Ha! Ha!! No need! Customs and the police know the answer. Perhaps a powerful Gov member is the sponsor. These raids are in line with the Mr. Presidents sudden core desire to bring an end to this. Buy again, once the elections are over, these raids will be gone. The way I see it, Prez is working hard, to show and cover up his unpopularity. At the same time it is a trick to fool us. The durg nonsense is a key for him to be re elected and the election is aimed for certain parties to form a Gov. Just sit back and watch (the reality)!!

We often hear about large quantities of drugs recovered following painful investigations by Police. How the drugs are destroyed remains a mystery. I wonder if they return to the community via hidden channels

This is the ideal time for president sirisena to take action on these drug lords and instruck court to implement the death sentance after his trip to Philippines. Definitely Prime Minister Duarte will like that.

Is this show off to satisfy the public. What's happening to all these drugs. Does it go back to the market through the back door. Why isn't it destroyed the very moment its confiscated. With todays technology you can video it for proof and then destroy it in public. Then we will believe its really happening. Not otherwise.
