The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority was able to thwart an attempt to smuggle more than 2.3 million pills of Captagon at AlHadithah Port, found hidden in a truck coming to the Kingdom through the port.
The Authority explained that a truck was coming to the Kingdom through AlHadithah Port, and during the viewing and inspection process, 2,302,325 Captagon pills were found hidden inside a cavity in the floor of the truck that was planned and prepared for smuggling, as the pills were hidden in a technical way along its floor.
The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority confirmed that it continues to tighten customs control over the Kingdom's imports and exports. It is standing by the attempts of smugglers to achieve one of the essential pillars of its strategy represented in the security and protection of society.
