The General Directorate of Drug Enforcement in Qatar, in a joint operation with the Polish police and Customs office, has thwarted an attempt to smuggle 5.8kg of heroin into Poland.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) informed this through a series of tweets yesterday.
The Polish authorities arrested the accused and seized the contraband that was hidden in his bag, thanks to the co-operation between the General Directorate of Drug Enforcement and the relevant bodies in Poland, the MoI said.
Earlier, the International Communication Section of the Department of Studies and International Affairs at the directorate had received information about an attempt by an European national to smuggle narcotics into Poland through Warsaw Chopin Airport.
The directorate took all measures in accordance with international conventions and laws, and through co-ordination with the relevant bodies in Poland, the ministry added, noting that the Polish authorities thanked Qatar “for this outstanding co-operation”.
Maj Mohamed Abdullah al-Khater, director of the Department of Studies and International Affairs at the directorate, stressed that Qatar is “exerting every effort to support the international community in addressing this serious scourge”.
