Nearly 525 tons of illegal drugs were seized in the country since the beginning of the current year (ends March 19), said Anti-Narcotics Police Chief General Ali Moayedi. “This year, approximately 340,000 individuals have been arrested on charges of drug-related crimes including drug possession, use and drug trafficking,” ISNA quoted him as saying. “In the next year, we will pay more attention to the five provinces of Kerman, Yazd, Sistan -Baluchestan, Hormozgan and South Khorasan, as the rate of drug trafficking is higher in these provinces,” he said, referring to the seemingly unending campaign against the drug mafia.
