    Great event. We need a pirith ceremony, Garlands, speeches by politicians on how they conquered the drug Mafia. As usual the law enforcement officers will be sidelined to accommodate the big mouths.

    Didnt the earlier article say 1000 Kg of Cocaine, and 1400 Kg of Heroine? Correct me if I am mistaken
