Right on schedule

No surprises about the interim government train today. Right on time and with the correct number of carriages.

Chaudhry or the Chodopu$$ has been cleared of tax evasion. He is clean. He was cleared by an independent team no less. Two Australians and a Fijian.


The so called transparency and openess which this farce is supposed to operate with is just a pipe dream. This whole investigation was done behind closed doors, appointments were made with secrecy and the team left Fiji without any scrutiny whatsoever.

Of course, conflicts of interest abound. Khaiyum you bloody tool. Did you really think people were stupid enough to believe the appointees were independents.

Lets see:

1) Cowley – Minter Ellison. You have a fail right there. You worked with the prick. Khaiyum even met with him in Fiji over dinner. Strange bedfellows. Hardly what I call independent.

2) Postle – BDO Kendalls. Another fail. Got Nur Bano Ali? I guess that was overlooked as well.

3) Vakatale – no explanation is required here. Bloody turncoat.

The investigation was only for a few days. How can a team pore over years of tax records, income statements and declarations in such a short period of time? I guess they did not. Or the investigation was begun before that when the outcome was ALREADY DECIDED.

Nuff said.

On a more important note, how much did you pay these people for their services. More taxpayer money going down the tube.

I think I’m going to stop paying my tax from now on. My reasons are below:

1) Funding the extravagant and wasteful activities of the interim government.

2) Chaudhry didn’t pay his. Why should I?

    If this iIG junta is deemed illegal, then its expediture of public money is then surely illegal. Jeez some people are going to have a huge bill at the end of it all.

    When one reads the Report prepared by this “independent” inquiry team, one cannot help but notice two important points:-

    (i) Taufa Vakatale’s signature at the end of the document, with greatest respect to the good lady, is almost illegible giving one the impression that it was signed by someone of very advanced age incapable of holding the pen on her own – raising questions about her mental capacity to sit in and understand the full nature of what was being investigated;

    (ii) The writers of the Report freely admit that Chaudhry received much $$$ in his personal offshore bank accounts, but they did not see it fit to question where that money came from, or indeed what it was for. No one gives that much $$$ for nothing.

    The interim regime kept the inquiry team on a tight leash with a very specific Terms of Reference tailored to draw attention away from the sources and purpose of these funds but unfortunately for the writers of the Report, the reports draws attention to this important by its inexplicable lack of attention to it.

    In my view thefrefore, although Chaudhry has managed to dodge this particular bullet, he has inadvertently put himself squarely in the headlights of an oncoming train of criticism about the source of those mysterious funds.

    With any luck, Chaudhry will not surivive the next round.
