L’élite de la Force Qods du Corps des Gardiens de la Révolution islamique (I.R.G.C.) dirige un réseau international de réseaux criminels organisés pour introduire clandestinement de la drogue dans toute l’Europe.

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

Citant des sources anonymes du système judiciaire italien, l’Arabian report affirme que le cerveau des opérations de la police de Quds est l’ancien général de la Force Qods Gholamreza Baghbani.

Des membres du Hezbollah libanais et des forces de mobilisation populaire irakiennes (P.M.F.) seraient membres de ce réseau criminel. Les cargaisons de drogue seraient introduites clandestinement de l’Afghanistan à la province iranienne du sud-est du Sistan et du Baluchestan, d’où elles sont alors expédiées en Europe.

Les autorités italiennes ont découvert que des trafiquants irakiens amenaient de l’héroïne de l’Iran vers l’Italie via l’Irak et la Turquie pour être distribuée dans différents pays européens.

Ce n’est pas la première fois que des allégations de trafic de drogue sont portées contre le I.R.G.C. et sa force Quds secrète. En 2007, le général Baghbani, alors chef de la Force Qods à Zahedan, capitale du Sistan et du Baloutchistan, a été désigné par le Département du Trésor des États-Unis comme narcotrafiquant.

Le Trésor a déclaré à l’époque que Baghbani «autorisait les trafiquants de stupéfiants afghans à faire passer des opiacés à travers l’Iran en échange d’une aide».

Précisant que: «Les trafiquants afghans de stupéfiants ont livré des armes aux Talibans au nom de Baghbani. En retour, le général Baghbani a facilité la contrebande de précurseurs d’héroïne à travers la frontière iranienne. Il a également facilité les expéditions d’opium en Iran.  »

Dernièrement les autorités allemandes ont saisi une cargaison d’héroïne dans deux camions iraniens. Selon la Deutsche Welle, la police a arrêté les camions arrivant de Turquie où des chiens renifleurs ont découvert 150 kilogrammes.

Le procureur a déclaré que les camions qui provenaient d’Iran, sont entrés en Allemagne via la Turquie.

TEHRAN — Iran is giving a helping hand to Afghanistan in fight against drug trafficking, spokesman for Afghanistan Ministry of Counter Narcotics Mohammad Hanif Daneshyar has said.

Illicit narcotic cultivation, production, trafficking, and consumption flourish in Afghanistan, particularly in areas where instability is high and state institutions are weak or non-existent. About 90 percent of illicit poppy cultivation takes place in these regions.

The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Afghan Ministry of Counter Narcotics estimate that 224,000 hectares (ha) of opium were cultivated in Afghanistan in 2014, with a total yield of 6,400 metric tons (MT) of raw opium. This represents a seven percent increase in cultivation and a 17 percent increase in opium production from 2013.

Traffickers provide weapons, funding, and other material support to the insurgency in exchange for the protection of drug trade routes, fields, laboratories, and trafficking organizations. Some insurgent commanders engage directly in drug trafficking to finance their operations. However, drug trafficking is not limited to insurgent-controlled areas and the narcotics trade and undermines governance and rule of law throughout the country.

Afghanistan is deeply involved in every facet of the narcotics production cycle, from cultivation to heroin production to consumption. Drug traffickers trade in all forms of opiates, including unrefined opium, semi-refined morphine base, and refined heroin. The Afghan narcotics trade is highly evolved.

Afghanistan leans heavily on assistance from the international community to implement its national counter narcotics strategy.

Among the neighboring countries as Daneshyar has told Mehr news agency Iran is one of Afghanistan’s main partners in fighting narcotics along with some central Asian countries.

“Afghanistan is not politically in a good condition and other regional countries are more capable to fight drug traffickers,” he highlighted.

Terrorist groups are in close collaboration with drug traffickers in Afghanistan and the government is trying hard to stop them, he noted, regretting, terrorism and drug trafficking are inextricably interwoven in Afghanistan  and the insurgent-controlled areas in the country are best places for drug traffickers.

Terrorist groups are deriving much of their income from the drug trade, he said. As reported by the United Nations the income arise from drug trafficking in Afghanistan amounts to some $70 billion.

Iran has actively collaborated with Afghanistan along the border areas to fight drug gangs and traffickers, he added, stating, that’s why the condition is much better in border areas with Iran.

However, Daneshyar criticized Pakistan for not undertaking real efforts to fight narcotics in Afghanistan.

He further reiterated that regional support can positively benefit Afghanistan in the battle against narcotics.

According to UNDOC the Balkan and northern routes are the main heroin trafficking corridors linking Afghanistan to the huge markets of the Russian Federation and Western Europe. The Balkan route traverses the Islamic Republic of Iran (often via Pakistan), Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria across South-East Europe to the Western European market, with an annual market value of some $20 billion. The northern route runs mainly through Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan (or Uzbekistan or Turkmenistan) to Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. The size of that market is estimated to total $13 billion per year.

As per a report published on Politico last week Hezbollah exploded into a major cocaine trafficker for the United States over the past decade—and it happened under former President Barack Obama’s watch to help score a nuclear deal with Iran. The report wrongfully claims that Project Cassandra, a campaign launched by the Drug Enforcement Administration in 2008, found that Hezbollah collected $1 billion a year from money laundering, criminal activities, and drug and weapons trade.

Accordingly the report has falsely accused Iran of supporting Hezbollah drug trafficking including cocaine shipments from Latin America to West Africa, as well as through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States.

IRAN: le nombre de drogués a doublé

Publié: 25 juin 2017 par internationalinformant dans Drogues, INFOS, Irán

Voisin de l’Afghanistan, qui est le principal producteur d’opium dans le monde, l’Iran est une route de transit de la drogue vers l’Europe et les pays du Proche-Orient. Mais la drogue est aussi distribuée en contrebande dans le pays, ce qui explique une forte augmentation du nombre de drogués.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, General Hossein Rahimi said in an operation mounted early on Wednesday morning, the law enforcement forces managed to kill Khodabakhsh Balouch, a notorious outlaw who was behind the deaths of several polices officers in the province.

He further highlighted two other operations in the cities of Iranshahr and Saravan in Sistan and Balouchestan over the past 24 hours and said two major drug rings were smashed in the operations.

The commander added that seven members of the drug rings were arrested and four tons of illicit drugs and some weapons and ammunition were also seized from the smugglers.

Police and security forces have been quite successful in ensuring security in the province despite its long borders with Pakistan and Afghanistan, harsh weather and vast desert areas.

Iran, which has a 900-kilometer common border with Afghanistan, has been used as the main conduit for smuggling Afghan drugs to narcotics kingpins in Europe.

Despite high economic and human costs, the Islamic Republic has been actively fighting drug-trafficking over the past three decades.

The country has spent more than $700 million on sealing its borders and preventing the transit of narcotics destined for European, Arab and Central Asian countries.

The war on drug trade originating from Afghanistan has claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Iranian police officers over the past four decades.

« Such a substantial seizure of drugs will deal a significant blow to the international narcotics trade which is known to provide funding for terrorist organisations,” said HMS Monmouth’s Commanding Officer Ian Feasey.

Lieutenant Alison Ross, one of HMS Monmouth’s boarding officers, said: « After such a long search I had doubts we would find anything, but the reactions of the crew to our activity in certain areas was enough to convince us that there was illegal cargo.

The contrabands, which were hidden in the freezer of a fishing ship, were later destroyed by the British soldiers.

The suspicious dhow was intercepted by two teams of the British war ship in the Indian Ocean in an area not normally known for fishing.

Plus de 400 kg d’héroïne d’origine iranienne ont été saisis à la frontière entre la Bulgarie et la Roumanie dans un camion à destination des Pays-Bas, a annoncé dimanche le directeur des Douanes bulgares, Gueorgui Kostov.
