Sayed-Khaiyum a Marked man by Military

Army still wants Khaiyum out

Coupfourpointfive has been told that the Military Council still wants Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum kicked out of his position as interim Attorney General.

The Military Council's attempts since July to have Sayed-Khaiyum sacked have been in vain because of resistance from interim Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama who was not satisfied with names proposed by top military officers as the replacement.

We can confirm that one of them was the Attorney-General in Mahendra Chaudhry's Labour Government, Anand Singh, who in June lost his job as a legal consultant for Fiji National Provident Fund.

But sources have confirmed that the Council has once again renewed its efforts to have Sayed-Khaiyum removed.

Our sources have established that RFMF's Land Force Commander Colonel Pita Driti has been personally contacting prominent businessmen and other personalities in the private sector, asking them to give him evidence of any business deals or any other activity that can be classified as corrupt, that have been conducted by Sayed-Khaiyum.

Coupfourpointfive has been told Driti has been the strongest critic of Sayed-Khaiyum and his insistence to have the interim AG sacked is a major reason why Bainimarama is sending him away from Fiji by nominating him to lea
