Police and Military Intelligence to start investigation into assets and liabilities of Politicians? Only in Viti.

No comments on party declarations-AG

Publish date/time: 21/06/2013

The government will not make any comments on many officials of the three registered political parties not providing financial information of their children and some not giving a breakdown of their assets and sources of income.

Some of the party officials have stated in their declaration of assets and liabilities that their children are over 18 years old and financially independent.

Fijivillage questioned Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum the definition of children in the Political Parties Decree.

We also asked him about the sources of income and breakdown of assets not provided by some party officials.

Sayed-Khaiyum said there is a due process to be followed under the Political Parties Decree.

He said it would not be prudent to make any comments on this matter at this stage.

The registered officer of the Fiji Labour Party, Mahendra Chaudhry has refused to make any comments on the declarations he made on his assets and liabilities.

Chaudhry said he has complied with the requirements when Fijivillage asked him about the breakdown of his total assets amounting to $3.8 million.

He refused to comment further.

Meanwhile, National Federation Party President, Raman Pratap Singh responded that their party officials did not declare assets and liabilities of their children as they are over 18 years.

SODELPA is yet to comment.

According to the Registration of Political Parties Decree, any official or applicant should provide a statement containing their total assets whether in Fiji or abroad, the total income in Fiji or abroad and the source of such income, any business connections, any directorships, any gifts received, any assets acquired by each of them whether in Fiji or abroad during the period to which the statement relates and the liabilities incurred or discharged by each of them.

This includes their spouses and children according to the decree.

According to the declarations, the registered officer of the Fiji Labour Party, Mahendra Chaudhry has total assets amounting to $3.8 million while his wife Hannah Virmati has $78,000.

They say their children are above 18 years and financially independent.

The Chaudhrys declaration also said that they do not have the financial information of their children and they are unable to provide that.

Others who have provided declarations in the FLP include Lavenia Padarath, Sachida Nand Sharma, David and Eleanor Eyre, Monica Raghwan, Kini Maraiwai, Surendra Lal and Udit Narayan.

Officials and applicants of the Social Democratic Liberal Party or SODELPA have also made their declarations.

Ro Teimumu Kepa of SODELPA has listed her net assets at $291,000 which includes $1,000 cash at bank, $250,000 for land and building and $40,000 for motor vehicle.

Many of the officials have only provided information on their spouses and not their children.

SODELPA official, Ratu Isikeli Komaisavai has signed the declarations however the financial information details are blank.

Others who have provided declarations for SODELPA are Pio Tabaiwalu, Timoci Bulitavu, Isoa Kamarusi, Nanise Kinivuwai, Vilimone Soqeta, Ratu Silivenusi Tabakaucoro, Lote Yavuca and Ruci Karuru.

The National Federation Party’s Raman Pratap Singh, Virendra Singh, Jag Nadan, Dhani Ram, Mohammed Rafiq, Vishwa Nadan and Dalip Kumar have also made their declarations.

They have provided a breakdown of their assets, income and liabilities but the financial information of their children is not included in the declaration.

Registrar of Political Parties, Mohammed Saneem said he will now verify the published particulars of the Fiji Labour Party, the National Federation Party and SODELPA for compliance with the Political Parties Decree.

Any member of the public who believes that the particulars provided are incorrect can contact Saneem.

  1. saneem declare how many sisters you have teri maichood. that will assist me to arrange fijian Buffalo’s.

  2. what a joke, and these politicians are so hard up for power that they dance along to the regimes tune…gutless lot.

  3. What these parties have yet to understand is that free and fair elections are simply not feasible for Khaiyum and his goons. There will be a multi-pronged attack on everyone and everything that looks like opposition: Firstly, there is the party decree. It essentially allows to eliminate any politician. Remember, you cannot challenge the regimes decisions in any court. So twenty undeclared dollars of the son in Auckland will do to prosecute and eliminate. Then there is media decree. The only party that will have access to full media coverage is Khaiyums. And they will hammer the electorate with stories about their achievements and their election presents. Third there are the election observers from PNG. They will ensure that Khaiyum’s party wins hands down. Now some may say it is conceivable that despite all this the popularity of SODELPA and Labour will prevail and they will win. Well, in this case the RFMF goons have made it abundantly clear that they have no choice should such a scenario become reality: They will step in and ensure that Khaiyum’s rule continues.

  4. To. the. people of. Fiji after. 7years, bai is worth $50m,kai is worth. $500m,bai na ulukau ga. na ulukau

  5. After. 7years bai is worth $50m, kai is worth $500m,bai na ulukau ga na ulukau

  6. the next step is I will prosecute and jail those who are unable to prove that their declarations are accurate.

  7. yes ratu, kai india always smarter than kai viti…did u not notice the old ads on mpaisa?…the kaivits only collecting grey $10 notes and the kaiindia collecting those brand new yellow $100 notes???
    so I think your calcualtions is spot on.

  8. This low morality and cheating will be imported to Fiji culture if Bainimarama is allowed to continue with his wholesale encouragement of Chinese into Fiji ie Students Riot When stoped to Cheat In Exams:

    By Malcolm Moore, Beijing
    3:25PM BST 20 Jun 2013
    The relatively small city of Zhongxiang in Hubei province has always performed suspiciously well in China’s notoriously tough “gaokao” exams, each year winning a disproportionate number of places at the country’s elite universities.
    Last year, the city received a slap on the wrist from the province’s Education department after it discovered 99 identical papers in one subject. Forty five examiners were “harshly criticised” for allowing cheats to prosper.
    So this year, a new pilot scheme was introduced to strictly enforce the rules.
    When students at the No. 3 high school in Zhongxiang arrived to sit their exams earlier this month, they were dismayed to find they would be supervised not by their own teachers, but by 54 external invigilators randomly drafted in from different schools across the county.
    The invigilators wasted no time in using metal detectors to relieve students of their mobile phones and secret transmitters, some of them designed to look like pencil erasers.
    A special team of female invigilators was on hand to intimately search female examinees, according to the Southern Weekend newspaper.
    Outside the school, meanwhile, a squad of officials patrolled the area to catch people transmitting answers to the examinees. At least two groups were caught trying to communicate with students from a hotel opposite the school gates.
    For the students, and for their assembled parents waiting outside the school gates to pick them up afterwards, the new rules were an infringement too far.
    As soon as the exams finished, a mob swarmed into the school in protest.
    “I picked up my son at midday [from his exam]. He started crying. I asked him what was up and he said a teacher had frisked his body and taken his mobile phone from his underwear. I was furious and I asked him if he could identify the teacher. I said we should go back and find him,” one of the protesting fathers, named as Mr Yin, said to the police later.
    By late afternoon, the invigilators were trapped in a set of school offices, as groups of students pelted the windows with rocks. Outside, an angry mob of more than 2,000 people had gathered to vent its rage, smashing cars and chanting: “We want fairness. There is no fairness if you do not let us cheat.”
    According to the protesters, cheating is endemic in China, so being forced to sit the exams without help put their children at a disadvantage.
    Teachers trapped in the school took to the internet to call for help. “We are trapped in the exam hall,” wrote Kang Yanhong, one of the invigilators, on a Chinese messaging service. “Students are smashing things and trying to break in,” she said.
    Another of the external invigilators, named Li Yong, was punched in the nose by an angry father. Mr Li had confiscated a mobile phone from his son and then refused a bribe to return the handset.
    “I hoped my son would do well in the exams. This supervisor affected his performance, so I was angry,” the man, named Zhao, explained to the police later.
    Hundreds of police eventually cordoned off the school and the local government conceded that “exam supervision had been too strict and some students did not take it well”.

  9. This is a very good move as it allows the people and voters of Fiji to know who they are voting for, what are their financial worth?

    And the days of politicians fooling the voters in Fiji are over under King Voreqe Bainimarama. All declarations by Fiji politicians will be fully scrutinised and those found to be fooling the voters will be put behind bars for false declaration with the intend to fool the voters of Fiji.

    In the name of transparency and accountability to the voters and people of Fiji this is a very encouraging move.

    In 2014, we start from honest politicians who declare their net worth honestly, who I suppose will work in the interest of the nation and not in their own personal racists interests as seen in the past.

  10. I am sure many voters and citizens of our beautiful Fiji Islands would like to know the truth – the true wealth of our politicians.

    Vinaka current government for bringing in transparency in the political dynamics of Fiji.

  11. am eagerly waiting for bainimarama to declare his assets, etc.. and that of his silly wife and demented daughters, and bavulu son.

  12. my declared assets will be like this…assets Nil, cash Nil, debts 7billion, power = Absolutely.

  13. what is Khayium’s salary & asset before and after 2006.

    The biggest thug in Fiji.

    He has made his entire community rich since 2006.

    Kaiviti cannot do anything to Taliban.

    Only big talk.

  14. The military and police should stand up like real men and arrest the dictator Bainimarama. Naivalurua you don’t have the balls anymore you bloody sucker. Where are the moral values you always emphasise to your officers. Bloody bulshiit hypocrite.

  15. Methinks Adios Amigo should act like a real man and organise a March through the streets of Suva.

    And prove once and for all that he is NOT a lamusona !!!

    The expelled NZ High Commissioner, late Michael Green Green, cites a “Muslim Coup” aspect of 2006 in his forthcoming personal memoir – names sisters Nazhat and Shaista, and Aiyaz Khaiyum; the memoir also claims intimidation and thuggery in Fiji



    A TOP New Zealand diplomat who died last year has left behind a sharply undiplomatic book revealing how Fiji’s military strongman personally threatened “to get him” and describes the regime as one characterised by intimidation and thuggery. Michael Green in 2009 became the first New Zealand diplomat to be declared persona non grata when coup leader Voreqe Bainimarama ordered him out as high commissioner.
    The book titled Persona Non Grata: Breaking the Bond – New Zealand and Fiji 2004-2007, will be launched on June 27 at the Victoria University in New Zealand.
    According to the website http://www.cid.org.nz, the Speaker at the event would be Rt. Hon. Winston Peters. Green, who died last year of cancer, writes of the secret advice he was giving Wellington during the 2006 democracy ending military coup. His tough worded criticism of Bainimarama’s “volatile personality” is likely to anger Suva again.
    Fiji is “characterised by intimidation and thuggery, arbitrary and vindictive dismissals, abandonment of principles and personal betrayals, official misinformation and media censorship, and the deliberate perversion of state institutions.” Green, watching the conspiring leading to Fiji’s fourth coup, lived next door to Bainimarama. As the crisis deepened, they quietly had New Zealand Police posted to Suva to prepare for “the possibility that an evacuation of citizens.” When police put a radio aerial on the roof of the residence, Bainimarama complained they were spying on him.
    By November 2006 Green heard from credible sources that the Fiji Police were planning to arrest Bainimarama for sedition and disobeying lawful orders. Bainimarama instead made a series of demands and threatened a coup.He went to New Zealand on a private visit for the first communion of a grand child but “got it into his head” that New Zealand would arrest him. “He phoned (Defence Attache) Al MacKinnon to him that that, if he should be arrested, his ‘boys’ would be sent over the fence into the Residence to ‘get me’.”The threats were taken seriously and mission families were sent home. Then Foreign Minister Winston Peters told Bainimarama would not be arrested in Wellington. Green said the commander was never interested in negotiations, and pocketed every concession with no reciprocity.
    After the coup took place, New Zealand imposed a ban on all regime officials visiting. Bainimarama rang up a high commission official and said “tell your high commissioner to watch out for retaliation.” Green cites a “Muslim Coup” aspect of 2006 in which Nazhat Shameem, a high court judge, and her sister Shaista of the Fiji Human Rights Commission, advised Bainimarama’s secretive military council. Shaista is now a Grey Lynn lawyer. Another Muslim lawyer Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum was also involved. “In due course all three were to be beneficiaries of the coup.”
    In June 2007 Green made a speech about democracy and the coup and received a call saying Bainimarama did not like it. Then the Junior All Blacks arrived in Suva to play Fiji. Green was invited to sit in President Josefa Iloilo’s tent to watch. It turned out he had a better seat than that given to Bainimarama and Sayed-Khaiyum who were directly behind some New Zealand families “One of the children waved a New Zealand flag throughout the game, while another one shook a big, black rubbery artificial finger every time New Zealand scored.” His expulsion order came soon after: “If my role at the rugby was not the reason for my expulsion, I am sure that it was the precipitant. “ Green said Bainimarama has a long record of getting rid of people who challenged him, stood up to him, or crossed him – or were perceived by him to have done so.
    He is not interested in advice or assistance unless it is to sustain him in power or to implement his agenda in its entirety. “He is uncomfortable with the clash of ideas, negotiation and compromise, all critical elements of effectively functioning democracies.”
    Green said he doubted Bainimarama would ever deliver on his promises of better governance and genuine democracy. Green said it was plain the Fiji military standards were slipping and its soldiers were old and unfit.Bainimarama had always resisted change or improvement and so the army had a much higher average age than others. Territorials called up during the coup became seriously unwell: “Up to a dozen of them were said to have died.” Sunday Star-Times, New Zealand
