Fiji's military commander says attorney general has lost focus in life

7:24 am on 4 June 2005

Fiji's military commander has attacked the attorney general, Qoriniasi Bale, saying he has lost his focus in life.

Fiji TV says the military's disappointment stems from Mr Bale's call on the public service commission and the ministry for home affairs to investigate what uniformed military officers were doing in parliament this week.

The military had earlier said the officers were there to show their opposition to the Reconciliation and Unity Bill drawn up by Mr Bale and monitor what MPs were saying about it.

But an angry Commodore Bainimarama has told Fiji TV Mr Bale should go take a bungee jump because the shock at the end of the drop might bring his focus back.
