Hotel owner not happy

Many bussinesses were affected by the flood.

FBC News has now discovered the source of some of the information given to New Zealand and Australian media about the recent floods.

It was the owner of a hotel in Nadi who was not happy with the lack of information, and action, when floods struck the hotel last week.

Mohammed Naseev who resides in New Zealand and has invested heavily in the tourism industry in Fiji claimed to FBC News this morning that his calls for help during the floods fell on deaf ears.

Naseev owns the Hibiscus Pacific Resort in Nadi, a 200 room resort which was 60% damaged.

He claims he called the police and the fire authority all day Friday, but was told there was no boat available to rescue his guests.

Naseev claims there were 15 tourists in his hotel at the time and all would have perished if it was not for some i Taukei from a village nearby that came to their rescue and took them to the safety of the nearby Digicel Building.

Naseev says he has invested $44m in the business and he was disappointed with the Minister for Tourism who told the world that everything was fine in Fiji when no one came to his resort to see the damage done.

To add to his disappointment, Naseev claims, ‘til now there’s still no water or electricity at the resort, and no offers of assistance.

Naseev said he was frustrated that no one in Fiji came to his assistance despite the calls he made on the day of the floods so he rang media in New Zealand and Australia and told them of the severe effects of the disaster.

Earlier this week Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, was critical of those whom he said had spread exaggerated stories about the floods in overseas media.

Ministry of Tourism Permanent Secretary Elizabeth Powell says Naseev’s resort is near a flood prone area and they would have required considerable assistance during the height of the floods.

Powell says its unfortunate he decided to call the Australian and New Zealand media instead of calling organisations like DISMAC for assistance.

  1. Police and all those others associated with civil law and order in Fiji are making a mockery of justice, law and order there. Fiji is the only place I have been where people renting do not have ‘right of domicile’. When I called police for help, they threatend to arrest me. My Fiji ‘vacation’ was the worst experience of my life. I spread the word…

  2. Typical of this regime with Powell trying to divert blame towards the victim in this case. The guy was calling Police and Fire authorities all day long and she says he should have called DISMAc….was that communicated to the general public?? To call DISMAC? Ask around and there will be no one who can tell what the DISMAC number is but everybody know the number for emergency services which would be the logical number to call when there is an emergency. What a moronic comment by Powell.

  3. Powell or Khaiyum have not gotten off their fat arses to have a look first hand. Powell is just as much a spin doctor as SSJ. Should piss off back to the US where she claims to have been doing very well.

  4. naseeb forgot to tell the overseas media that he did not paid his workers before he left for nz. whether he is coming back or not the story of investing $44m was totally a load of shits as the bank was already on the verge of taking over the property before the flood.

  5. naseeb should have known that was a flood prone area before leasing stop crying over spill milk
    all your fault and stop blaming others

    post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design),

    time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the superb work.

    Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog and in depth information
    you offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the
    same outdated rehashed information. Excellent read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google

    Hey there! I’ve been following your website for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Porter Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the good work!
    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with?
    I’m having some minor security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any recommendations?
    Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a awesome job
    with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?

    My blog is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from some of the information
    you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
    Appreciate it!
    Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!
    Very good site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of
    any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!
    Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics? Thank you so much!
    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are looking to swap methods with others, please shoot me an email if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your weblog.

    You have some really great articles and I believe I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested. Thanks!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its field. Very good blog!
    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot
    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks
    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help
    stop content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
    Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.
    Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I’m
    definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Exceptional blog and fantastic design and style.
    Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Kudos!
    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.

    I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this superb blog!
    I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your blog
    on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m
    shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, amazing site!
    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
    Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on
    your blog?
    Wonderful post however , I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more. Thanks!
    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same
    blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!
    Hi! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!
    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of
    Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any
    support is very much appreciated.
    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!

    Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m
    absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against
    hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine
    Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Cheers!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
