A very strange situation took place this week in the UK when a peculiar letter did not make it through the safety scan in a prison. During the routine inspection, the security found out that a letter sent on House of Commons headed paper to a prisoner at HMP Coldingley was contaminated with MDMA.
On top of that, there is evidence that the letter was sent by a junior parliament official on March 22. Then, it failed a drug screening and has now prompted a Class A drug probe by jail directors. Although it could have been contaminated anywhere in the process, there will be definitely an investigation taking place.
According to official sources, shortly after arriving at HMP Coldingley prison in Surrey, the letter failed the drug test. Immediately, the result showed a huge exposition to MDMA powder before reaching the recipient at the facility.
The MDMA letter Did Not Make It to The Prisoner
After hearing the news, the inmate requested information from the Common’s library. This institution consists of a bank that keeps all the available information and statistics about parliamentary matters. At the end of the day, the inmate never received the letter and therefore doesn’t know its contents. Obviously, the police confiscated it after it failed the drug test. Considering the importance of the matter, on the evening of September 12, officers had confirmed that they had launched a formal investigation. In order to have an idea of the magnitude of the issue, officials are now working directly with the Ministry of Justice.
“It was a very odd case but someone who has handled the letter somewhere along the line could have had enough on their hands for our scanners to pick up,”A source told british media The Sun
As many of you may know, The House of Commons has its own post offices and mail services. Their main goal is to support the millions of letters sent to and from parliament every year. Definitely, this story proves that MDMA could be everywhere, even in a letter from the House of Commons.
