BOB LOWRES: 'Dear Sir, I do not wish to engage in any correspondence with you. If you ever have the spinal fortitude to come to Fiji then I will be happy to speak with you face to face about all the slanderous allegations that you have made against me whilst hiding like a coward overseas.'. Fijileaks to Lowres, cc to Aiyaz Khaiyum: 'Dear Bob. Thanks. You mean to say the affidavit from the New Zealand Police is pack of lies regarding the plots of land that was bought by those criminal drug lords. Again, here [are] the DDP materials, and we have on us far more damaging materials than what we have published so far, not to mention police complains that have been filed against you at the Nadi police station by others in Fiji. We are planning to reveal more shenanigans at Naisoso and we are still waiting for your comments regarding the sale of plots to Nur Bano and those criminal drug lords. And we understand you are yet to settle a payment of over $3 million you allegedly owe to a former employee despite making promises to pay up...'. Bob Lowres is former chairman of Investment Fiji Ltd and owner of Relcorp (Fiji) Ltd. So far, he has declined to make any comments to Fijileaks regarding the alleged under-selling of a plot of land to Nur Bano Ali's Brick Investment Ltd; Aliz Pacific handles Relcorp (Fiji) Ltd and Lowres' business empire in Fiji. We will reveal the lengthy affidavit NZ Police sent to DPP's office in Fiji in a bid to confiscate two plots of lands convicted New Zealand drug lords had bought on Naisoso. Also, we will reveal from affidavits and statements how a former Naisoso employee was falsely accused of general dishonesty causing a loss to Lowres and how someone inside the Nadi Police Station had altered this individual's bail attendance police record while this particular individual was waiting to hear from DPP for nolle prosequi. The hand written note in bail register falsely claimed 'signee out of country for past two weeks - investigate who has been signing'. In the end, DPP quietly withdrew the case filed by Lowres against the former employee, who was still in Fiji all the time
Meanwhile, we have published at the bottom the full 45 page AFFIDAVIT that the BAILIFF tried to serve on these
FFP Ministers barricaded on 9th Floor of Suvavou House
THE LAW BREAKERS: They ignored the FIRE ALARM to hide from Bailiff
AFTER two days, FFP MPs, along with their blundering leader Aiyaz Khaiyum, were forced out of their hiding on the 9th floor of A-G Chambers, when they learnt that the two Judges had outfoxed them by authorizing the Petitioners, Sitiveni Rabuka and Biman Prasad, to publish the hiding FFP MPs names (the Respondents) in local newspapers minus the Affidavit that the BAILIFF was trying to serve on them. We publish below the FULL Affidavit. Surely, if Aiyaz Khaiyum, as Attorney-General and Justice Minister, had a scintilla of respect for the LAW, he could have invited the BAILIFF to come into the so-called 'meeting', serve them the affidavits and quietly slip out of the Attorney-General's Chambers on the 9th Floor. Instead, he made the poor man sit outside his office, while counting the clock ticking away, hoping to render the affidavits invalid. He should be charged with perverting the course of justice. The photos released of the meeting are from the first day and everything else was hurriedly improvised to support his claim that he was conducting 'strategic meeting' for 48 hours. Why Khaiyum never conducted such meetings during cyclones and floods in Fiji? Some FFP MPs claimed to Fijileaks that they were held against their wills, had to share twelve mattresses and improvised pillows with snoring, smelly, grumpy, frightened, and grog-doped colleagues. Some averse to homosexuality and lesbianism, claim they tried to stay awake, fearful of being sexually violated during the 48 hour ordeal. Some of their relatives thought the FFP MPs had locked themselves inside Khaiyum's chambers from impending COUP. They were forced to rush toiletries, knickers, and mens underpants to their beloved ones, and were relived when the two Judges, Kamal Kumar and Anjala Wati, outfoxed Khaiyum. Again, what was Supervisor of Elections doing at 'Hideaway House'?

Illegal practices by First Respondent (Voreqe Bainimarama) - breach of s.112(3) and s.113(2) of the Electoral Act 2014 - Rotuma
5. Voreqe Bainimarama, being a candidate for election in the General Election, was guilty of an illegal practice in that on or about 29 October 2018, in Rotuma, with his knowledge and consent a Government employee (specifically his driver, one Kepani, a public officer) conducted campaign activities, namely distributing campaign materials for the Fiji First Party (specifically t-shirts and sulus bearing the logo of the Fiji First Party) in the areas of Ahau, Motusa, the Rotuma Airport and Pepjei, in breach of s.113(2) of the Electoral Act 2014.
6. Voreqe Bainimarama, being a candidate for election in the General Election, personally or by his agents, was guilty of an illegal practice in that on or about 29 October 2018, in Rotuma, with his knowledge and consent, three Fiji First Party banners were affixed to fences and buildings at Rotuma Airport, a public building, in breach of s.112(3) of the Electoral Act 2014.
7. Voreqe Bainimarama and other FFP candidates received a total of 362 votes from polling stations in Rotuma, of which 320 votes were for Voreqe Bainimarama.
8. The votes referred to in paragraph 7, combined with votes unlawfully, illegally or corruptly obtained by FFP as a result of the other matters complained of in this Petition, are material in number to the result of the General Election such that, if they were not counted towards FFP's total in the General Election, or which, if they were directed to other candidates without the unlawful promotion occasioned by the above breaches, would be likely to affect the result of the General Election.
'FFP candidate Faiyaz Koya (No 585), at that time the Minister for Industry and Trade, was guilty of a corrupt practice of bribery in awarding 1,937 "micro and small business grants" (MSBGs), each in the sum of one thousand dollars (or approximately one thousand dollars), at Subrail Park, Labasa, on 29 October 2018, in order to influence the votes of recipients and their dependents, or to gain their support for the Fiji First Party, in breach of s.140(2). The distribution of grants was timed to be close to the polling dates and pre-polling dates in order to influence voters. It was not necessary for Mr Koya (or any FFP Government Minister) to personally award the MSBGs.' - Affidavit
