HARD drugs are not available on our streets although some consignments have been seized in the country, police say.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Henry Brown yesterday said Fiji was being used as a transit point only for the hard drugs.
In an interview on Thursday, ACP Brown, who is the police force's chief administration officer, said there was no market for hard drugs in Fiji.
Recently, the police and the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority have intercepted some parcels containing illicit drugs.
The parcels containing either cocaine or methamphetamine were sent from abroad and addressed to locals, some of whom have been charged and produced in court. When asked if hard drugs were available on the streets, ACP Brown said: "They are not available and Fiji is used for transit only. Locals are used to transit it."
ACP Brown said no one in Fiji had been caught for peddling hard drugs or for being in possession.
"There's no market in Fiji and I believe that the police have disrupted the recent trafficking of hard drugs. I think we have come a long way in sharing intelligence information with other agencies in the country to tackle the problem."
