Narcotics stocks seized by the local law enforcement authorities, upon commencement of the judicial process, would be destroyed publicly on April 1, President Maithripala Sirisena said yesterday. 

The President said he had ordered the relevant authorities to destroy narcotic stocks in an open and transparent manner. The first such instance was when a stock of 928 kilogrammes of cocaine, seized during raids by the Police Narcotics Bureau (PNB), was publicly destroyed at the premises of the Katunayake Export Processing Zone in January last year under the supervision of President Maithripala Sirisena.

 It was reported that the present narcotics stocks would also be destroyed at the Katunayake Export Processing Zone on April 1.

    Ganja burning in large quantities in public will be a huge smelling event best with Bob Marley music.

    How are we to know that substance that is destroyed in public is actually narcotics and not a substitute. I have written to the President and the IGP in this regard but have not received any response from either to date.
