The Circumstances | Kangs Drug Offences Defence Team
The haul, weighing 8.74 tonnes, was concealed in 1080 boxes of bananas and its seizure resulted from Europol gathering intelligence and working closely with the Colombian Government.
The shipment was tracked from South America to the port of Algeciras in the Bay of Gibraltar.
According to the Columbian Government, a former paramilitary group, called the Gulf Clan, is responsible for the shipment which departed on a Singapore-flagged boat from the Golfo de Uraba in Northern Columbia.
