Cocaine on the rise in Morocco

Moroccan cops seized more than 1.4 tons of cocaine in 2021. In October, cops intercepted a shipment of 1.3 tons of cocaine in the port of Tangiers, coming from Brazil and bound for Antwerp.
The smuggling of cocaine surged as drug cartels test using the North African country as a platform for the route into Europe.
Smuggling of cocaine was carried out using the “rip-on / rip-off" method. Smugglers break the customs seals on a container, load the container with cocaine, and then attach counterfeit and illegal seals.
