An Internal Security Forces (ISF) policeman recently stopped a white Nissan car that was reeking of poultry, the ISF said in a statement on Wednesday.
The car, driven by 25-year-old Syrian national “A.K.” was found to contain a large quantity of poultry – more than 150 kg – being transported through the Ouzai area of southern Beirut on September 13th, in a manner that violates health standards.
The man was detained and interrogated at the Ouzai police station, and his vehicle was seized by the ISF.
The seized poultry was also destroyed properly under the supervision of a representative of the Public Health Ministry.
The detainee has since been transferred to the judicial unit of the southern suburbs of Beirut for further investigation, based on a judicial notice, according to the ISF.
