Remember it was not the first time he committed treason….. In 2000 Commodore Bainamarama revoked the 1997 Constitution and he broke his Presidents promise of an amnesty

After declaring martial law and taking command of the country late yesterday, Fiji’s new military rulers said they would begin negotiations to free the hostages. The forces have not cracked down on the rebels or stopped their supporters from entering Parliament.

As a delegation of four officers from the military met Speight representatives today afternoon at a theological college near Parliament, rebel supporters threw rocks at cars, and soldiers did nothing to stop them.

Meanwhile, formalising his powers, Commodore Bainamarama today revoked the 1997 Constitution, but in a second decree said all laws in force under that Constitution would remain unchanged under martial rule.

Commodore Bainamarama said Speight would have to be granted an amnesty despite his “criminal act” in taking the country’s Prime Minister hostage.

He said Fiji’s President Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara had already promised Speight an amnesty.

  1. I say finis Frank has a lot to answer for BEFORE 5 Dec 2006 when he unlawfully took over the Government of Fiji.
    And, he of course has lots more to answer for AFTER that date and the 8 year period of his misrule.

  2. The Supreme Court of India has ordered the removal of the Indian Cricket boss Srinivasan for corruption.(Aljazeera news 29/3).
    The Supreme Court of Fiji should see if some people who are in power should be removed from their position for their illegal acts.
    That is what an independent impartial court is meant to do. Remove people who transgress the law.

  3. The thugs must be tried in the highest court of the country for treason, corruption , suffering and nepotism.Fiji’s election not be free and fair under the regime.
