I guess martial law is trendy and fashionable now. I did not realize that Fiji has been in a state of martial law since 2006. Hopefully, we do not see martial law being declared in other countries, because apparently you cannot be Methodist politician in Fiji without getting arrested.
At least 12 leaders of the Fiji Methodist Church and a paramount chief have been seized in the last couple of days, after trying to get around martial law by organising an annual church conference.
Dictator Voreqe Bainimarama, who overthrew democracy in a 2006 coup, this morning told Indian Auckland Radio Tarana that his regime would not tolerate any challenge from Methodist politicians.
