FijiToday has been reliably informed that a 12 year old boy was caught painting crude comments about the PM on a bus shelter at Lami last night.
The two soldiers who caught him were in a white 4wd and had been seen circling the area for several hours before the reported event took place.
After having his face slapped for refusing to give his name the boy was hit in the head and then held on the ground while the second soldier broke three of his fingers. During this torture he gave his name and address.
He was kicked in the head and told to tell his parents that if the incident was reported the whole family will suffer a similar fate.
The parents did not report the incident.
The boy is of indo fijian decent and the a member of the extended family emailed FijiToday this report including a phone number and address. We contacted her and found the details of her story very convincing.
