Two other Chinese nationals were arrested at the scene during a Garda raid yesterday.They were living on the site.Garda Superintendent Kevin English, who is leading the investigation, warned landlords to be responsible when leasing properties.“Where people have commercial premises for rent, we would ask them to have inspection clauses so that they know what their premises are being used for. “They need to be responsible and they need to ensure that they are being rent for lawful purposes,” he said.Supt English said he would not rule out the possibility that there is a paramilitary link to the find and confirmed they are liaising with the PSNI.Seized cannabis included everything from seeds to recently harvested plants.Sources say the raid was a result of “good police work” by community Gardai.It’s understood Gardai now believe the cannabis factory is part of a network of growhouses in Co Donegal and believe there may be more here in the county. Gardai are urging anyone who sees suspicious activity, particularly in rural areas where there are disused warehouses or outbuildings, to contact them immediately.They also believe the Chinese nationals are being forced to work in the growhouses by criminal gangs who are also involved in human trafficking.THIRD CHINESE NATIONAL ARRESTED IN €1M CANNABIS FIND PROBE was last modified: October 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:THIRD CHINESE NATIONAL ARRESTED IN €1M CANNABIS FIND PROBElast_img
