Myanmar to Bangladesh: Yaba's Voyage of a Thousand Leagues
Bangladesh has been hit hard by the worsening trend of trafficking in smuggled goods from Myanmar. Drugs inspectors say that various Myanmar segregation groups are producing yabas in 37 plants in Shan State - which divides the country's frontiers with China, Laos and Thailand - and trafficking them into various nations to obtain money.
Secret service officers, speaking on an anonymous basis, said more than 500 Rohingya Jaba traffickers and over 1,000 burglars invaded Bangladesh after Myanmar raided in August last year. A number of Rohingya traffickers living in the Cox' Bazar warehouses said 13 species of yeaba are manufactured in the Myanmarfactory.
You claimed that some members of Myanmar's federal parliament, the Shan State legislature and powerful state figures support the traffickers. The majority of these burros are members of various Separist groups located in Shan. "One of the major revenue streams of these clothes is the contraband of Jaba. So they are directly engaged in producing and selling Yaba," said another Rohingya dealer Rashid Kulu.
Myanmar has been reiterated in Bangladesh's call for tough action to close down the Jaba plants, but there has been no tangible improvement. Since 1990 they have been smuggling the city of Yorka to Bangladesh. With increasing demands, segregated groups in Shan established plants to fill their bags, drug controls and prosecutors said.
High-ranking safety officers said the latest launch of the Xaba trip is from Shan. They will be taken first to Yangon and then to Sittwe, the capitol of the state of Rakhine, before being sent to Maungdaw. Later on, yeaba tablets are contrabanded in packages to Cox's Bazar, Chittagong and Barisal. TeeKnaf country harbor resources say many bootleggers are paying for the contraband through authorised banking through over-invoicing, taking full advantage of the limit trading in U.S. dollar, without having a letter of credit.
One Bangladesh border guard said that because of increased safety on the Naf River, Bengal Gulf of Bengal is now being used by the smuggler to get to Barisal in order to get to Cox's Bazar and other targets. Together with BGB, the Navy, Coast Guard and Rapid Action Battalion captured several deep-sea tetrawlers and confiscated several million pieces of almonds.
"Before 2015 there were more than 50 Jaba plants in Shan, but the number has dropped to 37, but the amount of contraband Jaba has increased every day," said Syed Towfique Uddin Ahmed, Deputy Inspector General of DNC (Operation and Intelligence).
