The disgraced Vice-President of the proposed Fiji First Party
Bijai Prasad has ticked the box NO - re the question regarding previous conviction: [Have you ever been convicted of an offence and sentenced to imprisonment for more than 6 months]. It seems the regime had given Fiji Sun the list long ago for publication, for Prasad recently resigned as VP of the proposed party. Will he be prosecuted under the Political Parties Decree for lying on the application form for party's registration, and Bainimarama and Khaiyum for forwarding his false statement to the Supervisor of Elections?
(2) Worst, he (along with Frank Bainimarama and others) stole the name Fiji First Party from the original owners, mostly Indo-Fijian victims of George Speight's failed 2000 coup. Both, Khaiyum and Bainimarama, were aware of the existence of the party and the name Fiji First Party for Bainimarama chaired the meeting of the political party leaders on 9th April 2009 at the Police Academy, Nasova. Other participants included Khaiyum and representatives of the original Fiji First Party- Anit Singh and Beni Sami. We were able to confirm our claim by publishing extracts from Minutes of the 9th April 2009 Political Party Leaders Meeting at Nasova, chaired by Bainimarama. The original Fiji First Party was also gazetted in Fiji Government Gazette on Friday, 12th December 2008: http://www.fijileaks.com/home/gazette-proof-aiyaz-khaiyum-and-frank-bainimarama-stole-the-party-name-fiji-first-party-from-anit-singh-and-others
(3) We also published a copy of the letter that was sent to the original Fiji First Party on 16th March 2009 to attend the Navosa meeting. The letter was sent from the 'Office of the Prime Minister' and addressed to Fiji 1st Party. Fiji First Party would NOT have been invited unless the PM's Office got a confirmation of Fiji First's registration from the Supervisor of Election's Office. That was the criteria established for Fiji First Party's participation in the PPDF. Now can the Office of the Prime Minister deny either receiving the confirmation of Fiji First Party's registration from the SOE's office and/or the invite to Fiji 1st Party from the PM's office- say on or about the 16th March 2009?: http://www.fijileaks.com/home/fiji-first-party-as-bainimarama-claims-18-more-chiefs-endorse-his-proposed-fiji-first-theft-party-new-evidence-reveal-hekhaiyum-stole-original-name-from-the-indo-fijian-victims-of-speights-2000-failed-coup
ASTONISHINGLY, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and Frank Bainimarama have now applied for registration of their party under the very NAME - Fiji First Party - that they illegally stole from its original owners - the Fiji First Party! And over 40,000 Fijians have become party to fraud and misrepresentation by affixing their signatures!
The LYING CONVICT:
