Police arrest 30 in drug smuggling ring Zaros On Thursday, the Constabulary concluded a 2 year long investigation into drug smuggling. Over the course of the investigation, police tracked the movement of millions of Scudi and eventually narrowed in their investigation. According to Captain Alfons Luna, police had a scope of 10 suspects. The arrests occurred as nearly 20,000 pills were being brought into Nicosia. "We expect this to be a bust which will subdue the trade for only a short time. These designer drugs are going to be an epidemic in a fragile ecosystem unless we continue heavy enforcement" said Captain Luna. Nicosia suspended the death penalty for drug smuggling in 1997 but still retains what is known as "Enmarque Penal Labor" which allows for forced labor until the death of the inmate.
