September 14, 2015 1:20 am
Fiji as a nation needs to speak out publicly against acts of sedition and attempts to establish a so-called separate Christian state.
These were the sentiments of President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau while opening the new sitting of parliament this morning.
Ratu Epeli says any course of action against the 2013 Constitution and the will of the people – expressed through parliamentary elections – should not be tolerated and should be publicly condemned.
“If we fail to condemn these actions and such actions, if members of this August parliament fail to do so – it will cast doubts upon you. It will cast doubts about whether you believe in truly subscribe to the fundamental democratic principles upon which our modern State is founded.”
The President has labeled the actions of the minority group as an insurrection justified on religious and ethnic grounds to subvert the will of the people.
The Commander in Chief of the Fiji Military Forces also says the RFMF must
where-ever and when-ever support the police in bringing to justice those who want to destroy democracy and impose their will on others.
He says it’s the military’s constitutional duty as the ultimate guarantors of the security of Fiji.
