Party, Cash In Anti-Govt Plot?

A political party and a money trail traced to Australia are part of investigations into an alleged plot to destabilise Government, says the Police chief.

Acting Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho  said yesterday he could not release the name of the political party because of the on-going investigations.

On the money trail, he said he wondered if  people who contributed in Australia knew the money was not going for a religious purpose. He said they were checking all the possible leads.

His remarks came  in the wake of a reported  Sunday night burglary at a Lautoka internet café, where the so-called destabilisation plan was found in a computer earlier.

The owner of the internet café, Rajneel Singh, is recovering from injuries.

He alleged these were inflicted by Police after he found the plan and sent copies to Brigadier-General Qiliho and Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. He alleged this was the reason why some Police officers assaulted him.

Yesterday he expressed fear for his family’s lives claiming there were people out to get him. He said he had received death threats on the phone by people who wanted him to drop the case. He said he  wanted  protection.

Brigadier-General Qiliho assured Mr Singh that he would be offered protection. Mr Singh is married with a four-month-old baby boy.              Brigadier-General Qiliho said this was not the first time the internet shop had been burgled.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said he was surprised to learn that a doctor had refused to examine Mr Singh because of his political beliefs. He said that was in violation of a doctor’s ethical and professional pledge to see all patients irrespective of their background.

He said he would lodge a complaint against the doctor to the appropriate authorities. He said because of the continuing pain in Mr Singh’s leg he wanted to seek further medical treatment in Australia. The doctor’s report was required for Mr Singh to get a visa.
