SODELPA MP Mosese Bulitavu says Henry Brown is a coward and he must return to Fiji if he has some b***s. He must learn the meaning of courage and try to conquer his fear. "We went through the abuse and threats under his custody but we used our mental strength and resilience to overcome it. He was suppose to protect us but became our oppressor but I have forgiven him even after he denied Jagath's [Karunaratne] claim in court. He [Brown] now has a taste of his own medicine and hope from now he will not treat others like s**t."
He told Chief Magistrate, Usaia Ratuvili that Brown had said to his officers that when his beaten up black and blue, Karunaratne would not know what to do. Karunaratne further claimed in court that Brown had also said that he will be hung upside-down by a telephone wire and he will not be sitting as he is sitting. DPP lawyer Lisiate Fotofili then put to Karunarate that he has fabricated these things but Karunaratne maintained that he was threatened and intimidated by Police officers while in custody.
