Saudi police have seized a large quantity of drug-like herb known as Qat, stuffed inside rice and date packs by a Sri Lankan smuggler.

'Sabq' newspaper said police stopped the driver on a motorway in the southern province of Jazan near the border with Yemen after suspecting its cargo.

“They found nearly 450 packs of Qat stuffed inside rice and date boxes. The Sri Lankan was arrested and the drugs were confiscated,” it said.

    Is this what you call bravery or mere corruption, knowing very well punishment wont be anything less than death?

    This must have been a link with Duminda Silva the Druglord. Sri Lankan Government should arrest him otherwise he would help other drug dealers to import the drugs into the country illegally.
