SUVA, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Three men have been charged in relation to the seizure of 179 bullets for military-grade assault rifles, the government-owned Fiji Broadcasting Corporation said on Tuesday.
The three men, including a pharmacy owner, a pharmacy manager and a mechanic, have been charged with being in possession of arms and ammunition without a license.
The live rounds were discovered and seized on Jan. 1 in a yacht at a marina in the city of Lautoka, the court was told.
The three charged have been remanded in custody and are expected to appear in court again later this month.
Firearms are tightly regulated and controlled in Fiji, where police officers on duty are typically unarmed.
