Well, for service to somebody

Ratu Josefa Iloilo, the President of the Republic of the Fiji Islands, has chosen at this time to award a Companion of the Order of Fiji to reinstated Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, who just happens to also be the head of the military and chief Junta plotter in the 2006 military coup that, well, brought the job of President to R. J. Iloilo.

As to the service to humanity part of the award...

I'm not quite sure how the crackdown on Free Speech and enforcement of censorship (since his April 11th return to the Premiership) quite qualifies.
