SOCU seeking forfeit of suspected drug proceeds seized from Venezuelan woman

Angelica Malave

The Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) has filed civil forfeiture proceedings against a Venezuelan woman, who was found in possession of a large amount of cash, suspected to be the proceeds of drug trafficking, at her East Bank Demerara residence in January last year.
