THE PRIME MINISTER OF FIJI FOR HIRE:
RABUKA and KOROITAMANA must reveal the total cost of the week-long trip and also Baledrokadroka and Leung must do the same. They are off to hear submissions on GCC, the trip funded by Koroitamana.
*Meanwhile, we are yet to establish that Koroitamana's so-called Divine Fijian Group is a multi-million dollar empire and Rabuka opened DFG's multi-million dollar office in Santa Rosa, California
*What was so SPECIAL, DIVINE, AND SACRED that Rabuka and his entourage had to travel to Santa Rosa, California (allegedly on Koroitamana's expense), for Rabuka to open this 8 bedroom house at 331 Orange St, Santa Rosa, bought by Koroitamana and the family's Divine Fijians Home Care on 21 July 2022 and recorded on 29 July 2022 for $1million.
*We are trying to establish whether the house was bought with $1million cash or on mortgage, for those in the US property market expressed surprise that it lay vacant for a year if it was bought on mortgage.
*According to Santa Rosa estate agents, as a corporate entity, Divine Fijians Home Care would have had to put a deposit of $200,000 on the $1million property, and make huge monthly payments
*The house, previously rented by 'sober and rehab tenants trying to get their lives together', took a year to renovate, so i-Taukei Fijians living in Santa Rosa, can lease it for $1,200 a month, and upwards.
*There are unsubstantiated claims that Koroitamana will be appointed Honorary Consul in Santa Rosa, and the Coalition government will rent the recently renovated $1million property from Divine Fijians Care Inc
Fijileaks: The fact that the public is being told that the trip was a private visit, is not enough to quell concern in Fiji and abroad.
*Rabuka, his family, and friends have gained financially and materially from this 'private' visit.
*So is the public expected to believe that all this is being done purely out of goodwill and charity? Why now when he is Prime Minister, and not before? Obviously, the whole thing revolves particularly on the issue of personal integrity - more specifically Rabuka's integrity and Koroitamana's integrity - something sounds amiss and questionable.
We are reminded of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association's definition: -'Integrity - Members of Parliament must avoid placing themselves under any obligation to people or organisations that might try inappropriately to influence them in their work. They should not act or take decisions in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends. They must declare and resolve any interests and relationships.'
*The Sonoma County Assessor's Office, Santa Rosa, informed Fijileaks that 331 Orange St property was bought by Divine Fijians Home Care Inc who listed their address as 345 Lacrosse Ave, Santa Rosa, California.
*This means that DFHC moved from their old address, 6221 Montecito Blvd, Santa Rosa, the address they had provided to the California Secretary of State when they registered the company on 10 October 2017.
*Who owns 345 Lacrosse Ave, Santa Rosa? Again, the Sonoma County Assessor's Office informed Fijileaks that 345 Lacrosse Ave is owned by QIN CHUNLAN & LI CHUNLEI, Nighthawk Drive, Santa Rosa.
NEW ABODE: From 6221 Montecito Blvd to 345 Lacrosse Ave
The 345 Lacrosse Ave property, owned by QIN CHUNLAN & LI CHUNLEI, is a single family home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, built in 1968. Are the Koroitamanas', worth 'millions', renting the property?
