The Dutch and Belgian police may have found traces of Naima Jillal in a shed in the port of Antwerp. The 52-year-old key figure in the international cocaine trade was probably murdered after she was picked up by strangers from Amsterdam’s Zuidas at the end of 2019.
Garments and a handbag were found underground in the shed, reports het Parool. Trace research must reveal whether those of ‘Aunt’ are Naima Jillal. She probably was involved in multiple conflicts in the harsh drug environment. At least two teams were hunting her.
The Dutch-Moroccan Jillal, from Utrecht, did business with well-known cocaine smugglers, including Mustapha ‘Moes’ F. and Roger P., aka ‘Piet Costa’. In any case, the latter was interrogated as a witness about her disappearance, after the tip that the user of a telephone, which the police attributes to him, was involved.
In February, the police reported on a television program Investigation Requested to look for one ‘Bolle Jos’ in the disappearance case.
This concerns Jos L. (Breda, 1 July 1991) who in his twenties has already built up a formidable reputation as a ruthless and now immensely rich cocaine trader.
4,200 kilos of cocaine
The shed in which the police is now conducting a meticulous investigation, on the Haifastraat on the edge of the port of Antwerp, is the same where a batch of 4200 kilos of cocaine seized was taken after which fourteen suspects were arrested. Among them were eight young men from Amsterdam Southeast, who are still in prison in Belgium.
The Dutch drug gang had just removed the mega batch of drugs from a sea container, from a deck cargo of fish that had entered the harbor from South America.
Naima Jillal was picked up by a dark car at the Albert Heijn To Go on 20 October 2020 around 9:30 PM near her luxury apartment on Gustav Mahlerlaan in the heart of the Zuidas.
In the criminal environment, photos of a dead Jillal circulate that are said to be very shocking. It would show that limbs have been cut off.
The investigation has continued to investigate Jillal’s disappearance and recently came to the Antwerp harbor shed.
In recent days, together with the Belgian police, the Dutch team has searched with detection dogs, and has examined disturbances in the floor with a ground radar.
The soil in the shed has been partly excavated and sieved. As yet, no traces have been found of Jillal himself.
The investigation is ongoing.
