Update: 7:05PM A PROSECUTION witness in the trial of man who is charged with one count of unlawful cultivation of illicit drugs today informed court that the team decided to go in numbers to inform the village headman of the incident because in the past, villagers attack officers who conduct drug raids on the island.

Police Corporal Tumanu Ravonu said the team consisted of officers from the Fiji Police Force and the Republic of Fiji Military Force(RFMF).

It is alleged on September 26, 2016, a total of 170 marijuana plants was uprooted from Alivereti Ratokabula�s farm.
