    Surprised there is no thread about this already.

    Ex horse trainer John Nikolic and wife Yvette have been arrested in Fiji after their luxury yacht they were sailing across the Pacific from South America to Australia was seized in Fiji with cocaine, guns and cash on board.

    https://www.news.com.au/...drugs...nikolic/.../1678baa56fc053eccb67f9f3af4c4dba

    Seems a really bizarre story. Wondering why they were busted in Fiji of all places?

    Especially when they were just cruising the pacific for a bit of sailing, snorkelling and sunshine around the Pacific Islands before continuing their "alleged drug run." Was it just pot luck from a random inspection, crew dobbed them in or authorities tipped them off? No other reason for the Fijians to really care.

    Also the Nikolics are a very influential racing family and one of their members is allegedly a major drug supplier. Makes you wonder how deep the links run. Hard to believe no one in racing or wider Melbourne Society knew what they were up to.

    2 things from that

    The amount alleged

    Fiji customs seized what they say was 13kg of cocaine, 2kg of ecstasy, as well as the guns and $20,000 in cash.

    The 2nd

    Her husband wasn’t arrested, as he is fighting for life in hospital after drinking a substance in an attempt to self-harm.

    The Herald Sun reports that the 45-year-old drank a potentially deadly cocktail believed to have been made of liquid cocaine and methamphetamine, just as customs officers began their raid.

    Its not a small holiday amount and the self harm is indicative of great concern

    Umm the Nikolics were run out of racing a long time ago.

    And people knew they were dodgy as **** before that, the likes of VCAT just stop authorities from weeding them out.

    Read up on the murder of Les Samba. That was 7 years ago now.

    Read that someone here was quoted as saying the killer(s) is now possibly very nervous.

    Does Danny Nikolic still ride? Think John is his brother. There has always been a bit of smoke around them.

    Danny Nikolic's last ride in Victoria was September 2012. He gets banned from riding, gets it overturned, banned from riding again, banned from attending race courses, gets the ban of attending racecourses overturned, banned from race courses again. Rinse repeat through the courts for the best part of a decade.

    Well it wasn’t smooth sailing for John in the end.

    Regardless of the circumstances, good that those guns and drugs are no longer on the street.
