31. I make this urgent application as my stay application is still pending at the ILSC and to be decided by the Commissioner Mr Justice Paul Madigan especially as he has been seen after office hours with the officers of the Chief Registrar's office, fraternising and drinking with them, and to a reasonable and informed observer he would appear to be biased.

Presiding judge Justice Paul Madigan rejected the opinion of the three assessors earlier this afternoon and found 53-year-old Driti guilty of inciting to mutiny.
Driti is remanded in custody and he will return to court on the 10th of next month for mitigation and sentencing.
...
Justice Madigan said the request was to get information to discredit the Attorney General and to "bring him down".
He said that this coupled with the stated perception of Tagicakibau that whatever had been said by Driti as to removal or elimination, Tagicakibau had the impression that the Attorney General's life was to be taken.
Justice Madigan then stated that he finds that he does not believe Pita Driti's evidence.
He said that Driti was evasive, divertive, petulant and ungracious.
Justice Madigan said that Driti contradicted himself and gave evidence that was incapable of belief.
The judge further stated that he cannot believe that Driti knew nothing of any plans until Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara visited him in mid September.
Justice Madigan said that Driti was before that time, on his own admission, receiving official and unofficial intelligence reports on at least a weekly basis.
The presiding judge stated that Driti was taking active steps to impugn the reputation of the Attorney General and to bring about the downfall of Army Commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama's administration.
Justice Madigan highlighted that Driti was having the Attorney General tailed, making enquiries about his social connections and his income.
The judge added that Driti was calling into aid the head of a crack platoon of armed combat specialists Tevita Korovou.
Justice Madigan said whatever may have been said in the meeting between Driti and Korovou in 2010, Korovou told the court that he came away from it with the distinct impression that there was going to be another coup.
Judge Madigan said the fact given in evidence by Driti that on hearing of the plan he did nothing but stand back and consider it without reporting it to the Commander, does not serve him well.
The presiding judge said that thinking the plan may have been a set up did not lead to Driti to take appropriate steps to deal with a possible set up.
Justice Madigan said "Asking the purported architect of the plan: is this a set up? does nothing to create confidence in Driti's evidence".
He said the case against Pita Driti is overwhelming and convicted him of inciting to mutiny.
