Police said they are working closely with Interpol to close in on the drug trafficking suspects linked to a major drug bust at Durban Harbour.
About 800 kilogrammes of dagga was confiscated on Friday with an estimated street value of R12.5 million.
It is understood that the drugs had been concealed in re-stitched charcoal bags and hidden in a container behind fruit juice and car engine parts.
Police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge said they believe the syndicate operates between Gauteng and the Netherlands.
“This is more of an international syndicate, therefore…we work very closely with [Interpol],” he said.
