 While our national seven aside team attempts defence of the Melrose Cup in Dubai this weekend, one national award repeat winner is the illegal regime’s hapless, hopeless Attorney General, the wannabe half-baked pint-sized legal minah. For someone who has made so many public mistakes in his short stint, he still has the temerity to talk on television, opening his pouty little potty mouth to change feet.

On Fiji One television news this evening he tried to discredit the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) report by asking the extremely disingenuous rhetorical question on how they could have published the report without consulting with all the stakeholders, obviously referring to his despotic little self. You all should have seen him, looking all wide-eyed, lips pursed, like he needs to go doodoo real bad but is too tightarsed.

 Heads Up Genius, the same camera you are speaking to, recorded you last year denying the very same team, visa access to Fiji saying you were not ready and the timing wasn’t right or some such bull dust. We are not losing our minds, we all have the same memory of you being the major obstacle to the IBA team visit and now you’re saying why didn’t they come here and consult with you? OK, whatever.

But you should really read the report through (don’t worry we won’t tell Shaista and it’s not haram) because now the entire legal fraternity the world over have you as number one with a bullet on their international shit list.

 Congratulations Hairyarsehole, we hope your time with Frankie baby was worth becoming an international pariah, enjoy the limelight while it lasts.


 Excerpt below from

 Military influence in Fiji’s judiciary: IBA 04/03/2009 The International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) latest report has expressed concerns on the military-led administration’s continuous influence on Fiji’s judiciary. The report released today titled ‘Dire Straits: A report on the rule of law in Fiji’, also aired its concerns over the state of the rule of law in the country, which it said had deteriorated since the December 2006 coup.

 The report made particular emphasis on the case of former Chief Justice Daniel Fatiaki who was removed from office in January, 2007 and forced to take leave under duress. “If the allegations made against Chief Justice Fatiaki were true, they warranted investigation and consideration by an independent tribunal. “Alternatively, if the allegations were false, the interim regime’s suspension of the CJ was entirely without foundation, constituting a serious and unwarranted violation of the independence of the judiciary,” the report said. “There is no conclusion that can be drawn from the resolution of the suspension of the CJ that does not have serious negative implications for the rule of law in Fiji,” it added. Part of the 31 recommendations in the 118 page report recommends that “the interim regime refrains from any interference with the independence of the judiciary and the legal profession”.

 The IBAHRI also recommended that “the interim regime respects the independence of the legal profession in Fiji, and refrains from making inappropriate criticisms of the legal profession or individual lawyers”.

This report was published following two failed separate attempts by a high-level IBAHRI-led delegation of senior jurists from Australia and Malaysia to visit Fiji subsequent to reports of threats to judicial independence and violent attacks on some lawyers.

 The IBAHRI said since the delegation was barred, the investigation into the state of the rule of law was conducted via teleconferencing with a range of stakeholders based in Fiji and overseas. The report has also recommended for elections to be held at the earliest opportunity so to restore democracy to Fiji and legitimacy to all government actions. Fiji Human Rights Commission (FHRC) chairperson Dr Shaista Shameem labelled IBAHRI’s report “most venomous” saying it was based on anger for being disallowed into Fiji last year.

    This is off the current topic but one that we should be working towards. Crimes against humanity.

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands – The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.

    But the three-judge panel said there was insufficient evidence to support charges of genocide.

    Court spokeswoman Laurence Blairon said, “He is suspected of being criminally responsible … for intentionally directing attacks against an important part of the civilian population of Darfur, Sudan, murdering, exterminating, raping, torturing and forcibly transferring large numbers of civilians, and pillaging their property.”

    Al-Bashir is the first sitting head of state ordered arrested by the court since it started work in 2002.

    Let Voreqe be the next target of the ICC (lets use the term “head of state” loosely since Fiji’s official head of state seems to have strings attached between his various appendages and organs, and the junta giving head to Voreqe.)

    Well. I feel like puking when I saw him trying to look extremely important and trying his best to look the part as much as possible.

    The man is mentally sick and an evil manipulator and those, in my view are two moderate ways to describe the fulla.

    Somebody should plant a bomb underneath a chair for him to sit on right before one of his interviews. The bomb should then be set off just as he is putting on one of his stupid acts in front of the camera.

    But that is still too kind an act to exterminate him from the face of the earth.

    Shi*ster, I feel, would be much more comfortable in Somalia. It is completely corrupt and the officials there are extremely comfortable talking out of the a***holes. Definitely more her style.
    Attorney General MyArse, on the other hand, would be better off in Coventry, by which I mean the old fashioned notion of us (especially the media) turning our backs on him.
    Come on, Fiji media – how about you stage your own protest by having 1 day, perhaps even 1 week, of NOT reporting on ANYTHING the illegal interim govt says or does?!
    Come on! In the first instance, it will be fun.
    Secondly it will teach them that real power lies with the people, not the guns.
    Thirdly, it will give them (in this month of Methodist fasting – boy, am I hungry) something to think about for getting us back to elections.
    Just one day where the media (radio, TV and press) carries NO reports on Govt stuff, except criticisms of them from people like PM LQ, the ousted Parliamentarians, Rt Joni M, the Dan Fatiaki, Richard Naidu, etc. And the NGO’s who are pushing for fresh elections.
    Whaddya say?
    God bless Fiji

    While Mr. Qarase was here at Marrickville Town-hall , I took the opportunity to introduce myself . Later , I asked Mr. Qarase a question , during question time .

    ” Mr. Prime Minister , given the Human Rights abuses since 2000 and the death of CRW soldiers under the Commodore’s Command , what is the likelihood and or reality that Frank Bainimarama will return Fiji to a Democratically Elected Government and where is the incentive for him to do so ” ?
    After a brief pause , Mr. Qarase referred me to his comments in English , at the beginning of his address that evening , basically saying that a dialogue will be entered into where a common ground can be reached between all interested parties and stake-holders , provided the majority of Fiji’s population agree , where the general consensus from such an agreement , can move the country forward .

    It’s my guess , that Frank and Chaudhry , in order to achieve an agreed solution , will have to step aside . In doing so , they will no doubt be brought before the Courts for treason !
    To avoid those charges , as I said some months ago , they are going to have to be declared mentally unfit to stand trial .
    Once committed as insane , they both can step aside and be taken away for treatment without fear of prosecution in a Court of Law .
    This seems to me to be the only way Fiji can begin a quick acceptable recovery .
    The rest in the I.G. will have to face Justice , International style !

    Check out the editorial from the Fiji Sun. Good on you mate.

    The latest report by the International Bar Association human rights section is a damning indictment of the interim government, its controllers, its supporters and its collaborators. This cannot be brushed aside. The regime’s predictable responses that it did not consult all stakeholders, that it lacks legal credibility and it is biased are poor in the extreme. The report is produced by eminent lawyers and judges and as such it has more legal credibility than any of its detractors. If it did not consult all stakeholders, that was because one stakeholder – the interim government – very publicly declined to be consulted when it barred entry to the IBA’s representative. That, however, cannot alter the truth of its findings which appear well researched and equally well supported by evidence. How can the interim attorney general argue that the report lacks evidence that the government has interfered with the judiciary when a chief justice was publicly removed from office without a shred of evidence being offered against him?

    It must be abundantly clear by now that the regime dismissed first and investigated later – only to be forced into an ignominious payout that raises even further questions regarding its motives. The IBA report simply states what most of Fiji already believes. Public confidence in the administration of justice has rarely if ever been lower. The judiciary may well and with reason regard itself as independent but the public perception as a result of actions taken since December 2006 is clearly at odds with it. Similarly, public confidence in the police has been seriously eroded since it became an arm of the military regime.

    There is now no reason to suppose that complaints relating to the regime or the military will be adequately investigated or that some offenders when convicted will be given the same punishment as others. The case of reinstated navy commander Francis Kean is another perfect example. The junta and its puppets cannot continue (with any credibility at least) to complain that it is right and the rest of the world is wrong. And on the subject of credibility, the regime’s response that the report is biased without offering evidence other than its own opinion simply doesn’t withstand scrutiny. Where is the bias and what is the reason for it? We are not told.

    The IBA report has a ring of truth that will echo throughout Fiji and the wider world. Instead of responding with the now familiar bluster and accusations the regime should study this report and take it to heart. It should look conscientiously at how it usurped the freedoms of the people of Fiji with what appeared at the time to be idealistic motives and ask itself if any of its high sounding objectives have been achieved. It should but it won’t. For the lure of power has become altogether too strong. It is increasingly evident in the view of this newspaper that any thought of handing back power to a properly and lawfully elected government has been lost in a lust for control. Meanwhile the people whom the coup was purported to serve continue to suffer with no end in sight. Fiji did not deserve this.

    This a/h seems to be the right hand man of the pig. So where does that place par mess? The way iarse carries on is as if he is top dog and can answer on anything. He also goes on as if he is a legally appointed iag. He is really “stupid” to think he can get away with it because one day soon the ig will have to go and judgement day will come to all the perpetrators. Put simply he has committed treason and made an illegal oath. If he can’t see that then he deserves what coming and it will be his worst nightmare which he fully deserves without mercy. Meanwhile his constant appearnce on the media is most irksome.

    Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum can argue until he is blue in the face but he will never be able to refute the objective conclusions of the Internation Bar Association’s findings on Fiji because they are based on fact.

    For example: “If the allegations made against Chief Justice Fatiaki were true, they warranted investigation and consideration by an independent tribunal. Alternatively, if the allegations were false, the interim regime’s suspension of the CJ was entirely without foundation, constituting a serious and unwarranted violation of the independence of the judiciary.

    There is no conclusion that can be drawn from the resolution of the suspension of the CJ that does not have serious negative implications for the rule of law in Fiji.”

    Then, there is this objective conclusion based on fact: “Another concern is the conduct of judges who have been appointed or promoted following the December 2006 coup and who have heard cases that relate to the constitutionality of their own appointments. This breaches the law of recusal, which prohibits judges from presiding over a matter in which he or she holds an interest.”

    So, when the interim attorney-general asserts the IBA’s black is really Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s white, he only demonstrates to the world his dishonesty, or his stupidity, or his arrogance, or all three of those highly undesirable characteristics.

    Coincidently, they are the very same characteristics evident in our dictator and any number of coup apologists we can think of.

    My favourite quote from the report (among many others) is the following:

    “As the Fijian interim regime barred the delegation from entering Fiji, the investigation into the state of the rule of law was conducted via teleconference with a range of stakeholders based in Fiji and overseas.”

    The attempt by Eye-Arse to ban them couldn’t stop them.
    Teleconferencing beat him!

    He cannot hold back the tide of truth and it’s coming in fast.

    Keep up the good work SWM.
