JOURNALIST TURNED FFP SUPERGRASS?: It was the Fijivillage News Editor Vijay Narayan who sent series of texts to Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum that resulted in NFP President Draunidalo being thrown out of Parliament
But what about Minister Parveen Bala, seen here with Dorsami Naidu before their failed bid to seize control of Then India Sangam Fiji?
"I then received a text message and I have got copies of that here, which I am happy to pass on to the Committee, from Vijay Narayan who is a News Editor of Communications Fiji Limited and the Legend News Station and he said: "Bula Sir, you had raised a Point of Order saying that Draunidalo called Reddy a fool, she then got up and said 'calling us dumb natives, you idiot'. Will this matter be taken further? Thanks, Vijay...My response was, "I did not hear the second part, did you hear it?" He then responded and said: "I have the recording, Hansard should have it, it was very clear." I then said, "Okay". I then went immediately to the Honorable Speaker and showed her his text message. I said I did not hear it, and she said that she did not hear it ..." Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum to Privileges Committee

Witness No 1: Hon Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.

It's always been the hallmark of journalists like Vijay. unqualified but have to survive so they make their name doing all sorts of shoddy dealings. A sucker through and through. Let's see where he will run when the FF Government is finitto.

Good work Vijay. I salute you. Today you have helped Fijian taxpayers get rid of the parliament of extra burden as the right place for tupou draunidalo is a mental hospital as no one in their mind would ever imagine something that was never said nor implied. tupou has lost her mind and taxpayers should be funding her treatment at mental hospital rather than feeding her big mouth stirring trouble with her crazy imiganation. We need more people like you who help dumping the tatti at the right place rather than licking it clean. Wananavuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Vijay

For Aiyaz the " violence" of Tupou Draunidalo's use of language in Parliament is unacceptable but he was OK with the violence, terrorism, criminal intimidation and coercion of law abiding citizens during the Bainimarama military coup and the dictatorship which followed and of which he, Aiyaz, was the main boy?

I am not a journalist (am a chef) but if I was (a journalist) I would have sent two texts messages –back to back- one to AG, as is, of Vijay’s and the second to Hon. Draunidalo, saying : ‘Bula, Madam, I heard you call the Education Minister a ‘Fool’ and AG an ‘idiot’, which I am sure they both are, but would you care to elaborate slightly more on it, please..’ Now, that’s the way to cook a good Kari Bargi, a complete balanced meal, no half pie.

Developments since the elections confirm that a new order is needed in Fiji. This bunch, for which a lot of people had admiration and lay their hopes in, has proved itself to be incompetent, corrupt, nepotistic, and thoroughly dictatorial. A civil order is needed in Fiji. Failing this, I see the country descending to major violence and civil strife.

Vainglory is another word which describes this Toppis' performance - but he was also an insulting and a mocking ' fool' as well'. He was provocative - as if just daring the Opposition to call him "a Fool". And good that the Opposition did. It was absolutely needed to call this 'spade a little more than a bloody shovel'. Minister Reddy is a FOOL alright.

It's shameful to read the comments of people calling Honorable Reddy as idiot and fools. None of you even cme close to his achievements academically and never will. Most of those blowing their loud mouths against him would not know this but a lot of the teachers that are responsible for your childrens education were taught by this same idiot/fool. Imagine what your children's will be if Honorable Reddy is what you all call him to be. The ever persistent effort to get rid of him proves that he has become an eyesore for assholes used to lazy/corrupt/malua fever lifestle. Get a life nut cases. Only talk when you can even achieve half of what Honorable Reddy has. Ulukau sonacicilevu.

Looks like this "danda karo" is one of those Reddy's fan.
Fiji is full of Crooks

It could even be Reddy himself !!

Under any Court of Law this would be known as HEAR SAY EVIDENCE.

'The March of Folly' was penned by a Pullitzer Prize winning American historian: Barbara Tuchman. A copy is in the possession of at least one former Fiji PM, suitably signed. The word 'fool' derives from folly. Less strong than 'idiot' and derived from French. Think of 'folie de grandeur' for example. Plenty of that in evidence viz the depiction of Messrs Bala and D.S. Naidu seemingly considering the next move on the board? Nothing obtuse going on there, it would appear or merely kicking up the dust to obscure the view? Vive La Bagatelle!

Rajend naidu, kerekere enough mada of the irrelevant copy and paste articles.
5/6/2016 09:20:54 am
Irrelevant? What's irrelevant? Do the universities in Fiji give their staff the " right to participate in public debates about political and social issues and to express unpopular or controversial views"?

"The unexamined life is not worth living" - attributed to the Greek Philosopher Socrates by Plato (no less). We would surely agree with Socrates who was put to death for 'impiety' - for corrupting the youth who were enjoined to ask relevant questions. Our inability to ask such questions and to require answers has imperilled us existentially. We do see this surely?

@ Sarkar Maro.... Please read the articles by Rajend Naidu and learn from it. It's not a case of plagiarism but a classic research by a former student of La Strobe University drawing parallel situations.

Thank you for proving Godwin's law to be correct.

Quite correct about the Supergrass journalist, Fijileaks. A cabal of journalists –from all the shades of FBC and the Fiji Sun are all in it. They don’t work in the interests of imparting impartial information to the public but to their ‘benefactor superiors’ first, who then manipulates that information to make favorable events – which are then “news” in the making. But the journalist this time got caught. He became ‘the news’ himself. The supergrass Vijay Narayan stands exposed, untrustworthy, unethical, unprofessional, sneaky little stool pigeon of the AG Aiyaz. Shame on you!
Right Baath - Lekin Wrong Word.

It is Khaiyum’s considered opinion that the ‘right’ word – to describe his Topper Education Minister’s blowing of his own trumpet performance, in our Parliament – should have been ‘obtuse’ and not “a fool” as used by Hon. Draunidalo. It is just the unfortunate ‘wrong’ choice of the word which has earned Hon. Draunidalo a sad suspension from the House, otherwise we are all in agreement the Topper’s performance was fairly “obtuse”.

It might be easier to have toleration for reporter Vijay Narayan were he in the past to have turned his journalistic effort and focus towards substantive criminal matters put his way such as: rape of young children, severe violence in homes of wives and female de facto partners, date rape with use of drugs, large scale trafficking of marijuana, missing samples of cocaine in police custody, pedophiles from overseas hiding away and active in various determined locations. He and other reporters like him chose not to respond - for years on end. Disgraceful professional lapses were encountered. No surprise at current conduct - just more of the same indifference to moral and public duty decay. It is regrettable when names must be called but reporters are especially required to be dutiful and responsible towards civilians in a conflict environment. 'Travel the EXTRA MILE'. He is by no means the only one found wanting. The rest know who they are.

....."will this matter be taken further?". (CFL - Vijay Narayan). A most interesting and pregnant quote. Why not have applied this to 'the matter' of a Fiji Register for Sex Offenders" with appropriate regulations to ensure compliance and appropriate Corrections Housing of sentenced persons bearing in mind the long 'tenancy' in view. Would there be conducive opportunity for providing rehabilitation, education to tertiary level and beyond, last but by no means least, regime encouragement to make efforts at compensation to all their violated victims and their families. After all, the "damaged goods" they had left in their wake ought surely to have some value to their bereft next of kin? Sharia and other legal jurisdictions at least provide clearly without obfuscation for this. Those who write on crime for the Fiji media, who fully understand the importance of full and honest court-reporting for Nation Building must take these observations and suggestions seriously. You are remunerated for your work. Since 2008 a very few of us went into court at the pleading of injured, assaulted, raped, abducted, terrorised and home-invaded civilians. Often too afraid to give evidence and confused by the melee and intimidating throng, not knowing whom to trust. So much might have been done. So little comfort was given. Pro Bono Publico - a noble and neat Latin phrase. It needs a restoration, a thorough makeover. It needs a resurrection to Public Service which is where Cicero first placed it.
