Panamanian authorities intercept $90-million drug shipment on ship coming from Cuba en route to Turkey

Panamanian authorities on Saturday intercepted 46 suitcases containing an estimated $90 million in illegal drugs on a cargo ship that arrived from a Cuban port and was en route to Istanbul, Turkey. The suitcases contained 1,517 packages of drugs hidden in a container declared as containing charcoal.

Authorities are still investigating and no arrests have been made. There has been no confirmation the drugs originated in Cuba, but the Turkish government has close ties to the Castro dictatorship. Moreover, the Castro dictatorship has a long history of drug trafficking in partnerships with drug cartels and the Colombian narco-terrorist organization, FARC.
