Philippines: cocaine search targets Chinese divers?

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency – PDEA, suspects Chinese divers of operating to search for cocaine floating on the sea surface in the Bicol and Caraga regions. Investigators believe that the Chinese appearing in these regions are only using diving as a cover, and are actually interested in fishing for cocaine.

The suspicions against divers from the Middle Kingdom were announced by PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino at a specially convened press conference. He also admitted that his agency is investigating the matter.

Rumours have also been confirmed that packets of cocaine have been found floating on the surface of the sea in the Philippine regions of Dinagat Islands and Bicol. The information provided shows that in April 2019, fishermen fished out at least 40 packets containing drugs near Burgos.

The total weight of the cocaine that was fished out was close to 40 kilograms, and each packet containing the drug had a “3B Bugatti” marking, similar to the one found on 40 packets fished out in February 2019, near San Isidro, in the province of Surigao del Norte.
