GIS – 12 August 2019: An Ivorian passenger was intercepted by the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) Customs Department on Sunday 4 August 2019 at the SSR International Airport on the basis of profiling.  The passenger purged 75 pellets of drugs at the hospital to the tune of Rs 17.7 million.
 
In fact, the luggage of the 34-year-old Ivorian was scanned and examined since he had replied inconsistently to the questions of the Customs Officers.  However, nothing incriminating was found therein.
 
Moreover, the Anti-Drug Smuggling Unit (ADSU) proceeded for the medical examination of the passenger as it was suspected that the latter had swallowed pellets of drugs.
