During the operation, four postal items were intercepted, in which four kilograms of marijuana and 15,000 pills were hidden.
A COLT PYTHON revolver like the one used in the 1996 murder of the journalist was also discovered buried.
The movie “Veronica Guerin“, starring Cate Blanchett, tells the story of this journalist.
