About that state of emergency….

The interim regime today gave yet another deadline for when it would review the state of emergency – this time its March 31st.
Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said the IR was committed to reviewing the Public Emergency Regulations. The last extension was March 5.
A ministry of information statement said the military was responsive to how the public felt about “views on abuse of human rights and privileges” and would do its utmost to ensure that people continue to live their normal lives.
While the RFMF has slowly withdrawn its officers from checkpoints in favour of Police officers, Bainimarama has said soldiers would back up the men in blue.

"Back up will only be provided to Police when specifically requested,"
Bainimarama said.
The military boss claims his officers were now channelling complaints from members of the public to relevant government departments and the minfor statement is now calling on the public to “use the existing machinery of Government to pursue and seek redress to their grievances rather than lodge such complaints with the Military.”
"It is not the role for the Military to be involved in civil case investigations as these are matters for the Police , the Office of theDirector of Public Prosecutions and Judiciary to handle."
Bainimarama is now encouraging all members to make their human rights abuse complaints to the Police and Human Rights Commission for investigations, “without fear of intimidation.”
He says all human rights abuse cases would be thoroughly investigated on what he terms “an independent basis” by the Police and the Human Rights Commission.

YES if their role is clearly stated then they should follow and abide by it!

To Anonymous! What is wrong with friends helping? What are you going to try and do? Take them up to QEB and torture them like the countless people the FMF have tortured and injured?
Do you guys ever think before you write or open your mouths?
Your words and your actions will come around to haunt you.

Continue with your good and courageous work on this blog and don't be intimidated by the cowardly acts of the illegal military regime currently running Fiji into ruins. Then Fijians will turn on them and wipe them from the face of this earth. I have people putting money on the heads of the military namely: Frank, Teleni and Leweni. Sooner they go, better it will be for Fiji.

Intelligentsya - You people should be fair enough to post comments that don't agree with your views. And to be that fair, you should remove comment moderation that allows you to approve only comments that agree with your point of view!

To anonymous just above me!
I think the first two posts on this particluar blog article are pro-military and pro-coup. So that second sentence of yours makes no sense. In other words the moderator allowed differing...even threatening comments on this blog. So what are you whingeing about? Some of my posts which are anti-coup have not appeared so not only pro-coup guys get moderated. Either, go and start your own pro-coup blog without moderation or LIVE WITH IT!

'you people should be fair'.. uv got to be kidding me right? whats fair about people dying in the camp? whats fair about being led down a path of destruction by people who have neither the training nor the moral character to be leading even a child anywhere?
LIFE IS NOT FAIR my dear... and if u were Sakiusa Rabaka or Nimilote Verebasaga... you would know exactly what that means.

To Intelligentsya - that's my comment on you to be fair above. What's biting you? Perhaps that some people are getting tired on whingers like you? I'm all for listening to pros and cons of the coup but I have noticed that you only allow most comments that agree with your views. One or two of my comments which don't agree with your views have not been posted. So, what are you frightened of? Removing moderation will reveal that a growing number of people don't agree with you or that some of us are just getting a bit irked with people like you who won't reveal your real selves and stand up for what you believe in?

To anonymous!

Have you ever started a blog? Blogs without moderation get loads of rubbish posted on them from selling viagra to porno. So, please Intelligentsiya keep the moderation.
You said "...just getting a bit irked with people like you who won't reveal your real selves and stand up for what you believe in?"...and this comming from someone who calls him/herself anonymous. Sheesh! Do you listen to whats coming out of your mouth?
