  1. Who needs real evidence when you have a compromised judiciary. Is the standard of Proof “beyond reasonable doubt” or “Whatever the AG says the ruling should be”.

    At this time, so close to the elections, you would think the Fijian judiciary might just pretend to be independent. Fiji’s acting president is a very strange and corrupt Englishman appointed by Khaiyum and Frank. AND people still want to vote FF.

  2. Bakani pleaded quilty. Keni thought he was smart and pleaded not quilty.

    Common sense will tell that either both are quilty or not.

  3. That’s why we need assessors. The assessors found Keni not guilty. So as the above person had mentioned, why have a judge and a group of assessors to hear the case? Why waste money on the court and its system of justice to declare right and wrong, guilty or not guilty? Why all the above when justice is at the whim of the all knowing, all powerful boy from Nadroga and Pakistan, Aiyaz Saiyad Khaiyum ? Is this a new brand of law and justice being surreptitiously introduced by the general aphoney? When will we act against this blatant evil action? When will we say enough? Do not wait for the elections, coz after the elections, it will be too late. It will be a legal dictatorship in place and the whole force of the law and military and international opinion behind them. It is not too late Fiji.
