After the investigation, it had been revealed that the Dutch pleasure boat has been used to smuggle drugs on a large scale so the Government should take some action instantly and should make more strict rules for anyone in order to get a license.
Along with the great revealed news about medications smuggling in Spain, the Operation Goleta-Gratil, one more news was revealed that the boat shipped with almost 6,000 kilos of smuggled stuff is also still not captured by the government and is floating free under the Dutch flag. The European organization alarmed them about easily given away of Dutch “ICP” certificate of Dutch boat, in order to control continuously raising cases of the Boat. It was considered that the registration for the boat is only given for water supply and some other accessories to Europe but later it was discovered that it was under the control of criminals and was used for illegal smuggling and money laundering.
Due to the damaged reputation of Spain, the Italian Government confined boats. Chief executive of the Maritime Analysis, Michael O’Sullivan informed Nieuwsuur that really Dutch boats were used for criminal purposes. But last year it seems they were permitted to use Dutch boats as they want (for smuggling) When they were questioned about it that why are they using ICP of Dutch boats? They replied, “Because it was danger-free!” Omtzigt reportedly said that this illegal business needs to be forcibly stopped and the government should not ignore such a big mess otherwise reputation of Spain and Italy will be continuously affected. He included that the Dutch boats should also be ban for the case of tax fraud and insurance. It was also doubted that maybe they are stolen or sold out illegally just for profit.
The representation of the infrastructure minister told Dutch media that according to the 1986 law of the United State, ICP boats can be used for sports and other legal businesses in 14 European countries. He concluded that he didn’t mean to speak on behalf of those people who are against its certification. “We all know about the tracks found on water that was founded, by all accounts, to be under the control of an International Certificate Pleziervaartuigen [ICP] conceded by the Netherlands,” he included.
‘The ICP is perceived by 14 European nations including Germany and France and is focused on individuals who appreciate watersports and need to cruise there with their yacht or speedboat. Fraud is not acceptable in any case that’s why we are working together with the cob in order to get rid of fraud and disloyalty as soon as possible.
