The courts in Fiji remain under the thumb of the mob in power. The same mob who imposed dictatorial rule in Fiji for 8 years. Fiji has returned to democracy but the dictator still holds sway . The court is there to do his bidding. The legal proceedings is just for show to show the world that there is rule of law in Fiji.

Question: How many Chinese Walls do the Shirley Park Supporters need to climb over or break through?, just as they get past one, another appears. Scandalous behaviour by some of the legal profession, the Master Piper plays the tune that they willingly dance to.

Let me explain the Shirley Park " re zoning " story. The gang who had grabbed power unlawfully in the country under the false pretence of cleaning up on corruption and bad governance very smartly got into bed with the same corrupt business class . This Shirley Park deal is evidence of one of the several the Bainimarama Khaiyum regime approved for their political backers. They had made an apriori decision to grant approval for the re zoning. The pretence of public consultation came only after public protest. And, they thought they could manage and manipulate to ride the protest but that did not happen. Conscientious citizens took the matter to court. Now the pretend democracy is showing its true form through the cynical manipulation of the court and legal process.

Having influential - that is powerful - politicians in their pocket is a " business art " the big business wallahs in Fiji as elsewhere have long cultivated. That businessman- politician connection remains alive and well under the Bainimarama government. No paradigm shift there!
