How former Super League star and New Zealand international was caught importing meth

Manu Vatuvei Salford

“Operation Clydesdale demonstrates that … Mafi was chief in organising the importation of methamphetamine into New Zealand,” states a partially redacted agreed summary of facts released by the court.

“… Vatuvei, on instruction from the defendant Mafi, assisted with import arrangements (particularly making inquiries about imported packages and directing others).”

Court documents revealed that the former Kiwi winger was directly involved in two of the imports, with one of the packages labelled “sporting kits” that instead held 487g of methamphetamine hidden inside skipping rope handles.
