Laos police have seized a record amount of drugs. Foreign media suggest that 1.5 tons of methamphetamine Kristal were seized, the amount of which is estimated at more than 55 million euros.
Jeremy Douglas, Southeast Asia Regional Representative for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), said the discovery was “by far the largest seizure in the history of East and Southeast Asia.”
The Golden Triangle, the place where the amount of drugs was found is an area in northeastern Myanmar that meets parts of Thailand and Laos.
It has served as a mass production hub for amphetamine-type stimulants, particularly methamphetamine, used by Asian crime syndicates with distribution networks reaching as far as Japan and New Zealand.
