People deserve more

THE President, Ratu Josefa Iloilo, has endorsed the People’s Charter proposed by the interim regime as the way forward for our beloved nation.This is a document which Voreqe Bainimarama and his supporters would have us believe has been accepted by more than 62 per cent of the people approached to give their views.

Our people have been approached and prevailed upon to give instant answers.

This has been done in the presence of police officers with ordinary citizens told that they are compelled to sign the forms provided by the National Council for Building a Better Fiji.

In some cases civil servants have been herded together in groups and lectured on the charter.

These lectures have been followed by admonitions to sign the attached forms in support of the junta’s solution to all our political problems.

It is based upon this that the regime would have us believe that the majority of the nation supports the charter. What civil servant under such pressure would not agree to sign a document in union with Bainimarama’s plans? Now the interim administration has played its trump card – the Office of the President.

By soliciting the President’s approval, Bainimarama and his advisers believe that the people will submit to their demands.

We have said before and reiterate today – this administration, brought to power and supported by the army, can do anything it wishes and promulgate any law which it desires to implement.

It has the power to do so.

Why, then, must it seek the Office of the President or a charter supposedly backed by the people to legitimise its rule? The true test of its popularity will only be seen when the people – as is their right – once again have the ability to elect their legal representatives.

No amount of force, no suppression of the rights of the individual will ever legitimise the removal of an elected government. The fact that the President has endorsed the charter will not change the status quo for the people of this nation.

They remain governed by an unelected government enforced upon them by military might.

We dare tell the interim administration that the day of reckoning is not yet upon us and that the people will have their say. That day may be next year or in 2011 or some other time in the future.

But when that day comes the voice of the people will be strong and it will be unequivocal.

This country deserves more than an unelected regime which will stop at nothing to enforce its whims upon the people.

    It is very encouraging and comforting to know that FT is sticking by their guns and still fighting for deomcracy and not buying into the bull crap these culprits in the ig keeps spouting out. Its easy to fall into the trap of opoortunism that so many have fallen into like the chiefs recently at the BNT and a couple of media companies who prostitue themselves for the money and prominence the ig will endow. Ft well done for maintain your stance and keep uphold the truth for Fiji.

    By Michael Field

    Fiji is now the complete banana republic.

    These are the people who made it; Voreqe Bainimarama, Anthony Gates, John Byrne, Davendra Pathik, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and the assorted peon who submitted extravagant invoices in a mosquito like fashion as they feed on the body corpus that is Fiji today.

    Many will, of course, see in the Fiji High Court, in the case of Qarase and Others v Bainimarama and Others, file HBC60.07S, all the evidence of corruption they need. I have no idea whether the assorted shallow characters are corrupt. What I do see, though, is complete intellectual poverty, self-interest and a kind of idiocy that only Suva can provide.

    Gates – for it was he who wrote the judgment as the others were too limp to say otherwise – began his judgment thus: “This case is about the lawfulness or otherwise of certain acts carried out by the President following military intervention in the government of the State.”

    No, it was not. It was about the morality of armed men on the streets intimidating citizens and democrats. Gates, by defining the argument in the way he has, has ensured that forever his name will be associated with self-serving intellectual poverty.

    His judgment will only be cited in the same way as rulings of the Zimbabwe High Court are cited; as examples, not of corruption, but of the way that otherwise good men fall silent, out of self interest, when faced with evil.

    This was not a miscarriage of justice at all; it was not justice at all. It never left the platform in the first place. Sadly, every individual whose name is on the paperwork is compromised by there failing to honour greater truths.

    They all played a game.

    So, let us wend our way through this document, doomed to obscurity; un-cited, unnoticed, a national embarrassment for Fiji. No one, least of all the characters who have stained their name on it, will be mentioning it on their CVs.

    The essence of Qarase and Others v Bainimarama and Others is the need to ignore reality and create an entirely false argument. That tort is the existence, or otherwise, of the notion of “reserve powers”, that the president has some kind of power, greater than that expressed in the constitution, to control Fiji.

    We are all tediously familiar with the belief, so often expressed, that Fiji is special, different, that no other place quite exists in the same way. Of course, this is fantasy. Gates, ill-read and plainly not much of a man of the world, fails in the entire judgment to note that all this has been argued before. Not in obscure citations he uses Wikipedia to adduce, but in real life. In Australia in 1975 when the often pickled Governor-General John Kerr dismissed Labor Prime Minster Gough Whitlam.

    Except in this case no one suggests that Fiji President Josefa Iloilo is a drunk. Far from it; he is worse. He is mentally incompetent and has been for years. It is not that he is stupid; in his day, he was a rather average schoolteacher. However, for at least a decade simple clinical conditions have rendered his brain inoperable. He should be in a home for the distressed elderly. Instead, Bainimarama has turned him into a ventriloquist’s prop.

    Gates, writing of reserve powers, is ignoring this reality. Iloilo no more “exercised” his reserve powers than he flew to the Moon. A coward who ran away from gunfire in 2000, and now, in his flailing years wants to prove his manhood usurped his reserve powers.

    For a moment, let us touch on the character of Anthony Gates, who fills the shoes and claims the salary of his superior who was frogmarched from office by the military guns. Gates, no doubt, is comforted in his moral insecurity by his salary.

    As I said before, let us note that there is no evidence that Gates is corrupt.

    But Fiji’s Court of Appeal did find that he was incompetent and biased in the cast of Ratu Inoke Takiveikata. Gates put him in jail for life after convicting him for mutiny. The Court of Appeal found that it was a stitch up job; that Gates had not only lied but that at a wine armed night at the French Embassy in 2004 he had told a couple, Donald and Margaretha Brodie, that he would “put him away”. He had not even held the trial.

    So it is perhaps no surprise that this sad man had sung the tune the money man paid for on this occasion.

    Gates was brave once, in the case of Chandrika Prasad in 2001 in the wash up of George Speight’s coup.

    Gates quotes himself a lot in the latest judgment; the ultimate vanity of a pretender. In Fiji and Ano. V Prasad it was found that the Fiji Constitution was intact because the “revolution” that was Speight had failed. What he was saying there was that the winner gets to write the rules. His latest judgment is consistent with that.

    Which is why he is doomed to being seen now as an errant judge of no consequence.

    In addition, we shall ignore the arrogant vanity of a man who insists on quoting himself back at us all.

    At paragraph [6] the judgment says “courts do not make pronouncements on matters of current national interest as the moment takes them”. They wait instead for some one to file a complaint, in this case deposed Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase.

    “In this case as shall be seen later, the nature of the respective cases and the relevant issues appeared to shift.”

    It is an interesting observation; Gates admits quite early on that he lost control of his own court.

    He takes his steer from Bainimarama’s QC Gerard McCoy who, according to the judgment “conceded the court was not concerned with whether there was moral, military or philosophical imperative for such action”.

    Taken as a point of law this is true; taken as life, as right-v-wrong, this is a tragedy.

    “The court has not been asked to approve the acts of the military in taking over the executive, in removing the Prime Minister and the Cabinet, or in ordering the dissolution of Parliament. These were not the matters litigated in this case.”

    Gates, and the shallow souls who sat beside him, are right on this. One must question though Qarase and his lawyers; what were they thinking? They launched a half-baked, hopeless and doomed lawsuit. And his lawyers probably still want to be paid for it.

    The judgment, under “History of the Proceedings”, recounts the behaviour of minnows that flitted in and out of the whole thing. One can see here where the case fell apart.

    Justice is as much about process as it is about outcome; Fiji, being a banana republic, completely failed in the former with a parade of hopeless lawyers. People could not seem to show up on time, they wondered around with files and affidavits and just simply screwed up. One can only hope the Fiji Law Society will go though this section of the judgment and send all and sundry back to law school for a refresher course or two.

    Gates then deals with what he gloriously calls “Background facts”. They are most certainly not facts as any reasonable person would see them as.

    At [31] he writes (let us excuse the fiction, at this point that Byrne and Pathik did any work, they were their merely to make up the horsehair dummy line up): “The court was not presented with a set of agreed facts.”

    Surely, to any judge, this would have set alarm bells off.

    One noted fact is made little of; that in May 2006 Qarase was appointed prime minister following a democratic election.

    He notes, at [34], that “for the previous 18 months or so onwards prior to 5th December 2006 the military and the government of the day were descending into a relationship of increasing ill will and conflict.”

    This is described in the fashion of the trade winds; no mention is made of the criminal nature of this ill will. No mention is made of the insubordination and threats that Bainimarama, backed up with his guns, made.

    Gates quotes, with approval by the fact that he put it in his judgment without counter-opinion, that then Police Commissioner Andrew Hughes was “the front of the Australian Government in its ground strategy of neo-colonialism, weakening the RFMF and (had) the potential to cause instability in Fiji.”

    It is embarrassing to see a Fiji judge give credence to all this; it sinks his intellectual credibility as surely as an iceberg did in Titanic.

    Gates put lots of this into the judgment; giving it credibility that Bainimarama’s little Officer Corps could not have dream of. This is WMD stuff, Iraq-style, except the “Acting” Chief Justice does not realise he is being duped. Fool me once, shame on you; dupe me twice, shame on me.
    In these “background facts”, Gates writes of a moment on Monday 4th December 2006 when Qarase tried to see Iloilo.

    “Eventually he came away from the front gates of Government House without seeing him. On the Prime Minister’s view he was treated discourteously by the soldiers on duty.”

    That is all that Gates says about it. Like some private soldier had his fly open or something. Gates does not know – or wilfully ignores – the fact that Bainimarama had men with guns stopping any one from seeing the degenerate Iloilo.

    The most extraordinary part of the judgment is the way Gates leaps from this across two days, so that at [49] he says that by ”the morning of Tuesday 5th December 2006 the RFMF had taken control of the streets”.

    The streets were never out of control. They were mostly peaceful. Indeed, completely unmentioned in all this, is the way in which he fails to mention the way Bainimarama terrorised Suva by having his soldiers marching, fully armed, through the streets and firing mortars into the harbour.

    At this point, the judgment is a farce.

    It is not corrupt; I would not suggest Gates was bought at all. He did not need to be. By ignoring what happened, he served the military’s purposes completely.

    Its not corruption; its stupidity.

    The judgment does not say Bainimarama staged a coup at all; there was no coup in Gates’ mind. He even manages to note that Bainimarama said he was “stepping into the President’s shoes” without recognising what that actually meant. Yes, he appointed dopy old Dr Jona Senilagakali as prime minister (am I the only one to notice how the aged people of Fiji so badly betray it all the time – what is it with them?) but to Gates it’s a kind of non-event along the way.

    The judgment explores all the ins and outs of Bainimarama’s statements. It makes no mention – not one – to the way in which the RFMF was out in the streets threatening people with guns, beating up some, killing others. Some bloodless coup. Except, in Gates’ eyes, it was not a coup at all.

    Alternatively, if it was a coup, then it was a legal one. And the next coup can be legalised by following the script written out by Anthony Gates.

    We can call them Gates’ Coups.

    As is now so tediously known in Fiji, the court then did the textbook exploration of common law to find out things to justify its wonky ruling. Quite why the shabby world of Bainimarama has to be washed in Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights is beyond me.

    Gates’ intellectual slackness is seen in the way he justifies Iloilo’s behaviour by referring to Bhagat Singh v The King-Emperor completely out of context. Singh, who was hanged, was fighting for freedom and independence of India – not for the right of military to run Fiji. He does it again with Ooi Kee Saik, a Malaysian doctor silenced by tyranny. Yes, the law is a game of precedent, but do they not imagine that behind these case studies are real people, real issues?

    Ultimately Gates justifies Iloilo’s actions (such as they were – most of the actual work was done by Bainimarama’s minions) but quoting Burmah Oil Company Ltd. v Lord Advocate. To the limited thinking of Gates, context does not matter.

    This involved an oil company suing Britain for blowing up its oil instillations in Burma during World War II so that they would not fall into the hands of the Japanese. As it happened, I knew well the very man who blew them up. The court – and in the end the House of Lords – justified it.

    And thus, showing his own intellectual poverty, Gates is incapable of original though and resorts to a situation of no relevance to Fiji.

    No wonder Fiji’s courts are held in contempt.

    (It is amusing to note that Sayed-Khaiyum and Gates believe that on the strength of all this silly work that Wellington and Canberra should now immediately lift sanctions and recognise the legality of what is happening; this believe shows just how detached they are from reality).

    The rest of the precedent cases cited by Gates matter little. It’s all like footnoting a school essay. Looks good, but we all know you used Wikipedia. After all Mistress Wikipedia was a Friend of the Court.

    Its quite amusing, if you read [126] it will be seen that Miss Wikipedia’s one contribution to the court is dismissed as having no relevance to the case. Of course, she remains on the payroll, even if she still has not published her much joked about Wikipedia and Stolen Email ruling (which we have anyway).

    The judgment notes Qarase’s evidence in court and the tortured dealings about whether he asked Australia and New Zealand to invade Fiji. As there was never any chance that they would – why should the blood of my children be given to save Fiji from its idiocy? – it all hardly matters.

    “In cross-examination Mr Qarase agreed a foreign invasion would have been disastrous and a matter of grave national security,” writes Gates.

    Don’t you think, old chap, that Canberra and Wellington had already figured that one out?

    That Qarase asked about his pension is regarded as significant.

    “No doubt this line of questioning went to the issue of acquiescence and waiver about which we were addressed by all counsel in closing addresses.”

    What an astonishing thing to say; that a solitary individual, under duress and internal exile, can make rational judgments? And for that matter, what about duress that was so big in Prasad?

    Gates sums it all up by stealing Harry Truman’s buck stopping logo.

    “If the ship’s cargo must be cast overboard in order that the ship might make it through the storm to safety and all lives be spared, so be it. Those who throw away the cargo can say they acted in extremis, and be excused from blame for the loss.”

    That is true; but the only storm in December 2006 was that created by the man who was the beneficiary of it. Bainimarama.

    In the section on whether the president intended to exercise his prerogative (interesting, they did not adduce any evidence of his competence) Gates said it was not necessary to travel across all the matters involved. Of course, and that is why the summary of facts Gates gave is so favourable to the military.

    “The history of the nation with its four coups, the ultimatums and the disputes between the Qarase government and the military, the constant state of strife, the presence of Australian warships in Fiji waters, and the occurrence of the military takeover a month previous, all would have forced the President’s hand to use such powers.”

    The Australian warships were no threat to Fiji; as is now well known, they were only a threat to themselves.

    No, what is intriguing though in Gates line is this: “The history of the nation with its four coups…”

    So December 6, 2004, was a coup? Yes. Gates says it is, unless he is using a different counting system. And as it was a coup, then surely every thing that followed was illegal. Surely? One senses, deep in the lines here, that Gates has a shaky conscience. He knows he is getting it wrong.

    There is another strange, moment in the judgment too in which Gates notes that since the coup a census has been held: “We take notice of the significant demographic changes brought to light from that survey which are likely to effect a permanent and growing dominance of the Parliament by the indigenous.”

    What a terrible thing to say Gates; that democracy is going to ultimately rule. That the majority might get their way?

    At [157] ; “No-one has suggested His Excellency failed to act honestly, impartially, neutrally and in what he gauged was in the best interests of the nation, that is, of all of the inhabitants of Fiji.”

    That is a case of asking the wrong question. The real question is whether Iloilo was capable at all. Of anything.

    Gates says (without actual evidence) that Iloilo believed Fiji was in a grave crisis.

    “A military intervention had already occurred at the end of a long tunnel of civil strife. If he returned the nation to the status quo ante what might have been the result? We do not have the various intelligence and political assessments before us which might have been available to His Excellency.”

    So why did not Gates order the assessments before him, so that he could see what was going on?

    Well, perhaps like that cocktail at the French Embassy, he had already decided.

    And he gives Iloilo power and competence and the ability to act which any ordinary person, witnessing his vegetative state, knows not to be true.

    The judgment rambles along, at several points again Gates quotes Gates to justify Gates.

    It all boils down to this: “The President’s actions at the relevant time were valid and are held to be lawful.”

    Well, if you believe that, you’ll believe anything.

    And the indigenous? They played by the judicial and constitutional rules and a white judge on a big salary failed them. What they do next will not have a lot to do with that kind….

    Fiji is doomed to be a sad little sideshow and Gates will not even be a footnote in it.

    Hear! hear! FT

    Our hearts may be broken but our hopes will always be intact. Our freedom may not come soon BUT it will come…even if we won’t witness it in our lifetime, our children and their children will.

    And when that time comes, my one and only wish that the FIJI NAVY and the FIJI MILITARY be downsized or ABOLISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And the FIJI POLICE will have to be REDEFINED/RESTRUCTURED!!!!!!

  5. Wini Says:

    @ enufdictatorship

    whether the military will allow themselves to be downsized or abolished is an important bridge we have to cross. I suspect the coup virus or cancer introduced by Rambo in 1987 will remain for us for a long, long time. History will not be kind to Rabuka. He will get his just reward in due course….

    PS. I note that the Fiji Times not running his articles every week with his signature sign off “Have a Blessed Sunday” …what a bloody relief that the FT have finally scrapped that. We are more inspired by the weather report!

    I am new to this site but am liking it very much even if every now and again we have some dickheads trying to spoil it for us.

  7. Keep The Faith Says:

    What a total and utter failure of the Presidential office.

    If Frank thinks the President is his trump card he better pray hard that his trump card doesn’t get called up to the blue yonder soon. Because then he’s out of puppets to manipulate.

    Even IF Frank or one of his cronies were to step up to the presidential mantle, his IIG would never gain popular support. He knows this, and we know this and that’s why he will continue to waste money on validating all his idea’s.

    The final bell will sound when he abrogates the constitution and he has to before he can even try to take out a comma out from the blue book. He knows this, and we know this.

    What else have you got for us Frank? Everyone in this country and the international community is already 100 steps ahead of all your pathetic attempts at strategy.

  8. FijiGirl Says:

    Well, Vore and M’Chodo THINK that they have achieved yet another milestone in their grand plan to devastate this country.
    The Charter was always going to be a fait accomplis for them.
    Why the President continues to allow himself to be used as a puppet is anyone’s guess.
    So what next for the un-great pretenders?
    Watch while Chodo continues his behind-the-scenes tactics to stuff the ballot boxes with fake votes for him (whenever elections are finally held).
    Perhaps one silver lining in this big black cloud – at least we are closer to elections.
    Chodo and Vore will try every trick in the book to rig the elections.
    We must use every trick we have to prevent them from succeeding.
    The next elections MUST bring in a free, democratic government who will abolish the military once and for all.
    Thank you SV for keeping the faith alive and helping us work towards OUR vision – of Freedom, Democracy and the Rule of Law.
    The bastards might have ‘won’ that battle. But we will win the war.
    God bless Fiji

  9. church mouse Says:

    How can anyone in their right mind read the ‘charter’ in two days and say okay, it’s fine! Eighty pages in English, surely more pages in Fijian. It is absurd.

  10. Mark Manning Says:

    Chaudhry can’t contest the next elections because he was associated with the regime , Frank made that clear in 2007 when he said no one associated with the I.G. can contest the next elections .
    The President is either demented or a traitor , it has to be one or the other .
    If he is demented , then that would mean all his actions could be challenged in a Court of Law , at some point in time and that those taking advantage of his dementia , are answerable to that same Court of Law in the future , if not now !
    I remember in the May elections of 2006 , Chaudhry accused Mr. Qarase of interfering with ballot boxes while they were either en route to the election Office for counting or when they were left unguarded in some shed in the village !
    Chaudhry was unable to prove his claim of course , but he managed to fool enough people and create some doubt , though generally speaking ,it seemed that most knew he was not telling the truth .
    At that election , it was incredible how paranoid the soldiers were , especially at the roadblocks !

  11. Nostradamus Says:

    What Frank says means nothing. It only means he want something at one point in time. He will change is tune the next day if it suits him. Same with Chaudhry. Chaudhry will run in the next election unless someone shoots him. If outright lying bothers him, he will just invent some excuse for the lie. That is the story of their lives. Governance, multi-racialism, these are just code words for taking power. They have no inherent meaning to these people, as demonstrated by their long history and who they suck for support.

  12. FijiGirl Says:

    Take the UN Ban Further
    Back when Fiji first made it onto the maps of the Western world, ships would stop by and barter for food, spices and resources in exchange for knickknacks of varying value, from muskets to smoky mirrors. Later on, enterprising and less-than-honest travellers would barter similar items, this time for land, precious minerals (not too many to be found, before mining) and labour. The story of Musket Cove is that it got its name because the Chief was convinced to swap the land in exchange for a single musket.

    These stories show how our forebears, raised under communal ownership, didn’t really understand the value of what they were bargaining for, or what they were giving up. Had they truly understood that the ships crews were on the brink of starvation and scurvy, and had they been less hospitable, they would have been able to drive a far harder bargain for the fresh mangoes, bananas, uto, ivi, nama and native produce without which the sailors would have perished before they reached Tonga. But, as we know from our history, our forebears were not the greatest negotiators.

    And now, our President, Ratu Joseva Iloilo, the man with the highest powers in the land, the ‘here’ at which the proverbial buck stops, has carried on the great tradition by showing to all and sundry what hopeless negotiators Fijians can be.

    I am not writing this piece to criticise the President. There are others, far more worthy than I, to criticise him, and may the arrows of their comment be far more significant to him than anything I could write.

    Not only is the President lacking in negotiation skills. Frank Bainimarama, the hothead who has crowned himself Prime Minister and Finance Minister in perpetuity, must be one of the worst negotiators ever to walk the face of this planet.

    The way in which he came to power (goaded by Chodo), has retained power (guided by Chodo) and remains in power (in spite of Chodo) clearly demonstrates the path of a man who does not know how to give and take, consider options, evaluate, nurture or walk away. In short, demonstrates the path of a man who cannot, for the life of him, negotiate.

    Now he has bullied the President with Chodo’s Charter.

    This farcical endorsement by the President of the NCBBF Charter bears all the hallmarks of Vore’s regime to date.

    Like Vore’s build up to the last coup-d’etat, it is based on lies, bluster and a lot of hot air. Like the coup itself, it has no basis in reality or grassroots movement.

    Like the regime, it has no basis in the rule of law, remains illegitimate and will fall like the house of cards it is, when that moment inevitably comes and the rug is pulled from beneath Vore & Chodo’s feet, because what goes around will always come around.

    The time has come for the rug to be pulled, really pulled, from under their feet.

    A good negotiator knows how to construct a deal where all parties get some benefit. A good negotiator knows when to encourage, cajole, rally, back off and challenge. A good negotiator knows the true value of what it is he is offering up, and what he will accept in return. A good negotiator knows when to walk away. If you can’t walk away from a deal, you can’t negotiate.

    Since Vore can’t negotiate anyway, we know that he can’t walk away. What is the one thing that Vore cannot do without? The loyalty of the soldiers. Why do his men support him? Some do it because they are uneducated, some because they have no other career choice, some because they believe in his cause, some because they follow the herd. But most of all, they are loyal to him because the military puts food on the table for them and their families. What if that rug were to be pulled out from under Frank’s feet?

    I urge all those who would see democracy return to Fiji to contact the United Nations and implore them to extend the ban on Fiji soldiers for peacekeeping duties. Currently, the UN will not deploy Fiji’s soldiers to new assignments. Let the sanctions should go further. They should ban Fiji’s military from ANY UN assignments. Starve Vore and the Chodopu$$ of the money they (and their mistresses) crave so hungrily. Ban Fiji’s military from all UN duties until after free and fair elections.

    The EU, God bless them, is standing by their sugar sanctions. So are Aus, NZ, Canada and the USA. We all know that India, China and Korea are too craven to forego cheap, unsustainable resources that Vore is so happily swapping for smoky mirrors and muskets.

    God bless Fiji

    Sorry guys, change is here, more educated Fijians have come on the political,economic and social scenes; and they are begining to asked questions?
    We feel betrayed by you all in the IG you took away our freedom to choose,our freedom to live, our freedom to make decession on how we want to be governed?
