Rabuka was involved in 2000 coup: Bainimarama

Prime Minister and FijiFirst Leader Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday claimed during the Party’s rally in Laqere that People’s Alliance Leader Sitiveni Rabuka was involved in George Speight’s 2000 coup.

Bainimarama told voters to be wary and careful of Rabuka and his Party.

“Rabuka is showing himself now that he took part in 2000.”

He said he had read in a newspaper the discussion about releasing George Speight.

However, Rabuka has denied his involvement in the coup and said he never mentioned George Speight but was talking about everyone who has been incarcerated has the right to have their case heard by the Mercy Commission.

“It shows that Bainimarama lacked depth, and there was no reason for him to think that or say that. The prerogative of the Mercy Commission did not work like that… this was what I said,” Rabuka said.
