Shame Roll from Operation Clean Up (Not!!)

> It is about time to relook at the roll of dishonor and shame of the
> thieving losers on the rfmf gravy train. Here is a draft, that needs
> correcting. It is a start to do with as you will.
>
> …. just a few questions to get the ball rolling:
>
> – For all the rfmf inside government, what is their new salaries,
> – how much have they gorged individually, from the taxpayers ,
> – how much leave compensation have they got individually and in total.
> – For those no job losers like Ganilau, how much has he benefitted
> financially.
> – What is Frank’s new salary at which his leave compo was calculated.
> – What is Leweni’s current salary? What is his previous Wo1 salary?
> – What kind of allowances do the military council and their advisors
> receive?
> – How much overspent by the RFMF since 5 December 2006 on their clean up?
> – Who are all the rfmf officers promoted since 5/12? new salaries?

Because you bloggers asked for a shamelist!!

    Holy sh*t!

    Nearly 200 appointed cronies in positions of power.

    Chodopu$$ has done his homework…

    It won’t do him any good though.

    We still have the power to vote him out as and when the regime finds the kahonies to call for elections.

    God bless Fiji

    You Go SV!

  3. Talei Says:

    Wonderful!

  4. painter Says:

    Fellow bloggers, i suppose we could email SV all we know about anyone we know on that shame list and/or fill in the blanks for those yet to be added…?

    If I recall correctly, solivakasama’s email address is :

    solivakasama@gmail.com

    Let’s help SV build that “Wall of Shame” which i would like forever etched in everyone’s mind as ‘a price’ to be paid for being involved in the forceful overthrow of a legitimate government elected by the people!

    Let’s help SV complete that list before the end of the weekend.

    Go bloggers!

    It would have been far cheaper to make mark manning President ! not to mention the free volkswagon and four bread toaster !

  10. painter Says:

    Bula Adi K! Are you still on that email add?

  11. Na Dina Says:

    Inside source say FB and his Strategic Headquarters in 2004 started to vesu mona all soldiers in a “military for life” doctrine based on Alfred Stepan’s “New Professionalism” (1973)for the military. ( Google Search to prove this publication)
    This doctrine esentially said it was OK fro the Military to intervene in government and politics for LIFE!!! Yes folks they are planning to stay for LIFE in all the above positions.
    This was FB’s way of ‘legitimising’ his coup. The good officers knew this and left.. the rest is History… the idiot Officers who are now paddling his sinking canoe have come to realize this deception now… standfast tiko ragone! kua na dro sa vakarau toso cake tale na kemudou i sau me kemudou i vesu.. haha

  12. IslandBoy Says:

    SV – well done, extremely comprehensive. Thank you for responding so fully to our requests.

    May I just add that in some cases like FBCL it was actually Daniel Whippy who was appointed by Mahen and the SDL let slide, who in turn appointed the little Khaiyum junior brat.

    We should keep in mind that people like Daniel Whippy will continue to do Mahen’s bidding if they remain in their respective board seats.

  13. IslandBoy Says:

    @ Na Dina – can we ask Kutusebe to send me a personal message.

  14. Say True! Says:

    Thank you SV. The magnitude of Chodopu$$ Bai’s influence is just starting to sink in. Unfuckenbelievable for lack of a better word to describe this IG.
    Can anyone include the businness houses that supported this nightmare?

  15. IslandBoy Says:

    SV – sorry to keep bringin up additional isues, but could we also inlcude a category for people like Francis Kean as Commander of the Navy who was handed a lenient sentence after killing someone because of his connections to Frank.

    Also all the members of the NCBBF and the key senior staff members of the Task Force like Samy, Peter Wise and Filimoni Kau. I would hate to see Jo Nawalowalo, Filimoni Ralogaivau & Co get off the list scott free.

    Under entry nos: 10 & 11 you mention FNPF Chair and CEO succession but can we also include board members like Daniel Urai and Felix Anthony.

    Also another category for the interim Ministers who were kicked out like Poseci Bune etc. and others who serve on committees the regime has dreamed up like Taufa Vakatale and as they say in the local slang, “… and not forgetting Fiji’s PM immediately after the coup, Dr Jonah – this one goes out to you too.”

    Bainimarama’s charges JUST BEFORE DEC.

    For his recent outbursts: Possible offences; Treason- 50 of Act 17, Section 65, 66 Cap 17 and Disobedience of lawful order- 144 Cap 17. Pending cases: Removal of late President Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara; Abrogation of the 1997 Constitution; CRW murder investigation- Nabua PEP 8/00; Minister for Home Affairs – disobedience – CID/HQ PEP 16/06; Army fraud (Suspect Esala Teleni). Action requirement: NIS Intelligence report; Legal advice – Force legal; Doctrine of Necessity ruling – (RS vs Chandrika Prasad’s case); Uplift files from DPP (The Fiji Sun, 6 November 2006)

  17. Nostradamus Says:

    Looks like Voreqe has loaded up the taxpayers with his blood suckers. Will they all be given the sack when he is brought down?

  18. qitawa Says:

    Div Dramoda put in as board member of AFL by regime. No qualifications and cant write a thing. Picture of him in fijivillage with hair gelled with a buckets worth to impress the army officers. Is he a male contestant in the hibiscus caarnival? Big time gay too so i wonder what was his intention in visiting the camp?

  19. Fiji Democracy Now Says:

    What about the Public Affairs Committee? It is supposed to be a Committee of Parliament. Yet we have a PAC chaired by Manu Korovulavula who was rejected by the voters as a member of parliament in 2006. More people cast informal votes than voted for him.

  20. qilaqila Says:

    Dont forget journalists who pose as fb’s cronies….names please…disgrace to the profession…bloody shameful.

  21. LUVfiji Says:

    Varanisese Tavaiqia , Princess of Vuda – Fiji Trade Representative, Taiwan
    Karai Vuibau – Fiji Consul, Sydney

    Did I overlook these names?

  22. Tui Says:

    Wow sa malo a drakai SV. Thanks for the effort team. Also a list of people killed, tortured and imprisoned by the police and RFMF. An update on who has been charged and who the other culprits are. Their location, phone contact and addresses etc. Remember this site has the most hits any day besides the other mainstream media sites. There were other blogs that tried to put up the “shame list” but am not sure what happened to them. Blog on ragone.

  23. Frida Says:

    SV – hope to see the shame list updated and distributed widely so that embassies are aware of those supporters and the tightening of the noose should mean hitting them where it hurts most – family members getting travel ban also.

  24. IslandBoy Says:

    @LUVfiji – Bula Vinaka Marama Nite. I read with interest your post about Karai Vuibau and Di Vara Ligalevu (Tavaiqia) and wanted to raise a point regarding the two of them as well as Mr. Tuisawau (as someone earlier mentioned) of AFL.

    In the case of long serving professional people like these three who have been in that particular service stream for all their working lives and are due for upward promotion, is it fair to place them on the shame list.

    After all the promotional opening occured at this time and they are well qualified to take up these positions. This cannot be classified in the same basket as say Leweni’s posting to either China or Information.

    Having said that I should also declare that I am closely connected to both Karai and Di Vara not only through previous work but also personally.

    Leaving that aside, my issue is that there will be many people who are line officers and due for upward movement due the official advancement process and they should npot be victimsed because of this.

    After all we are losing a lot of professionals due to outbound migration and must replace the empty seats with professionals as best we can. Vinaka!

  25. Mark Manning Says:

    i’m so impressed with this role of honour , that I’ve saved it on my computer , thanks for that info .

  27. soro Says:

    Agree with @IB . I have great respect for Adi Francis and she is a true professional in her role so the list should not include her and people like her who are there and have been serving in their particular contexts for a long time already.

    Otherwise the list is comprehensive and needed so we can see what movements there have been of those that have been placed there by the regime. … my 2c

  28. LUVfiji Says:

    @IB – sa vinaka na bula noqu Turaga Nite! Totoka na nomuni vakayatuyatu baleti rau na Raluve ni Viseisei vatakei Vuibau.

    But , are we not compiling a List of those who have sympathised with the regime in accepting illegal appointments? ‘Di Vara is a known strong supporter of this coup. Does it then make her right (and others wrong) by being who she is , and what she is professionally? What then is the difference in elevating , say , Aisake Taito to CEO FNPF from the Ministry of Finance where he has spent his entire career as an Economist? Ah yes , no praise for Taito because of who he is married to now. And for Vuibau? What about the man’s background? When and where was he last employed? Or , why was he dumped from his previous job? From what I know , his name already appears on a shame list of a top Suva-based organisation.

    No IB , damn.. put them on the List and Shame them!

  29. Jese Waqalekaleka Says:

    Good job SV and keep up the list, keeping in mind the comments if my Tau IslandBoy.

  30. IslandBoy Says:

    @LUVfiji – bula tale marama naita. At the risk of beating this subject to death, I don’t think the comparison between Aisake Taito and Di Vara is justified.

    Aisake went from being a line civil servant, after avoiding disciplinary action for his LA con attempt to a lucrative contract position in a stat body as the CEO.

    Di Vara has been a long-serving senior staff member of FITIB way back when and I understand from a friend on the diplomatic circuit that Taiwan asked Fiji to fill the position after it had been vacant for some time.

    By the same token, I don’t think Maria Matavewa for Laite Cavu should be on the list. I stand to be corrected but Maria has been a civil servant all her life and has served in many ministries.

    As I stated above, I count myself a good friend of Di Vara and would be very surprised indeed if she was a supporter of the coup. We often have a very frank exchange of views and she has never expressed any sympathy for the coup makers or their hangers on.

  31. IslandBoy Says:

    @Jese & Soro – thanks for the concurrence guys, Di Vara is a personal friend as I admitted but my real concern here is that we do not accuse people unfairly, especially if they have been working long and hard in their respective fields and justly deserve promotion or overseas assignments.

    @ Naita Dauvavana – di caracara sara tu ga qo na mati, bai reva na nodatou Ravouvou, segai beka ni gadi i vavalagi?

    E dua na turaga kitou visivi mai nai roro ni waqavuka mai tai levu ni kitou kele yani mai Hawaii, (3 weeks ago now) au dau segai tikoga ni kila na kedratou duidui na gone turaga veitacini mai Natewa.

    Island Boy – i agree with you about Adi Vara…she’s cool! I don’t think she supports this idiotic circus of a govt. we have.

    I shall copy and paste and send to the rest of the world this Wall of Shame!

    It shall be called Fiji’s Wall of Shame! This is so exciting!

    I shall add on a column of – relationship between post holder and Voreqe or any other minister eg. “Aisake Taito…recently divorced to re-marry Adi…….” and then we shall add on their qualifications, no. of years in the civil service if any, monetary gains (by how much their salary has jumped up since shaking hands with the devil)….

    Hi..hi…come no where Gossip Girl….

    It shall be in parts, Part I, Part II, Part III……

    Can someone come up with the list of all the atrocities committed by the people in this regime and just who committed them ?

    @LuvFiji … I have know Adi Francis for a very long time and she has never suported the coup perpertrators in all our long chats. What do you know that I don’t?

    As for Aisake Taito, I don’t know him at all so I can’t say.. sources tell me he is good at what he does and has never got on with Mahen Chaudary .. so maybe he too is a good civil servant .. who knows ?

    If he is indeed a sympathiser of the coup then he should be on that list.

    But if he is not, despite being married to a Mara who have all been lumped in the coup supporters basket, then he shouldnt rate.

    What I’m saying is that we have to be fair, as far as we can be.

    My eyesight ain’t the best at the moment – blinded by inadvertedly glimpsing a foto of the bleached blonde. But I can’t seem to see her in all her glory on the above list.
    She needs a star status billing, but perhaps she was missed – hiding horizontal under Frank somewhere
