Fiji Military Should Realise Bainimarama Is Destroying The Country, Alexander Downer Says

LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Fiji’s military should realise that Commodore Frank Bainimarama’s regime was destroying their country, Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has said.

At the Apec conference in Sydney, Mr Downer gave strong hints that Commodore Bainimarama’s colleagues should push him aside because the man who took power in a coup last December was now “flailing around”.

His “military supporters will realise the situation” the country was now in. The return to martial law showed the job of running Fiji “was just too big a task” for him.
