As part of the investigation of the discovery of 11.5 tonnes of cocaine in a container of scrap metal that was shipped to Belgium more than a month ago, ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) are sorting over 50,000 images which were retrieved after they were deleted from a Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) scanner database.
Minister of Home Affairs Robeson Benn yesterday told reporters that while the process is ongoing, details about who removed the images during the scanning process have already been established.
“I think there is some difficulty because over 50,000 images were provided to the CANU. They are trying nevertheless to examine them. But for sure it is known who removed the images, the dates and the times,” Benn said, while adding that the perpetrator is the subject of investigations which are being carried out by both CANU and the GRA.
