DEAR EDITOR, further to my recent letters in the Solomons media concerning transnational drugs trafficking occurring in neighbouring island states, it is reported today, Monday, 30 July 2018, by Radio New Zealand that another huge seizure of cocaine with an estimated street value worth $US 20 million was found in Fiji.
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 30 July 2018. “Fifty-three bars of cocaine, with a street value of more than $US20 million, have been found in Fiji
“Police commissioner, Sitiveni Qiliho, said the discovery was on the northern island of Vanua Levu.
“Brigadier General Qiliho says 58 bars of cocaine have also been found on two islands in Tonga and they are the same quality as the caches found in Fiji.
“He says worrying quantities of methamphetamine have been found in Fiji since January.
“It’s the third multi-million dollar drug bust in Fiji this month.
“Fiji and Tonga sit on what’s been dubbed a narcotics highway between the Americas and Australia and New Zealand.” Copyright @ 2018, Radio New Zealand.
