Apprehending large hauls of narcotics in vogue now! Though this is nothing new the pace has accelerated since the election of President Gotabhaya. This has been happening over the years now more often than ever in the history of narcotics in Sri Lanka. Throughout what has been a mystery to the public is what happens to the apprehended narcotics? Although occasionally we have seen hauls of marijuana or ganja being burnt we have not seen what happens to the stuff like – heroin, ice, and other methamphetamines – how the stuff is destroyed – if at all!

The latest news is about a haul of heroin amounting to 247 kg apprehended mid-seas. It turns out that the haul has been handed over to a few low-ranking police officers for safe custody and storage pending production as exhibits at court hearings. What has happened to this narcotics haul is now the latest news. The part has been passed over to heroin dealers and the rest reconstituted with the addition of the food additive Ajino Moto (MSG) so that alike weight can be spirited away for later distribution through drug networks concealed in rice bags!

Heroin gets sold in milligrams. Thus 247 kg is 247 million grams with a street value running perhaps into billions of Rupees. Carrying a few grams is sufficient for a person to be put behind bars for many years in many countries including Sri Lanka, I believe. In this scenario is difficult to comprehend why such a highly-priced as well as a highly dangerous haul of drugs have been handed over to a few low-ranking police officers for safe custody.

The story gets even more juicier. The latest investigations reveal that this has been the practice during the last so many years to recycle the apprehended narcotics back to the streets by the very same officers in charge with the ‘understanding’ of their superior officers – under the very snotty nose of the law! So far it has escaped the eyes of the law how those narcotics officers including who knows colluding politicians connected with drug rings are getting super-rich. Some of the palatial residences they occupy their lifestyles as well as their investments show the extent of the money spread.

Most importantly the aspect that is not easily understood is the reason why these ‘so-called court exhibits’ need to be held in totality. One would imagine in this day and age with the available technology it is possible to suitably record, photograph such materials, and only statistically representative samples kept for court exhibits. The rest of the drugs that are more dangerous out in the street almost as fissionable radioactive materials should be destroyed in a fully transparent manner that will leave no legal stone unturned for its thoroughness or veracity.

THE NEW GOVERNMENT IS ON THE RIGHT PATH. LET US BRING A NEW PARLIAMENT THAT WILL SUIT THE ADMINISTRATION OF PRESIDENT GOTABHAYA – A ONE WITH AN OVERWHELMING OVER 2/3 MAJORITY FOR THE POHOTTUWA! IT IS TIME THE AUGEAN STABLES ARE CLEANED UP!

    You may have put a drop of cow dung to the nice pot of milk. No need of any rogues from past parliamentarians with court cases.

    Sadly so much money is being made by selling drugs, there will be competition for this horrible trade that may result in one getting rid of the drug dealer to be replaced by another by pretending to fighting drug menace. Good example is that practiced in Latin American countries. There may be a well known entrepreneur putting his nose in Colombia pretending to be helping the cause of the refugees from Venezuela, perhaps there to deal in drugs where Colombia is a well known drug producing country..
    Narcotics is a curse and we should not tolerate this horrible destructive trade.
