Suva (Fiji), Apr.17 (ANI): Fiji dictator Colonel Voreqe Bainimarama has claimed that his new "legal order" is the future of the island nation.
In an extraordinary speech to civil servants this morning, stuff.co.nz quoted him a saying that with the abrogation of the constitution "a new Legal Order has been created.
He said: "A new Legal Order means there is no longer the old. There is no need to speculate as to what happened, how it happened, what should have happened or what should not have happened. What is, is now, and the future."
He said his government is not an interim one or a caretaker one - it is in office until September 2014.
Bainimarama told a gathering of civil servants that there was "down-right abuse" in the civil service and he would clean it up.
"As a first up, from next week, all government vehicles being driven after hours will need to carry permits."
Police and soldiers would check government vehicles.
Meanwhile Samoa's Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele said Bainimarama was a puppet master and his "favourite hand puppet" is President Josefa Iloilo.
"The whole thing is a political charade and the whole world is watching. Nobody is fooled and no one is laughing. Frank is only fooling himself. He should go back to the barracks and do what he nows best "which is throwing salutes, beating drums and organizing marching parades," he said. (ANI)
