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 cartels tested the country as a 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.
