The Investigation Department of the commission said, in a statement yesterday, Sunday, which was viewed by "Al-Iqtisad News", that "a team from the Wasit investigation office was able to seize the customs affairs official at the Zurbatiya customs center because he had allowed one of the companies to enter large quantities of goods covered by the customs exemption" Without downloading those quantities into the customs exemption record. "
The Investigation Department added that "the official’s excesses led to the company exceeding its balance of the exempted goods."
And the department indicated that "the amount of overtaking reached 27 thousand tons, which resulted in damage to the public money by an amount exceeding two billion dinars, representing the value of the customs fee for the goods that were entered in the interest of the company above its exempted balance."
And it confirmed that "a fundamental arrest record was seized with the seizures in the operation that was carried out according to a judicial arrest warrant, and presented the company with the accused to the judge of the Badra Investigation Court, who decided to arrest the accused and take appropriate legal measures against him."
