Today, Wednesday, the Border Ports Authority announced that it had taken strict measures to curb drug smuggling, while noting that these measures made it difficult to smuggle.
The head of the authority, Omar Al-Waeli, said in a press statement, "The issue of drugs, and because of the strict provisions and procedures at the border crossings, is difficult to smuggle," noting that "smuggling is not through border crossings, but through unofficial ports or crossings."
Al-Waeli pointed out that “the quantities that the commission seizes of drugs are few through travelers,” explaining that “most of the drugs that are seized by arrivals, and less of them by travelers outside Iraq, and in small quantities.”
He added, "It is difficult to smuggle through the border ports because there are many measures taken by the ports to prevent smuggling."
