The Port of Paita Captaincy took part in a multi-sector operation carried out at the EuroAndino Port Terminal, which found 50 packages filled with cocaine hydrochloride on a container ship in Peru.

MSC ANISHA R. (IMO: 7910682), the ship that carried the brick-type packages, was sailing under the flag of Liberia. 

It should be noted that the bricks were covered in Nazi symbols and had 'Hitler' imprinted into them.

The operation was carried out in coordination with representatives of the Anti-Drug Directorate (Dirandro) of the Peruvian National Police (PNP) and the Special Prosecutor's Office for Illicit Drug Trafficking Crimes headquartered in Piura region.

Accordingly, Peruvian authorities ordered the immobilization of the ship for the corresponding proceedings.

Thus, the Port of Paita Captaincy reaffirms its commitment to deter all illegal activity in the maritime area of its jurisdiction.
