“The presence of prosecutors during the seized cannabis quantities destruction is a legal obligation for the State Police. Meantime their presence is often avoided during the destruction of narcotics quantities. This means that materials proofs are destroyed in violation of the law. Prosecutors should always be present during this process,” said Llalla, raising suspicions that the seized narcotics quantities are not destroyed by the police.
The Attorney General also stressed that a higher presence of the prosecutors as actors in the fight against cannabis cultivation and narcotics trafficking is needed in this important phase of the justice reform.
