Increased drug detection due to political will - Dayasiri

Sri Lanka Freedom Party General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara commended President Maithripala Sirisena’s leadership adding that it was purely due to political will that the Police, STF and other law enforcement agencies have been able to detect massive hauls of drugs.

‘If the President had not taken up this ministry, many of these drugs would have entered the country unnoticed,” he said. “It is due to his political will to stamp out the drug menace that has given the IGP and STF commandant M.R Latiff the leadership to carry out their work sans any restrictions.”

Jayasekara referred to the recent hauls of heroin and cocaine that had been intercepted by law enforcement agencies. He also cited that the budget was an attempt by certain politicians to hamper the President’s efforts.

“This happened in Parliament before when the President faced opposition from members of the government.”
