CTF 150 warship seize six tonnes of Hashish from Drug Dhows

CTF 150 warship seize six tonnes of Hashish from Drug Dhows | Coastweek

HMAS Warramunga’s Seahawk Romeo helicopter has located two separate suspicious vessels in the East Arabian Sea. With CCTF approval, and following the insertion of her boarding team, a professional and thorough search of the first vessel led to the discovery of 147 bags of hashish, weighing in at approximately three tonnes and worth approximately USD $115.2 million. Just hours later, a second suspicious vessel was located by HMAS Warramunga’s Seahawk Romeo helicopter. Again, with CCTF approval, the ship’s boarding party was deployed and upon conducting searches uncovered approximately 3.2 tonnes of hashish, worth approximately USD $122.45 million. This takes Warramunga’s total seizures to more than 26 tonnes of hashish and approximately two tonnes of heroin, valued at approximately USD $1.42 billion. Asian-refined heroin derived from Afghan or Burmese poppy seeds flows by dhow sailing vessel and by air into Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. There it is redirected to Europe, and sometimes, via Nigeria, to Mexico and North America. Al-Shabaab, the Islamist, Al-Qaeda-affiliated terror movement of Somalia, derives much of its predatory income from the illicit movement of Asian heroin and hashish, charcoal and locally produced qat [miraa].
