Get Rid Of Chaudhry - NFP Says

Issue No: 904 2 July 2001

The National Federation Party says that people in Fiji should "get rid" of Mahendra Chaudhry.

The Party's leader Harish Sharma told his party's meeting yesterday: "I suspect as the political debate heats up, Labour will say we [NFP] were behind the coup. What they should discuss is the suffering that people went through but they wont do that. A person who stays quiet on injustices creates a greater sin against this perpetrators".

Today's Fiji Times reports: "Although not naming anyone, his [Sharma's] target was deposed Prime Minister Mahendra Chaudhry. He also called on the sufferers of the political crisis to get rid of such leaders". Sharma is quoted: "One man alone can destroy a nation. If there's a man amongst us, we should get rid of him. I won't name him but I guess all of you know who am I referring to".

The NFP's call for getting rid of Chaudhry is an open and clear message to people to eliminate Chaudhry through possible assassination. The police department has not reacted to the threat.

Earlier Tupeni Baba, expelled from the Labour Party, had also hinted that Chaudhry could not be around at the next election. The Labour Party has lodged a complaint with the Police force on the statement. Baba was present at the NFP meeting yesterday. In 1999, the NFP had stated that if the Labour Party won the election, there will be a coup in the country. Many believe that the NFP had already planned to conspire to depose the elected government if Labour won the election. It is now known that many businessmen suspected of financing the terrorists are supporters of the NFP.

Meanwhile it is believed that a group of 4 soldiers have `disappeared' from the military barracks without any trace. Military officers suspect that the four are organising a camp for possible upheaval and politically motivated criminal activities leading up to the CCF court case and the possible election. It is believed that the military is baffled at the `disappearance' of the soldiers, and is trying to track them down.
