At least 10 barrels of pseudoephedrine, which is a key ingredient to manufacture a few types of legal drugs as well as methamphetamine, were found at Ezeiza international airport yesterday. Each weighed around 25 kilograms, meaning that there was at least 250 kilograms of the stuff. And, not for the first time in Argentina mind you, it’s all causing quite a stir in political circles. The barrels were brought in from France by a Paraguayan company and were supposedly “in transit” to Paraguay but the “importers never claimed them,” according to La Nación. In fact, he had already been providing information to the judicial system before being removed from his post.
