«J’ai vu de mes propres yeux des haut gradés de la police afghane travailler avec les trafiquants de drogue dans le sud. C’est un business qui rapporte des milliards et des milliards de dollars, qui finissent dans les poches des taliban et des responsables afghans», explique l’analyste politique Hekmarullah Azami.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, General Hossein Rahimi said in an operation mounted early on Wednesday morning, the law enforcement forces managed to kill Khodabakhsh Balouch, a notorious outlaw who was behind the deaths of several polices officers in the province.

He further highlighted two other operations in the cities of Iranshahr and Saravan in Sistan and Balouchestan over the past 24 hours and said two major drug rings were smashed in the operations.

The commander added that seven members of the drug rings were arrested and four tons of illicit drugs and some weapons and ammunition were also seized from the smugglers.

Police and security forces have been quite successful in ensuring security in the province despite its long borders with Pakistan and Afghanistan, harsh weather and vast desert areas.

Iran, which has a 900-kilometer common border with Afghanistan, has been used as the main conduit for smuggling Afghan drugs to narcotics kingpins in Europe.

Despite high economic and human costs, the Islamic Republic has been actively fighting drug-trafficking over the past three decades.

The country has spent more than $700 million on sealing its borders and preventing the transit of narcotics destined for European, Arab and Central Asian countries.

The war on drug trade originating from Afghanistan has claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Iranian police officers over the past four decades.

« Such a substantial seizure of drugs will deal a significant blow to the international narcotics trade which is known to provide funding for terrorist organisations,” said HMS Monmouth’s Commanding Officer Ian Feasey.

Lieutenant Alison Ross, one of HMS Monmouth’s boarding officers, said: « After such a long search I had doubts we would find anything, but the reactions of the crew to our activity in certain areas was enough to convince us that there was illegal cargo.

The contrabands, which were hidden in the freezer of a fishing ship, were later destroyed by the British soldiers.

The suspicious dhow was intercepted by two teams of the British war ship in the Indian Ocean in an area not normally known for fishing.

La contraventionalisation du cannabis proposée par Gérard Collomb ne résoudra aucun des problèmes cruciaux causés par la prohibition. Voilà pourquoi.

Par Edouard H.

Dans son interview pour RMC – BFM TV, Gérard Collomb a souligné à juste titre que « on voit de plus en plus qu’il y a une articulation très forte entre trafic de stupéfiants, trafics divers d’ailleurs et terrorisme », alors que le passage à des amendes pour sanctionner l’usage ne résoudra strictement rien par rapport à tous les financements que permettent les trafics.

En effet, en préservant toute la forte criminalisation du côté de l’offre de cannabis, le marché noir continuera de prospérer. Toute la violence associée à ces marchés noirs perdurera, et les forces de police et justice continueront d’être monopolisés pour cette guerre sans fin qui a amplement montré son échec total.

La persécution des personnes faisant usage du cannabis pour des visées médicales continuera. Les produits continueront à être peu sûrs, mettant en danger la santé des consommateurs. Les associations qui font des efforts de prévention et de réduction des risques continueront d’être harcelées par la police et la justice alors que leur rôle est essentiel pour la santé publique.

Face à ce sombre constat, une seule solution s’offre à Gérard Collomb s’il souhaite mettre un terme à toutes les conséquences délétères des trafics du marché noir tout en promouvant courageusement les libertés individuelles : la légalisation complète des drogues. À travers le monde on se dirige progressivement vers cette solution indispensable… À quand la France ?

Les premiers Marines américains sont de retour dans le Helmand, province du sud de l’Afghanistan en partie dominée par les talibans, qu’ils avaient évacuée en 2014 sans avoir réussi à contrer l’insurrection. 

Le Helmand, frontalier du Pakistan, fut un cimetière pour les contingents britanniques et américains qui y ont perdu des centaines d’hommes par le passé. C’est aussi la province du pavot d’où les talibans, qui menacent directement la capitale provinciale Lashkar-Gah, tirent l’essentiel de leurs revenus par le biais de taxes prélevées sur les fermiers.

La route du Nord, l’une des voies les plus empruntées par les trafiquants de drogue passe par les républiques d’Asie centrale, y compris le Kirghizstan.

Selon les services anti-drogue, environ 75 tonnes de stupéfiants durs, comme le haschisch et l’héroïne, transitent tous les ans par cette route qui relie l’Afghanistan à la Russie et à l’Europe.

pavotafghanLes partenaires internationaux de l’Afghanistan ont consacré depuis quinze ans et la fin du régime taliban des millions de dollars à le débarrasser de la production d’opium.

Le gouvernement afghan a tenté de développer le safran et d’autres cultures alternatives au pavot. Pourtant celui-ci continue d’augmenter, servant de principale source de revenu aux talibans.
Les taxes que les insurgés prélèvent sur le pavot leur rapportent ainsi jusqu’à 1,2 milliard de dollars par an, selon un expert occidental.
En 2016, les surfaces dédiées au pavot ont crû de 10%, atteignant leur pire niveau en 22 ans selon l’ONU. Les efforts d’éradication se sont effondrés, notamment en raison de l’insécurité croissante dans les provinces concernées. Et l’exportation ne souffre aucun obstacle grâce aux réseaux de trafiquants bien structurés.
« Même si le gouvernement nous arrête, nous continuerons le pavot » affirme Abdul Shukoor, du district de Zherai à Kandahar. « Le Pakistan ferme la frontière en pleine saison de récolte et notre gouvernement ne fait rien ».

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s top human rights official said the EU and US are the two major destinations of Afghanistan’s opium, and called for concerted global action against drug cartels.

“The EU and the US are the major destinations of the Afghan opium and the money is recycled back to terrorist activities in the country; the situation could not continue forever, ”Mohammad Javad Larijani, the secretary general of Iranian High Council for Human Rights, said in an interview with Brazil’s newspaper O Estado de So Paulo published on Sunday.

He underlined Iran’s fight against narcotics trafficking, including its hard stance against smugglers, saying that 93 percent of executions in Iran are related to drug convicts.

“I personally advocate reforms into laws, but do not believe that there should be a permanent halt in executions; we have 800km of border with Afghanistan, where the growing of opium spiked to 40 times that before the invasion of NATO.”

He said drug smugglers are not ordinary citizens. “Rather, they belong to an intricate network of armed cartels; Iran spends an annual amount of $200m in fighting these cartels; time now has come when Iran should not fight these cartels alone; we should bolster fight through receiving aid from international bodies to modernize facilities; a second issue is review of laws; the execution should be limited to the major leaders of a gang; this will immediately decrease the number of executions, which is on agenda, » Larijani stressed.

« This is a tactical shift and we will still be in the forefront of fight against drugs; however, procedures to change the law would take some time which should be respected; I think reviews could be made within 6 or 7 months; with presidential elections in May, we should avoid making the issue as a campaign trail debates, » Larijani told the daily.

Iran, which has a 900-kilometer common border with Afghanistan, has been used as the main conduit for smuggling Afghan drugs to narcotics kingpins in Europe.

Despite high economic and human costs, the Islamic Republic has been actively fighting drug trafficking over the past three decades.
The country has spent more than $700 million on sealing its borders and preventing the transit of narcotics destined for European, Arab and Central Asian countries.

Since the U.S.-led NATO invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the production of opium in the country has increased by 40 times according to Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, fueling organized crime and widespread death.
The head of the FSKN, Viktor Ivanov, explained the staggering trend at a March U.N. conference on drugs in Afghanistan. Opium growth in Afghanistan increased 18 percent from 131, 000 hectares to 154, 000, according to Ivanov’s estimates.
