KUWAIT, Aug 10 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced on Wednesday that it has confiscated 1.5 million pills of the amphetamine-like drug Captagon, which were stashed in two containers that came from Ukraine.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah oversaw the seizure during a visit he made to the Interior Ministry's anti-drugs department, said a statement issued by the ministry.
Moreover, the statement noted that security forces are capable of averting all threats to the security of the nation. "We will strike with an iron fist all those who seek to do harm to the country," Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khaled said.
Furthermore, he said that such practices serve to motivate security personnel to hone their skills to combat all threats, describing them as the eyes that never slumber.
Meanwhile, the statement revealed that two individuals, a Syrian and a Saudi, have been apprehended in connection to the incident and will face legal action.
It also added that the two have confessed to bringing in copious amounts of the drug on a clandestine mission. (end) aas.nam
