in News · 18-05-2017 14:51:00 · 0 Comments

Portugal’s PJ police has, along with counterparts from Spain, the UK and the US, carried out a complex operation to combat drug trafficking which resulted in the confiscation of around 2.4 tonnes of cocaine and the arrest of seven men.

The seized drugs, which were intended to supply illicit distribution channels on the European continent, were being transported on a Venezuelan fishing vessel. The small boat was intercepted by the Spanish Tax Agency in the Atlantic Ocean. The detainees, all of Venezuelan nationality, as well as the seized vessel and drugs, are now under the jurisdiction of Spanish authorities.
