DEADLINE COMES, GOES, BAINIMARAMA AT FOOTBALL GAME

SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, Dec. 1) – A midday deadline for the Fiji Government to submit in full to the army's demands has come and gone with no word on how the military intends to proceed with its "clean-up campaign".

Army commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama held an early morning meeting at Government House with President Ratui Josefa Iloilo.

There is no word on the extent of their discussions from the President's Office or army headquarters.

Commodore Bainimara has meanwhile gone to the Post Fiji Stadium to watch his Army team take on Police in a soccer match as part of the annual Sukuna Bowl competition.

The annual event on the disciplined services calendar ends this afternoon with the much-anticipated rugby union clash between the services.

Commodore Bainimarama threatened to remove the Government in a "peaceful transition" if his demands were not met.
