Saudi Arabia is the country of freedom, democracy… and fight against drug trafficking.
In early 2020, Saudi authorities declared that they have foiled an attempt to smuggle 20 million amphetamine tablets into the country. According to the spokesperson of the General Directorate for Narcotics Control, Captain Muhammad Bin Khaled Al-Najidi, the proactive security follow-up of the activities of criminal networks that smuggle narcotic substances into the Kingdom resulted in foiling an attempt to smuggle about 20,190,500 amphetamine tablets hidden inside a grapes shipment.
Jeddah Port was in the center of the investigation.
Captain Khaled Al-Najidi stated that 8 people involved in these operations were arrested inside the Kingdom.
The only problem in this successful security story is that the real drug trafficking scale in Saudi Arabia is much higher and the seized batch is just a drop in the ocean.
