News is coming in that Frank Bainimarama is moving to sack the President to allow him to assume executive authority.

- No, the people must get their government back and the Soldiers must arrest Aiyaz and Frank now !Once Frank is arrested and his position and authority over the RFMF untenable, then the President can appoint a New Commander and the New commander could declare a State of Emergency and declare Martial Law to control any unrest.Then the GCC would need to reconvene and either reappoint the current President and appoint a Vice President and Caretaker Prime Minister.
Given the lack of time, all this could be done by word of mouth and the necessary action taken immediately.
It seems Aiyaz is determined to take over Fiji with his puppet Frank Bainimarama and that is an ending too dangerous to contemplate.Goodbye Fiji as we know it, hello Chindia and a new Islamic State in the Pacific.
So let it be written and if you don't get off your arses, so let it be done, for good !
- New Islamic State in the Pacific !
With the Tongan PM Tuivakano in Vavau at the Pacific Trade Minister’s meeting, he will likely get some advice from Sevele who is Governor of Vavau, to advise Lt. Col Mara to apply for asylum in NZ, unless Mara and King George stubbornly insist on taking on Bainimarama, despite the cost to Tonga if Fiji imposes sanctions on Tongan USP students, Tongan imports that come through Fiji ports and stop the Pacific Sun flights to Tonga. Mara should maybe not overstay his welcome by not endangering his Tongan relations and exposing them to Bainimarama's wrath. In fact it may be advisable for Mara to leave Tonga and go to NZ now, before Tuivakano returns to Nukualofa and have to refuse Bainimarama's extradition application.
Fiji-Tonga relations complicated by Ratu Tevita Mara says Dr Lal
One of those who closely follow developments is Fiji and around the Pacific is Professor Brij Lal, a Fiji born academic now with the Australian National University
Dr Brij Lal says Ratu Tevita Mara's escape to Tonga could complicate relations between the two neighbours and in the wider Pacific.
He says it raises the question of whether giving refuge to Ratu Tevita Mara who is related to the Tongan Royal family, is the government's decision as well.
Presenter: Clement Paligaru
Speaker: Dr Brij Lal, Pacific and Fijian affairs expert at the Australian National University
DR BRIJ LAL: This raises a number of questions. The first question is how did the Tongan navy breach the sovereignty of Fiji, how did it reach Fiji waters, did it seek the position of the Fiji navy to respond to the alleged distress call by the boat carrying Ratu Ului Mara. What happened there, how many people within Fiji were involved in trying to get Tevita Mara out of Fiji, a whole range of things. And of course, the irony is that Tonga under Fred Sevele was championing the cause of Frank Bainimarama trying to persuade the other Pacific Island countries to have a more sympathetic approach to Fiji and now this.
I think this is going to complicate the problems in Tongan-Fijian relations and not only that, but I think it's going to embroil the wider Pacific Island countries in Fiji's ongoing saga.
You remember that Fiji is the chair of the Melanesian Spearhead Group and so how this plays out in the wider region, there are legal issues here, how this all works out remains to be seen. But it's a very, very messy affair.
PALIGARU: Ratu Tevita Mara is the military officer we're talking about . He's posted something on UTube which is his explanation about well, his side of things. So this is really going to be it seems played out in public if it isn't already being played out the way he's posted that up. A lot of accusations being thrown about as well. So we're about to launch I suppose in the Pacific into something that hasn't quite been witnessed before?
DR BRIJ LAL: Indeed, I think there are a couple of things coming out from Ratu Tevita's address on the UTube. I think there's a lot of scepticism about the timing of this. He was to be arraigned before the courts on a number of charges and he decamped to Tonga, so the timing raises a number of questions. I think it's also important to bear in mind that Ratu Tevita was very much part of the small group of army senior officers who did the coup. He was in fact Frank Bainimarama's right hand man. He was the chief of staff. So he's privy to a lot of information about what went on the intrigues and the massinations and if he so chooses, he could spill the beans.
My own sense is that it's a shock to the system, but I don't think it's a fatal one. It's not a fatal one for this reason, that I don't think a lot of people will respond to his call to rally behind him. I don't think he has his father's mana and a lot of people will also see that he was part of the regime that he now finds fault with.
Fijian soldiers were traumatised by the mutiny of November, 2000, and I don't think that they will engage in an activity like that anytime soon.
And the second point is this kind of scapegoating Aiyaz Khaiyum. Now Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is a very visible and even very brazen defender of the coup. He seems to relish power. He comes across as arrogant.
PALIGARU: He's the attorney-general there for those who don't know.
DR BRIJ LAL: That's right, yes and so he's the focus of a lot of wrong. But I think while he's certainly a central figure in this sage that is going on, I think it's important to realise that he is not the only one. A lot of people in various sectors of society where there is a judiciary public service, academia, the business community, they are all not behind the coup, but certainly kept a very strategic silence and even supported the so-called aims of the coup and so this effort to sort of identify and isolate and blame one individual. It feels to me or will lead to the wrong conclusions, because the senior, senior military officers are all part of this and now this whole thing is beginning to unravel, but I do think it won't garner the kind of support that Ratu Tevita Mara hopes. It's very ironic really that we have a very high chief and a very formerly senior ranking officer seeking refuge in Tonga and from there posting on UTube his dissatisfactions with what's going on in Fiji.
PALIGARU: Ratu Tevita Mara here comes from a family that's very closely linked with the Tongan Royal Family, in fact they're members of an extended family.
DR BRIJ LAL: Yes.
PALIGARU: What impact do you think this could have on relations between Tonga and Fiji?
DR BRIJ LAL: It has potential to get worse, but what we do know is Fiji has now or will file papers to have Tevita Mara extradited to Fiji for I mean they will call him a fugitive and he has breached his bail conditions and so on, but whether Tonga in fact obliges and sends him back to face the music in Fiji remains to be seen. And the fact that the Tongan monarchy has given him their house in the royal care or royal household raises questions about the complications between family ties and legal obligations and so on. We have a situation here of the royal household giving refuge to Tevita Mara. Is that the view of the government of Tonga as well? So I think the important thing now is to see how Tonga responds. They may decide to give Ratu Tevita political asylum. We don't know. But certainly, certainly Fiji is totally unhappy with the way things have evolved and certainly with the Tongan navy breaching Fiji's sovereignty. So a whole range of questions all depending on how Tonga now responds to Fiji's request to have Ratu Mara back in Fiji to face the courts.
On the other hand Dr Brij Lal and Paligaru...........Tevita Mara's stay in Tonga will benefit the Kingdom and instead of relying to Fiji like you discussed might allow NZ and Aust to take over Fiji's positions whatever sanctions Fiji might want to exercise.
Fiji is now digging its own grave and instead of somebody to bury it........burying its ownself! What a laugh...!
Well, if the story on coup 4.5 is correct and they sack the President and Frank takes over, that's when we will begin to see the master plan take shape !
Chindia, formerly known as Fiji or Viti, the 1st. Islamic Nation !
Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum will appoint himself Caliph and Viti will be the 1st. Caliphate !
Either that or one of the boys from the Middle East will take over.
Mothers and Fathers of Fiji, hide your Daughters and be prepared to start wearing the New National Dress.
That's right, the ugly, oppressive Burqa.
