Regional Transnational Crime Trends
To add to the letter of mine you published in your newspaper last week on the same subject, I should like to mention that in recent days the Fiji Police seized more cocaine with an estimated value of about $US15 million from an island in the Lau group.
It was reported in the Fiji Times that the Fijian Customs Service, acting on a tip-off, found 30 blocks of cocaine with a combined weight of 40 kilograms.
This latest seizure come after a week when Fiji authorities had also seized $US15 million worth of cocaine and ecstasy from a yacht at Denarau, along with guns, cash and ammunition.
