Major drugs baron escapes following armed attack on Chinese cargo ship

A Shan News Agency report details an armed attack on a Chinese cargo freighter on the Mekong River on February 18, during which 1 crew member was killed, 3 were injured and damage to the freighter was caused. It is believed that an armed group loyal to a major Golden Triangle drugs baron, Naw Kham, was responsible for the attack.
Subsequently, after Chinese authorities urged action against Naw Kham and his followers, Laotian and Burmese troops mounted a massive manhunt resulting in the arrest of 54 men and the seizure by Burmese troops of more than 350 kilogrammes of heroin and 217 million baht in cash, although a Thai security source states that only 28 million baht in cash was seized. The drugs baron is still at large, with local businessmen reporting that, “He would not have escaped if it were not for local Burmese Army commanders, who were receiving kickbacks from the criminals.”
