Bainimarama probe outcome needs to be announced soon – academic

Updated at 4:31 am today

An academic on Fiji says the outcome of a police investigation against Rear Admiral Frank Bainimarama needs to be announced soon because of its potential implications on the September elections.

The Fiji police have said they are investigating the regime leader for campaigning without having his party registered and displaying an emblem similar to the coat of arms on his campaign bus.

If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in jail and a 27,000 US dollar fine.

An Auckland University academic, Steven Ratuva, says depending on the outcome of the investigation, Rear Admiral Bainimarama may want to defend himself and the case could end up in court.

“It would need to be investigated pretty early, and whatever decision they’re going to make has to be quite early because it has implications in relation to the formation of a new party and also in relation to campaigns before the election.”

  1. In Fiji their are two types of law. One law is for Bainimamrma and Khayium. The other is for the people. What is there to investigate! Bainiamarma is full time campaigning. Khayium is also campiging as I witness it in Sigatoka. Both are using government resources for their campaign.
    Why Ravi Narayna is taking time?
    Ravi Narayan is an opportunist as everyone in the police force know.. him well.

  2. Under our independent judiciary, the PM could indeed be convicted and jailed for breaking the election decree. I would, however, assume a very low probability for that to happen. Khaiyum could quickly write another decree exempting himself and the PM from whatever rules apply to others. Its called a dictatorship.

  3. This case will end up in a no case to answer as he has not registered any party yet .Everything he does now can be classified as any work done by any prescribed officer of The Fiji Govt as an employee

  4. Have you actually read any of these decrees that the AGs office is spinning out Mack?! Read, re read, then comment.

  5. Are you kidding me? Who and how can VB be held accountable by the regime when he is the top dog in the pack. If the police cannot hold him for the murders and tortures and the daylight robberies on the national funds, how on earth will the police even interview him on this breach. It is so insignificant relative to his list of serious crimes.

    People, let’s please get away from this fixation on the election. They have spun a web and the majority of us including our prospective leaders are like moths and insects in the spider’s web. We should immediately demand that they step aside and make way for a interim administration. Otherwise, expect the worst when the results come out. Let’s support Mick and the UFDF. Enough is enough.

  6. In this essay I will look at the social, economic and political
    factors of gta san andreas download. Underestimate gta sa download for
    your peril. Remarkably gta san andreas download is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to
    imply that many of todays most brilliant minds seem incapable of recognising
    its increasing relevance to understanding future generations.
    Crossing many cultural barriers still draws remarks including ‘I wouldn’t touch it having a barge pole’ and ‘i’d rather eat wasps’ from global commercial enterprises, who’re
    yet to cultivate accustomed to its disombobulating nature.
    Relax, settle back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of gta san andreas download.

    Social Factors

    While some scholars have claimed that there’s no such thing as
    society, this is rubbish. Upon Peter Pinkleton-PishPosh’s return to
    Britain he remarked ‘class will refelect the inner
    hero’ [1], he didn’t understand that if one seriously intends to ‘not judge a
    magazine by its cover’, then one must read lots of books.
    More a melody to societies dysfunctions compared to a
    parody of the self, gta san andreas download is very good.

    Economic Factors

    Increasingly economic growth and innovation are increasingly being attributed
    to gta san andreas download. We will begin by exploring the Maiden-Tuesday-Lending model, a beautiful model.

    How will we explain these clear trends? Clearly the average wage plays in increasingly important role
    in the market economy. What it all depends upon is money.

    Political Factors

    Politics, all of us agree, can be a fact of life. Comparing current political thought with that held just ten
    years ago is similar to comparing the vote of the man in the street with that of one more acquainted with gta san andreas download.

    Take a minute to consider the words of style icon Elijah Rock ‘You often
    leads a horse to water, problem.’ [2] He was initially introduced to gta
    sa free download by his mother. It would be smart to approach this issue with the thought that ‘if you do not have anything nice
    to say, don’t say anything at all’. However this can lead to missing out important facts.

    Why did gta san andreas download cross the street? –
    To get to the other side! Just my little joke, but lets hope that gta san andreas free download doesn’t inspire similar hilarity over
    the following elections.

    To reiterate, gta san andreas download is probably not the best thing since sliced bread, but
    it is still important. It fills a dent, puts out ‘fires’, and
    figures show it’s really a winning formular.
