Warning from Drug packages from six countries come to Kuwait
kuwait city:-Only eight days were separated between a cautious circular from parcels from six countries and a package of seven kilograms of Captagon pills from one of those countries without being searched. The incident prompted customs officials to recognize the weak oversight of the success of drug trafficking just a week after customs directives to tighten inspection of packages from Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, China, Iran and Thailand. Concerned sources revealed that the low level of inspection of the air customs inspection and entry into the country allowed the entry of banned goods into the country, which was later seized with cooperation between the departments of drug control, search and investigation. The sources said that the shipment of the Captagon was seized in a company packed in candy boxes, and found that the cans were closed and never inspected. On a related note, the Minister of Finance d. Nayef al-Hajraf said that he intended to take measures “parallel to the size of what reveals the imbalances in the (customs).” Alhajraf called a number of customs leaders, and held intensive meetings last weekend in preparation for those procedures. The minister’s moves come in the light of what Qabas revealed last Sunday about security warnings of customs laxity and the involvement of employees in a number of cases.
