Four others have already been charged in connection with the seizure

Four more people are now facing formal charges over the record cocaine haul off the Cork coast last week.

The men who were arrested after the drugs were recovered from the MV Matthew cargo ship, are due before a sitting of Mallow District Court at 10 o'clock this morning.

The joint taskforce operation at sea last Tuesday netted over two tonnes of cocaine, worth at least 157 million euro.

Four others have already been charged in connection with the seizure and were remanded in custody.
