MOZAMBIQUE NOW A KEY HUB IN HEROIN TRADE BETWEEN AFGHANISTAN AND EUROPE

Devdiscourse on 5th July carried an article claiming that Mozambique has emerged as one of the world’s key heroin trading hubs, with the drug now the country’s second largest export as it is smuggled from Afghanistan to Europe, according to a new report, and that more than 40 tonnes a year is transported via Pakistan in dhows to northern Mozambique, taken to Johannesburg before being shipped to Europe in a network organised by dealers in Dubai.  The report calls the trade the country’s second-largest export – ignored for 25 years by the international community and controlled by a few local trading families and tightly regulated by senior officials of Frelimo, the ruling party.
