 - Local - Oct 13

23 powerboats have been seized by the Maltese Customs Department suspected to be used to smuggle migrants from Libya.

The Strategic Trade and Sanctions Monitoring unit had got light of the issue and cut off 23 containers, each one with a powerboat inside.

The boats were laid off their initial voyage in line with a legal notice intended to mitigate smuggling activities in the Mediterranean.
