The case stems from the seizure of a haul of amphetamines by the Maritime Affairs Field Division's Keelung Field Office in March 2019, which was found to be missing earlier this month during an internal check by the division.
An investigator in charge of the case Chan Meng-lin (詹孟霖) reported that the haul was lost in November last year after being sent to a MJIB forensic laboratory in Hsintien, New Taipei. It was supposed to be delivered by another investigator Cheng Yi (鄭翊), but never reached the lab.
Leu said during a legislative committee meeting that the incident was caused by problems in the Keelung office's internal control system and the bureau will review and further tighten its drug and evidence management and control measures. [FULL STORY]
