Drug trafficking – 30 kg of Chira Seized at Tangier-Med Port

Moroccan police and customs at the Tangier-Med port seized, Thursday, some 30kg of chira onboard a transport truck, said a security source.

The control services at the port discovered the illicit substance after the truck was scanned. The drug was hidden in the bodywork of the vehicle, which was loaded with avocados destined for Spain, added the same source.

This operation is part of Morocco’s efforts to combat international drug trafficking.

The truck’s driver, aged 31, was remanded in custody to conduct the investigation led under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office.
