The shipment allegedly belonged to the ‘Clan del Golfo’ and, apparently, was shipped in the waters of Cartagena by the so-called ‘micos or trepadores’.

The joint work of the Attorney General’s Office, through the CTI and the Special Directorate against Drug Trafficking; and the National Navy, provided detailed information on the departure of a shipment of cocaine to Europe. In this sense, the Dutch authorities and the British agencies were informed, and the shipment was detected in the port of Rotterdam (Netherlands).

The investigative activities revealed that the drug was transferred in speedboats to jurisdictional waters of Cartagena (Bolívar) and delivered in bags to the so-called ´micos or trepadores´, who boarded a boat on the high seas and left the illicit substance hidden in various containers.

According to the European agencies that detected them in a maritime terminal, the shipment had a weight of 1,002 kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride, which had different labels and logos.

The evidence indicates that the ‘Heroes del Caribe’ substructure of the ‘Clan del Golfo’ would be responsible for the shipment to the Netherlands. Preliminary calculations show that the cargo, in European territory, would exceed 60 million dollars in value.

The Office of the Attorney General makes this information public for reasons of general interest.
