Dubai Customs Thwarts Attempt To Smuggle 5 Million Captagon Pills
(13 January 2019)

 

Cooperation between different customs departments and good planning have led to thwarting an attempt to smuggle large number of captagon pills at Jebel Ali & Tecom Customs Centre, just a few days before 2019 unfolds.

The illegal shipment was tracked by customs intelligence personnel who shared the information and images of the shipment through the Regional Intelligence Liaison Office (RILO).

The Regional Intelligence Liaison Office (RILO) is a regional centre for collecting and analysing data, which also disseminates information throughout the global customs network. As a fundamental pillar of the World Customs Organisation (WCO)’s Enforcement Strategy, Intelligence and Information Exchange is facilitated through eleven (11) RILOs covering the six (6) regions of the WCO.

The RILO informed of a drug shipment in a nearby country, and by analysing and comparing the data, the team at Jebel Ali & TECOM Customs Centre decided to track similar shipment coming into Dubai in a container that had vehicle spare parts from a country that doesn’t normally trade with spare parts. The container was tracked through the smart Vessel Tracking System, developed by Dubai Customs.

The container was scanned, and with the help of the customs K-9 Dog unit, 5 million captagon pills that weighed 500 kg were seized. This raises the number of captagon pills seized since January 2018 to 15 million pills.

Jebel Ali and TECOM Customs Centre has made 19 seizures between 2016 and 2019. These included 225 million narcotic pills and 51 kg of other drugs.

Commenting on the seizure, Director of Dubai Customs Ahmed Mahboob Musabih pointed out all customs departments work and coordinate together to combat illegitimate trade and thwart any narcotic drugs smuggling attempt.

Shuaib Al Suwaidi, Customs Intelligence Director at Dubai Customs, revealed they track shipments on their way to Dubai’s entry points based on numerous data and intelligence resources.
