Today, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior announced the opening of an urgent investigation into the case of the escape of a suspect who tried to enter 18 kilograms of narcotic hashish during a search of his luggage at the Salmi border crossing, in order to find out the circumstances of the incident.
Commenting on the incident, Kuwaiti Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Khaled Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah said: "No one is above the law, whoever he is, and take the necessary measures against the negligent, whether they are cooperative or negligent".
The details of the strange case, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Anbaa, go back to last Wednesday, when a citizen brought 18 kilos of hashish and then fled from the land port, taking advantage of not being arrested by the security gate.
The newspaper quoted a security source as saying that the Kuwaiti citizen came to the country by land in his car from abroad, where he was asked to unload all his bags and pass the car on x-rays for fear of the presence of additional drugs inside.
He added: After making sure that the vehicle was free of drugs and the customs men began to search the luggage, he fled by car from the port gate, which is subject to security supervision, leaving the bags in which the hashish was seized, and the accused is still hiding.
