Another smuggling attempt was exposed by the Fiji revenue and customs service today after conducting a search on a New Zealand based yacht in Savusavu.
The Captain and two crew members are now in Police Custody.
The search by Customs Officers led to the seizure of a large quantity of a mix of different ammunition types.
Revenue and Customs Chief Executive officer Visvanath Das said Fiji’s intelligence and profiling processes are determining high risk vessels and collaborative efforts with the Fiji Police and Navy.
Last weekend a massive drug seizure took place on an Australian based yacht.
The collaboration to improve the security in Fiji’s port of entry has led to the increased number of successful operations.
