NEW ROUTE ANNOUNCED
The General Directorate of Security, which is the supreme institution of the police units fighting against drugs in Turkey, made a statement by publishing a graphic on the new route of cocaine on its social media account last month.
In the statement, it was stated that drug smugglers used Turkey to transport “cocaine”. In the statement referring to the “Drug Reports” published by the European Union in the last 2 years, it was stated that “In terms of cocaine shipped from South America, a new route has been formed through Turkey to Europe and Asia”.
In the statement, which also includes links to the European Union Drug Report, the incident and capture graph related to cocaine was also shared.
In the statement, “Although the amount of cocaine seized in our country and the number of intervened drug incidents increase over the years, the number of cocaine-based incidents is decreasing. This is one of the indicators that our country has come to a transit/stage position in the cocaine issue. The graphic for this is given in the second photo. Turkish Law Enforcement Units are aware of the drug threat in our country and are fighting sincerely, from the police to the gendarmerie, from the coast guards to the customs guards.
