The Fiji military has yet to decide on the decommissioning if it’s former Land Force Commander Jone Baledrokadroka who recently spearheaded pro-democracy rallies in Australia.
Current Land Force Commander, Colonel Pita Driti, confirmed to FijiLive that Baledrokadroka had lodged an application for his formal resignation, which is with the Chief of Staff, Colonel Aziz Mohammed.
Beldrokadroka left the army following a disagreement with the military commander in early 2006 and was subsequently charged with insubordination and mutiny.
All supposed court martial charges were dropped in May, 2007 due to insufficient evidence; however, Colonel Driti maintains that his former superior will still be investigated by the military over the same allegations.
He said Military Commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will have the final say on the matter.
Baledrokadroka and eleven others were also arrested and charged in an alleged assassination plot against the interim Prime Minister, some of his Cabinet Ministers and army officers in November, 2007.
He was again cleared of all charges on December 24, 2008 due to insufficient evidence tendered by the Police and the Military.
Baledrokadroka, a former member of Fiji’s Great Council of Chiefs, is now a Fellow at the Australian National University.
Baledrokadroka reportedly addressed the Fiji Democracy Freedom Movement Rally in Canberra last Friday.
Similar rallies and marches have been organized for coming weeks in Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin and the United States.
WE PRO DEMOCRACY SUPPORTERS SAY:
Hey what’s to ponder P ig coupsters?
Ponder mada ga your extreme insignificance P ig coupsters to this Nation Fiji, the continuous corruption, utter lack of transparency and unprecedented lawlessness that the innocent citizens have had to endure since 5.12.06.
Baledrokadroka was found innocent in the Fiji court of law before the abrogation of the constitution and illegal sacking of the judiciary.
Regurgitating all that has been proven NOT GUILTY is absolute proof of the duplicity of the illegal regime and their own personal vendetta on imagined slights, anyone that dares to criticise or declines to follow their evil agenda,
The P ig coupsters can abrogate and break every rule in the book, it will not make the slightest difference to how the people of this Nation and the rest of the world view and feel about the illegal regime – with absolute disdain, not worth the driest denitoa on earth.
Go for your lives P ig coupsters, the conscience is the greatest leveller, no matter how ignorant you all are your consciences will destroy you all.
The P ig coupsters think they mock the Nation of Fiji and the rest of the world with the impostion of their self-rule and the rules they make up as they teeter along.
NO! the P ig coupsters mock themselves with their incredible lack of finesse in all fields of govenance, and immense conceit and deceit.
Get over yourselves P ig coupsters.
