    The news article should have said which country the shipment came from. For example, if Illegal drugs found among cargo coming out of America, the authorities there usually notify the Antigua authorities about the drugs and information on the cargo it is store in. Do the analysis in who’s drugs will be seized at Antigua port and whose would not.
