Worth their weight

The Kingdom Detective Cooperation Team RST Aruba detained a suspect about to leave for the Netherlands carrying 50 kilos of gold with a value of US $2.1 million. The passenger of Venezuelan origin transporting 46 bars and other pieces was caught at the airport based on information from the Netherlands’ Financial Investigation Service FIOD and in cooperation with other authorities on the island and in Curaçao. The bust would seem to confirm the smuggling of gold out of Venezuela via neighbouring Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, one of President Maduro’s arguments to recently close the sea- and air connections with the so-called ABC islands.
