This is the largest case of targeting drug smuggling and drug production attempts in recent years by an international criminal group. The smuggling involved 2 tonnes of cocaine from Colombia worth about PLN 2 billion. They were to reach the territory of the European Union. Not only many Poles, but also of Europeans were saved from tears, tragedies and broken biographies  - the Prime Minister continued.

We have efficient financial, investigation and police services that operate at the highest level. It is criminals who should be afraid of a strong state; we cannot accept the situation when the citizens are afraid of criminals - summed up Mateusz Morawiecki.

An illegal drug factory and warehouse operated in the Wielkopolska voivodeship. The officers of the Pomeranian section of KAS and CBŚP from Gdańsk dismantled a large-scale drug smuggling group after observing its activities for many months in several voivodeships.
