$37m Ghanaian drugs busted in Hamburg

Posted by Business in Ghana on March 27, 2009

German customs stumbled across 28 million euros (37 million dollars) worth of illegal drugs hidden amongst seven tonnes of pineapples in Hamburg harbour, officials said yesterday.  “While unloading a ship from Ghana, we came across a container full of pineapples meant to be delivered to a fashion boutique in Western Germany,” custom official, Dietmar Schulze said.  “It seemed bizarre that a clothing store would order 15 tonnes of pineapples so we launched an investigation.”  Scanning and searching the container revealed that it contained five and a half tonnes of marijuana as well as 18 kilograms hashish—both preparations of cannabis. Schulze said it was the biggest drug bust for more than 15 years.

    This is a big disgrace to our country.The attitude of extolling anybody who has money irrespective of where they got the money from should be a thing of the past.

    As a nation,this drug menace does us no good especially on the international front.Let us try very hard to depoliticize this major issue and fight hard to erase this problem from our system.It is now abundantly clear that this issue transcends all political coloring.
