Saudi Arabia: An attempt to smuggle 460,000 Captagon pills was foiled

An attempt to smuggle 460,000 Captagon pills at Duba port in Saudi Arabia was foiled. The Saudi Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority said that the narcotic pills hidden inside the machinery have been seized. According to the official Saudi Press Agency, two people, the expected recipients of this shipment, have also been detained.

It should be noted that Saudi Arabia keeps announcing from time to time to thwart the smuggling of narcotic pills. In Saudi Arabia, drugs usually come from Syria and are transported via Lebanon via cargo such as fruits and vegetables. These pills are manufactured in Syria and Lebanon. Earlier in May, Saudi authorities announced the seizure of 8.28 million Captagon tablets hidden in a shipment of coffee creamers. 5 persons involved in smuggling were arrested.
