Why the SL media and the politicians who often have no hesitation to spread fantasy and unfounded stories, cannot name those who imported these into the country? Is that news not of the public interest and have the public no right to know who these people are?
The Customs is a leaking sieve.
With a few buckshees, you can have have a whole un-inspected container delivered to your doorstep.
Unfortunately, the surgical remains imported by the richest man in the land stank too much and had to be intercepted.
Whole new cars are imported in containers and delivered to homes.
Drugs/ please don’t talk about it.
