The acting chief executive officer of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) has commended his officers for intercepting a parcel allegedly containing illicit drugs.

Officers from FRCA intercepted a parcel containing methamphetamine from the Suva Post Office yesterday.

The illicit drug, which was concealed inside a tube, was sent from the United States and addressed to a local woman.

The suspect, who went to the Suva Post Office to collect the parcel, was stopped by a customs officer who got suspicious. As the parcel was inspected it was established that methamphetamine was allegedly obscured in a tube.

“I commend our officers for carrying out their duties diligently in ensuring our borders are protected from the infiltration of illicit drugs,” Mr Das said.

“We now have qualified and trained officers who are able to detect such drugs from entering Fiji. While the drug concealment methods are getting complex, we have to work smarter to apprehend the perpetrators.

“The seizure now poses a warning to individuals wanting to bring in illegal drugs that FRCA officers and Police are vigilant in their work to ensure borders are safe.”

The seized drug is now with Police who will conduct further investigations.
