    They never catch the sole agent, but the police always catch some small distributors / traders.

    Think a Minute... How many Kilos Police and Customs have already seized....

    This is drugs not rice to come in so many kilos and with all those security no one takes this much of risk to bring them in Kilos like a consumer item.

    This shows that so many kilos are coming to our country on a monthly basis and the are caught as a show piece and is released again from the back door to the market.

    Why catch them at all? As Dr Amunugama said the other day, sales could be taxed and the government can fill the public coffers for badly needed expenditure

    Katugastota is not far away from Gampola. Remember PM"s letter to facilitate clearance of a 261 kgs haul of herein to one of his constituents.

    Dickie Bird Friday, 15 August 2014 12:55 PM

    We need to know how it got into the country and brought in by who and where is the money for such a quantity?

    Does the connection points to the Jayaratne sibling ??

    This crime must be exposed in its entirerity.
