Fiji Repatriation Call

The Fiji High Commission Office in Papua New Guinea will soon hold talks with the Autonomous Bougainville Government, the repatriation of one Fijian, still residing in Tonu District, South Bougainville, with self-proclaimed king, Noah Musingku.

High Commissioner, Romanu Tikotikoca, says it has been a long battle to communicate with Maloni Namoli and Mr Musingku.


The last remaining Fijian Maloni Namoli, decided to stay back with Noah Musingku, in his hideout in the disputed territory of the Kingdom of Papala, Tonu City.


Mr Namoli was one the nine Fiji personnel believed to be mercenaries who illegally entered Bougainville, arming and training private militia, in Tonu, South Bougainville, on Musingku’s invitation, who ran a failed pyramid scheme that scammed many islanders.


High Commissioner, Romanu Tikotikoca in an interview, told EMTV News, he plans to discuss with government authorities, strategies that can help to repatriate Mr Namoli.


The others were repatriated out of Bougainville in 2009, while Namoli remained, as he was lured to Bougainville on false promises by Mr Musingku.


The National and Autonomous Bougainville Government, including the Fiji Government, expressed serious concern about the men's activities, fearing that such moves by Musingku and his so called monarchy, would hinder the Bougainville Peace Agreement.


The Fiji High Commissioner appealed to all Fijians to abide by PNG laws.


Early this year, Bougainville Assistant Police Commissioner, Paul Kamuai commented on the similar matter.


Mr Kamuai said several times, he has written to Mr Musingku to make his way to Buka for an open discussion, but has failed. He will not give up.
