Belgium, like the neighboring Netherlands, has in recent years become the main European transit point for drug trafficking to the continent from Latin American countries. Last year, the police seized a record 110 tons of cocaine in an Antwerp building, and this year, according to current statistics, it will be more.
Only while the Dutch order to withdraw the drug split mole after confiscation, it is not possible in Belgium. He put a lot of material in containers in a building where criminals are trying to get to him, reported the Brussels website Politico.
Three weeks ago, the police reportedly stopped an armed group that was trying to get to one of the containers containing drugs. He missed the bird and the trio, armed with knives, tied up two employees of the building, who discovered them next to another container containing cocaine.
The amount we seize today is much higher and (for gangs) it is not a write-off loss. Today, they are clearly prepared to do a lot to get the drugs back, said Ine Van Wymerschov, the commissioner responsible for drug crime, to the VRT television station.
Because Belgium is divided into German and Walloon states, it has the correct structure unlike many other countries, including the Netherlands. Individual groups are now not united, because cocaine cannot be disposed of as quickly as in the neighboring state.
The representative of the Federal Ministry of Finance, Kristian Vanderwaeren, claims that the problem is the insufficient capacity of the facilities to deal with drugs, which is a problem of German drugs. On the other hand, the German minister Zuhal Demirov opposes and sees the sweat in the insufficient sweat of the federal customs officials, who are in charge of transporting the container for diapers.
Van Wymerschov claims that these days he is trying to ensure that drug disposal becomes a priority. She should present her full report to the federal government’s security council.
