    Excellent work by the STF. I guess the STF can trace back to identify who was on duty when the goods came in either by air or sea, as definitely AIRPORT and or PORT staff got to be involved in this haul. It is impossible for such a large haul to have simply slipped into the country. Neighbours should all be questioned too, they got to have witnessed the unloading of good at some point of time, that haul could not have been delivered and or transported in one go.

    "Pregab" a narcotic ?

    GIRLS, don't get excited. Pregab is not for unwanted pregnancies.It is an anti-epileptic drug. It slows down impulses to the brain that causes epileptic fits.

    Who is the MP or the Minister who is the Drug Lord behind this illegal import? Surely there must be a connection to an SLPP member.

    Sick of asking you guys as to what happened to all the drugs that were sized on the high seas. There are no cases for them and why are they not destroy them in public and kept for what cause it becomes wheat flour or saw dust after 6 months.
