Iranian Police Intercept Huge Heroin Cargo En Route to Europe

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian anti-narcotics police commander announced on Tuesday that the country's law enforcement troops have intercepted a big drug cargo which contained 2 tons of heroin and was bound for Europe, adding that the seizure is Iran's Christmas gift to the European people.

Speaking to reporters here in Tehran on Tuesday, Commander of the anti-narcotics squad of Iran's Law Enforcement Police General Ali Moayyedi said that Iranian police, in line with its international and religious undertakings, took the necessary actions to discover the cargo after its intelligent operations showed that 2 tons of heroin were to be transited to Europe.

"If the cargo had been smuggled to Europe it would have endangered all the European people and resulted in the destruction of the human community," the commander noted.

"In a bid to prevent this from happening, the cargo was discovered and seized and it can be said that the Iranian police has given a Christmas gift to the European people on the eve of the new year."

Eastern Iran borders Afghanistan, which is the world's number one opium and drug producer. Iran's geographical position has made the country a favorite transit corridor for drug traffickers who intend to smuggle their cargoes from Afghanistan to drug dealers in Europe.

Iran leads international efforts in fighting drug networks and narcotic traffickers.

According to the statistical figures released by the UN, Iran ranks first among the world countries in preventing entry of drugs and decreasing demand for narcotics.

The United Nations credits Iran with the seizure of 89 percent of the opium netted around the world.

Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Iranian police have lost more than 3700 of their personnel in the country's combat against narcotics.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian Law Enforcement Police intercepted a large morphine cargo en route from the Southeastern province of Kerman to the country's Western borders and seized over 1.5 tons of morphine.

Kerman's Police Chief General Hossein Chenarian said his forces took the necessary actions after their intelligence operations against international drug network showed a cargo was to be trafficked from the Southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan to Kurdistan, Western Iran.

He said after receiving the intelligence his forces embarked on blocking drug transit routes and could eventually discover and seize 1,614kg of morphine and 71kg of opium from a fuel tanker during a checkpoint operation.

Last month, an astonishing operation by police forces along the country's Eastern borders had led to the discovery and seizure of the largest drug cargo in decades.

Commander of the Iranian Border Guard Units General Hossein Zolfaqari announced at the time that the drug cargo discovered by police troops weighted 11,036kg.

He said the seizure included 10,693kg of opium and 343 kg of hashish.

So you don't have an answer then... As I expected... :roll:

Typical response from you - you accuse others of being 'trolls' yet you exhibit all the features of one yourself...

You make an accusation: -

And when somebody picks you up on it you are completely unable to justify your claim...

No matter... I am quite happy to wait until tomorrow (or any time of your choosing) to discuss this matter with you... I'm sure it will be interesting...

So, until tomorrow then...?
