The disposal of the illegal narcotics was overseen by a government commission set up for this purpose.
The Customs Administration said in a statement that the procedure "took almost all day," and specified that "nearly 54 kilograms of heroin and over 300 kilograms of marijuana" have been destroyed.
The statement added that the drugs in question had been stored by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Police at the Interior Ministry (MUP) headquarters in Belgrade, and that a certain amount came from several police administrations and dated back to 1995.
"Similar proceedings to destroy narcotics are expected in the coming period as well, which will testify in the best manner about the uncompromising fight of the state against illegal narcotics trade," announced the Customs Administration.
