Several officers of the Judicial Police are currently in the Port of Funchal, due to suspected drugs aboard the MSC Opera.
Five passengers, and it seems young, have been arrested. Some others may have been detained off the vessel under this operation.
Some of them, as well as their suitcases, left the ship moments ago, accompanied by officers of the Judiciary. The latter refused to confirm their detention.
The ship is moored in Funchal from 7am today, and is expected to depart at 5pm.
