Combatting efforts denting drug trade locally, internationally – CANU Head – Guyana Times
The Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) is making significant strides in combatting illegal narcotics, according to CANU head James Singh, who said these efforts have resulted in denting the drug trade both locally and internationally.
He said further that CANU had assisted in overseas operations that had led to the confiscation of narcotics being transported from Latin America and the Caribbean region.
Permanent Secretary Andre Ally has added that, with the success recorded, the ministry has seen it fit to invest heavily in the unit. To this end, the sum of $827.4 million has been earmarked in budget 2024 for the drug enforcement body.
