Minister for Foreign Affairs, National Security and Defence Inia Seruiratu says people need to know that Police Officers within the Eastern Division and overall in Fiji are vigorously fighting the war on drugs so that the Nausori‑Nakasi corridor is not known as the meth corridor.
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony for the new Nakasi Police Station, Seruiratu says the fact that Nakasi contributed 19 percent of the crime in the Eastern Division last year should ring alarm bells.
It will take 85 weeks to construct the new Nakasi Police Station which is located next to the new Nakasi Health Centre and the new Nakasi Fire Station which is currently being built.
The project includes the construction of residential barracks.
The cost of the project is $35 million and it is funded by the government.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
