The South African Council for the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction was assisting the police with the 'Lada'. The ship was currently arrested and remained anchored in Algoa Bay while the police have roped in other agencies to assist with the investigation. This comes after a criminal case of alleged contravention of the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction Act and the Explosives Act had been registered at the Swartkops police station on Aug 21. The South African Maritime Safety Authority has since been called in and has declared that all the “dangerous goods” on the vessel are stored correctly in terms of international law. However, the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation – the Hawks – which detained the ship on Aug 19, remained tight-lipped on the criminal investigation. The bust came after the police’s Explosives Unit raided the vessel when it docked at the Port of Ngqura. 34 containers carrying explosives and components were found on board, of which 14 were destined for SA and due to be offloaded at the port. The 14 containers destine for South Africa had permits. The remaining 20 containers were destined for Lagos in Nigeria and for the US. The 'Lada' has not moved from its position since Aug 20.
