The Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority’s Detector Dog Unit based at the Nadi International Airport has successfully intercepted thirteen cases of hard drugs amounting to over six million dollars in the past six months.
The unit which began operations in November last year has also detected other narcotics like cannabis, steroids, Ephedrine (precursor) and liquid products used for producing explosives.
The interception of these contrabands runs into thousands of dollars.
The K9 unit also has the capacity to detect currencies that are smuggled at our borders and so far has helped stop thousands of dollars (currencies) from being smuggled into the countries.
FRCA chief executive, Visvanath Das, says the five sniffer dogs selected for the K9 unit underwent special training.
