You are invited to share and pen your ideas, views or opinions that will facilitate/assist our country back to democracy. All positive and/or negative ideas and comments to steer us back to the road of democracy are welcome.

Whichever way one looks at our current situation back home, democracy has been completely raped. The rape of democracy in Fiji is a virtual degradation of the populus of Fiji. Their human rights are being deprived:

1. the right to decide their government;
2. who they want to represent them;
3. their right to free assembly;
4. free protest;
5. free to organise into groups so that they can talk about what is pertinent to their daily lives;
6. protest on issues they do not agree with....with no fear of intimidation from anybody.

With this military regime in place, the concept of freedom per the Constitution is a total myth!

And, we, the people of Fiji need to come together and be vehement about our total disagreement with the military regime. So give us liberty or death! The reality of the issue is that democracy in Fiji has been raped...from top to bottom...left to right....inside and out and vice versa!

Here we have a military regime that talks about freedom to the people and yet the very same military regime randomly arrest people, torture them, inflict unnecessary harrassment and emotional stress to those that seem a threat to them. The military regime talks about racial unity.......the communal concept of togetherness and yet Fiji is far more racially divided today than it ever was.

The so-called advisors, viz-a-viz, John Samy, these are rejects from their adopted countries and yet they are being rewarded with exuberant amount(s) of money by these rogue military regime who have no idea what they are doing. Lying to the international community does not augur well with this interim government and yet the interim Prime Minister continuously talks with a forked tongue when addressing international issues. The ministers talk about internal securities as if Fiji is going to be invaded.

All around it is clearly seen that the economy is in tatters and the Constitution is just a useless piece of paper. The rule of law is as what the military regime wants it to be.

The above are just some of my views (from a pro-democracy viewpoint). But, do not let that deter you from penning your comments if you share otherwise.

So, let us come together and voice our views/comments, whether they be for or against the military regime and have a very healthy discussion here so that in the end we can factually understand what our role is, what we need to do and how we can come up with ideas to help restore democracy back in our beloved Fiji!

Please feel free to write what you like or dislike about the military regime. Be sincere and honest about your thoughts, without getting personal or spiteful.

Kindly note, this "topic" will expire as soon as we have an election.

FICAC itself is corrupted!!

Court to decide on Nemani's case

May 02, 2012 01:57:47 PMA+ A-||| 0 inShare   Follow @ Twitter

The High Court in Suva will decide whether the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption's case against former Fiji National Provident Fund deputy general manager Foana Nemani will continue.

Nemani was absent and unrepresented. She is believed to be residing in New Zealand where she has been receiving medical treatment since last February. In an earlier court sitting, FICAC had informed the court they had received a letter from Fiji Interpol stating that summons sent from Fiji had no legal effect in New Zealand and that attempts to serve the summons on Nemani’s siblings were unsuccessful.

FICAC lawyer Rashmi Aslam has made an application to have the case against Nemani heard despite her absence.

The application was heard before Justice Priyantha Fernando on Monday, and will be heard again tomorrow. Nemani was initially charged with one count each of extortion by a public officer and abuse of office.

Interesting and valid point SLR. I have heard about this as well over the years and a few incidents of exam papers being sold to students did hit the headlines. I recall an interview on Fiji TV1 with the then acting Dean of FSM David Bewster (he resigned soon after) and amongst other issues, he condemned the leakage of exam papers for FSM dentistry students. He looked really concerned at the level that certain staff had stooped to. For USP, it will be interesting to see the number and composition of students fronting up before the USP disciplinary committee for allegations of cheating during exams etc.
