Spanish-based associates of the Kinahan cartel are continuing to operate multi-million-euro drug shipments despite sanctions being imposed on the gang.

The Irish Independent has learned that a number of the crime group’s key lieutenants are continuing to operate independently out of their Spanish base to run their drugs network importing cocaine and cannabis into the Irish and UK market.
