SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, Oct. 9) – Fiji's army commander, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, says the military will be watchdog of all Government policies from now on.

Bainimarama said someone needs to stand up and make a statement against the government's corrupt practices.

"We're frustrated about what's happening in Fiji," he said at a press conference today. "We have been speaking out on all these issues but it seems no one is taking heed. So we've taken it on ourselves to be the watchdog of this nation."

The prime minister has to listen to what the RFMF has to say, he said.

The army, Bainimarama added, is tired of seeing people implicated in the 2000 coup formulating contentious bills like the Qoliqoli Bill and the Reconciliation Bill.
