Massive police corruption?

27 November 2008

Sounds like police corruption is endemic in this South American country:

Twenty nine packets of cocaine seized by Falkland Islands authorities from the fishing vessel “Ventura” on 30 October 2008 were secured as evidence in a double- locked police cell at Stanley Police Station pending the court hearing.

On 25 November a check of the cell revealed that 23 of the packets were missing.

According to the official release a search of the premises found evidence of one discarded bag and packaging from some of the missing packets….

What percentage of the Falkand Islands police and judiciary do you think are involved?  Both of them?
