“The acts came to light thanks to the active cooperation of the management of the container terminal,” the public prosecutor reported.
Both the police and the public prosecutor emphasise the success of the tip-off line (www.onzehavendrugsvrij.be), which has been active for over a year, and on which very useful tips are regularly given. “They have already played an important part in judicial investigations several times,” they said according to Het Nieuwsblad.
The tip-off line is not an initiative of the police or judiciary, clarified Kristof Aerts from the Antwerp public prosecutor’s office. However, the initiators, including the Antwerp Port Company and Cepa, that arranges port labour, pass on all useful tips and information to the right authorities.
