In a bizarre case described as ‘the first of its kind in Kuwait,’ customs officers yesterday confiscated a shipment containing forged 100 fils valued at KD 2,000 in total before it made its way inside Kuwait. Customs officers became suspicious of a parcel weighing nearly 127 kilograms that arrived at Kuwait International Airport from an Asian country. They obtained a warrant to open and search the parcel, upon which they discovered the fake coins. Concerned authorities were informed about the smuggling attempt, and legal action is being taken.
