It has been revealed in Courts that the foreign suspects involved in the large scale 110 kilogram of narcotics racket had maintained links with Sri Lankan suspects. This intimation was made to Courts by the Police Narcotics Bureau.
This haul of heroin along with 13 local and foreign suspects were taken into custody on the 30th of March this year.
The Court ordered to produce the underage Iranian boy who was among the suspects to the Colombo Judicial Medical Officer to obtain a presumed birth certificate.
The trawler used in this racket which was seized has been brought to the Trincomalee Harbour from the Dickowita harbor and entrusted to the Navy. This measure has been taken due to the inclement weather conditions.
The suspects were further remanded until the 31 of this month as investigations are continuing.
