A search carried out by the Fiji Corrections Service officers in Naboro found contraband dropped for inmates to collect.

Commissioner of Fiji Corrections Service, Commander Francis Kean, confirmed saying: “Contrabands include mobile telephones, marijuana, Fijian cigars, etc.”

Commander Kean said they were conducting an internal investigation before they hand over to Police.

He said there were drop off zones but warned they had already identified them.

The sad thing about the issue was that family members were involved, he added.

In a recent case at the Korovou Corrections facility, a father had thrown a sack from a bus for his son to collect but was caught. The matter, he said was now with Police.

To the new recruits, Commander Kean said: “There is a high expectation of the FCS to deliver on this commitment and we welcome you being an integral part of this team of many teams.”
