1.2 Ton Cocaine More Found On German Freighter With Russian Master, This Time In Las Palmas

Cargo of bagged millet and corn in cargo hold of unfortunate general cargo ship UNISPIRIT was strenuously searched by unified Spanish police, CG and Customs teams during five consecutive days at Las Palmas, Canry Islands. The ship arrived on Oct 16 from Sao Sebastiao Brazil, understood not for cargo operations, but with the sole purpose of a thorough search, with final destination being Cadiz Spain. 1,200 kilo of cocaine were found hidden in cargo, loaded in Brazil and destined for Spain. 1,5 tons of this same cocaine were found during loading operation at San Sebastiao on Oct 2, in cargo holds among bags. So probably, it’s the same drugs shipment. Understood as with Brazilian incident, no arrests were made among partially Russian (including Captain) crew. UNISPIRIT left Las Palmas late Oct 21, bound for Cadiz.
