in 2006, involving an ongoing public feud between the government and military. Tensions took a dramatic turn for the worse on 11–13 January, with reports of unusual troop and naval deployments, crisis meetings of the National Security Council, and the erection of police roadblocks. Rumours also swept the capital that the Military Commander, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, had been arrested by the police on government orders, but the Military denied this. The crisis came to a head on the 13th, with Bainimarama announcing that he had dismissed the Acting Land Force Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Jone Baledrokadroka for insubordination

Pita Driti
Lieutenant Colonel Pita Driti is a Fijian soldier. As of January 2007, he was serving as the Land Force Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, the third most senior position in the Military. He played a prominent role in the events that led to and followed the military coup of 5 December 2006. Driti came to international attention on 6 November 2006, when he publicly accused the Qarase government of smuggling 400 kilograms of Australian arms and mercenaries into Fiji, and called on then-Commissioner of Police Andrew Hughes (an Australian) to answer for it. In 2010, Driti was dismissed from his military command, arrested, and charged with inciting mutiny. On 13 December 2013, Radio Australia reported that he had been convicted and sentenced to five years' imprisonment, with a minimum non-parole period of four years by Judge Paul Madigan.[1][2] References[edit]^ Naryan, Vijay

Teleni had been strident in his repeated calls for the government of Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase to resign, and on 1 November 2006 openly flouted government and police directives by ordering the seizure of a shipment of seven tons of ammunition, which Police Commissioner Andrew Hughes had refused to release

Common Law Wife
Common-law marriage, also known as sui iuris marriage, informal marriage, marriage by habit and repute, or marriage in fact, is a legal framework in a limited number of jurisdictions where a couple is legally considered married, without that couple having formally registered their relation as a civil or religious marriage. The original concept of a "common-law marriage" is a marriage that is considered valid by both partners, but has not been formally recorded with a state or religious registry, or celebrated in a formal religious service. In effect, the act of the couple representing themselves to others as being married, and organizing their relation as if they were married, acts as the evidence that they are married. The term common-law marriage has wide informal use, often to denote relations that are not legally recognized as common-law marriages
