It is understood that Gulbis, Abkhazia's ambassador to Asia-Pacific, based in Suva but with business interests also in Vanuatu was taken from his house last week by a truckload of army soldiers and compelled to leave the country because he was a "perceived threat to Fiji's National Security", despite his heralding, organising and facilitating of the recent visit for the Russian Foreign Minister to Fiji, as well as being great friend of one Colonel Mohammed Aziz of the Fiji Army
It is believed that the nail in Gulbis' ambassadorial tenure based in Fiji had to do with assistance he gave to a private construction company in a long and drawn out legal battle with the Fiji Island Revenue and Customs Authority who were manipulated by someone within the inner circle of the regime bent on raping the company of monies and assets. Gulbis was able to assist their case in court in which the private construction company eventually won.
Juris Gulbis seemed to be a "friend" of the regime and used his seat on the Transparency International board in Fiji to cosy up to them. Even as he served as Abkhazia's Ambassador, Juris raised eyebrows by officiating as the President of the Royal Commonwealth Society in Fiji to celebrate Commonwealth Day while Fiji was suspended from the Commonwealth.
It is understood that Juris was flown to New Zealand and Juris' local counterparts are packing up the office.
His Excellency Juris Gulbis has assured us that he he will release an official statement soon.
