Co-operation in detecting drugs A VISIT by a Chinese police delegation is helping to increase co-operation in the fight against precursor drug chemicals and illegal drugs coming into New Zealand. The recent Chinese anti-narcotics and forensic drug testing delegation came from the National Narcotics Control Commission of China. In the visiting group were the chief of China’s drug intelligence and forensic centre, Xu Guang Han, and China’s top expert on the identification and analysis of illicit drugs, Dr Zhen Dong Hua. NZ Police arranged the visit as a way to help strengthen ties with their Chinese counterparts. Police inspector Stuart Mills, co-ordinator of the National Drug Intelligence Bureau, says the visit is another important step forward in co-operation with China. “ The visit focuses us on the important work for both countries to prevent illegal narcotics coming from China to NZ,” he says. “It allows NZ authorities to work closely together on identifying the criminal networks that bring in drugs to try and make money from other people’s misery.” The Chinese delegation met with its counterparts in police, the Organised Financial Crime Agency, Customs, Environmental Science and Research, and visited forensic scientific laboratories in Auckland and Wellington.
