More cocaine seized on a remote Fiji island

DEAR EDITOR, with help from the New Zealand Defence Force the authorities in Fiji have seized yet another 12 kilogrammes of cocaine from a remote island.

Forty kilogrammes of cocaine, estimated at SUS15 million, were seized earlier this month on the same island.

The authorities in the Solomon Islands must remain highly vigilant to the threat of illegal drugs, such as cocaine, entering the country since experts have said the recurrent seizure of cocaine in Fiji could prompt crime syndicates to redirect illicit drug supplies through other countries in the Pacific

A New Zealand navy ship is believed helping Fiji patrol its waters after a request from Fiji’s customs agency.

Yours sincerely

Frank Short
