Lo­cals, who are in­volved in as­sist­ing il­le­gal drugs to pass through Fiji as a tran­sit point, get paid not in cash but with more drugs, Police be­lieve. These drugs, such as metham­phetamine then find its way to the lo­cal mar­ket where it is sold by these lo­cal con­tacts.

Well-placed Police sources have con­firmed that a large quan­tity of drugs

pass through Fiji in this man­ner and a por­tion of it is given out as pay­ment. New drugs that have come to Fiji in­clude metham­phetamine which is also known as ice. Other drugs that Police are aware of in­clude a red pill which is be­ing sold off at $50 each. Police are still try­ing to

what this drug is.

Well-placed sources also con­firm that these drugs are sold at some high-end pubs around the coun­try. Not ev­ery­one is sold these drugs and one has to be a reg­u­lar be­fore deals are struck to pur­chase ei­ther ice or the pill.

Police in­tel­li­gence con­firms that the deal­ing of these drugs is done in a very so­phis­ti­cated man­ner.

Police also say it’s not the same as sell­ing mar­i­juana on the streets.

The Fiji Police Force are once again call­ing on the pub­lic to come forth with any in­for­ma­tion they may have about such drug rack­ets.
