Missing drugs not used by police

Over 150kg of heroin which cannot be accounted for after coming into police hands have not been lost or used in sting operations, justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has told MPs, reports the Parool.

One reason that only 220 kg out of 373kg of seized heroin could be accounted for, is that there are problems with the weighing scales at the destruction centre, the minister said.
