Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has strongly stated that anyone who decides to bring drugs into Fiji will end up in prison.
He made this comment while commissioning the latest non-intrusive inspection x-ray technology at the Suva Wharf this morning.
Bainimarama says they are also adding an x-ray machine for mobile containers and vehicles, a pallet x-ray machine and four sets of CT x-rays along with spare parts and seven technicians to help run this equipment all donated by the Chinese Government.
The Prime Minister says that with this technology they will be able to quickly scan loads of cargo containers or pallets without having to open them up making clearance more accurate by reducing human error and more efficient by allowing for faster clearance.
Bainimarama adds that it is good news for law abiding Fijian businesses as their transit time for imports will be decreasing.
He has also warned businesses who are engaged in illegal activities.
