  • Description

    Greek Security Police on an international organisation of drug smugglers in Athens, Greece, Mar 1, after long surveillance on their activities.

    The organisation with headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon, and branches all over Europe, was first suspected when police investigated reports that small quantities of good quality hashish were being peddled in Athens.

    Investigating two cars owned by the organisation, police discovered 52 kilos of hashish - the largest quantity of narcotics ever discovered in Greece.

    One of the men, Michel Rizk, a Lebanese citizen, told police they had planned to introduce the "merchandise" into France and Italy.

    Greek authorities have advised both United Nations and the Interpol Central Office. The arrested men are being held in Athens prison pending trial.
