KUWAIT CITY, Feb 7: The security authorities successfully intercepted a significant shipment at the port of Shuwaikh, seizing a staggering 13,422 bottles of alcohol concealed within the cargo. This marks the largest confiscation of imported alcohol this year, valued at over one million Kuwaiti dinars.
The operation was meticulously overseen by key figures including Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Acting Minister of the Interior, Sheikh Fahd Al-Yousef, alongside the Acting Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior, Lieutenant General Sheikh Salem Al-Nawaf, and other senior officials such as Major General Hamid Al-Dawas and Brigadier General Muhammad Qabazard. Their collaboration with the General Administration of Customs was pivotal in executing the seizure.
