One of Australia's top-paid public servants has been accused of trying to pull the strings of senior federal politicians.  Texts from Mike Pezzullo, the secretary of Home Affairs, to a Liberal Party powerbroker appear to show a bureaucrat who wasn't adhering to his duty of impartiality. The messages show a senior public servant bad-mouthing ministers, attacking political decisions and attempting to influence portfolio appointments.  Today, columnist for The Saturday Paper Paul Bongiorno, on how Pezzullo's secret correspondence reveals a bigger problem in the public service, which could undermine our democracy.  Socials: Stay in touch with us on Twitter and Instagram Guest: Columnist for The Saturday Paper, Paul Bongiorno.

Aux îles Salomon, les fractures de la percée chinoise dans le Pacifique

Grand reportage

Septième et dernier épisode de notre série « nouvelles routes de la soie, dix ans après ». Le projet phare de Xi Jinping s'étend dans le Pacifique et vient bousculer l'échiquier géopolitique de la région. Aux Îles Salomon, le rapprochement avec la Chine, lancé sans concertation par le Premier ministre Manasseh Sogavare, divise la classe politique et électrise la société sur fond d'accusations de corruption.   Ce 17 juillet 2023, Manasseh Sogavare revient de Chine, où les pontes du Parti communiste lui ont déroulé le tapis rouge. Le chef du gouvernement salomonais a vu Xi Jinping, le président chinois, et signé neuf nouveaux accords avec Pékin en matière d'agriculture, d'aviation, de tourisme, de commerce, de climat et de maintien de l'ordre. A ses yeux, c'est un triomphe, et il ne cache plus ses ambitions : il veut aligner la stratégie de développement des Salomon sur les « nouvelles routes de la soie ». Dès sa descente d'avion, il organise une conférence de presse à l'aéroport d'Honiara et se félicite devant les journalistes d'un déplacement « extrêmement fructueux ». Mais très vite, l'exercice d'autocélébration tourne au règlement de compte et les mots du Premier ministre claquent comme des gifles, qu'il lâche mâchoires serrées, droit dans son costume sombre. « Permettez-moi de répondre aux articles que j'ai pu lire, relayant l'inquiétude de l'Australie et des États-Unis à propos de la coopération policière entre la Chine et les îles Salomon. Cette diplomatie réductrice et coercitive qui consiste à cibler nos relations avec Pékin n'est rien d'autre qu'une forme d'interférence dans nos affaires internes. La Chine n'est pas en train d'envahir ou de coloniser un État étranger. La Chine subvient à nos besoins en matière de maintien de l'ordre et nous sommes en demande de solutions nouvelles à l'ensemble de nos problèmes. Depuis 45 ans, nous sommes laissés de côté et traités comme la basse-cour de nos voisins. Nous devons briser le joug et les chaînes de la dépendance. » Au sens de l'ONU, les Salomon font partie des pays les moins avancés, au même titre que l'Afghanistan, Haïti ou le Soudan. Le produit intérieur brut plafonne à 2 200 dollars par habitant et la population, en majorité rurale et sous-éduquée, vit sous perfusion étrangère depuis l'indépendance concédée par la tutelle britannique en 1978. Incapable de boucler son budget, l'archipel a très vite eu besoin de soutien économique et s'est tourné vers son grand voisin, l'Australie, qui reste un partenaire incontournable. Entre 2009 et 2019, les programmes d'assistance australiens ont encore représenté 65% de l'aide internationale versée aux îles Salomon. Pendant des années, les Australiens ont mis la main au pot sans arrière-pensée, pensant n'avoir rien à craindre de la région Pacifique, une zone sans enjeux stratégiques (« strategically benign », disait-on à Canberra), considérée comme stable, neutre et isolée, que l'Australie chapeautait de loin, sous le regard bienveillant de son vieil allié américain. Avant l'an dernier, elle n'avait jamais négocié de traités de défense bilatéraux avec les micro-États du voisinage, comme les Fidji ou les Tonga, car la nécessité d'un filet de sécurité fabriqué maille par maille au nord des côtes australiennes, ne s'était jamais fait sentir.Présence militaire chinoise à trois heures de Brisbane ?A tort. La percée de la Chine aux Salomon fait désormais planer l'hypothèse d'une présence militaire chinoise à trois heures de vol de Brisbane et vient contrarier l'idée d'un espace indopacifique « libre et ouvert » promue par l'administration Biden. Humiliée dans son jardin, en pleine guerre d'influence avec les autorités chinoises, la Maison Blanche s'est dépêchée de rouvrir début 2023 son ambassade des États-Unis à Honiara, après 30 ans d'absence.  Quant au gouvernement australien, il s'est appuyé sur une recette bien connue : accroître, en désespoir de cause, la coopération avec l'exécutif salomonais pour limiter l'emprise de Pékin sur les domaines régaliens. Depuis que les Salomon avaient appelé l'Australie au secours au début des années 2000 pour rétablir l'ordre après plusieurs épisodes de tensions ethniques et de conflits fonciers,  l'entraînement des policiers faisait partie de son pré carré. Et les omniprésents 4x4 à l'emblème kangourou remplis de formateurs « aussie » s'étaient fondus dans le paysage.  Mais la lune de miel entre la Chine et l'équipe Sogavare a grippé la mécanique et l'atmosphère bon enfant du « Police Open Day ». La journée portes ouvertes des forces de l'ordre qui se tient chaque année en plein air dans la capitale, n'est plus tout à fait la même. Sans doute à cause de l'énorme canon à eau anti-émeute offert par les autorités chinoises, qui trône au milieu du pré. « Bien sûr, on a de l'équipement chinois, nous confie Anseto Maeai, un agent de la Police Response Team, devant son stand d'exposition. Ils nous ont donné des matraques télescopiques, des pinces d'immobilisation, et ici, devant vous, il y a les boucliers tactiques financés par l'Australie et des ensembles balistiques. La police australienne nous aide toujours, dans le cadre de la SIAF, la Force internationale d'assistance à la sécurité. Pour le reste, vous savez, on ne peut pas se permettre de refuser de l'aide, on prend tout ce qu'on nous offre. J'ai moi-même suivi la formation au tir avec les policiers chinois, qui a commencé l'an dernier. C'est assez proche de ce que l'on faisait déjà avec les Australiens, sauf que les Chinois ont leurs propres méthodes d'enseignement, ce n'est pas toujours facile. Avec les Australiens, on peut interagir. Avec la Chine, ça passe par des traducteurs ». La commissaire-adjointe qui prend la parole sur scène ce jour-là dans son uniforme de gala se nomme Evelyn Thugea. Elle a la particularité d'avoir organisé l'événement, censé renouer le lien entre la police et les citoyens, et d'avoir passé un mois en Chine dans le cadre d'un séminaire de formation destiné aux officiers. La question est simple : quelle est exactement l'étendue des services offerts par la police chinoise à son homologue salomonaise depuis la signature de leur protocole d'entente ? « Nous sommes organisés en différents services, avec plusieurs directions. Chaque direction de la police travaille avec différents partenaires étrangers et je ne ferai aucun commentaire là-dessus, car je ne travaille pas directement avec chacune de ces directions. » OpacitéUne fois de plus, les Salomon refusent de rendre public un texte ultra-sensible signé avec Pékin, dont le contenu alimente les pires fantasmes. « Imaginez que des policiers chinois soient appelés à encadrer les prochaines élections où Sogavare joue sa peau, nous glisse un diplomate occidental en poste à Honiara. Quelles garanties de sincérité pour le scrutin ? » La même opacité avait entouré l'accord de sécurité conclu en 2022. Un document explosif, dont seule une version provisoire circule sur les réseaux sociaux, selon laquelle les îles Salomon pourront faire appel à des forces armées chinoises et autoriseront leurs navires à stationner dans l'archipel. Le Premier ministre a beau nier toute militarisation rampante et promettre à la communauté internationale que la Chine n'est pas là pour ça, personne n'est en mesure de le vérifier. Pas même le patron de l'opposition, Matthew Wale, qui s'y est cassé les dents lorsqu'il a demandé des explications officielles. « Chez nous, l'exécutif peut signer des traités internationaux sans passer par le Parlement, il n'a aucune obligation de communiquer avec les élus. C'est un système très particulier, qui n'avait jamais posé problème auparavant. Mais il en pose depuis cet accord de sécurité signé avec la Chine l'an dernier, qui a rendu l'Australie et les États-Unis très nerveux et qui nous place au beau milieu des rivalités régionales. Personne ne sait ce que contient ce texte ni quels seront ses effets. » « En réalité, moins le Premier ministre fait preuve de transparence à propos de ces accords, plus cela provoque d'hostilité, estime Matthew Wale. C'est contreproductif, à la fois de la part du gouvernement et de la part des Chinois, alors qu'il y a de la place pour la Chine. Il y a ce sentiment dans la population que si des pays comme l'Australie, les États-Unis ou la France font copain-copain avec Pékin pour des raisons commerciales et profitent de l'argent chinois, pourquoi pas nous ? Ce qui est important, c'est la façon dont on mène cette relation, et la transparence doit en être un élément primordial. » « Cadeau d'anniversaire pour Pékin »Le péché originel, c'est la bascule qui s'est produite en septembre 2019, quand Manasseh Sogavare a décidé d'établir des relations diplomatiques avec la Chine au détriment de Taïwan, l'allié historique des îles Salomon. Du jour au lendemain, sans explication, le gouvernement salomonais a enterré trois décennies de coopération avec les autorités taïwanaises et fait un choix précipité, clivant, voire suspect, selon le député Peter Kenilorea Jr, qui y voit une manipulation grossière de l'appareil politique. « Cela faisait 36 ans que nous étions du côté de Taïwan, regrette l'élu. Et pour beaucoup de gens, Taïwan n'avait rien fait de mal, rien qui justifiait d'être jeté dehors. Par ailleurs, c'est un sujet qui n'avait jamais été abordé pendant les dernières élections. Délaisser Taïwan au profit de la Chine ? Personne n'avait fait campagne sur ce thème. Pourtant, dès son arrivée au pouvoir, c'est devenu la priorité du gouvernement et cela a laissé bon nombre d'électeurs perplexes. Dans la phase qui a précédé le scrutin, la Chine poussait de manière très agressive et je pense que des promesses ont été faites en coulisses. Certains groupes politiques ont dû s'engager à reconnaître la Chine s'ils gagnaient les élections. » « Pour moi, soutient Peter Kenilorea Jr, c'est devenu évident à la lecture de leur première recommandation : il fallait à tout prix passer de Taïwan à Pékin avant le 1er octobre 2019, parce que le 1er octobre coïncidait avec les 70 ans de la Chine communiste fondée par Mao en 1949. Absolument aucun Salomonais n'aurait pu écrire ça, c'est sorti de nulle part. Et là, j'ai compris que la reconnaissance était juste un pur cadeau d'anniversaire pour Pékin. » Ce que cet ancien cadre des Nations unies suggère avec ses mots choisis, Ruth Liloqula nous le confirme au bazooka entre deux conférences dans un hôtel du centre-ville. D'après cette figure de la société civile salomonaise, plusieurs fois primée pour son combat contre la corruption et représentante aux îles Salomon de l'ONG Transparency International, le chef du gouvernement s'est laissé acheter par le régime chinois. « La Chine fournit de l'argent liquide pour consolider le parti de Sogavare, accuse-t-elle. 250 000 dollars par tête. J'ai vu de mes propres yeux la liste contresignée par le Premier ministre stipulant qui devait être payé pour survivre à la motion de censure déposée contre lui en 2021. 250 000 dollars pour chaque membre du Parlement prêt à soutenir son action. Aujourd'hui, la plupart de ces élus font partie du gouvernement. Tout le monde en parle mais il va falloir que quelqu'un se lève et s'engage à aller jusqu'au bout. Or, ceux qui détiennent ces informations et pourraient servir de témoins crédibles ne sont pas prêts à y aller, parce que s'ils le font, ils perdront leur emploi. » Manasseh Sogavare n'a pas souhaité nous recevoir, mais son directeur de la Communication, George Herming, nous accueille au siège de l'exécutif à Honiara. Selon lui, cette liste n'a jamais existé et le système de pots-de-vin dont tout le monde parle est une invention de l'opposition. « On attend toujours des preuves concrètes. Ces accusations ont toujours été proférées pour des raisons politiques par des personnes opposées à la ligne du gouvernement. Si vous avez la preuve que la Chine nous soudoie ou a soudoyé des députés afin d'acheter leur vote, je vous en prie, levez-vous et portez plainte auprès des autorités compétentes, afin que le personnel corrompu soit poursuivi et condamné. Jusqu'ici personne n'a porté plainte, personne n'a d'éléments montrant que telle ou telle personne a reçu telle ou telle somme d'argent. Ce ne sont que des mots, sans aucune preuve tangible ». Émeutes et communauté chinoise traumatiséeInvérifiable, impossible de suivre la trace d'une valise de billets, mais ces rumeurs et ce climat délétère ont fait des dégâts bien réels au mois de novembre 2021, quand des émeutes ont éclaté à Honiara. Les manifestants ont envahi le Parlement, incendié un commissariat de police et débarqué dans le quartier de Chinatown, qu'ils ont réduit en cendres. L'explosion de violence a fait trois morts et traumatisé la communauté chinoise. Dix-huit mois plus tard, sous couvert d'anonymat, un commerçant que nous surnommerons M. Chan accepte de nous emmener sur place, dans ce quartier chinois d'Honiara qui ne comprend qu'une seule artère, désormais déserte, où les bâtiments noircis et éventrés ont à peine été nettoyés. Ses ancêtres arrivés de Chine il y a plusieurs générations avaient fondé leur magasin ici après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Tout a brûlé, y compris les souvenirs de famille. Entre deux soupirs fatalistes, M. Chan souffle qu'il se bat toujours contre un syndrome de stress post-traumatique. « Il n'y a rien plus à voir. C'était un vieux magasin en bois des années 1950. Le jour des émeutes, des amis m'ont prévenu, ils m'ont envoyé la vidéo. Les gars ont mis le feu à ce magasin-là, ça s'est propagé à côté et c'est venu jusqu'au nôtre. Aux Salomon, les gens utilisent avant tout les manifs pour casser, pour voler ou pour piller. La plupart de ces émeutiers n'étaient pas de vrais manifestants, ils se sont juste dit que c'était l'occasion de piquer des trucs. Le prétexte, c'est "on n'est pas d'accord avec la politique du gouvernement", etc. Mais le plus stupide là-dedans, je vous le pose là : qui les a élus, ces politiciens ? Ce ne sont pas les Chinois qui ont voté pour eux. » Les troubles ont débouché sur une centaine d'arrestations et polarisé encore un peu plus la société salomonaise, incapable de déterminer par elle-même si les « nouvelles routes de la soie » constituent une aubaine ou un poison pour les îles Salomon. « Peu importe le donneur »Même les vieux sages comme Johnson Honimae, journaliste et chef de la radio publique salomonaise, que nous rencontrons sur le campus de l'Université d'Honiara, ont du mal à crever l'abcès. « Il y a des doutes parce que la Chine est une nouvelle venue dans la région. Beaucoup de gens ont des a priori. Aux Salomon, nous sommes chrétiens, ce n'est pas le cas de la Chine. Nous sommes un pays démocratique, nous tenons à ces valeurs, ce n'est pas vraiment le cas de la Chine. » « Mais au bout du compte, poursuit Johnson Honimae, la question, c'est de savoir qui va nous aider le plus possible, parce que nous avons des bouches à nourrir, des besoins de développement considérables et pas assez de revenus. Le commerce du bois s'est écroulé, et grosso modo, même si nous nous asseyons sur une partie de nos convictions, la nécessité à la fin du mois, c'est de joindre les deux bouts. » En ville, tous les immeubles en dur sont financés et construits par des entreprises étrangères. Les Américains ont aménagé le nouveau Parlement national, Taïwan a offert le siège de l'opposition et le dernier centre de conférences, près de l'aéroport, est une réalisation indonésienne. Il y a tant à faire, routes, ponts, hôpitaux, communications… Pourquoi s'étonner que la Chine vienne d'emporter un nouveau marché auprès de la Banque asiatique de développement afin de rénover le port international d'Honiara et deux débarcadères en province ?  « Peu importe le donneur, tous les gens qui travaillent dans le secteur du développement ici vous le diront, tempère Thierry Nervale, le directeur français de l'Autorité maritime des îles Salomon, un organe indépendant du gouvernement. Il y a effectivement des projets qui sont menés par des entreprises chinoises comme la China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC). Mais dans la majorité des cas, ce n'est pas la Chine qui en est à l'origine, c'est la Banque asiatique de développement qui monte des projets, lance un appel d'offres et choisit les candidats. Et visiblement les entreprises chinoises sont compétitives puisqu'elles sont souvent sélectionnées pour travailler en Asie et dans le Pacifique. » Pas de raz-de-marée, en tout cas pas pour l'instant. À terme, le gouvernement des Salomon n'exclut pas de travailler directement avec la Chine dans des domaines aussi sensibles que les télécommunications, l'installation de câbles internet sous-marins ou les infrastructures énergétiques. « À la lumière du dernier déplacement de notre Premier ministre à Pékin, il y a des discussions à venir autour des "nouvelles routes la soie", cela dépendra de nos besoins, prévient George Herming, le porte-parole de l'exécutif. Pour ce qui est de l'assistance militaire, ce n'est pas à l'ordre du jour, mais c'est une possibilité. Nous devons nous inspirer de que la Chine a été capable de faire pour se développer. »À lire aussiRetrouvez l'intégralité de notre dossier sur les «nouvelles routes de la soie»
