency, Mr. Batley, for steadfastly refusing to finance the illegally constituted NCCBF cum con-artists in promoting their farter-charter! 

So what’s plan b, Jonny boy? Forceline ga, eh?

The Australian Government has reiterated that it will not assist Fiji until it shows progress towards democracy.

Australian High Commissioner to Fiji, James Batley told a local radio station their Government will not assist Fiji in the consultation process for the proposed draft People’s Charter.

Mr Batley said Australia will not support the draft Charter.

Reportedly National Council for Building a Better Fiji, Head of the Technical Support Secretariat, John Samy, hoped that overseas donor countries would now come on board to assist in the process.

    Bula! bloggers…glad to be back in blogger-land after a well deserved (but very busy) olidei in our very own paradise of Home…isa!

    neways with u there SV..Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie..oy, oy, oy!

    Amazing to see the different views bet. intelligent beings like Mr. Batley and us bloggers (wink, wink) VS the idiots like JSamy.

    of course, JSamy can talk like that bcos he is getting his $12,000 per monthly salary eh? luveni choro-choro

  2. Peace Pipe Says:

    John Sami’s begging bowl is empty even after begging from very rich nations Oz and US. He might be better off on the streets of Suva if he spreads out his hanky and sits out a day outside Courts Homecenter. This are strong messages which he refuses to concede that the charter farter is unacceptable in Fiji as well internationally. With the big pay check he receives from the ig for his shoddy work he should be able to donate some back to help finance the doomed charter. Now civil servants and the both forces will be out using taxpayers money to shove down the charter down our throats. Go shove it up the pig’s, snake’s, lewenski’s, i-arse’s and john sami’s a@#$ would be better.

    Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaate! probly better to forget the ozzie ozzie ozzie oi oi oi shit and recognise that its a belief shared with a few more than is represented by some equally racist nationalistic macho men we see in the media. Do that and you run the risk of another 40 page Shameen report that talks about Australian and NZ neo-colonialism, hegemony, and any other excuse that can be found to legitimise a coup.
    This junta wil sieze on any shortcomings of others to legitimise their stance. It’s an approach that seeks a lowest common demonimator. We all know where that ends up. Its a Samy, Shameen, Chaudrey, Bainimarama, …………., cesspool

  4. Tim Says:

    And while we’re on that issue, perhaps Shaista might care to answer (in her next 40 page study – or any other venue) why she chastises the neo-colonialists, yet is perfectly comfortable with nieces and/or nephews taking advantage of just such a “superior” neo-colonial education. Could it be that she too doesn’t have the courage of her convictions? and would she prefer to see them safely tucked up tight in a (neo-colonial) safety net (that isn’t available to the average Fijian). It’ll be a pleasure when the day arrives that I can face you, you pathetic excuse for a woman! Pistol shooter or anything else you care to nominate. (Tokes at 40 paces is probably more likely). And as for that Bubba – I pray for the day NZ grants him some sort of asylum) as I’m sure my cuzzies in Oz do too.

  5. Forward Fiji Says:

    You tell them tim. This people went the country returns to democracy this people should definitely go to jail. No questions asked.

  6. Groggymaster Says:

    Good one Aussies – it is about holding elections – not the Charter!!!

  7. IslandBoy Says:

    Tim – you cannot honestly be challenging a “lady” to a duel!!!!!

    But back to the subject, Samy & Co. could not have pretended to think any different, why would any one in their right minded want to fund the dissemination of information on such a poorly constructed document.

    It lacked vision and clarity from day one and it boggles the mind that they would try to push it or to think anyone else might want to support such a pointless exercise.

  8. Dauvavana Says:

    @ naita IB, the scary thing is they’re distributing a copy each to all household in Fiji. How doctored would be the Fijian and Hindi translation from English and who will be able to read the full 70 plus page while worring about the next meal fo his family.

  9. Tim Says:

    @IB: No, she’d probably have me because I’d be rolling round on the ground laughing. Besides which she wouldn’t be capable of doing anything fairly, and as the “woman” of priviledge she’d be too busy trying to find ways of presenting herself as a victim to even turn up.

  10. Tim Says:

    It must be such a hard life aye? Struggling under the load of such supreme intellect, the hard earned wealth, the scales representing justice and fairness, and with all she and her sister are responsible for. Human rites – oops rights, ombudsman, all that caring and sharing they have to do. And does she get any thanks? – I guess that must be the hardest thing to handle. They all work their tushes off, and what thanks do they get? We should all feel guilty (NOT)

  11. IslandBoy Says:

    @Dauvavana – dina taucoko turaga nite – it is worrying. By the way Ropate Qalo launches his book on Fijian thought at the Holiday Inn – 5:00pm tommorow (Thurs). I think the Turaga RTB will officiate as he wrote the introduction piece, I was led to believe. Sa yawa ga o Kubuna. I wasn’t invited but plan to crash.

    I mention the launch because it would be good to have someone audit the translation of the Fiji/Hindi version from the original English document.

    What I find worrying is there is no way a concrete connection can be made between what the PR teams promise the rural populations (increased prosperity) and the pie-in-the-sky cliches contained in the document.

    I just hope our relatives are not taken for a ride. Might as well appoint Mark Manning for President and give away free toasters and VWs.

    By the way why are they doing another PR round, according to Lorrine Tevi over 1,000 villages and settlemenst had responded positively to their PR teams the first time around. If most of the smaller provinces have an average of 80 – 100 villages per, that’s almost 10 out of the 14 provinces in the bag, so why waste money and time.

    How much do you want to bet they end up with wharehouse box loads of the document because their distribution system sucks. Won’t matter as long as Dewan Chand has been paid for Quality Print doing the job instead of Government Printing (sorry)

    @Tim – You may be surprised at how charming and engaging she is in person (no excuses for her position nor her diatribes) I would piss myself laughing, if when you did meet her, got on very well – most intelligent pasisionate people do, no matter what their political persuasion.

    That would be worth the price of a first run movie – The Blonde Bombshell versus the Kiwi Crusader – Part I, wait for the sequel.

  12. IslandBoy Says:

    @Tim – just re-read your second most previous post and am absolutely intrigued – mate, if you are rolling around on the ground, how would she have you?????

  13. Tim Says:

    🙂 You’re right IB. I’m sure she can be as charming and engaging as others I’ve met. No doubt Ms Scutt and others are too. Can you arrange a meet? Preferably at some dinky little cocktail evening where we can all look down on the plebs and gasp at their misfortune. Then we can console ourselves by raising a toast (far more civilised than a duel don’t ya know) and say “we really MUST do something about all this”

  14. agent vinod Says:

    Hi Tim – are u Tim as in Timothy or Tim for Tima… sorry but I’m beginning to get curious now.

  15. IslandBoy Says:

    Tim – I’m probabaly one of the plebes you’ll be looking down at, when it comes to the social pecking order, this IB doesn’t rank very high.

    In case you don’t understand the above question Tima is the shortened version of Timaleti, a Fijian woman’s name, another version of Jemima.

    But don’t ask me the motivation behind the question – I don’t do like that.

    Apparently my asking why you would challenge a lady to duel and your subsequent response was not clue enough. Go figure!

  16. Tim Says:

    Tim as in Timothy the Tomcat

  17. Tim Says:

    Yep IB I got that, and did understand what Vinod was getting at, but seriously…..charm and grace does not a lady make. This Tim feels more comfortable as the ally cat too having suffered quite enough cocktails to last a lifetime. In fact Da Shyz n Me could well hit it off. We cud bofe snuk out da back door and I wudn’t tell if she had hersef a toke or two before rejoining the gentry. Still doesn’t mean I can abide her bullshit though.

  18. agent vinod Says:

    Thanks for indulging me Tim!

  19. Tim Says:

    But IB and Dauvavana, back to more serious things. I can just imagine such a Fijian and Hindi translation too! It could become Fiji’s Treaty of Waitangi.

    Charter rebuttal:

    PEOPLE’S CHARTER – AN INSTRUMENT OF DIVISION, NOT UNITY

    By L. Qarase
    Leader, SDL Party

    The draft People’s Charter for Change, Peace and Progress has been approved by the National Council for Building a Better Fiji (NCBBF). The document will now be distributed for consultations with the people of Fiji. We are told that support for the Charter will be gauged from “attendance registers” to be collected from each consultation meeting. In the last promotional campaign for the Charter villagers were told to sign the “attendance registers” before meetings started. Many refused to sign while others put their names down, not knowing what they signed for. There can be no legal validity to this method of getting endorsement of the Charter.

    The only legal way to get approval of the People’s Charter, in my view, would be to get majority votes in a properly conducted referendum, or through a resolution of an elected Parliament. Any other method outside this framework would be illegal and therefore invalid.

    The People’s Charter will divide rather than unite the people of Fiji. It will polarise the underlying tensions between our two main communities, Fijians and Indians; it will further alienate the “vanua” from the Government; and it could lead to religious differences becoming a threat to the maintenance of peace and stability in the country.

    The implementation of the Charter before an elected Government is in place would amount to a gross violation of the rights of the people of Fiji to make decisions, through their elected representatives in Parliament, on important issues such as those proposed in the Charter. For the indigenous population it would violate their rights to property (proposed land reforms), as well their rights to a separate Fijian Administration.

    Some key proposals in the Charter would amount to usurpation of authority of our Constitution.

    The People’s Charter is flawed from the beginning for a number of reasons, the more important of which are:

    • There is no mandate from the people of Fiji for the preparation of the Charter;

    • The composition of the NCBBF is not representative of the people. It is biased in favour of the Fiji Labour Party, the New Alliance Party, the Interim Government (IG), and coup supporters;

    • The intention of the IG to implement proposed electoral changes before the General Election would be illegal and in contravention of the 1997 Constitution;

    • The intention of the IG to make the Charter binding on future elected Governments without the authority of Parliament would be illegal and contrary to democratic principles;

    The following paragraphs examine the contents of the Charter given under each heading discussed in the document. Those proposals that are considered sensitive and controversial are given more analysis and comments.

    Preamble
    The preamble states at the beginning that the people of Fiji “Recognise that our Constitution represents the supreme law of the State, that it provides the framework for the conduct of government and the people”. And yet, the Interim Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has stated that the electoral reforms as proposed in the Charter must be in place before the General Election. If the reforms are carried out as stated, then the new electoral system will be in direct contravention of the provisions of the 1997 Constitution and, therefore, illegal.

    The preamble also states that our leaders are “to commit to the People’s Charter which represents our will”. This statement assumes that the Charter will be approved by the people. The collective will of the people can only be determined through a referendum or a Parliamentary resolution. In the absence of any of these the People’s Charter will remain a document imposed upon the people of Fiji against their will.

    The reference to the Nation of Fiji as “One Country One People” is misleading and inappropriate. Fiji consists of many different ethnic communities. We are a Nation of many different people and this fact must not be ignored. It would be more appropriate to refer to our country as “Different People One Nation”. This would reflect the diversity of cultures and traditions that not only enrich our nation, but have become a source of strength for our national development.

    One of the “key values and principles” promoted in the Charter is the notion of “merit-based equality of opportunities for all”. This would appear to conflict with the policy of affirmative action for disadvantaged people discussed under Pillar 8. The fact is that if access to government services is to be based on merit alone, then the disadvantaged in our society will remain left out. In a country where there is a wide gap between the rich and the poor affirmative action is absolutely necessary to assist the disadvantaged.

    The criteria for access to affirmative action programmes must not be available to all in society, but only to the disadvantaged.

    A glaring omission from the Preamble is a reference to indigenous rights. Indigenous rights are part of but different from human rights. The recent United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples has been endorsed by Fiji. There should be a special statement in the preamble about these rights, quite apart from the reference on human rights. When a new Parliament is elected the indigenous rights should be included either in the Constitution or as a stand-alone legislation.

    Pillar 1- Ensuring Sustainable Democracy and Good Governance

    The most important and sensitive proposal under this section is the reference to changing the electoral and voting system for elections to Parliament. The 1997 Constitution and the Electoral Act set out the provisions for Parliamentary elections. Any amendments to either the Constitution or the Electoral Act must be made through an elected Parliament. In the case of the Constitution a special majority in both Houses of Parliament is required for the amendment to become law.

    The proposed Open List Proportional Representative Electoral and Voting System is a very major change for Fiji. But this is only one of a number of options available. In addition there are variations of established electoral and voting systems that can be considered. It would appear that the NCBBF did not consider any other system and focused only on the proportional representation system.

    Under normal circumstances any substantial changes to the Constitution and/or electoral system would require the setting up of a special Review Commission, which would conduct wide consultations with the people. The report of the Commission would then form the basis of changes to be made. The changes made would of course require the approval of Parliament. Under the present circumstances in Fiji it would appear that the IG would force the proposed changes even if they are rejected by the people. It should be clearly understood that any changes to the Constitution or the Electoral Act effected outside Parliament would be illegal.

    The proposal relating to the role of the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) will open the way for military interference in the running of the Government. The role of the military is clearly set out in the Constitution and in the RFMF Act. That role is restricted to providing security, only at the request of the Police. The RFMF should have no role in the political Government of the day. It is accountable to Government and to Parliament.

    The NCBBF conveniently avoided looking at the size of the military, let alone the need for a military force for a small island country like Fiji. A number of studies into our security requirements concluded that there is no need for a military force for Fiji. There is no outside military threat to Fiji. There does not appear to be any reason for such a threat to appear.

    The Defence Review Report of 2005 had recommended a reduction in RFMF personnel from 3000 to about 1600. This reduced number would be sufficient for our internal security and to meet our commitments to peacekeeping duties overseas. The reduction could be effected over a period of time, with adequate monetary compensation, where necessary, for personnel affected.

    The Charter proposes the expansion of the role of the RFMF into national development programmes such as community development projects. Such an expanded role would mean more personnel, more budgetary allocations, and of course more arms and ammunition for training. Since the military have been involved in all coups the proposed expanded role of the RFMF would provide serious threats to our national security. An expanded role would also secure the militarization of Government machinery with all its adverse effects on the future of our country.

    Pillar 2- Developing a common national identity and building social cohesion

    The Charter proposes that “Fijian” be the common name for all citizens of Fiji. This is a highly sensitive proposal to the indigenous population. Ever since the word “Fijian” was first used it referred to the indigenous population. It is part of their psyche and part of them. Any change must have the approval of the Fijian people after very wide consultations with them.

    The common name for the citizens of Fiji is “Fiji Islander”. This is contained in our 1997 Constitution. This common name has not been used publicly. The problem is that the name “Fiji Islander” has not been promoted and marketed both locally and abroad. If the common names “Solomon Islander”, “Cook Islander” and “New Zealander” can stick, there is no reason why “Fiji Islander” cannot.

    One of the measures suggested under this Pillar 2 is to “Conduct national interfaith dialogue and sharing of spiritualities”. This proposal could lead to controversy. As far as the Christian Religion is concerned their God is Jehovah the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Israelites and all mankind. There is no other God, according to the Holy Bible which is the basis of their faith. No doubt other religious groups have their own holy books which form the basis of their faiths.

    The proposed “interfaith dialogue and sharing of spiritualities” could lead to serious differences and controversies. Where different religious faiths exist it would be better to let them practise their faiths freely with mutual respect for each other. To promote interfaith services, for example, could lead to differences and conflicts.

    The proposal to “Eliminate racial categorisation in all government records and registers”needs clarification. The “Vola ni Kawa Bula” (VKB) is the Register of all indigenous Fijians according to their Yavusa, Mataqali, Tokatoka and Koro. The VKB is a government Register. In fact the source documents for the VKB are the Birth Certificate, Death Certificate and Marriage Certificate deposited with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. The Certificates contain details of race, Yavusa, Mataqali etc. Is the Charter recommending the scrapping of the VKB?

    Pillar 3- Ensuring Effective, Enlightened and Accountable Leadership

    Pillar 4- Enhancing Public Sector Efficiency, Performance Effectiveness, and Service Delivery

    Pillar 5- Achieving Higher Economic Growth while Ensuring Sustainability

    The proposals under Pillar 3, 4 and 5 offer nothing new and exciting. The proposals under Pillar 3 and 4 represent what could be described as “Work-in-Progress” of previous Governments.

    The proposals relating to growing the economy, under Pillar 5 are disappointing. The proposed initiatives are nothing new. Most of the proposals are ongoing “Work-in-Progress” of previous Governments. While members of the NCBBF have talked about slow economic growth in the past, the Charter does not offer clear initiatives to transform our country from a slow-growth economy to a growth rate that will resolve our current problems of unemployment, low incomes, high poverty level and so on.

    The NCBBF could have taken time to re-asses the 5-year Strategic Development Plan for 2007 – 2011, and the National Export Strategy to be implemented from 2007. These documents were prepared after wide consultations with key stakeholders. They were approved at a National Economic Summit and then by Parliament. The preparation of the documents was initiated by the SDL-led Multi – Party Government. The proposals in the two documents remain valid and useful today as they were when prepared.

    Pillar 6- Making More Land Available for Productive and Social Purposes

    The proposals relating to land reforms are likely to attract a lot of attention. For the landowners it is important for them to understand the implications of the proposals and the impact on their rights as landowners. The proposals may appear harmless but they could well be aimed at weakening the NLTB further by taking away more of its powers and functions.

    The land problems in Fiji are associated with the Agricultural Landlord and Tenant Act (ALTA) and the politics of land. Essentially, ALTA regulates the leasing of native agricultural land. Under ALTA the landowner has suffered badly in terms of economic returns due to the very low rental formula fixed under the law. For the tenant too the lease term of only 30 years does not provide adequate security. ALTA was enacted in 1976 and it has outlived its usefulness. Indeed, it can be said that ALTA has become a serious obstacle to agricultural development in Fiji.

    ALTA took away six or more operating sections of the Native Land Trust Act (NLTA) which rendered the Native Land Trust Board (NLTB) virtually powerless. As a first step to resolve the land issue ALTA should be amended to transfer powers over native agricultural land back to NLTA. NLTA is the appropriate legislation for all native land. Any changes relating to native land can and should be effected only through NLTA.

    The Charter proposal to establish a “Land Use Advisory Board”, “Native Land Register” and a “Land Use Development Plan” is just another ploy to hide the real motive behind this proposal. The real motive is to establish a “Land Use Commission” (LUC) which has been mooted for sometime now by Mr Mahendra Chaudhry and the Fiji Labour Party. A LUC will further weaken the NLTB by taking away more of its powers and functions.

    Landowners must first demand appropriate amendments to ALTA to restore all powers over native land to NLTB via the NLTA. Next, they must demand market rentals on all native agricultural land without delay. These demands must be pre-conditions to any discussion on the land issue.

    Pillar 7- Establishing an Integrated Development Structure at the Provincial Level

    Based upon the introduction to this section, one gets the feeling that the real intention is to abolish the Fijian Administration. The very brief comment on the Administration is negative. It is unfortunate that the NCBBF has failed to acknowledge the tremendous contribution of the Fijian Administration to national development in all fields such as health, education, law and order, economic development and so on. It is obvious that the NCBBF did not make any objective assessment at all of the contribution by the Fijian Administration.

    The Constitution provides for a separate Fijian Administration. The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples also provides that indigenous peoples have their rights to self-government. The Fijian people, therefore, have the right to have their own system of governance as part of the whole of Government machinery.

    The proposal to establish Provincial Development Councils for each Province by integrating the Provincial and Advisory Councils will be seen by many Fijians as a first step towards dismantling the Fijian Administration. The interference in the affairs of the Great Council of Chiefs by the Interim Government can only support this perception.

    Pillar 8- Reducing Poverty to a Negligible Level by 2015

    The aim to reduce poverty to a negligible level by 2015 is laudable but rather unrealistic. In 2006 about 34% of our population lived below the poverty line. This percentage would have increased significantly after the 2006 coup. A decline of 1% each year would be achievable and this could increase to 2% each year provided much more resources are allocated to poverty alleviation programmes.

    The proposal to introduce a national minimum wage is a good one but completely impractical. With different industries their cost structures are widely different from industry to industry. Wages would therefore differ widely as well. If the minimum wage is fixed at a low level this would benefit the strong industries. Whereas, a high national minimum wage would wipe out the marginal industries.

    It would be more practical to fix minimum wage levels industry by industry. This would take account of different cost structures and profitability.

    Pillar 9- Making Fiji a Knowledge – based Society

    Pillar 10 – Improving Health Service Delivery

    Pillar 11- Enhancing Global Integration and International Relations
    The proposals under Pillar 9, 10 and 11 offer nothing new. They are essentially ongoing “Work-in-Progress” of previous Governments.

    Conclusion
    There is no doubt that the draft People’s Charter will be a controversial document. It will divide rather than unite the people of Fiji. The Charter contains some good suggestions but there are some sensitive proposals that are likely to invoke strong feelings and opposing views by the people. These include the proposals relating to electoral reforms; land reforms; the perceived marginalisation of the Fijian Administration; and the adoption of “Fijian” as the common name for all citizens of Fiji.

    The crucial question is whether the Charter will be forced upon the people or whether acceptance will be decided by a democratic process. The only democratic process is via a democratically elected Government. If the Charter is not submitted to an elected Government for consideration and approval, or if it is not endorsed by a properly conducted referendum, then the People’s Charter will not have any legal authority.

    It is easy to argue the merits and de-merits of the People’s Charter, but the crucial issue is the legal validity of the Charter itself.

    By the way have you bloggers see this from Victor Lal in today’s Fiji SUN front page:

    Chaudhry likely to go

    8/13/2008
    The interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry is most likely to leave Cabinet at the weekend, according to a top military official.

    The official also confirmed that the Fiji Labour Party leader was handed a letter shortly before the interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama left for China last Wednesday.

    The letter was personally signed by Commodore Bainimarama and the all powerful Military Council expects Mr Chaudhry to vacate his Cabinet office by 22 August.

    According to the military source, Mr Chaudhry’s departure from the interim government is most likely to be announced by the FLP national council when the party meets in Nadi at the weekend.

    “We have been told that Mr Chaudhry will go either on August 16, 17 or 18t, even though we are expecting him to leave Cabinet on 22 August,” said the military source. The council was forced to finally wield the axe after the big oil companies allegedly threatened to withdraw from Fiji over oil prices.

    According to a highly reliable source in the Prime Minister’s office, the Prices and Incomes Board wanted incremental increases in the fuel price while the oil companies asked for the price increase. The Ministry of Finance allegedly continually blocked the demand until last week when huge price increase were announced, attracting a national outcry from the general public and other stakeholders.

    The Military Council allegedly called upon Commodore Bainimarama to act, for the council felt that the latest response from the oil companies could degenerate into another damaging standoff, similar to that which took place between the interim regime and the Fiji Bus Operators, and the water bottling industry.

    “The government cannot, and does not, want to be bogged down in another high-profile damaging stand-off, especially with the all powerful oil companies in Fiji,” said the military source.

    Mr Chaudhry could not be contacted last night.

    Acting military commander Colonel Mohammed Aziz when asked whether there was a directive for Mr Chaudhry to vacate office by August 22, said “no”.

    Interim Attorney General Aiyaz Saiyed Khaiyum earlier this week also denied that Mr Chaudhry was going to resign.

    Sir Jim Ah Koy, the man tipped to take on the interim Finance Minister’s post, also denied he had been approached to return home from his China diplomatic posting.

    The military source said Mr Chaudhry had indicated to Commodore Bainimarama that along with him, FLP officials Lekh Ram Vayeshnoi and Tom Ricketts would also step down from the Cabinet. This should also include FLP supporters in the NCBBF and those on government statutory boards.

    But the military source said it was not the first time Mr Chaudhry had spelled out his intentions. He had expressed similar intentions when he was allegedly dismissed as Finance Minister last month. According to two reliable sources, one in the PM’s office and the other in the Military Council, there were a lot of fireworks with regards to Mr Chaudhry last month.

    He was actually “fired” as Minister for Finance and his termination letter was delivered to his home. His termination was rescinded after a meeting between Mr Chaudhry, Commodore Bainimarama and the Military Council.

    Confirms what Rawfiji was saying weeks ago! You go bloggers. Mainstream local media is so so slow! Vinaka ragone, me qai tiko ga na blog. Salvation is at hand. Our prayers will answered and everything in God’s time. That is so much sweeter then revenge or violence. Bit by bit the wall will come crashing down. It is crashing faster then we expected though.
