880 kilos of drugs destroyed at Nikola Tesla power plant: This is what the process was like
About 7.2 tons of narcotics have been seized during police operations this year - a record amount
Head of the Criminal Police Administration Dejan Kovacevic today attended the destruction of more than 880 kilograms of narcotics, seized in the previous period, that was carried out at the Nikola Tesla thermal power plant in Obrenovac, and said that the Ministry of Internal Affairs continues to work on arresting drug dealers and removing drugs from our streets.
"I stress that the destruction of narcotics that have been seized is only done after the court proceedings have ended - more precisely, after the final judgment has been passed in specific cases - and that it is being carried out continuously. 998 kilograms have already been destroyed in the thermal power plant this year, while another 880 kilograms of various types of narcotics are destroyed today," Kovacevic said, recalling that this type of incineration is carried out in quantities of up to one ton at a time, primarily for environmental reasons.
In addition to members of the Ministry of Internal Affairs - representatives of the Commission for Disposal of Psychoactive Controlled Substances of the Government of Serbia, as well as representatives of the Prosecutor's Office, the Court and the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (who run the power plant), also attended today's destruction of drugs.
Kovacevic recalled that about 7.2 tons of narcotics have been seized during police operations this year - a record amount, and stressed that this was the product of extremely high quality and good work of members of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
