Drugs brought from Iraq
KUWAIT CITY, Oct 15: The Court of Cassation upheld the decision of a lower court that sentenced an Iraqi and a Kuwaiti, in absentia, to seven years in prison with hard labor for smuggling psychotropic substances to Kuwait through Abdally border using a drone — the first of its kind in the country.
Case files indicate that officers from the Drug Control General Department (DCGD) in the Ministry of Interior arrested a citizen who smuggled drugs into the country — four kilograms of amphetamine and one kilogram of hashish.
The accused used a drone to smuggle these illegal substances from Iraq. During investigation, the citizen admitted that he has been smuggling drugs through the unmanned plane across the border for some time. He disclosed that his friends in Iraq communicated with him by telephone and they plan the smuggling operation.
He usually camps at the border, then he sends the drone to the Iraqi side, where his partners put the drugs on it, then flies it back within 20 minutes. Upon receiving the drugs, he returns home to pack the drugs for distribution the next day. By Jaber Al-Hamoud Al-Seyassah Staff and Agencies
