COSTA RICA’S PORT OF LIMÓN FEEDS EUROPEAN COCAINE PIPELINE

Insight Crime on 13th March carried an article about a remote port, Moín, near the city of Limón on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, which has long seen shipments of bananas and pineapples which conceal another product: cocaine.   It says that the port of, has undergone a massive expansion that includes new scanning technology, and the article asks if traffickers continue to use it to transit drugs?  6 tonnes of cocaine sent via the port was seized in Spain in October – but this only one of several recent drug seizures linked to the port.
