The Belgians, three friends from the neighbourhood of Waterloo, were Wednesday arrested together 3 French and 10 Brazilians. That happened in the port of Santos, off the coast of Sao Paulo. They had a total of 306 kilos of pure cocaine, neatly scattered about the baggage of the 16 tourists.
It were security guards of the ship ‘Costa Favolosa’ that the drugs discovered. The suitcases were already on the ship, but the tourists were not there yet. The sixteen tourists were at that time spread over the ship. It is not certain that they all know.“They didn't”
“A lawyer provided by the parents of seven Brazilian suspects was hired, claims that the tourists knew nothing,” writes the Brazilian newspaper Globo. Also a family member of one of the arrested Belgians, but it's hard to believe that they knew there were drugs in their luggage sat.
