At least 40 kg of cannabis has been confiscated by Maltese police after officers intercepted a car in Swieqi.
Inside the car, police found 14 carton boxes with the cannabis hidden inside. The driver and the passenger, two Sicilian men aged 36 and 46, one of whom lives in St Paul’s Bay, were arrested.
A 61-year-old Maltese man from Santa Venera is reportedly helping the police with the investigation and may be arraigned himself as well.
The men are expected to be chared in court on Thursday. Magistrate Neville Camilleri is conducting an inquiry.
