Arrests for selling Khat

Question

Please tell me how many people have been arrested on suspicion of selling, and of using, khat since it was banned on 24 June 2014.  

Please also tell me how many of the above have resulted in prosecutions.

Answer

Please note that the offences regarding Khat refer to possession or supply rather than using or taking the drug. We have arrested two people for the possession of Khat since it was banned. Neither of the arrests resulted in a prosecution.
