Club owner joins the war against drugs

August 26, 2019 7:01 am

In an effort to combat the growing drug issues in Fiji, nightclub owners are imposing stricter rules for thorough spot checks for all patrons.

Speaking to FBC News, Downunder Pub Fiji Owner Chris Cook says they’re contributing to war against drugs by ensuring that people are searched at the door before they’re allowed to enter.

Cook hopes no drugs will end up in their premises given the continuous night patrols by police and the strict rules imposed by some night clubs.

“You don’t want your bags searched – you don’t come in. We’re searching for knives, drugs and all sorts of things. So it’s an issue now – the drugs and hopefully, it doesn’t get any worse.”

Pub Director Caroline Wainoqolo says they’re aware of the growing number of drug-related incidents and are doing their part to remain a drug-free club.

“We have. Especially when there was something put up on the media about something that we commented that it was actually found here. Every meeting we do discuss it and we find mostly with the young students.”

Meanwhile, the Fiji Police is now working with club owners to identify and arrest those peddling drugs inside night clubs.
