Two men convicted of cultivating more than one thousand kilograms of marijuana in Kadavu valued at twenty-million dollars will be sentenced by the Suva High court today.
Amani Masikerei was convicted of one count of unlawful cultivation of illicit drugs while his co-accused 23-year-old Samuela Natokalau had pleaded guilty to his charges.
The court heard that the two men cultivated 1,440 marijuana plants – equivalent to 1, 046.8 kilograms in Kadavu last year.
