Morocco Foils Drug Smuggling Operations at Tanger Med & Bab Sebta

Morocco’s security services seized on Tuesday over 5.5 tons of cannabis at the Tangier Med-Port. The drugs were concealed in an international cargo truck that was heading to a European port.

A statement released by the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) said the driver, a 30-year-old Moroccan national, was arrested. The illegal substance was detected by trained police drug dogs.


On Monday, Customs services and policemen seized at Bab Sebta crossing point 20 kg of Chira (cannabis resin), a customs source said.


The banned substance was concealed inside a Morocco-registered car that was heading for the occupied city of Sebta.


The driver, a Moroccan man, was arrested, the source added.

These major drug-busting operations show that international smugglers are trying to use the strategic position of the North African Kingdom as a transit point to European market.

Morocco works closely with European partners to combat drug trafficking. The international community recognizes the country’s efforts and supports its policies to fight cannabis cultivation and trafficking.
