CORRUPTION IN FIJI SIGNIFICANT UNDER DICTATOR BAINIMARAMA


by Sai Lealea



Fiji Corruption Kings - Dictator Bainimarama & his Puppet Khaiyum

The report by the Heritage Foundation merely reveals something we all know since the illegal regime of Bainimarama and Khaiyum came to power in Fiji in 2006. Corruption we all know always thrive in an environment of tight political and economic control over the affairs of government. That is precisely what we have in Fiji. 

Even worse when regime leaders themselves are the ones actually engaging in heavy and organised corruption. That is again the case with the dictator Bainimarama and his puppet the illegal Attorney General and Minister for All Things, Khaiyum.

While the people of Fiji strive to make ends meet, both their overseas bank accounts, swell with all the kickbacks they have managed to organise from every deals made with investors wanting to invest in Fiji. To make matters worse, all this is happening under the very noses of those responsible for upholding the law because Dictator Bainimarama and Kahaiyum regard themselves as well above it.

Puppet Khaiyum Programming the Puppeteer Dictator with Lies
But as they also well know, their time will come. And when it happens, all the dirty and rotten truth about their sordid corruption will be laid bare for all to see. The report below provides further evidence why Fiji must return as soon as practicable to democratic rule. Otherwise the cost to the people and country will keep escalating to a point of no return.

Every citizen should therefore work to support and join groups such as VRF with its programme of civil disobedience and demolition of regime assets that have propped up the illegal regime in Fiji.

The Heritage Organization USA 2011 Report reports that in Fiji:




  • Corruption is perceived as significant
  • Corruption and the weak rule of law undermine productivity and economic development
  • Financial freedom has deteriorated as a result of continuing State interference
  • Credible allegations regarding misuse of public funds and abuse of public office have been made repeatedly
  • (There is) limited accountability for corruption; inefficient government systems and lack of effective disciplinary processes pose major challenges
  • The independence of the judiciary is questionable
  • Protection of property is highly uncertain
  • (There is) a lack of transparency in government procurement; inadequate technical expertise and uncertainty still persist
  • Regulatory instability and lack of business and investment opportunities continue to cause economic stagnation
  • The Public Debt has surpassed 50% of the GDP and is higher than most regional neighbours.
