We shouldn’t be surprised by the quick release from prison and promotion of Voreqe Bainimaramas tavale (brother-in-law-&-illegal activities) Varanisese Senavanua, while the Nations attention was diverted towards the devastation the floods have created.
Before Fiji could take a breath of relief that the floods are over, we’re king hit by this news. No wonder the military and interim regime was so slow in responding to the catastrophe that has devastated our beautiful Island Nation, they were too busy organising the release of a convicted murderer.
While this news plus the clean up of the ruined properties and homes keeps us busy the interim regime has been busy writing nasty letters to the Chairman of Pacific Islands Forum Toke Talagi, the Premier of Niue:
“Since your appointment to the chairmanship,” he wrote, “you have neither communicated directly with me in any substantive manner on the Fiji situation, nor visited Fiji to determine for yourself the ground realities.
“This has resulted in your inability to speak rationally and independently on the punitive, discriminatory and inhumane travel sanctions imposed on the citizens of Fiji by two forum members — namely Australia and New Zealand.”
He said that the forum “is built on the spirit of genuine Pacific dialogue and engagement, not on ostracisation and isolation.
“Bullying and neo-colonialism do not feature in the Pacific way.”
Wow such big words from the ignorant self appointed, illegal prime minister – he’s actually talking about himself.
We must thank his spin meisters for writing this for Voreqe Bainimarama and telling him to sign it, then sending it without the fool knowing he is revealing his true evil, ignorant self to the whole world.
Well done Parmesh Chand and Aiyaz Khaiyum.
Voreqe is doing his damnedest to avoid going to the Leaders summit in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea on 27 January and all these diversionary tactics, murderous tavales release from prison, the letters to Talagi and the pretense that he is needed in Fiji to direct relief efforts (what? the relief funds into your own grubby hands!) are the first of a few more to have an excuse not to attend. What a coward.
