Diesel smuggling thwarted

 Customs officers of Shuwaikh Port thwarted an attempt to smuggle 20 containers of diesel to a branch of a local company in another GCC country. According to sources, an inspector suspected the containers and opened it to discover it contained a type of oil that is allowed to be exported with the approval of the environmental authority.

However, he discovered pure diesel hidden at the bottom of the container. A sample was taken, which they tested and confirmed it is pure diesel. The items were referred to the concerned authorities for necessary legal action against the exporting company. Director of General Customs Department Khalid Al-Saif appreciated the customs officers for their efficiency in discovering the attempt to smuggle diesel overseas.
