High Court Judge, Justice Salesi Temo has given a stern warning to those who want to indulge in methamphetamine.

Justice Temo gave this warning while speaking at the National Dialogue titled Substance Abuse – Let’s Talk About It! Finding a Fijian Solution at the AusAid Lecture Theatre at USP.

He also highlighted some of the problem areas in Fiji.

During the panel discussion in the National Dialogue titled Substance Abuse – Let’s Talk About It! Finding a Fijian Solution organised by Leadership Fiji with the support of the Ministry of Defence and National Security, Justice Temo says it is the job of the politicians to think about changing the law to target cultivators and manufacturers of drugs.

This is organised by Leadership Fiji with the support of the Ministry of National Security and Defence.
