FIJI’S top cop Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho has turned to the church for help and spiritual guidance to address the nation’s growing methamphetamine and marijuana trade.

Brig-Gen Qiliho reached out to the Methodist Church in Fiji yesterday and urged them to join hands with police in combating the drug trade.

He said a recent operation by the Fiji Police confiscated $15 million worth of marijuana.

“Fiji has reached that place now and this will have a huge effect on us as we are a small nation. There must be moral teachings from home to ensure that we all fight this.”

He said police needed the assistance from the church as it played a huge role in the spiritual guidance of a person.

“Methamphetamine has become a real concern as more raids and discoveries continue to take place in Fiji.”
