The Prime Minister has cautioned people not to make decisions that could lead them to the wrong side of the law, and reiterated that iTaukei rights are well protected in the constitution.

PM Voreqe Bainimarama was speaking to people in Ovalau, Levuka last night.

Speaking in the itaukei language, PM Bainimarama said:

You’ve heard that there have been sedition cases in the Western division. I was speaking in Tavua, and I told them, we should be careful of what we say and hear.

We should make our own judgement to whatever may come our way. If we make the wrong decision, we will end up on the wrong side of the law.

PM Bainimarama said the constitution protects the rights of the iTaukei, and the Fijian culture is intact and it helped build the GDP of the country.

I want to make it clear that I was part of the committee that reviewed the Constitution and all this talk that you hear from political parties are all lies.

When I was in the military, we saw what caused the upheaval in 200 and 2006 that led to lives being lost, and I want to tell you, the people of Ovalau that those incidences will never happen again.
