The Prosecutor General’s Office (PG Office) has decided not to challenge the Criminal Court’s decision to release two of ten people apprehended in a drug raid last Thursday with about 100 kg of heroin.
According to a PG Office media officer, the decision to release the two suspects will not be challenged since appealing the matter to a higher court will provide no substantial results.
He added that the PG Office has opted to uphold the lower court’s decision since there remains the possibility of getting an arrest warrant for the two individuals with more evidence.
Last Thursday, police detained ten suspects, examined ten sites, and collected about 100 kg of heroin during a 24-hour joint operation including the Drug Enforcement Department (DED), Police Intelligence, Marine Police, and Forensics.
A police media officer stated that four people detained during the operation had been remanded for 15 days, three for 10 days, and one for five days.
According to the media official, the 24-hour operation uncovered concealed narcotics on an uninhabited island.
Only a few days after the drug raid, police detained two people with 215 kilos of heroin during another anti-drug operation.
