Three people have been charged with one count each of giving threatening statements at the Nadi International Airport.
The Director of Public Prosecutions in its latest report on serious crimes stated that two individuals each informed security officers that their luggage contained bombs.
The DPP says the third accused, an Australian national, informed a security officer that she had a gun in her bag.
Meanwhile other serious crimes in June included a 20-year-old college prefect being charged for allegedly smashing a ceramic bowl on a 16-year-old student.
There were four incidents of assault causing actual bodily harm.
One of these four incidents was a domestic matter where a 23-year-old woman was charged for allegedly burning her nine-year-old daughter with a hot iron.
In one incident five men were charged with an act with intent to cause grievous harm after they attacked a police officer who tried to stop an aggravated robbery.
The DPP says in other similar incidents a 26-year-old man was charged for allegedly stabbing his de-facto partner with a knife, in another incident a 48-year-old man allegedly used a cane knife to cause grievous harm to his brother and in the third incident a 33-year-old man allegedly sewed the vulva of his 13-year-old stepdaughter after he allegedly raped her.
A 56-year-old man was charged with two counts of attempted murder after he allegedly struck his de-facto wife and stepdaughter with a cane knife.
In one of the aggravated burglary offences, the accused allegedly set fire to a building which caused damage of $42, 000.
The DPP charged 77 people with a total of 73 counts of separate serious crimes last month.
