Fiji Coup 2006 Ring Leaders

Above are the three men behind the Fiji Coup 2006. From left to right: Commodore Frank Bainimarama, Colonel Pita Driti (Land Forces Commander), Major Neumi Leweni, Military Spokesperson, and Deputy Commander Esala Teleni.

Driti is the one responsible for the rounding up and beatings dished out to anyone who speak out against the illegal regime and Leweni is the public voice for any repressive message from the Military Commander and its supporters.

Other notable players supportng these three include: Navy Commander Frances Kean, Bainimarama'a brother in law, and a product of naked nepotism at work in the military, and the commanders of the infantry divisions who come under Pita Driti. Among this group is the commander of one of the infantry regiments and a son of former Fiji President, Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara. He is Colonel Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara

It is unclear if all the infantry commanders support the illegal actions of the Military hierachy as they have been silent and/or absent during the events surrounding the illegal action of overthrowing the democratically elected Fiji government on December 5, 2006.
