* Conduct an audit regarding seized drugs, opposition asks Sri Lankan government
Tue, Jul 29, 2014, 08:19 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka main opposition United National Party (UNP) today asked the government to conduct an audit regarding the seized and destroyed heroin.

UNP MP Ajith P. Perera said in parliament today said that the Auditor General's Department must conduct an audit on the seized drugs and such an audit would show if the seized drugs are passed into the hands of the drug racketeers, as the opposition had accused.

The Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe recently questioned why the police do not destroy the drugs in public and charged that the seized drug stocks return to the hands of the racketeers.

Sri Lanka police recently announced that they have decided to destroy the seized drugs in public before media.

MP Ajith P. Perera reiterated that the politicians are behind the passing of the busted hauls of drugs to the market.

He said that if the government does not conduct such an audit, that will prove the politicians are behind the racket.
