PM's warning

Vuniwaqa Bola-Bari
Sunday, August 30, 2015

FIJIANS living abroad who were plotting against the State will be tracked down and brought to justice. This was the warning from Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday.

"If you encourage sedition, you are committing a serious offence. If you urge violence against anyone in Fiji, you are committing a serious offence," he said.

"The hand of the law is very long and rest assured the authorities in Fiji will not rest until you are brought to justice."

Mr Bainimarama also reminded those living next to people trying to divide Fijians not to be fooled.

"It is not only illegal but even if they were permitted, they would have no hope of surviving economically."

He said it would not only make people poor but also "foolish".

"So turn your backs on these messengers of division. Report any illegal activity to the police, and if anyone you know is involved, tell them they risk spending many years in jail.

"This also applies to Fijians who are plotting against the State overseas, including certain high profile figures in Australia."

Mr Bainimarama said those behind the move were those who do not believe in democracy and in listening to the will of the people.

"They want to impose their will on everyone else. They are enemies of the State and enemies of the Fijian people. They are enemies of investment.

"They are enemies of a modern Fiji. They are enemies of prosperity for all Fijians.

"And we are going to track them down and bring them to justice."
