SUVA, Fiji —– The Department of Immigration is working towards purchasing land to build Fiji’s first ever detention centre in Nadi.

The Department’s assistant director Edward Brown said they have earmarked a piece of land in Nadi and are currently finalising details including the lease agreements.

Brown said the initial plan was to have it at the airport but they feel that security should not be compromised thus the reason for the delay.

He said people entering Fiji illegally or violating anti-immigration laws are usually detained at hotels while being processed. He said the high costs of this process should be mitigated through the establishment of a permanent detention centre.

  1. Well this new detention center is designed for one reason, to stop the foreign invasion of Lauans to Viti Levu.

    Oops to late.

  2. It was entertaining to see the fifty or so supporters of the soli-sona party march through Lautoka, led by the master convict himself, among other degenerates.

  3. Immigration has taken money from people for dual citizenship and it is over 7 months it has not been issued.This is the most corrupt department. The chinese get their work done in no time while locals have to wait and wait.Visit the department and see the queue.The chinese just work in and get seen immediately.

  4. I understand that people were kept in an accommodation in Namaka of a chinese who has been paid a lot of money by Immigration. Can the Immigration department give the name of this chinese where people were kept and how much he was paid.

  5. Kamal Ear, Biman and Nelesh goundar can go fly kite and jump over the bridge but NFP will not get into Parliament.

    They are wasting time with Wadan and 17 sep they will go and drown themselves in sorrow.

    The in fighting in NFP is just the start. A new leader will be announced on 18 september.

    All the best attar.

  6. Anand, NFP stands for Not for People.

    Biman has started to talk in his sleep about killing someone. Hahaha

  7. Anand may be an alibi for junior chaudary. Can Anand tell us what other option we have instead:FF that has fucked Fiji for 7 years, labour and the chaudary clan that has fucked Fiji before that and plan to do so after sept 13, can he tell us when junior chaudary is coming to answer questions for his pending rape case?

  8. NFP will be history after this elections. I agree with Anand.

    Why would an itaukei vote for NFP? They will vote for Sodelpa or FF.

    Indians will not vote for FLP or NFP. What has NFP done?

    Biman can go climb the tallest coconut palm tree.

  9. Immigration department has 95% i taukei staff. Some are the director Nemani Vuniwaqa’s relative who have been recruited without qualification and experience . What this illegal regime is talking about equality?

  10. @Anon 7:44 PM

    So there you have it, the i Taukei are getting preferential treatment as always but they still cry out that they are so hard done by.

  11. Neither aeroplane Biman nor his sidekick, rookie academic and wanna be politician Dr Neelesh Goundar, can save NFP. In fact they will dig NFP’s grave even deeper. This time NFP will not be able to return from the dead and Biman and chamcha Neelesh can go back to planting rice in dreketi.

  12. NFP thank you for mis-leading people that you can buy 2 chicken instead of 1! And that from so called economist and Dr Biman and Neelesh. Did they fail their class 6 maths?

  13. M reliably informed that there are moves to oust Biman from nFP leadership. He came through the back door after all the hard work by attar, parmod and raman.

    Biman has chosen kulina kamal iyer and chamcha Nilu Goundar.

    God luck and good ridance for the oldest party that has lived passed its life.

  14. Sa mate na NFP. No more than 30 people in their meetings. Its getting from bad to worse.
    Moce nfp.

  15. Where is Wadan Narsey now? He is quick to put pen to paper but why does he not talk about Ro Kepa supporting george speight.

    Why doesn’t he talk about his own nfp which he endorses without facts on how can they chose attar and his wife as candidates.

    Why doesn’t he talk about the growth during the SDL era which was supported by large deficits and consumer spending.

    Why doesn’t he talk about the marriage between sodelpa and flp which is doomed as sDL kicked FLP out in the 2000 coup and Mahen chor repaid the favour in 2006.

    Maybe, wadan is losing his memory. He is forgiven.

  16. Aeroplane Biman has vanished just like MH flight.

    No more NFP. Reduction in Vat with no analysis on it its impact except 2 chicken has made Biman chicken out.

    Dr neelesh goundar is busy writing cooked up analysis on the economy while Big ear Kamal Iyer is looking to bad mouth others with his utter stupidity. A con artist and a failure in everything he does. God help NFP.

  17. NFP people need VAT to be reduced to 10%. NFP will have no duty basic food items.
    Now only Bainimarma and Khayium and their family are having the best lifestyle with huge salary ( about 400% increase) from their salary in 2006.
    8 years of illegal rule and no auditor general’s report since 2006 is a sign of bad governance,corruption and nepotism.

  18. Why Fiji citizens like Dr. Brij Lal and many more are not allowed into the country by the government?
    The chinese influx continues but our people are not allowed to enter.

  19. I met some indian women today. The topic moved to politics. They said they will go through the NFP shed but will vote for another party.

    I wonder why do people treat NFP so badly. Did NFP treat people badly or is it that people don’t trust them?

  20. Detention Centers can become a money making machinery for governments. Fiji will take the place of Nauru as haven for detained immigrants and Bainikaiyum will for graduates to man the center. When the national carriers are not making enough money, when the airport is not making enough money and when the economy is not generating enough money, in come casinos and detention centers!! The immigration department is already at it, making money from fees levied to new immigrants and passport holders…….next!
