Dubai Customs foils smuggling of 3 million Captagon pills

Dubai Customs seized nearly three million captagon pills, which is the largest so far this year and foiled a major attempt to smuggle them into the country.

Inspection officers of the Sea Customs Centre Management at Jebel Ali Port thwarted the illegal shipment thanks to coordination between different sections coupled with the use of the best technologies, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported.

The Control Room, supported by the Siyaj monitoring unit, analysed all data of the suspected container, and based on that it was thoroughly checked at arrival with the help of the K-9 dog unit.

“Within our efforts at the Sea Customs centres to live up to the expectations of the (Safe Homeland) campaign, we have made many seizures to contribute to a safer trade and protect society from the hazards of amphetamines,” said Director of Sea Customs Centres Management Yousef Al Hashimi.

Al Hashimi confirmed the centres are well prepared and work at full capacity despite the challenges posed by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
