Members of the Malta Police Force will have to undergo mandatory drug tests after the passing of a new law, as stated by Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri.

This follows the string of reports of members of the force testing positive for illegal substances.

The Minister also reported that last year, three soldiers, two prison workers and one police officer tested positive in random drug test, calling for increased discipline and zero-tolerance towards drug use in the force.
