Roko Tui Dreketi Charges Changed as Evidence get Flimsy

08 April 2010

Sources in Fiji reported to me that The Gone Marama Bale, Roko Rui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa, again appeared in court today on charges of Inciting Public Unrest under the Public Emergency Regulation. 

Would you believe it, this is the 9th time for her to appear in court on these charges.

Due to the clear lack of concrete evidence Prosecutors have now changed the charges and requested further hearing in 3 weeks.

Now she is to be charged with Conspiracy to Defy the Government, yes you all better believe there is such a totally ABSURD charge in modern day Fiji!

The hearing started at 11am then there was a break in proceedings, yes you guess it, State Prosecutors were running around to drum up new charges as the current ones just won't stick, due to lack of evidence.

I have also been told that the Illegal Regime wants to make an example of the Roko Tui Dreketi and are aiming for a prison term of 2 years. So you all see, judges are bound to be instructed by the illegal rulers of what they want as a sentence. What a sad and corrupt justice system we have in Fiji.

Supporters were threatened not to mention the court case today.

Please spread this injustice far and wide to denounce the kind of justice people in Fiji are now subjected to by the Illegal Regime and its so called kangaroo justice system.

For the illegal regime now in power in Fiji the principle of "Justice delayed is justice denied" is as foreign to them as their perverted notion of a justice system now run by an illegal CJ and sycophant judges.

  • I think the Mataitini are up to their old tricks again.Trying to get The Marama (tabu saka yani) to be imprisoned so The Vunivalu "Mataitinis" can run (ruin) everything about Rewa.
  • Since the Mataitini and Voreqe are related what goes behind closed doors whoever knows? Everyone's guess !

No plea yet for Kepa

REWA chief Ro Teimumu Kepa is yet to take a plea after the Director of Public Prosecution's Office amended charges against the former Cabinet minister.
Kepa initially charged for violating the Public Emergency Regulation is now charged with conspiracy, after amended charges were read in the Suva Magistrates Court.
The court heard allegations that between July 12 and July 29 in 2009, Ro Teimumu conspired with Methodist Church ministers to host the annual Methodist conference in Lomanikoro in Rewa even after a directive against it was given by head of Government Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.
It was alleged that Ro Teimumu issued a letter telling members of the Methodist Church that Rewa was getting ready to host the conference despite the permit for the conference being cancelled by the Government.
It was alleged that the church's standing committee met in July 2009, which decided that the annual conference would go ahead, which was followed by a visit to Rewa on Sunday, July 19, to officially inform the head of the confederacy of the decision.
The following day, Ro Teimumu issued a statement to the people of Rewa confirming the gathering in August 2009.
Ro Teimumu's lawyer Sevuloni Valenitabua told the court that they had received information regarding the amended charges but still needed time to go through the details.
Magistrate Thushara Rajasinghe allowed the reading of the charges.
The plea was deferred.
A plea is likely to be taken on April 26, when the case will be called again.
