Polish rapper Cypis (pictured right) says he will now be taking legal action against the manufacturer for using his song without permission after the ‘child-friendly’ toy billed as being ‘cute and fun’ was found singing his song ‘Where is the white eel’.
The boxes of bananas and the cocaine, which was packed in small green packages, were sent to Carrefour outlets in Warsaw from the firm’s main supply warehouse in Rawa Mazowiecka.
Officers found over 144 barrels containing the drug after it had travelled from Ecuador to Hamburg and then by road to Gdynia. Three men in their 60s and 70s have now been charged and held for questioning.
The seven traffickers belonging to a Colombian drugs cartel hid the cocaine in 74 bags which cops seized in a dramatic swoop on Gdynia port. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was quick to praise the police and tax authorities who used the ‘latest technology’ to track down and pre-empt the traffickers and said: “On a European scale, it was a very fruitful operation, as it thwarted the spreading of drugs throughout the whole continent.”
