Myanmar authorities not so ecstatic about a recent huge seizure of drugs in their country…

World News

Myanmar, better known as Burma, are not so ecstatic about the largest haul of illegal  drugs seized in the country’s history. Their navy intercepted a ship near the southern town of  Kawthaun, en route to Thailand, with about 2.4 million Ecstacy pills worth up to US$20 million dollars (NZ$24 million).

“This seizure is the largest amount in history”, senior anti-drug official Myint Oo said.

Fifteen men including the ship’s captain were arrested and detained at a police station last week,he said.

Drug runners will have to be a bit more respectful of the ability of anti-drug officials in that country now.
