'There were drugs all over the place'

SOTOGRANDE The headline words were said in court yesterday at the trial of four people accused of trying to smuggle 2,850 kilos of hashish through Sotogrande aboard a yacht. The incident happened in August 2010; the yacht was searched and, to continue the Guardia Civil's testimony in court, "Every cabin, every corner, every cupboard was crammed with the drug. We had to climb over the bales to get inside." Suspicion had been raised because the boat was sailing very slowly and the bow was lower in the water than the stern. Four men - a Spaniard, a Frenchman, a Briton and a Moroccan- are facing charges at the Audiencia Provincial in Algeciras.
