Fiji Human Right Commission treads where ours fears

The Fiji Human Rights Commission has commented on our Dear Leaders comments about the coup.

Full report here

I complained to our Human Rights Commission about Clark’s and others of her government denigrating the Exclusive Brethren. The HRC wrote me a three page letter full of weasel words clearly drafted by H2 or someone else of that ilk.

The Fiji Human Rights Commission fortuantely does not fear our Prime Minister like our own civil service. They had this to say about Dear Leader and her statements about the coup leader when she told reporters Mr Bainimarama was "severely deluded" and had "ripped up Fiji’s constitution and chucked it out the window".
[quote]"These statements were not only incorrect, they were unnecessary and potentially dangerous for the safety of the people of Fiji,"[/quote]

The FHRC said New Zealand’s reactions and interventionist policy had fostered the deterioration of human rights in Fiji since the coup.

The FHRC was set up under Fiji’s constitution and has endorsed the coup in which military head Voreqe Bainimarama dumped President Josefa Iloilo and Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase.

[quote]The Qarase Government was involved in massive violations of human rights in Fiji, constituting crimes against humanity, and made serious attempts to impose ethnic cleansing tactics in Fiji, What the Commander overthrew on December 2006 was not the legitimate and democratically elected Government of Fiji.[/quote]

The FHRC also gives Marian Hobbs a good shellacking;

[quote]last year’s March elections were conducted with serious deficiencies in the system. International observers – including a 10 strong team from New Zealand led by Wellington MP Marion Hobbs – were present but the commission said they arrived shortly before the elections and left shortly after. She said the observer groups were partisan and ill-informed and were generally oblivious to constitutional requirements.[/quote]

Now Labour and others, shut the fuck up and let Fiji get on with it with Bainimaramas cleaning up after "The Qarase Government which was involved in massive violations of human rights in Fiji, constituting crimes against humanity, and made serious attempts to impose ethnic cleansing tactics in Fiji",

Interestingly the FHRC makes the following statement which could almost fit perfectly into New Zealand’s political landscape.

[quote]"During its 2001-2005 term, the Qarase Government also initiated its ethnic propaganda programme through hate speeches and racially derogatory statements made by parliamentarians…. These were justified by the Prime Minister himself as freedom of speech and opinion."[/quote]

I agree with Adolf at Sir Humphreys, Rodney Hide and John Key should consider adopting the slogan: ‘We’re going to have a ‘clean up’ here’ as they go about removing the corrupt, cancerous and corrosive Clark.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
