.Boat with suspected drugs consignment and military assault rifle seized
The National Drugs Enforcement Agency (NDEA) has said it has recorded another successful step in its strategy of targeting the major players in the drug business known locally as ‘Gro Pwason’.
In a communiqué, the NDEA said the latest operation it has undertaken was a result of a prolonged intelligence gathering operation, culminating in an undertaking to counter the delivery of a major consignment of drugs to Seychelles, and the subsequent seizure of what may be the largest ever seizure at sea of drugs in Seychelles.
The latest stage in the current operation unfolded just after dawn on Friday December 7, 2012 as the NDEA’s boat – Interceptor – and its crew had reached some 400 miles south of Mahe.
The communiqué adds that a suspect boat was identified in the waters sailing in northerly direction towards Mahe. The boat was boarded and its crew of seven overpowered. Fol
