The investigators seized the narcotic and seized the remaining 11 passengers, all of Russian nationality. The detainees went to jail to appear and testify about the illegal cargo, and the judge has sent them to preventive detention, while they destroyed the cocaine in the vicinity of the port of Praia.

The Russian embassy has been informed of the facts and is waiting to know the causes of the death of the 2 sailors during the voyage, in a search that points to a brawl, probably due to the illegal cargo they carried.
