The Court granted permission to the Police Anti-Narcotics Bureau today to detain until 29 of this month the 9 Iranian nationals who were taken into custody with a multi-day vessel and a stock of Heroin valued at more than Rs. 1200 million.

This was when they were produced before the Magistrate of Colombo Lanka Jayaratne this morning.

The Police Anti-Narcotics Bureau informed the Court that since these individuals do not know the English language they will obtain assistance through the Iranian Ambassadors’ office.

It was yesterday at dawn that a multi-day vessel was taken into custody together with 09 Iranian nationals and stock of Heroin of more than 100 kilograms during a joint operation carried out by the Police Special Task Force and the Police Anti-Narcotics Bureau with the assistance of the Navy in the Southern seas.
