PNB officers and drug traffickers: PCoI given copies of recordings

A CD containing voice recordings linking Police Narcotics Bureau (PNB) officers and drug racketeers has been submitted to the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) on political victimisation.

The Director of PNB had submitted the CD to the Commission on Monday (6).

When evidence was called for over the complaint lodged by former Inspector of Police of PNB Neomal Rangajeewa, he disclosed evidence of connections between PNB officials and drug traffickers.

Accordingly, IP Rangajeewa had made a request to the Commission to summon the Director of PNB to obtain the evidence.

Upon notification, a CD containing a voice recording of a conversation between a PNB official and drug trafficker was submitted to the Commission.
