Meanwhile, thanks to these incompetents, the real shipment has been safely delivered, no doubt. 

Yep all part of the setup. Sent on the wild goose chase. While I the meantime the crooks are laughing all the way to the bank

And this is the same country that wants to develop its own COVID vaccine.

I imagine they will copy it very well like they do with almost everything else. Amazing at replicating and producing cheaper generic versions.

 

As for creativity, ingenuity and ground breaking science, there is a lot of new knowledge they still do not posses.

Was wondering already for a few days when somebody had the courage to tell the people ...

Or the balls to con them...

excuse the skeptic in me but Taiwan warned them of the shipment after finding 300 kgs themselves....

Just think of it if the government coffers are almost empty, they ar broke and need some cash flow for the future, then along comes a nice stash of ketamine.

Just saying...

Justice Minister Somsak Thepsutin has admitted that the chemical seized in what was initially billed as the biggest drugs haul in Thailand’s history is not ketamine, but a harmless cleaning agent.

 

Somsak explained on Tuesday that when the first test was carried out on 11.5 tonnes of the white powder, it turned the reagent purple – a match for ketamine. But after testing again, the substance was found to be trisodium phosphate, a cleaning agent and food additive which also turns the testing reagent purple.

 

The mistake was caused by an error in the scientific process, he added.

 

The seizure made worldwide headlines on November 12 when officials including Somsak announced they had made the largest drugs bust in Thai history. The chemical was found inside 475 sacks piled in a warehouse in Chachoengsao and was said to be worth Bt28.7 billion.

 

The raid on the warehouse in the eastern province followed a tip-off from officials in Taiwan, who told the Narcotics Control Board they had seized 300 kilos of ketamine, but more was on its way to Thailand. The Thai shipment was seized and tested, with the results checked by scientists from the Justice Ministry and the Forensic Department before the “haul” was announced to the press.

 

However, subsequent tests on 59 of the sacks showed no ketamine was present. The Justice Ministry said the remaining 406 sacks will now be examined by the NBC, Forensic Science police, and Department of Medical Sciences, with test results due this week.

 

On Monday, lawyer and transparency activist Atchariya Ruengrattanapong accused Somsak of negligence over the 11.5-tonne seizure and asked the anti-corruption agency to look into the case.

 

Somsak insisted that he had not bullied anyone, adding that he had set up a working group to investigate what had gone wrong.

It could be worse, I worked in Trinidad just over a decade ago, the Trini cops made a real bust with a very large amount of cocaine. When the case came to trial the evidence had disappeared, the authorities claimed it had been eaten by rats.

Well set up a committee to look into why ? Simple ! Pure INCOMPETENCE .

They will need a committee to set up the committee after they have discussed the parameters that the actual committee can review, and then afterwards another committee to review the committee's work and ensure that another committee is not needed to deliver it to the set-up committee who will then submit it to the police....sound good?
