VIETNAM 🇻🇳: police seize nearly 300kg of meth

Publié: 18 février 2019 par Marc Fievet dans Narcotrafic INFOS

HANOI: A massive haul of nearly 300kg of methamphetamine pills was seized in central Vietnam on Sunday (Feb 17), police said, the latest major drug bust in a country where the use of synthetic narcotics is on the rise.

While Vietnam has some of the toughest drug laws in the world, it remains a popular transport hub and destination market for narcotics smuggled in from the notorious « Golden Triangle » – a lawless border zone that straddles Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.

Opium and heroin have long been the drugs of choice among older users, but lab-made powders and pills – like methamphetamine in particular – are gaining popularity among young Vietnamese.

Los dos expilotos de combate Pascal Fauret (D) y Bruno Odos llegan a la corte de Aix-en-Provence, en el sur de Francia, el 18 de febrero de 2018 para el juicio del caso « Air Cocaína »
(afp_tickers)

El juicio del caso « Air Cocaína » se abrió este lunes en Francia, seis años después de una espectacular incautación de cientos de kilos de droga en un jet privado que estaba a punto de despegar de República Dominicana al balneario de Saint-Tropez.

Nueve personas comparecen ante un tribunal especial en Aix-en-Provence, en el sureste de Francia, desde este lunes y hasta el 5 de abril. Para este sonado caso de tráfico de estupefacientes entre Francia y República Dominicana, no habrá un jurado, sino una corte especial, compuesta por cinco magistrados profesionales.

Entre los acusados figuran dos expilotos de combate, Pascal Fauret, 58 años, y Bruno Odos, 59, que estaban al mando del avión interceptado en el aeropuerto de Punta Cana el 20 de marzo de 2013. La policía descubrió 26 maletas de cocaína dentro del Falcon 50.

Sitting on the asphalt at Punta Cana international airport in the Dominican Republic, the private plane was about to take off for an overnight flight to Saint-Tropez in France when police swooped.

Inside the aircraft, a Dassault Falcon 50, officers found four Frenchmen – two pilots and two passengers – along with 680kg of cocaine, with an estimated street value of €20m (£17.5m), in 26 battered suitcases.

Six years later, the trial of nine people accused of being part of a drug smuggling operation began in Aix-en-Provence, southern France, on Monday. Among the accused were two former French military pilots, a customs officer and a celebrity bodyguard.

Pendant le procès en cours, la vente continue!

En 2013, 700 kg de drogue avaient été saisis dans un Falcon 50 en République dominicaine. A partir de ce lundi et pour sept semaines, neuf hommes sont jugés dont deux anciens pilotes de chasse. Quantité de cocaïne, nombres de personnes interpellées… Découvrez les chiffres fous de ce procès hors du commun.

Outre le vol intercepté à Punta Cana, dans les Caraïbes, les autorités enquêtent sur deux voyages transatlantiques effectués quatre mois plus tôt.

Le « comportement suspect » des passagers du Falcon 50 avait intrigué la police française après le premier de ces vols, dans le discret aéroport de Saint-Tropez-La Mole.

Une douzaine de valises avaient été déchargées discrètement et chargées dans deux voitures, sous le regard du douanier François-Xavier Manchet, également accusé.

Peut-être les effets personnels d’une star quelconque…

Parmi les accusés se trouve également Ali Bouchareb, qui serait le cerveau présumé du groupe.

Cet homme de 47 ans, qui était déjà accusé de trafic de cocaïne dans le passé, aurait payé « des centaines de milliers d’euros » pour organiser ces vols.

Il nie les accusations portées contre lui.

Una brigada de Aduanas, que depende de la Dirección Interprovincial de Tetuán, de la Administración de Aduanas e Impuestos Indirectos (ADII), se ha incautado de 1.925 kilos de resina de cannabis.

El decomiso de esta “importante cantidad”, según fuentes aduaneras, se llevó a cabo tras una emboscada tendida en la carretera entre Tetuán y Chefchauen, a la altura de Al-Hamra, según explicó a la prensa el director provincial de la ADII, Hamid Hosni.

Question à Rodolphe Gintz, le DG de la Douane française.

Quand va-t-on se décider à contrôler sérieusement tous les vols d’affaires?

Côté maritime la DNRED a un service, la CELTICS, certes en sous effectif, mais qui ne demande qu’à mieux s’exprimer.

Pourquoi la Douane française ne s’occupe pas des vols de l’aviation d’affaires et des vols privés? En France des centaines de terrain d’aviation non contrôlé permettent de penser que le ciel est une des portes « ouvertes » d’entrée sur le territoire.

Voici la liste des aérodromes français, avec leur code AITA et leur code OACI.

CBP Officers and HSI Agents Found More than 221 pounds of Cocaine Concealed in Produce Vessels Arriving from Ecuador and Guatemala

LOS ANGELES—A joint collaborative effort between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations, resulted in the seizure of 221.7 pounds (100.6 kilograms) of Cocaine concealed in produce cargo vessels arriving to Port Hueneme from Ecuador and Guatemala.

CBP Officers Intercepted 221 pounds of Cocaine from Ecuador and Guatemala at Port Hueneme

The narcotics were concealed within the
floorboards of the cargo vessel.

On January 22, while conducting an enforcement boarding of a refrigerated vessel arriving from Ecuador, CBP officers discovered 80 bundles of cocaine weighing 204.2 pounds (92.64 kilograms). The narcotics were concealed within the floorboards of the cargo vessel. A week after, on January 28, CBP officers discovered seven bundles of cocaine weighing 17.5 pounds (7.96 kilograms) inside the floorboards in another cargo vessel this time arriving from Guatemala.

“CBP plays a critical role in the effort to keep dangerous drugs from illegally entering the country. Specifically, by leveraging a comprehensive, multi-layered, intelligence driven, and threat-based approach to enhance the security of our seaports, we can diminish the effectiveness of transnational criminal organizations drug operations,” said Carlos C. Martel, CBP Director of Field Operations in Los Angeles.

The investigative expertise from HSI special agents who are now leading the ongoing investigation, was critical to the success of this interception.

“HSI is committed to stopping those who seek to smuggle illegal drugs across our borders,” said Joseph Macias, Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles. “As drug traffickers get more creative, we are working round-the clock with CBP and our law enforcement partners to stop this activity. HSI is generating a significant amount of intelligence in this investigation, which we will use to identify, disrupt and ultimately dismantle the criminal organization behind this scheme.”

Located in Ventura County, Port Hueneme is the only commercial deep-water port between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Strategically located, Port Hueneme is an important hub for imports of autos, fresh produce, general cargo, bulk liquids, and fish.

“This is the largest drug seizure at Port Hueneme in the last quarter of a century,” said LaFonda Sutton-Burke, CBP Port Director of the LA/Long Beach Seaport, and Port Hueneme. “I’m extremely proud of the results of this joint effort, it shows the professionalism, vigilance and keen focus of both agencies in preventing dangerous drugs into our communities.”

Un ‘duro’🙄 colpo al traffico di droga è stato inflitto nelle scorse ore dai carabinieri del Nucleo investigativo del comando provinciale di Napoli.

Nel corso di alcuni controlli, i militari hanno sequestrato ben 1.250 chili di hashish nascosti in due autocarri che stavano circolando nell’area puteolana, uno all’altezza di via Campana e l’altro nei pressi dello svincolo della tangenziale.
