POLICE IN SPAIN ARREST 17 IN RAIDS ON ALLEGED SAFFRON SMUGGLERS

On 7 May, the Guardian reported that the arrests follow 2-year investigation into a gang believed to be importing spice from Iran and selling it as prized Spanish variety.  Once in Spain, the spice was processed, dyed, packaged and branded as saffron from La Mancha, which has protected designation of origin status.
