    Do we have a Customs? Why aren’t these drug hauls arrested by the Customs? Most arrive through regular channels which are safer, cheaper and more reliable for the dealers.

    Anyway great work. Since Sirisena took over the Police it has been highly efficient in taking down the narcotics mafia. Well done! It is a politically suicidal move as all drug lords will support the anti-Sirisena camps now but it is the right thing to do.

    Media should report the names, nationalities and ethnicity of the suspects. There is a clear pattern about the ethnicity of most drug dealers. Or does reonciliation come to their rescue?

    Sirisena must speed up carrying out executions (death penalty) as specified in the law.
