Cigarettes seized by Jordanian customs

| May 23, 2013

The Jordan Customs Department (JCD) on Monday foiled an attempt to smuggle 203,000 packs of cigarettes into the country, according to a Jordan Times story.

The cigarettes were found in six containers.

The Times said the packs were seized, and were being held by the JCD ‘until’ the would-be smugglers paid their fines, which amount to about JD5 million.

It wasn’t clear what would happen to the cigarettes once the fines were paid.
