Insiders: Dictator's Daughter Nails 'Sweet Deal' for Her and Dad

Posted on Coup Four Point Five - 17 June 2011

LET THERE BE LIGHT: But first we need $3.4 million dollars.

The spotlight has gone on the tender process to upgrade the light stands at the National Stadium in Suva, approved last week at a hugely inflated price of $3.4 million dollars.

Insiders say the tender was signed off  behind closed doors by none other than the CEO of the Fiji Sports Council - the daughter of Frank Bainimarama, Litiana Bereso, who critics say got the job thanks to his influence.

The contract was won by Sigatoka Electrical but those in the know say local contractors valued the work at a market rate of just over $1 million dollars.

So why was the contract so high and where is the money going? Insiders claim Sigatoka is making a grand profit of half a million and Bainimarama's daughter a sweet $2 million for herself and her Dad.

Critics say while it looks like a case of 'like father like daughter', the irony is that the illegal prime minister was only last weekend lecturing people about corruption at the Fiji Institute of Accountants (FIA) conference saying a Commission of Inquiry is needed to look after the FIA complaints.

Sources say the push to drive auditors into a corner was mooted by the illegal attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum but had to have to come from his accountant aunt, Nur Bano Ali. The illegal AG's connections to Sigatoka is also believed to have helped Sigatoka Electrical win the competitive tender.

The four light stands at the stadium were supposed to have been upgraded late last year but the Sports Council is only just getting to them now. The multi-purpose National Stadium, which is also known as the TFL Stadium, is mostly being used for rugby, league and football matches and can hold about 10,000 spectators.

Question: Who are the people who can help build a new, free and fair Fiji?
