Description
Colonel Bainimarama, the illegal president of Fiji, is speaking on the phone. He says 'NZ has got their Maori head back from France... so I want our army head back from Tonga..' The person he is speaking to asks if he means 'Lt. Col. Mara' and Bainimarama says 'Just his head will do too!!' Context - Lieutenant-Colonel Ratu Tevita Mara has fled Fiji and taken refuge in Tonga. Bainimarama wants him extradited. Lt Col Mara was charged a week ago with mutiny and accused of trying to overthrow the Bainimarama regime. The comment about the 'head' refers to the mummified, tattooed head of an ancient Maori warrior that is being returned to New Zealand after being held at the Museum of Rouen in northern France since 1875. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
