Keep a look out for any suspicious brown packages floating out at sea or washed ashore.
Acting Commissioner of Police, Itendra Nair is also asking the public to refrain from opening them as it may contain cocaine in its pure form that can be extremely harmful to one’s health.
The discovery of nine parcels containing white substances believed to be cocaine indicates there is a possibility of more being washed ashore.
ACP Nair says, while they await the analysis to be conducted on the recent finds from Taveuni and in the Lau Group they are working closely with the Fiji Navy and relevant stakeholders both locally and internationally as it is highly likely that the drugs were being transited through the Pacific and not intended for the two island nations of Tonga and Fiji.
