 ZATCA Thwarts an Attempt for Smuggling +2 Million Captagon Pills

The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) has successfully thwarted an attempt to smuggle 2,015,116 Captagon pills concealed in a consignment received to Al-Haditha Port.

A shipment of "tomatoes and pomegranates," as reported by ZATCA, has arrived at the port. Captagon pills were discovered among the "tomatoes and pomegranates" when the shipment was inspected by customs and screened with security technology.

ZATCA spares no effort to tighten its grip over the Kingdom's imports and exports. The Authority vows to ever be vigilant against any smuggling attempts in order to realize its goal of strengthening security and protecting society against these harmful substances and other contraband in coordination with the General Directorate of Narcotics Control (GDNC).

At the same time, the Authority has called on everyone to contribute to combating smuggling and protecting society and the national economy by reaching out to the Authority's number designated for security reports (1910), via e-mail at, or by the international number (00966114208417). Through these channels, the Authority receives and follows up on 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.​
