*Sadly, while the COUPIST, hiding behind IMMUNITY, has conned and moved on and now wants to become Prime Minister under his PAP, Nawaikula carried on with his nationalistic chest-beating, portraying himself as the torch-bearer of Rabuka's bogus indigenous rights while dipping into the Parliamentary Allowance as a Member of Parliament - a replay of the collapsed National Bank of Fiji
*As a legal adviser with the NLTB, he allegedly oversaw after the 1987 coups the eviction of hundreds of Indo-Fijian sugarcane farmers from their leased lands, many not receiving any compensation, including one, from court records, losing her house worth $40,000 after her husband had died, and the lease was not transferred to her
* Our Editor-in-Chief's aunt and her husband were evicted after nearly
57 years from their family farm in Rakiraki. They had to leave their life's possessions, including the house, animals, tractors and the sugar canes still standing, and were forced to emigrate to Australia, where the aunt's husband, a hardy sun-scotched farmer all his life, died of depression.
*The aunt is nearly turning 100 but still crying and cursing the evil
Rabuka-Nawaikula Axis, saying Australia is worse than 'prison'.
(Fijileaks: Our Aunt died two years ago, also in Sydney, Australia, never ever seeing her beloved Fiji or her family farm)
*We will not hear Rabuka's Ponga Professor buddy calling for compensation on behalf of those who were forcibly evicted or their ashes brought back to Fiji and buried in their Fijian Motherland.
* This week, we saw him screaming, 'Political Gimmick,1987 Coups.'
*If Nawaikula is JAILED, there will be no TEARS in hundreds of Indo-Fijian households, many now squatters in the Suva-Nasinu corridor
HE was given a free and fair trial, unlike hundreds of evicted farmers
KARMA IS REALLY A BITCH, DEAR OLD (ONCE) FRIEND!
