 ZATCA Foils Attempt to Smuggle Nearly 3 Million Captagon Pills at King Abdulaziz Port

The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) succeeded in foiling an attempt to smuggle 2,972,400 Captagon pills hidden in incoming consignments to the Kingdom through King Abdulaziz Port.

ZATCA stated that the Captagon pills were in incoming consignments to the Kingdom via King Abdulaziz Port, and that the pills were seized following customs inspection using security technologies. The illegal pills were hidden inside the wooden board.

After the Captagon pills were seized, the two-contraband recipient inside the Kingdom were arrested in collaboration with the General Directorate of Narcotics Control (GDNC), added ZATCA.

ZATCA spares no effort to tighten its grip over the Kingdom's imports and exports. ZATCA vows to ever be vigilant against any smuggling attempts in order to realize its goal for strengthening the security and protecting society against these harmful substances.

At the same time, the Authority has called on everyone to contribute to combating smuggling and protecting the society and national economy by reaching out to the Authority's number designated for security reports (1910), via e-mail or by the international number (00966114208417). The Authority, through these channels, receives and follows up reports related to smuggling crimes and violations of the Common Customs Law in strict confidence, with a financial reward given to the whistleblower if the reported information is proven correct.​
