Last year, the attorney-general repeatedly failed to keep his promise to disclose his and the prime minister’s salary, which is alleged to be larger than the pay of the US president

Call to end Fiji regime pay secrecy

Updated at 9:23 am today

The Fiji Labour Party says the prime minister must provide audited accounts of his salary from April 2010 onwards.

This comes after Rear Admiral Frank Bainimarama told people in Rotuma that reports are wrong to suggest he was being paid nearly one million US dollars a year.

The Labour leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, says it is necessary to establish the truth as in 2010 the responsibility of paying ministers was removed from the Treasury and given to an accounting firm run by the attorney-general’s aunt.

The Labour Party says it has been informed that the process has now been reversed because the regime leader plans to register a political party, making it mandatory to disclose incomes and assets.

The party says Rear Admiral Bainimarama needs to respond to reports that family trusts are being set up to overcome the requirements of the political parties decree.

  1. Why is the salary processed by Nur Bano Ali ( Khayium’s aunty).
    The reason is simple to hide the pay.
    Can anyone find from FNPF what is the contribution going for Bai /Khayium.
    In this way the actual salary can be calculated.
    Simple as ABC.
    Then the matter can be put to rest.
    Where are all the informers!

  2. The salary of all Ministers should be public knowledge, after all they are paid from public fund.

  3. The FLP Leader should write to the new commissioner of police requesting him to charge bainimarama and aiyas khaiyum for breaching the political decree.these two have failed to declare their assets yet continue to campaign openly. We cant have double standart Mr Commissioner of Police!.

  4. You guys must be insane! Why would we incite the peasants in this country with salary and asset declaration. It would only lead to bickering, jealousy and eventually violence. So we keep the salaries and other remunerations under wraps as disclosure would jeopardise national security. Sorry, no news here.

  5. To me a million US$ seems a bargain. The best PM and AG the country every had deserve more than that. How many posts does the US president hold? Right only one. How many lay on the shoulders of our great leaders Khaiyum and Bainimarama: More than 15 each. As they do a better job in all of them than the US Pressi does in a single one, what should our great leaders salary be? Right, at least 15 million US$.

  6. Well, the salaries these gentlemen have bagged is one thing. Other income includes bribes from contractors to whom large projects have been awarded without tender or due process. Nadarivatu hydropower alone has earned Khaiyum and Bainimarama nearly 17 million US$ in kick backs.

  7. Voreqe and Khaiyum can talk about so many other things so freely. But of this single issue they cannot speak. How much are they paid ? That simple fact ladies and gentlemen of the jury will tell you the truth. These two men are undoubtedly ( beyond reasonable doubt) cunning, dishonest and absolutelu unworthy of any public trust. They are absolutely unworthy to hold public office.

  8. obviously like your web-site but you have to take a look
    at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are
    rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand
    I will surely come back again.

  9. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community.
    Your site offered us with valuable info to work on. You have done a formidable job and our entire
    community will be grateful to you.
