Fiji Police: More Drugs Uprooted In Kadavu

More than a thousand plants believed to be marijuana were uprooted from two separate farms in Kadavu this past week.

The raids were conducted at farms located at Lagalevu and Waisalima and two men are in custody believed to be the owners of the farm.

Intelligence gathered by police in the Southern Division and assistance from villagers contributed to the success of the raids, as information continues to be received on the alleged cultivation of the illicit drugs on the island of Kadavu.

The Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said all efforts are being pushed towards the war against drugs.

“We have been collecting information on those involved in the drug trade for quite some time and now our focus is on bringing them to justice, because I cannot allow innocent people and families to be impacted”.

“My message to those involved in the drug trade is that, we will get to you”.

Brig-Gen Qiliho said the support from members of the public has also been overwhelming.

“We will treat all information and tips with the highest level of confidentiality and members of the public should not fear coming forward, as any officer who gives out information will be dealt with accordingly”.

“Government has provided us with the resources that has drastically increased mobility on land at out at sea, so if it means deploying our boats to Kadavu with resources and personnel on a weekly basis to reduce and curb the cultivation of marijuana then we will do so”.

The seized plants will be brought over for analysis as investigations continues.
