President Maithripala Sirisena said that the execution of the death penalty on convicted drug racketeers, who operate the racket from prison cells, has been delayed due to the lackadaisical approach of the relevant institutions to provide the necessary documents in time.

Addressing a meeting held at his office, President Sirisena said that he expects to initiate an investigation soon to such delays.

The discussion was held with regard to introducing new laws to overcome narcotic rackets and related crimes.

Addressing the relevant officials, President Sirisena said that all institutions coming under the purview including the Excise Department should work in cooperation to prevent narcotic rackets in the country.
