Amsterdam, May 31 (Prensa Latina) At least six employees of companies operating at the Schiphol Airport in this capital have been arrested by Dutch security forces, accused of international cocaine trafficking.

The Dutch Gendarmerie (Marechaussee) announced the arrests, explaining that they had been accused of introducing cocaine shipments into the country through the said air terminal or carrying out preparatory acts to do so.

The suspects are all men aged 32 to 51. They came from several Dutch cities and belonged to a criminal organization dedicated to drug trafficking through the airport.

They worked at logistics, transport, and parcel-delivering companies in and around the airport.

The gendarmerie informed that several homes, commercial buildings, and vehicles were raided, and documents, phones, cars, a stun gun, and around 124,000 euros in cash and cryptocurrencies were seized during the investigation.
