WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, April 9) - The Fiji government is
reported to be concerned about national security after receiving intelligence
information that certain elements want to destabilize the government.

Radio Fiji said while details of the destabilization plans are
sketchy, yesterday’s cabinet meeting was dominated by discussions on national
security.

It said the cabinet is taking the intelligence information
seriously.

Earlier reports had said people were planning destabilization
during the South Pacific Games in late June and security was being tightened.

Meanwhile, Fiji’s opposition leader, Mick Beddoes, said noone
connected with the coup should be spared prosecution.

Beddoes welcomed the military commander Commodore Frank
Bainimarama’s decision to charge everyone who had a hand in the overthrow of
the Chaudhry government.
