Breakout Rumour at Naboro Prison

posted on coup four point five - MONDAY, APRIL 4, 2011
NABORO: Said to be on high alert.  
Sources say prisoners at Naboro maximum security are being moved because of a massive breakout rumor. 
Prison officers are said to have been working overtime in the last week to move prisoners to other locations. 
A prison officer has told us they were directed to empty the maximum prison because the army will also be carrying out mass arrests very soon and that all political prisoners will be kept at Naboro. 
It's believed allocation has been made for 50 prisoners and that they may include: 
1) Former SDL ministers
2) FLP members
3)Trade Unionsts
4) Ex Army and Police Officers
5) Youth leaders
6) And a few chiefs 

The rumoured breakout, if it happened would be a major threat, of course, to the illegal government of Frank Bainimarama.  

Intel sources believe there is a very strong possibility the 300 3FIR soldiers deployed just today have only been chosen from Tailevu/Naitasiri areas, allowing Brainimarama to build his inner circle. 
Attempts are being made to access the list of 300 and to establish if there is a trend at play. 
Intel sources also continue to relay there is a possibility the converging of so many soldiers in Suva will allow the dictator to remove the illegal President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, and detain anyone who tries to move against him.

Training or a show of strength?


GREEN UNIFORMS: Back on Suva streets.

The 3rd Battalion Infantry Regiment took to the streets of Suva today with its commanding officer saying it's part of a three-month training programme.
But intel and police sources say it's a security measure to protect the position of the illegal leader, Frank Bainimarama, who is in Indonesia at the moment.  

Sources say the regime has deployed extra men every time the dictator has left the country.

They also say the stories that appeared in local Fiji media today failed to say that the so-called training programme will cost the country two million dollars a month.

The commanding officer of the 3rd Battalion Infantry Regiment Lieutenant Colonel Jone Kalouniwai told media today: "The whole purpose why we had conducted our battalion parade this morning was to showcase to the Commander Land force the capabilities of the 3rd battalion."

He also said: "Once I had taken over command of the 3rd Battalion – one of my first aims was to try and transform the 3rd Battalion into an effective unit. We have a role to play within the military and it is to maintain an operation capability of a standby company on a 24 hour notice."

Kalouniwai says the parade this morning was 'also a way of discovering any anomalies that need to be dealt with.'

Intel sources claim the regime is looking for an opportunity to show its might and suggest that while oil prices have jumped worldwide to US 1.08 a barrel, the illegal government has deliberately chosen to suppress local prices.

They say doing this will allow them to manipulate prices, which are now likely to soar at an unimaginable amount and force holding reserves to crash.

It's being suggested the explosion in prices will force bus and taxi operators to hike their prices leading to a public outcry at which time the 300 men on 24/7 will come in handy in maintaining power.

Intel sources say the regime knows citizens have a fear of the green uniforms and are taking the chance to show their strength and rattle people.

Editor's Note: Below is a statement posted a short time ago by the Ministry of Information on its website under the title "Be a soldier First: Tikoitonga."

More than 300 members of the 3rd Battalion Infantry Regiment (3FIR) were told to “be soldiers first” before excelling in other aspects of their lives.

The Commander Land Force, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga as reviewing officer made the order 3FIR soldiers during a parade at Queen Elizabeth Barracks this morning.

Col Tikoitoga told 3FIR soldiers: “We need to rethink who we are”.

“We need to keep in mind that we are soldiers more that anything else.

“There are many duties and activities that needs to be carried out for the betterment of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.

“As members of the 3FIR, you need to create and establish a platform for other units in the military that will bring about reliable reputation to the institution.

“All other units of the military play a supporting role while your role is to uphold the integrity of the RFMF,” Col Tikoitoga said.

Soldiers of the 3FIR were reminded of the need to remain physically, mentally and spiritually fit.

He also made a call for soldiers to be proud of the unit they are part of and the uniform they wear.

“This will enable us to serve our country and other nations well when called for peace keeping duties,” Col Tikoitoga said.

Commanding Officer of 3FIR Lieutenant Colonel Jone Kalouniwai was also at the launch of Sub-unit training programme.

“The programme is a three-month highly intensive training the unit will conduct periodically in order to elevate basic soldiering skills, unit cohesiveness and its level of preparedness,”  Lt Col Kalouniwai journalists.

“This is to lift our performance and our preparedness in case of any situation that may arise the dress worn by the troops will be battle-order.”
