Very badly worded article or lost in translation. How do "they" Mr Minister intend to recoup 10 Billion Baht and then give 30% of the profits to the relevant police and citizens???

Are "they" going to be selling the raided drugs off, to make a profit to be able to do this? I think an understanding check should be made with regards to this article.

5 billion baht... 10 billion baht... to the cartels it's just part of the cost of doing business... the only way to win the war is to eliminate the cartels and educate the citizens... a losing battle if ever there was one.
