A 60-year-old man from Suva Fiji has been sentenced to 16-years imprisonment in New Zealand.
Tallat Rahman was arrested in February last year in Operation Nova for his involvement in importing Class A drug.
The Auckland District Court heard Rahman imported methamphetamine from Mexico and New Zealand which was identified in a covert investigation known as Operation Nova.
The 60-year-old was arrested in the first phase of the inquiry last year following the discovery of $5m worth of methamphetamine hidden inside kitchen appliances.
The arrests were made after police executed search warrants.
