It is noted that the seizures carried out the civil guard of Spain, in cooperation with the police of Sri Lanka and the Office for combating drug trafficking of the USA.
The drugs were hidden in two shipping containers. They were supposed to deliver to India. Furthermore, the ship where the drugs were found, in October of last year came from Ecuador. It stayed in Belgium and Saudi Arabia.
