Anti-Drug Squad, BSI cooperating on Malaysia seizure of drugs worth $18 m

Anti-Drug Squad is cooperating with Bureau of Special Investigation (BSI) in investigation into the case in which narcotic drugs worth US$18 million were seized from a container that went from Yangon to Malaysia, said a BSI official.

Both are hot on the trail of how the drugs were secretly loaded into the container and the ship.

After the seizure, the flat of a suspect on 53rd Street in Pazundaung Township, Yangon, was raided but the suspect is at large. Another suspected company owner is now being detained for questioning, local sources reported.

When contacted, a BSI official said details could not be released at the moment.

“I cannot tell details because it is an ongoing case. What I can say now is that BSI is cooperating. Arrests could not be confirmed now.

We are investigating how these drugs went to the ship (bound for Malaysia),” said the official.

When contacted, a high-ranking official from Myanmar Anti-Drug Squad also said detailed could not be released at present.

Malaysian customs authorities confiscated the drugs hidden in tea packages at Port Klang in Kuala Lumpur on May 22. In connection with the case, Malaysia police are questioning six Malaysian and Myanmar suspects.

The vessel carrying the narcotic drugs reportedly left Asia World Port in Yangon. The Daily Eleven contacted officials of Asia World Company but they did not make a reply.
