Sokoimuri confirms drug bust in Tunuloa, Cakaudrove
As we reported earlier, the police via their herald Atunaisa Sokoimuri have confirmed that villagers were "busted" for planting marijuana in Tunuloa, Cakaudrove.
While drugs are indeed a problem in Fiji, Intelligentsiya rejects the implied notion that justice was meted as appropriate.
We maintain our claim that once again the heavy-handed judge-and-jury police and military operation has landed a critically ill villager in hospital and we hope to have evidence available very soon.
Meanwhile the Tui Cakau and illegal and treasonous Bainimarama are cited to be meeting again very soon.
