Last Saturday (16 Oct), Australian Federal Police (AFP) said that they seized the largest heroin shipment ever detected in the country, worth an estimated RM431 million and arrested a Malaysian national over the importation of the illicit drug.
The 450kg shipment (as heavy as a grand piano) was detected in a sea freight container of ceramic tiles sent from Malaysia and addressed to a Melbourne business, the police said in a statement.
According to NST, Malaysian police will be working with their counterparts from the AFP for a further investigation for now.
Federal police Narcotics Crime Investigation Department (AADK) director Datuk Razarudin Husain said all necessary action would be taken to ensure drugs distribution and smuggling activities are eliminated without compromise.
“We will continue to do the needful to ensure that drug distribution and smuggling activities are combated without compromise.
