The National University Teachers Association (NUTA) said there was public perception that some government politicians were behind drug trafficking and requested President Maithripala Sirisena to implement the law against wrongdoers irrespective of their status.

NUTA General Secretary Channa Jayasumana, in his letter to the President, said he had been informed that students were addicted to drugs such as heroin, ganja and hashish.

He said it appeared that those, peddling such drugs, escaped the long arm of the law and that though drugs were discovered in large quantities in sugar containers bound for Lanka Sathosa no action had been taken to punish those responsible.

Dr. Jayasumana said people were under the impression that drug trafficking took place with the blessings of Cabinet Ministers.

“This will negatively impact on the principles of good governance,” he said in his letter. (KB)

    Of course without their blessing these things cannot be done. But when they are caught they say I cant remember or I don't know. The president should take stern action to lead a clean government and all the public will back him for sure.

    Why is this so called NUTA turning a blind eye without looking into what is happening to all the hundreds of kilos of drugs being detected and the people behind it . A big fuss gets created when a detection is made it ends there. It is positively sure that all the detected drugs find its way on to the streets and night clubs.
