Kuwait Interior Ministry seized 25 million KD worth Captagon pills




Kuwait: The Kuwait Ministry of Interior has thwarted an attempt to smuggle a huge amount of Captagon into the country, according to a statement issued on Friday.

The ministry's Undersecretary Lt. Gen. Sulaiman Al-Fahad supervised the effort to foil the major attempt to bring 10 million Captagon pills worth KD 25 million into the country, the statement added.

The captagon was professionally hidden in a container coming from Turkey.

The back-to-back blows by the Drugs Control General Department (DCGD) against drug traffickers offer evidence of the alertness and readiness of the security bodies to protect the country, the statement quoted Al-Fahad as saying.

For his part, the DCGD Director General Colonel Walid Al-Derei said that the mission was fulfilled in cooperation with the General Administration of Customs.

He added that they were tipped off by a secret source, who said that the captagon would be hidden in a container of cleaning materials coming from Turkey.

A plan was drawn up, allowing the drugs to enter through Al-Shuwaikh port. It was followed till it reached an open area in Jeleeb Al-Shuyoukh neighborhood.

There, it was being watched for three days, then a 28-year old Syrian came to receive it and was caught red-handed, Al-Derei.
