 An Asian expatriate was arrested at Kuwait International Airport in possession of one kilogram of betel leaves, says Al-Seyassah. According to sources, customs officers were checking the luggage of passengers who arrived from an Asian country when they came across a bag of betel leaves inside the baggage of one of the passengers.

After they seized him and questioned him, he confessed to smuggling the betel leaves into the country to use with his friends. He was arrested and referred with the confiscated betel leaves to the Drugs Control General Department for necessary legal action. Meanwhile, a Syrian driver of a heavy vehicle was arrested at Abdali border checkpoint in possession of a piece of hashish.
