Drugs from Albania to Italy, traffickers change strategy

Drugs from Albania to Italy, traffickers change strategy

 Narcotics and weapons trafficking in Italy is not made any more through couriers traveling by boat, but by small planes or small two-seater aircraft. 

Italian media, "La Repubblica" claims that the investigation and the figures speak for a new channel to supply criminal organizations. Seizures at Port of Bari are reduced, this not only thanks to  accurate technologies applied by "Guradia di Finanza". 

With the international terrorism alert and increasingly strict controls at border customs, criminal groups have decided to change strategy. Now the transport across the Adriatic is done by small planes, able to traverse long distances.

"La Repubblica" mentions the case of the last summer when Carabinieri reported in Ostuni a plane with 3.5 tons of marijuana coming from Albania.

Puglia, according to Italian media, but an intersection point of the international trafficking routes for drugs and arms, is already a base of arrival and departure of small civilian aircraft. Preferred destination for two-seater aircraft, which are capable of carrying 2 people and 30 kg commodity, is between Bari and Brindisi where there are located hidden segments of asphalt between the grass much needed for landing. In this place they get furnished, according to Italian media and head towards northern Italy and Albania.
