Items seized include food, personal hygiene items and beer.
In the Orinoco River, more than five tons of “logistical supplies” were found and confiscated from people engaged in illegal mining.
This was announced by General in Chief Domingo Hernández Lárez, Strategic Operations Commander of Fanab, on his social networks. He reported that everything was taken in a boat.
He did not specify the exact location of the seizure, only that it was in the Orinoco. He was in charge of the fanbase.
The cargo was released from the port of Inirida in Colombia and was destined for the Yapacana National Park in the Amazon, he said.
Among those seized were about four tonnes of chicken, 250 kg of onions, the same number of potatoes. As well as beer, bath soap, detergent, chlorine, cooking oil and egg cartons.
As well as bundles of pasta, cans of beer and mortadella. Plus a bank of 150 amp 12 volt batteries and 75 hp motors for the solar panels.
“Fanab will not allow the logistics flow to perpetuate the destruction of our ecosystems and national parks,” Hernandez Larrez closed.
