"IT is unfortunate that the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee Government MP Ashneel Sudhakar has accused The Fiji Times and other media of sensationalising the Auditor-General's reports. The Fiji Times has been reporting on the Auditor-General's annual reports for decades. The Auditor-General's Report is a parliamentary paper. It is presented to the representatives of the people in Parliament. They pay for it."
"ISA! It must be very constipating for Fiji Sun's veteran journalist Nemani Delaibatiki to "admire" the Auditor-General's 2016 Reports when in the old golden days of Fijian journalism, these Reports were like presents from Father Xmas. As a former senior sub-editor on the old Fiji Sun of the same name, we [alongside Delaibatiki] slaved into the wee hours of the morning to REVEAL without fear or favour to Fijians of all races the controversial contents of these eagerly awaited Auditor-General's Reports. But, then, we did not have Mr Mortein - Ashneel Sudhakar - to threaten us; later Sitiveni Rabuka and his crooks came with their coups to dump these Reports into the dustbin"
Fijileaks: We had reproduced excerpts from Auditor-General's Reports which were audited when the Rabuka, Chaudhry, and Qarase governments were in power - to illustrate that not much has changed, and is still continuing under the Bainimarama government, and posing the question - is millions of dollars wasted on conducting these audits when no one is held responsible for the financial crimes?
"...Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives." --Robert A. Heinlein, -If This Goes On
