Authorities say cocaine intercepted in Jamaica didn’t come from Suriname

The Public Prosecution Service in Suriname (OM) says the cargo of greater than 1,000 kilos of cocaine intercepted in Jamaica earlier this month didn’t come from Suriname.

The OM was responding to media reviews of the January 14 bust on the Bustamante port in Kingston that the cargo of unlawful medicine might have come from Suriname with China as its closing vacation spot.

However the OM mentioned via the Judicial Intervention Crew (JIT), the Public Prosecution Service made inquiries with the police, customs and the navy intelligence service of Jamaica and it’s clear that the medicine didn’t come from Suriname.

Jamaican authorities had confirmed {that a} cargo of 1,549 kilos of medicine had been intercepted at Bustamante port in Kingston. The container with the medicine was on the ship CMA CGM VERACRUZ from Cartagena, Colombia.

The JIT mentioned the container ship CMA CGM VERACRUZ is just too huge for Surinamese waters which is why it may well “point out with certainty that the ship and the medicine didn’t originate from Suriname”.
