The two customs officers who were honoured are seen with al-Muhannadi and another official.
The customs officers at Hamad International Airport (HIA) foiled attempts to smuggle around 12.5kg of marijuana into the country in two separate operations.
In the first operation, the customs officer-in-charge, suspected the luggage of an Asian traveller and ordered a full search resulting in the confiscation of 6.5kg of marijuana.
In the second operation, another customs officer suspected the behaviour of another traveler and ordered that his luggage should be searched thoroughly. Accordingly, around 6kg of marijuana were found. Both the smugglers were arrested and handed over to the security department concerned to proceed with the necessary legal procedures.
Ahmed bin Ali al-Muhannadi, president of the General Authority of Customs (GAC), honoured the two officers and thanked them for their alertness.
He further stressed the efforts of the General Authority of Customs officers in protecting the society from the harmful effects of such illicit drugs.
