One Conman Backs Another

If there is any indication of the MAJOR CON that Bainimarama and his circle have wrought on our country, look no further than validation by another Conman -- Peter Foster.

Foster has a well-known reputation in the Pacific. Just ask the Federated States of Micronesia, Vanuatu and ex UK PM Tony Blair's wife, Cherie Blair.

Being ConMEN, they both have a serious misunderstanding of the C-word....CREDIBILITY...which for both are in tatters.

Conman backs coup leader
4:00AM Tuesday Aug 18, 2009

Convicted conman Peter Foster has written an "insider's account" of Fiji's coup that holds self-imposed leader Frank Bainimarama up as the last bastion of hope for the troubled nation.

Foster, who is on parole after more than two years in jail for money laundering, has published a 60-page document he says reveals the truth behind Fiji's political volatility.

He says Bainimarama, who has been condemned by the Australian and New Zealand Governments and the Commonwealth for refusing to hold elections, is a "humble and decent" man who is Fiji's last hope.

The coup Bainimarama instigated in December 2006 desperately needed to happen to free Fiji from the corruption of the previous government, led by Laisenia Qarase, Foster claims.

He says on his website Fiji Truth that Qarase was corruptly elected and set the tone for corruption that Bainimarama has tried to break.

The claims have been denied by Qarase, who says: "As a convicted fraudster, Peter Foster cannot be trusted to speak the truth."

Others have questioned Foster's words, with one former friend, who did not wish to be named, labelling it "a lot of rubbish".

Just to clear the air, Fiji Truth Movement had blogged about this guy Foster oblivion to the fact that he was a 'con artist'. We initially thought he was genuine & had a story to tell. Nevertheless, we have had to retract the story as NZ Herald also spotted that this man had his hand in some previous coup in Fiji.

We are truly disgusted of him piggy-backing on our name 'Fiji Truth' which we originally had come up with only to find he had simultaneously created a website with the same name & totally opposite angle or approach to the term "Fiji Truth".

This just reaafirms the fact that there are many 'Fly-by nights' con artist that can miscontrue a 'Noble Term' as we had define the term to mean in our perspective.

We cry 'Foul Foster' & Shame on you for using the same name of Fiji Truth when your website stands for the opposite to what we believe in.

ps. we sent an email to him via his site to air our concern but he never replied.

We just hope that the readers will be able to discern the Real Fiji Truth [Na Dina].
