Sri Lanka: Heroin scam hits office of PM Jayaratne


Sri Lanka's prime minister has ordered staff not to write letters in his name, after drug traffickers obtained a letter written by a secretary in his office to authorize a heroin shipment.

DM Jayaratne said that action would be taken against the sender.

At least 131kg (288lb) of heroin worth millions of dollars was seized on 30 August.

The heroin was hidden in cans packed into a container sent from the Pakistani port of Karachi.

It was concealed among ceramic bathroom fittings and plastic goods.

A customs official was quoted as saying it was the largest seizure of the drug in the South Asian region.
