Less than a couple of weeks after the reopening of the Rafic Hariri International Airport in Beirut, Lebanon, the General Directorate of Internal Security Forces, Public Relations Division, announced a smuggling attempt.
The Lebanese ISF caught a man, identified as M. H. and born in 1982, trying to smuggle around 2 kilograms of cannabis out of Lebanon. The Hashish was put inside wrapped chocolate bars.
Upon being interrogated, the man confessed of heading to an Arab country. The Narcotics Control Bureau will expand the investigation with the detainee, based on the reference of the competent judiciary.
