|CHAUDHRY: Travel denied.|
His luck had to come to an end sooner or later and it seems it has.
Murmurs were heard the last time the Fiji Labour Party leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, was allowed by the courts to travel offshore.
If memory serves right, on that occasion it was medical treatment in Australia. Before then, a conference in Hawaii.
Chaudhry has seemingly pushed his luck asking to be allowed to travel to the US for his sister's 70th birthday.
Not mincing his words, Justice Daniel Goundar revealed the other day the court is concerned about the frequency of Chaudhry's travel, especially since he hasn't entered a plea to the charges of tax evasion filed against him last July.
Goundar also said that if Chaudhry can't figure out the allegations against him – the normal procedure is to enter a not guilty plea.
|TAKIVEIKATA: Outside court last year.|
The Naitasiri chief has been sentenced to life after being found guilty of inciting the 2000 rebellion.
As we said earlier, Takiveikata has been jailed but the biggest crim of the Pacific, Bainimarama, roams at large playing with electric guitars.
