KUWAIT CITY, Oct 17: In a strange case, and what is believed to be the first of its kind, the customs officers have seized about 127 kilos of counterfeit coins in the 100 fils denomination equivalent to 2,000 dinars, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
The customs department suspected the contents of the sea freight parcel coming from an Asian country and after opening, the coins were found. A customs source said it is difficult for a non expert to distinguish between the genuine and counterfeit coin.
Director-General of the General Administration of Customs Counselor Jamal Al-Jalawi has praised the vigilance and efficiency of all customs officers and their determination to put an end to smuggling attempts of all kinds.
