Enforcement: Illicit drugs seized in Dhaka

December 21st 2014 - www.bdnews24.com

A large amount of medicines was seized during a raid near Dhaka on the 18th of December by the General Directorate of Drug Administration. The seizure worth 7.5 million Taka (almost US$ 100.000) was mainly composed of anti-cancer medicines and food supplements, some of which were counterfeited and had been smuggled from neighboring countries such as India.
The owner of the company, SK Entreprise, responsible for the smuggling is facing either a maximum of 10 years of imprisonment or a fine of 200.000 Taka, or even both. However, in this country, such judicial procedures could last several years before arriving to a decision.
