Six crew members arrested on a tugboat off the coast of Crete last week after it was found carrying more than 6 tons of marijuana will be questioned by a prosecutor in Piraeus on Monday.

The six Syrian nationals stand accused of drug smuggling and organized crime for allegedly trying to sail to Malta, where the Tanzania-flagged Andreas was slated to undergo repairs, with the biggest stash of marijuana ever seized by Greek authorities.

Experts put the street value of the drugs at over €7 million.
