Qatar's Ministry of Interior, Polish authorities thwart smuggling attempt

By QLCrime

The General Directorate of Drug Enforcement in Qatar, together with the Polish police and Customs office, has foiled an attempt to smuggle 5.8kg of heroin into Poland.

The International Communication Section of the Department of Studies and International Affairs at the directorate had received a tip-off about the attempt, leading to the arrest of the European citizen.

The Polish authorities at Warsaw Chopin Airport confiscated the smuggled drug, which was hidden inside a bag, and arrested the accused.

This was made possible due to the co-operation between the General Directorate of Drug Enforcement and the relevant bodies in Poland, the MOI said in a tweet.

The directorate took all measures in line with international conventions and laws, and successfully thwarted the smuggling attempt through coordination with the relevant bodies in Poland.

The Polish authorities thanked Qatar “for this outstanding co-operation,” MOI added.

Director of the Department of Studies and International Affairs at the directorate, Maj Mohamed Abdullah Al Khater stressed that Qatar is “exerting every effort to support the international community in addressing this serious scourge”.
