Malta stops €28.5 million worth drugs’ shipment from Syria to Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

VALLETTA – The Maltese Customs Department discovered several tonnes of cannabis resin while inspecting four containers at the Malta Freeport on Monday, according to Times of Malta.

The drug shipment had a street value of €28.5 million and it is believed to be the largest ever in Malta.

The containers, which were transiting through Malta on their way from Syria to Libya, were flagged as ‘potential high-risk containers’ following risk analysis performed by the Malta Customs Container Monitoring Unit.

In a statement, the Maltese government congratulated the customs department on its work. It said the vessel carrying the drugs had been tracked for several days before its arrival in Malta.
