(SBU) MSC Joanna 704A arrived at 2225 hours on Feb 13. Both
containers have been offloaded by Dubai Ports Authority and are being
held by Dubai Customs. ICE reports that the original seals check out
-- which means there are no signs of the containers being tampered
with. Currently both containers are with Dubai Customs for
inspection, "cracking" (opening) and then re-sealing. Dubai Customs
will provide a detailed report -- and arrangements will be completed
for re-delivery of the containers to Norfolk, VA - probably next
week.
