    This looks like a staged event to protect the actual importer of these drugs as the evidence must be strong against the actual importer.

    Confiscate all his properties and that of his family members and freeze all bank accounts. This surrender is not the end in this saga.

    "Buddhist" above, is quite right. This operation is far too big to have been "masterminded" by a cheap thug from Boralesgamuwa. He must be just the fall guy.
