SPANISH POLICE HAVE DISMANTLED A DRUGS TRAFFICKING NETWORK WHICH ALLEGEDLY RELIED ON CORRUPT LAW ENFORCEMENT AND CUSTOMS OFFICERS TO SHIP HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF EUROS’ WORTH OF COCAINE AND HASHISH INTO WESTERN EUROPE

On 8 June, a news release from Europol advised that a total of 61 individuals were arrested for their involvement in this criminal operation, including 5 officers from the Civil Guard, 1 from the National Police and 1 from customs.  The corrupt law enforcement and customs officers were paid by the criminal organisation to make sure that the drugs were not intercepted as they were smuggled in the Spanish port of Algeciras.
