Fiji Corrections warn against contraband items

February 15, 2016 7:20 pm

The Fiji Corrections Service has issued a stern warning against throwing contraband items over prison fences and walls.

This follows a discovery of contraband items outside the Suva remand centre early this morning.

A package containing dried leaves believed to be marijuana, a smoke pipe and a multi-charger for mobile phones were found outside the premises by corrections officers.

Assistant Commissioner (Operations) Jo Kulinidilo says this is a daily occurrence.

He says it poses a huge challenge for officers.

Corrections officers have been directed to apprehend and hand over to police – anyone throwing items into corrections facilities.

People are liable to a fine of up to $2000 or to six months imprisonment.
