SUVA, Fiji Islands (April 29, 1999 – Radio Australia)---A calls for Fiji Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka to name those who, he says, manipulated him during the two military coups of 1987, have been heard.

In an apology to Indian Fijians last weekend, Mr. Rabuka admitted he created fear in the Indo-Fijian community when he carried out the military coups.

He also said he had been manipulated by people who have now deserted him.

Miles Johnson, President of the Fiji Law Society during the coups, says Mr. Rabuka must now name those people if he is to have any credibility:

"If the other people were in fact a bunch of hard-core Fijian chiefs, and you know, that is the general sort of feeling, that's one of the things that's going to influence the Indians. How honest to god any land deals are going to be made."
