Qarase, a man of integrity, Beddoes tells court
Thursday, August 02, 2012
FORMER opposition leader Mick Beddoes, the third character witness in the trial told the High Court in Suva yesterday that Laisenia Qarase was a man of integrity and honesty.
And though he frequently opposed policies brought up by Qarase's government, he said he had never heard or was told anything that would say that he was not a man of honesty and integrity.
"My role as the opposition leader was to keep government accountable for its work and I opposed Qarase on many of his policies. I also agreed where the policy was at the best interest of the people," Mr Beddoes said.
He said that Qarase served all communities and did not favour one community.
Mr Beddoes said there was no question about how hard Qarase worked for the people of Fiji, his actions were in the best interest and did not favour anyone.
He said he was not aware of or seen anything that Qarase did for self enrichment.
He told the court that Qarase was a peaceful man and Fiji needed him going forward.
"It is my view that Qarase remains not only the leader of the largest political party but I still consider him the prime minister of Fiji," he said.
Meanwhile, an affidavit was also presented by the Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa as she could not come to court because she had gone to Australia.

FORMER prime minister Laisenia Qarase was hailed as a man of respect and professionalism by Bau chief Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi.
A character witness in the case, the country's former vice president Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi said Qarase was always polite, respectful and professional.
He said when he was the vice-president from January 2005 to December 2006, he used to meet Qarase together with the president every fortnightly to relay matters of national interest.
"At all times, Qarase was polite, respectful and patient even if when they disagreed on some matters," Ratu Joni said.
He gave examples to the court of Qarase's involvement in the reconciliation, tolerance and promotion of Unity Bill, Qoliqoli bill and he always remained polite and engaged.
Ratu Joni said Qarase remained polite and professional even when they had differing views on the Reconciliation and Qoliqoli bills.
"Mr Qarase was the prime minister for the country for six years and was a public figure, secretary for the Public Service and managing director for Fiji Development Bank, which showed the character of the man," he said.
Ratu Joni also claimed that he saw Qarase's conviction as a humiliation to his reputation.
“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper;
And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.
Amen to that!
The Fiji nation and its people will always remember what you and your family have sacrificed and done. My family voted for you and never regretted it till to this day. Thank-you,vinaka and Faiak se’ea for everything.
God bless you & your family :)
