A record breaking quantity of cocaine has been seized by the Montenegro
authorities in the Tivari port, with Albania as its destination.

250 kilograms of highest quality cocaine was hidden in banana boxes. The Montenegro police declared that it was found in one of the three containers that brought banana from Ecuador to Albania.

The drug was distributed in 223 packages and the value reaches 12.5 million EUR. According to the Director of the Montenegrin Customs, Vladan Jakovic, the container was sent by the Vimptikorp SA company, from Ecuador, and the receiver was the Albania company “Rrapo”.

The representatives of the Vimtikorp company express their surprise about this, and say that only few weeks ago they have brought another package in Albania, again for the Rrapo Company.

“This is not the first time. We have brought some containers a few weeks ago. We export to many companies and Rrapo is not the only one. We established contacts with them 6 or 8 months ago. They said they needed 2-3 containers each week. We have sent 1 or 2 every week, sporadically”, declared the Ecuadorian company.

The Albanian Police are exchanging information with their Montenegrin counterparts to discover the scheme of this traffic.
