MARITIME: CMA CGM container ship cocaine drop-off, filmed by police

 

By Our Correspondent

A Container ship OLIVIA I was closely monitored by Spanish law enforcement agencies after they were tipped on possible cocaine drop from container ship which was to pass Gibraltar, en route from Cartagena Colombia, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “On October 24, 2023 patrol boat spotted and trailed behind container ship off Ceuta, until officers saw and filmed a drop-off, made in rather unusual manner.

“Two stowaways have been hiding someplace on board (understood in container), and when the ship approached drop-off position, they threw into water bales with cocaine and jumped into water themselves, to be picked up by land accomplices.

“They have been picked up from sea, together with drug bales, but unfortunately for them, picked up by a wrong boat. OLIVIA I was taken to Algeciras and held there until afternoon October 25, 2023, when she resumed scheduled voyage to Malta. After Malta, the ship sailed to Genoa, where she arrived on October 31, 2023.”
