Mutiny Fiji soldier rescued by Tonga

May 14, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Manawatu Evening Standard

A top Fiji soldier facing mutiny charges has been "rescued" by the Tongan navy and taken to Nuku'alofa. Colonel Tevita Uluilakeba Mara, until recently commander of the Third Fiji Infantry Regiment, has now vowed to rid Fiji of the "hateful dictatorship" of Voreqe Bainimarama.

It has been over-due Mr Mara, that you and your people allow this Dictatorship Thick Head Commodore Bainimarama, and his puppet Self Righteousness Aiyaz Khayum to destroyed the treasure that your fore-fathers laboured in order that their children and grandchildren will harvest it. And now this Wee Tiny Aiyar Khayum with his cunning and ignorance attitude are beginning to make the firm and strong structure of Fiji people look like nothing.

You got the right people and place to protect you, May the people of Fiji and their children be soon free and enjoy themselves.

This man must be returned to Fiji, before the Gov/t of Fiji declares war on us. Tonga is a weak nation and can not stand up to Fiji.

Tonga better be very careful so as to not incur the wrath of the Fijian Navy who can shoot the 'VOEA Savea','VOEA Panga' & the 'VOEA Neiafu' & sink them to the bottom of the sea in 6 hours flat.

C'mon Fiji blow the Tongan Navy to smithereen & destroy the main flag-staff at Pangai. If not, we'll just hoist the Fijian colours there !

Its about time that the people of Fiji stands up for their right to vote and to look themselves in the proper way not via a Dictatorship who refused any democratic election till 2015....

In Fiji case they must ensure that they worked together with the so called Indo-FIjians otherwise there will be no end to all these coup etat...

Let Uluilakepa stays in Tonga for whenever he feels safe to go back to his own country..Infact he is just visiting his Tongan roots....

Bainimara said: "On behalf of the people of Fiji I urge the Tongan Royal Family, the Tongan prime minister, the government of the kingdom of Tonga and also the people of Tonga who I know cherish their inexplicable cultural, economic and political ties with Fiji to stop this conspiracy by a handful of self-interested individual."

Is he serious? Has he looked in the mirror lately? What a hypocrite. Bainimarama is Fiji's biggest thief, he's a lier, a bully, and a fraud.

The young Mara is safe and I can't see Tonga letting go a blood relative just to please a tyrant like Bainimarama.

actually, it won't happen because New Zealand and Australia. Yes, if it was heads up, Fiji would smoke Tonga in a heartbeat but not w/ out a big fight! But Fiji's regime is not too popular these days. It is unconstitutional and not recognized by most governments in the Pacific and the rest of the world. So yea, Fiji declares war on Tonga, they get phucced up by New Zealand and Australia.

For inexplicable reasons, Commodore Bainimarama, weakened by ill health, morally and intellectually bankrupt, is no more than Aiyaz Khayum's hand puppet," Mara says.

"The advice which we, as senior officers, had offered the commander in an attempt to soften the regime's approach to public dissent were seen by Khayum as a direct threat to his person and his megalomania is inspired entirely by the self importance of a lonely and inadequate man.

"Endowed with no leadership qualities and incapable of understanding the simplest principles of decency and respect even in a society that is grounded on such virtues, he is the sole architect of the cruelties which have sadly become common in our daily life."

Mara said when he was "rescued by the Tongan Navy I asked to be brought to Nuku'alofa where under the sure protection of King George's Government I shall be able to tell the truth, without fear of retribution, about the tragic oppression which stifles my beloved land.
Ad Feedback

"When this hateful dictatorship has been eradicated, all of us who once served it shall answer to the Fijian people for the part we played and I will gladly submit to their verdict."

So Colonel Mara, reckons that Fiji is run by a brutal dictatorship, and looks to King George of Tonga, as some sort of Democrat.
What a joke.
It looks like that in Fiji, there has been a falling out of thieves.
Our plastic king, who is currently a tourist in Hungary, is being kept informed. what BS

This is set up,there is no way our navy would have done this if it wasn't permitted and agreed to from the very top.
I just can't believe, this Colonel equates Tonga is some sort of democracy, rather than as we know it Tonga is the most corrupt nation in the South Pacific.
I love it where he says "When this hateful dictatorship has been eradicated, all of us who once served it shall answer to the Fijian people for the part we played and I will gladly submit to their verdict."
maybe he is a fortune teller predicting the future for all those in Tonga who have corruptly profited against the citizens of our country.
Maybe it's a forewarning of the future show trials that the People's Democratic government of Tonga will conduct, to prosecute on the grounds of complicity in the rape and bankruptcy of our country, of the corrupt elite and their camp followers.
all these grubs will undoubtedly find justice at the hands of the good citizens of Tonga.

I wouldn't rely on New Zealand or Australia coming to the aid of Tonga.

Hey, hey, hey, wait a minute Vinaka, Fiji's wrath had been gone for good, and never to come back to Fiji again. Fiji is a peaceful country and there are more people excess to education then people who don't.

But if the minority like the dictator Bainimarama wants to force his way to Tonga, then I can tell you that the former PM Sevele will have the most great opportunity to lead the great army of Tonga that he spent million of dollars to develop. That would be an action of appreciation for his failure to do the right things while he was in charge in the government. So his action will become a well known words known to all Tongan people, and it goes like this "ME'AFANA 'E NE HIKI M!M!'E NE PIHI" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Australia and NZ won't bother if Fiji goes ahead and crushes Tonga, reason being of so many people from these two country reside in Fiji, who can easily be taken hostage. The rightouse thing to do is for Tonga to hand over Mara to Fiji and let him prove himself in court or this diplomatic wrangle will continue and the only once to lose will be Tonga. Tonga is in no position to take of Fiji, let alone in military conflict but in its trade, infrustucture which is totally depended on Fiji.

it will take Fiji soldiers 6 hours to arrive in Tonga and it will take 10 hours for Tongan army to lay down their weapons. Tongans million dollars worth of weapons won't be enough to match the Chinese made more advanced and sophisicated killing machines that China is arming Fiji with, so please wars aside and let the right thing happen.

Obviously you don't know your geography. There's 600 miles of open sea between Tonga and Fiji. Fiji Navy has only a few tiny patrol boats that they use to oppress the fishermen of villages that oppose the military regime. It would take them, in ideal conditions, several days to sail to Tonga and the few dozen soldiers on board would be nearly dead from spewing their guts out.

it wouldn't be wise of bainimarama to make demands of the king and it wouldn't be smart of Fiji to storm Tonga..we all know Fijians are the biggest cowards in the region..they'd be dead long before they make landfall on tongan soil..
