Difficulties have occurred in bringing drug lord Makandure Madush, who was arrested on last 05 in Dubai, back to Sri Lanka, reportedly reasoning that there are no charges pressed against his crimes within Sri Lanka.
Although many drug samples were retrieved from various parts of the country recently, which were claimed to have been delivered by Makandure Madush, no prosecution has been made against the drug lord in any form of court in Sri Lanka.
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and the Interpol in Sri Lanka therefore have met with utter difficulty as to what should be done to bring Makandure Madush back to Sri Lanka.
In terms of the murder charges, the first murder charge against him was on the death of Danny Hiththatiya, in 2006, followed by five other infamous murder charges that had no media coverage, which can easily be counteraruged before courts and can be dropped.
Apparently, the drug lord has no drug charges against him, although reports say that there are police personnel who received medals and cash rewards claiming to have captured his drugs.
Nevertheless, extradition documents proving the crimes of Makandure Madush need to be prepared to have him extradited to Sri Lanka. Those who claimed the credit for the arrest of Madush don’t seem to take the initiative.
Previously, it was possible to have Welesuda sent back from Pakistan because he was caught having 25 grams of heroin in his possession. Although Madush was caught with a group of people who carried drugs, no drugs were found in the possessions of Madush.
Although it was said that a group of President's Counsels were to travel to Dubai to make necessary arrangements with regard to Madush’s case, they don’t have the opportunity to do much in Dubai. However, Makandure Madush is more likely to be released from the Dubai Police, while Amal Perera and Ryan Van Royan may be further detained, leaving the first international amusement of Sri Lanka in 2019.
