Fijileaks: We will reveal how the former Chief Justice Daniel Fatiaki, represented by Munro Leys and Howards Lawyers, cut a deal with the then Attorney-General Aiyaz Khaiyum, before a Tribunal appointed to hear allegations of misbehaviour against Fatiaki began, and how Fatiaki ran away to Vanuatu in a $275,000 'golden handshake', leaving other judicial victims like the late Solicitor-General Nainendra Nand and others to fight their own cases, when Fatiaki had urged them to stand firm with him after his sacking following the 5 December 2006 COUP
Fijileaks Editor-in-Chief: The former Chief Justice, the late Sir Timoci Tuivaqa's unpublished affidavit on us that denies Justice Daniel Fatiaki helped draft the Justice Decree 2000. But what is of interest is his revelation how Coupist Bainimarama had in his hand a copy of the Judiciary Decree which Sir Timoci recognised straight away as identical to Coupist Sitiveni Rabuka's 1987 Judicial Decree.
Leader of Opposition, Voreqe Bainimarama has written to Speaker of Parliament, Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu, refusing to accept the paid Government quarters as it is illegal to make such an offer in the first place. Bainimarama says the current law does not allow for such a benefit for the Leader of Opposition. He says neither the Prime Minister nor the Speaker of Parliament can unilaterally go outside the scope of the law. Bainimarama says that in this instance, parliamentary approval is required for any amendments to the existing benefits. Source: Fijivillage News
