Fiji: another beating

On Friday, the Fijian military detained businessman Ulaiasi Taoi. They took his clothes, threw him in a cell, and kicked the shit out of him. Why? Because he was suspected of being a blogger who said nasty things about the regime. Because Cthulhu forbid that people might be allowed to criticise the government, judge its actions, or find them wanting. Why, then there might be... democracy!


Taoi has reportedly been detained again. I guess the military aren't happy that he talked about the abuse they dished out.
