Dunkirk: commando operation and hostage-taking on the "Trudy", a ship involved in drug trafficking


Several people got on board in the middle of the night, while the boat was immobilized by customs in Dunkirk (North).

The scenario is that of an action film against a background of mafia and drug trafficking.

But it happened for real, on the night of Sunday to Monday in Dunkirk (North).

Several people boarded the "Trudy", a ship that has been stationed at the dock since early October after customs seized a ton of cocaine there.

LCI reports that the crew, which is no longer the same as at the time of the seizure on October 1, was sequestered for a period of four or five hours from about 1 hour.

The commando left before dawn, around 5 a.m.

The maritime gendarmerie has opened an investigation.

Reprisals, information or recovery of goods?

The “Trudy”, which flies a Liberian flag, was carrying chalk that it was to unload in Antwerp (Belgium).

He came from Brazil and had stopped over in Spain.

La Voix du Nord specifies that the commando consisted of ten to twenty people, who were armed.

No arrests have been made so far.

The daily specifies that the attackers, some of whom could be Russian, managed to thwart the security of the port.

He mentions three possibilities which could constitute the motivations of this armed group: to obtain information, to retaliate, even to recover drugs.

No one would have been hurt.

The judicial police were also seized.

The members of the commando would all have managed to flee the enclosure of the port after their misdeeds.

The original crew of the boat consisted in particular of Russians, Filipinos, Egyptians, Ukrainians and Ethiopians among around twenty nationalities in total.

They were all taken into custody and brought to justice.
