PROFIT BEFORE PRIDE: ShirleyParkGate exposes the putrid corruption and collusion between businessmen and the Bala-Khaiyum nexus, with Fiji Times diluting pro-Shirley Park campaigners Letters to the Editor!

Instead a new design for the proposed hotel is as shown and taken off Romit Meghji's own Facebook page, and now stands almost several storeys tall
