Public Statement

The former CEO for the Fiji Commerce Commission, Milly Racule, today, confirmed that she fears returning to Fiji and only to be subjected to persecution and intimidation by the Bainimarama-led illegal regime. Ms Racule has been living in Australia since March after resigning from her position in October 2008 under duress and undue political pressure by the interim military government.

Ms Racule who has been an active member of the pro-democracy movement and supports the immediate return to parliamentary democracy has been keeping a low profile fearing that her family members who are still in Fiji could face persecution by military personnel.

Prior to her resignation, Ms Racule faced threats by senior military officers that if she refused to comply by their demands to approve price increases in exchange for better working conditions, she will be detained and subsequently face immediate termination.

Ms Racule says that Bainimarama and his illegal regime has done enough damage to the country and the people of Fiji and should seriously consider stepping down to allow for the restoration of democratic leadership. The prolonged political impasse has had negative impact on the economy including, amongst other things, loss of lucrative and potential investments in Fiji. Investors are wary given the lack of appropriate legislative and uncertainty of institutional framework under the current regime following the recent announcement of the merger between the PIB, Fair Trading and the Commerce Commission which are the major institutions established to promote an investor-friendly environment.

    “The name of peace is sweet, and the thing itself is beneficial, but there is a great difference between peace and servitude. Peace is freedom in tranquillity; servitude is the worst of all evils, to be resisted not only by war, but even by death.” Cicero

    Well, Australia is not such a bad place to get stranded. The drain of skilled and capable people out of Bananaland will continue until only Bani, Leweni Airarse and the two Epelis are left. They can then rule those who have subscribed to servitude or never had a chance anyway. The economies receiving Fijian professionals will benefit (Aus, NZ) and Fiji will suffer.

    It is time to face the dictator in his own state of mind. If it is force he wants then force should be givent o him.The only way out for Fiuji is a RAMSI type of intervention by the UN or someone has to take Bai and his illegasls out.

    Vore should think twice before opening his mouth and openly cahllenging the might of the New Zealand and Australian army.

    THese guys have Ground forces 4 / 5 x our military ,Air force and brilliant navy armed to the teeth with modern and sophisticated arms that will leave him and our out of date military in awe in just minutes.

    For instance the guided bombs , the SAMS(surface to air missiles) with its accurate guided system improving its SSKP (shot kill probability).

    What about the Thermal Type Infrared Detection,no more seeking your enemy face to face.

    What about the unarmed aerial plane taking pictures of enemy territory (The Drone) which is proving success in fighting these modern day wars, where the enemies are unseen.

    Our military is not equiped with all these latest stuff, and yet Bhai is shouting the loudest, testing their rpg(rocket propeeled out of date grenade launcher) unnecessary killing most of the fish in the suva waters, by sending shockwaves.

    Sa warai la, kua…

    Rock on Koya na Man. I served with the NZ and Aussie Warriors in Afghanistan and Iraq. They are brave fearless warriors. It was an honor to fight side by side with them. They are well trained and well discipline. They are sometimes crazier than we were especially the Aussies. Vore, or whoever the fuck your name is, let me give you a word of advise, stick with your Fijians bullshit. Dont blame my fellow warriors from the land of the Kiwi and Kangaroos for your incompetent to run your freaking country. You and your Fijian country are not worthy to clean the rifles and wipe their ass.
