Comments indicated that the Kuwaiti Land Customs “Nuwaiseeb” seized a total of 1305 boxes of different types of cigarettes in the car of a Saudi national. Comments added that the Saudi national attempted to smuggle these quantities worth around BD12,000 from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia and were confiscated by the Kuwaiti Land Customs.
