The Fiji Police Force has confirmed that its officers are investigating a report from a car salesman claiming he was allegedly beaten up by military personnel.

Keni Finau told FBC News he had lodged a complaint against a military officer in 2010.

According to Finau, the officer was allegedly having an extra-marital affair with one of his relatives.

He then told the officer’s wife and lodged a complaint with the military.

Finau claims, on the 3rd of this month, eight military personnel visited him at his work place questioning him about the complaint that he had lodged.

He says, he admitted making the report and the men requested him to accompany them to the military camp to discuss the issue.

Finau claims the men took him instead to Colo-i-Suva where he was allegedly beaten up.

He says after the beating, he was told by the men to find his way home through the bushes and not to use the road.

Finau says he did as he was told and reached home at about 9pm.

Military Land force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga has confirmed they are aware of the case and it is with the Police.

Police Chief of Operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu says they’re working closely with the military about the complaint from Finau.

  1. sa vakaloloma saraga oira na sotia. na vei buturaki era cakava tiko. vakacava me 1 on 1?
    vakarauga ni LAMUSONA.

  2. According to the article:

    “He says, he admitted making the report and the men requested him to accompany them to the military camp to discuss the issue.”

    Did they request him, or order him? It seems unlikely that anyone would willingly follow such a request. Therefore, I suspect that he was ordered.

  3. Pathetic is an understatement with police investigation in this case.

    How long does it take them to investigate when the victim can basically identify his assailants. It goes to confirm that the rule of law is does not exist in coup coup land; where some animals are more equal than others.

  4. Human rights abuses are a necessary ingredient of a military dictatorship. The population is supposed to know that the thugs can take the liberty to brutalise anyone anytime for any reason or no reason at all. So far it has worked exceptionally well in Fiji where no sign of resistance against a brutal, thieving regime has shown. Everybody thinks, do I really want to go to the barracks, do I want by house burnt? Do I want to loose my job?

  5. This will just be filed in the special dustbin-file with all the other investigations of corruption and violence in the Banana Republic of Fiji.

    Their leader is the biggest thug of them all – so they have all learnt from Frank’s example.

  6. Yes, your police are pathetic. You all know that calling them is a joke, even when life depends on it. Call your fire department about a grass fire approaching your home and if you can even get them to answer they will tell you to wait for the fire to start burning your home before bothering them.

    Police investigating the military???!!! What a joke that is. Like the rat interrogating the snake. Fiji culture, life, and society is a JOKE, a joke on the people, and the tourists who come here seeking ‘paradise’. God help you all when the truth of that reality gets out. What will you do when tourism stops? How will your phony gov pay back all the money stolen from pension to buy planes that will carry no passengers? Oh thats right, the chinese will help you out. Good luck with that one!

    Meanwhile, drink the cava shitty dirty water, get drunk and keep killing yourselves. Keep pushing this sh!t on naive tourists who have no taste for this crap and soon you will have no money and no food and will have to go back to eating each other.

  7. Any one still waiting to see evidence to be convinced that 7 years after the military takeover Fiji is still a military dictatorship?
    The military rulers and their henchmen do not regard themselves bound by the rule of law and respect for human rights and due process.
    They literally take the law into their own hands and by now we all know what that means.
    they butaraki anybody who opposes, criticises or complains against them.
    And they want us to believe they are creating “true democracy” in a “new Fiji”!!

  8. one Dharam Lingam of USA tells us in his post in C4.5 that ” Atleast everyone in Fiji is treated equally -literally” .
    This treatment of Finau is a good example of that!

  9. how brave!
    8 military bullies going to round up one civilian at his work place!
    did they need to put on riot control gear as well?
    what a shameful lot!
    they obviously don’t have much to keep them busy at the military camp.that’s why they can spare 8 thugs for such an assignment.
    I cry for my beloved country languishing under thug rule.

  10. Our fate is in Frank’s hands. Wow.

    You mean like how Frank’s fate is now in the hands of the juju man that he now employs to advise him because everything else is turning to crap ROFLMAO?

  11. Hey Peter
    Check this out:

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-10-23/an-constitution-expert-yash-ghai-says-he-doubts-if-fiji-pm-has-/5039704

    Professor Ghai has told Australia Network’s Newsline program Commodore Bainimarama’s comparisons between the commission’s draft and the final product have been flawed.

    “I think most dictators have a great capacity for self deception and he may be suffering from that,” he said.

    “I doubt if he has read the Constitution – he just repeats what his Attorney General tells him to say, and those are his words.”

    “He has made various statements about our Constitution which are inaccurate in his criticism [and] he has said many things in praise of their Constitution which are inaccurate.”

  12. Good example of life in animal farm! Victims and their relatives report abuse and violation of rights, get rounded up, interviewed and beaten up for lodging complaint. Its law of the jungle at work and this had been the order of the day under the illegal self-imposed regime! With military thugs going around beating relatives of victims for voicing complaint, imagine what democracy is like with the military as its guardian as stated in the shabby constitution………welcome to the Fiji of Bainikaiyum!!

  13. One puff from fiji is briefing a begger from vanuatu that every thing is ok and fiji is heading towards election in 2014. the dead nuni tells the begger that the blue book has full protection for fiji people but least he tells the begger that dead nuni and his crowd have full protection of their ass in that blue book.

  14. @ kainoqu
    you have put the whole situation prevailing in Fiji under the Bainikaiyum dictatorship in a nutshell.
    excellent.

  15. I am surprised we don’t here from Crosbie Walsh and the regime that stuff like this all happened under Qarase and was so much worse !!!

  16. @ da man

    I am surprised we don’t here from Crosbie Walsh and the regime

    I think that Croz and the Regime have both given up trying to teach everything that up is down, left is right and that everything that they say is true. I doubt that they care what anyone thinks about them anymore because Frank and Aiyaz have said too many lies and made too many false promises.

  17. Croz, in one of his inane contradictory postings said the other day:

    “It is difficult and probably impossible to gauge the level of support for the Bainimarama government and its prospects of winning the 2014 election”

    The genius then goes on to say:

    .
    “My view would be that with this supposed “bedrock” support —and the support that Navosavakadua does not acknowledge— the PM should be well over the 50% mark”

    Only Croz can concede something is impossible to gauge and then give his view.

    I wonder how he was able to take a census of the population to form that view?

    The man must be God. (At least according to him)

  18. with advancing age even good minds can get buggered. this seems to be the case with Croz. and the mind buggering process can even begin to set in earlier if an academic aligns himself to a dictator and tries to justify and rationalize the dictator’s rule. defending the indefensible can be very problematic. so it is with Croz. he has got himself into deep shit by standing with the Fijian dictator.

  19. radio.

    “I think that Croz and the Regime have both given up trying to teach everything that up is down, left is right and that everything that they say is true”

    Surely you must admit,the regime and to an extent croz have bent the minds of those who by their own admission were indoctrinated by Fijian radical’s led by none other than Rabuka and Qarase.

    Now these lost souls have not only seen the light but have welcomed Frank as their spiritual director.

    So I suppose they have now accepted the fact that left is right and so on.

  21. he should have refused to from his place or could have call some people to follow them to where they were going to.if it was me if i go down one will have to come with me
