Zr. Ms. Holland arrived in the Caribbean

HNLMS_HollandWILLEMSTAD - Zr.Ms. Holland has arrived in the Caribbean. The new station ship will be used for the next 3.5 months to intercept drug transports and to support the Coast Guard.

Even before her ceremonial entry, she has already provided a successful assistance to the Coast Guard. With the two FRISC’s of the Holland a search has been conducted south of Curaçao in search of a vessel with undocumented migrants. On arrival, they found an empty, stranded vessel.

The further search on land by, among others, the local police, resulted in a detention of 20 undocumented migrants with Venezuelan nationality.
