Fiji's Dictator will End Same Way as Argentina's - In Prison


Posted on Matavuvale.com - 23 April 2010
Voreqe Bainimarama, his supporters and cohorts' fate will end like this one day- The cries of the law-abiding people of Fiji will be heard when the TIME is nigh.
Argentina's last dictator sentenced to 25 years in prison
Reynaldo Bignone, Argentina's last dictator, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for torture and illegal detentions committed during the nation's 1976-1983 military regime.
In the same ruling on Tuesday, five other retired military officers received sentences ranging from 17 to 25 years,
He was appointed president by the military junta in the waning years of the dictatorship and it fell to him to protect the military as Argentina returned to democracy. He granted amnesty to human rights violators and ordered the destruction of documents related to torture and disappearances of political opponents before agreeing to transfer power to the democratically elected Raul Alfonsin.
Argentina's courts and congress eventually overturned the amnesty, and President Cristina Fernandez has made a priority of prosecuting leaders of the dictatorship.
GOD BLESS OUR FIJI! DEMOCRACY DOES WORK AND IT WILL, FOR US AND OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURE! KEEP THE FIRE OF DEMOCRACY, FREEDOM AND LIBERTY BURING!
Your Decrees are your National confession of Guilt.
Fiji regime 'shredding documents'
FIJI'S military regime has ruled it cannot be legally challenged over its 2006 coup and has begun shredding documents that incriminate the regime.
Blog websites have reported that the troubled country's newly-appointed chief registrar, Major Ana Rokomokoti, has been destroying court documents related to the coup and any other negative claims.
The actions are part of the latest power grab by military leader Frank Bainimarama, who has ruled the country by virtual dictatorship since overthrowing a democratic government in December 2006.
His government was recently handed more power when the constitution was abolished, elections delayed, media censored, judiciary sacked and top officials replaced with those suiting Mr Bainimarama's new order.
The chief registrar, one such appointee, is reported to have begun "shredding away justice from our courts'', according to the blog site, Intelligentsiya, which is carrying news anonymously amid censorship.
Fiji Law Society president Dorsami Naidu said the actions were a vain attempt to protect an illegal government.
"I have heard they have shredded all paperwork and files on actions pending against the military regime,'' Mr Naidu said.
"They're wrecking it to try to get away with what they've done.''
The government has also released a new decree which states that it can no longer be legally challenged on any ruling made between the coup date and when the constitution was abrogated.
Top Fiji lawyer Graham Leung says the seven-point decree gazetted by the ailing President and Mr Bainimarama ally, Ratu Josefa Iloilo, is the government's attempt to clean its "dirty slate''.

the decrees are meaningless...no one will recognize them...this will all end in tears and perhaps a number of firing squads or convenient 'car accident' or 'plane crash'. happy travels.
