Cocaine traces have been found at the European Parliament.
The Sat-1 channel sent reporters to take 46 swabs from toilets and other public areas of the Brussels buildings. Nearly all tested positive for cocaine.
A European Parliament spokeswoman said cocaine abuse was not a problem among staff working at the buildings.
A professor who analysed the samples said the amounts found were too great to have been carried in on clothing.
“It simply reflects the fact that cocaine was brought in there,” Professor Fritz Sorgel of the Institute for Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Research in Nuremberg (IBMP) told the BBC News website.
“The amount was too high and found in too many spots. It shows it was brought in deliberately.”
Wow, that’s a newsflash. Traces of cocaine, a highly addictive drug, easily available, found in a location inhabited by a lot of people every day of the year.
I think it’d be fun to do the same tests at Buckingham Palace, The White House, The Vatican, The Kremlin, Zhongnanhai, and The Kaaba. I bet you’d find similar traces of coke and a variety of other substances.
