Rise in drug trafficking in Brussels

Brussels’ federal finance ministry has reported that almost 30 tonnes of illegal drugs were seized by customs authorities in the first 6 months of 2020, an increase of more than 15% compared with the same period last year. The ministry announced that they are now using new initiatives to enhance security including a ‘sideloader’ scanner which can scan shipping containers without requiring traders to deliver the containers to fixed scanners.
