On the night of Thursday to Friday, the Coast Guard on Curaçao intercepted a boat with eleven Venezuelans and 1400 kilos of cocaine on board. The Coast Guard shot was shot to bring the boat to a halt. In addition, a Venezuelan man was injured on the boat. He had to be treated urgently in the hospital.
Prime Minister Gilmar Pik Pisas, who is also Minister of Justice, visited the Coast Guard in the middle of the night and later posted photos of the many bales of drugs seized on his Facebook page. He called it a beautiful, successful action by the Coast Guard who worked with the islands police and immigration service.
The eleven Venezuelans arrested wanted to enter Curaçao illegally. They were tested for corona immediately upon arrival and are stuck.
