The three Greeks arrested are a bank director, a bank employee and a customs officer serving at the Customs Office of Niki, who had undertaken to study the way the cocaine would be transported from Thessaloniki to fYRoM and then to Serbia.
Authorities also arrested a woman, a Serbian national, who lived together with the bank employee, after finding in their possession a small quantity of hashish and cocaine. A gun and a large
number of cartridges were found in the house of the customs officer.
The Greek authorities acted in cooperation with Britain’s SOCA, the United States’ DEA, Serbian and fYRoM authorities.
