Cocaine Trafficking

The cocaine trade is estimated to generate 90 billion dollars yearly. This episode will take us to Peru and the Amazon forest to meet with two ex-cocaleros detailing the production process and distribution network they have known for years, with rarely seen footage showing a record seizure of 300kg of pure cocaine and a special interview of the Peruvian anti-drug police chief. We will see at the end of the production chain how the drug is sold in London and other parts of Europe in small delicatessen stores where discretion is the key. One owner will give us insights into the way his "shop" operates, while Europol and IMF experts and Doctor Johns Collins from the London School of Economics will share their expertise about the cocaine business and money laundering, providing the larger context.
