Review addresses changing security landscape

The National Defence Review is ongoing to address the changing security landscape in Fiji.

Speaking during the opening of Parliament earlier this week, His Excellency, the President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere said the recent seizure of approximately four tonnes of methamphetamine requires the review of the Illicit Drugs Control Act and related legislation.

He said the Fiji Police Force will collaborate with counterparts in source-countries to curb the smuggling and trans-shipment of illicit drugs to and through Fiji.

“Partnerships with religious bodies, community leaders, and other stakeholders are crucial in the fight against crime and drug trafficking.”

“The review of Defense, Immigration and National Security legislation will be given priority.”
