Jailors involved in drug cases, bribery in trouble Featured

Intelligence reports have uncovered that Colombo Remand Prison inmate, prominent drug racketeer Matara Kamal has been operating his drug ring based in Dubai where large stocks of drugs and weapons have been brought into the country.

He is said to be using modern mobile phones from within prison by bribing several high ranking prison officials and operating his drug business with the aid of two notorious drug racketeers based in Dubai.

These two drug racketeers were arrested in 2014 with a stock of drugs and were remanded, but after they were released on bail, they had evaded the courts and fled to Dubai.

The intelligence units have received information that the drugs brought to the country by Matara Kamal through his associates in Dubai is being distributed throughout the country by another drug racketeer Badowita Inoma.

The government has now focused its attention on launching a secret mission in order to nab the corrupt prison officers who assist these drug racketeers.
