75k liters of smuggled fuel seized in S Iran

TEHRAN, Jan. 05 (MNA) – Police Chief of Sistan and Baluchestan province Brigadier General Mohammad Ghanbari said on Thursday that 75,000 liters of smuggled fuel have been confiscated in Nimruz County.

Brigadier General Ghanbari said that 75,000 liters of smuggled fuel has been confiscated from three heavy-duty trucks.

Some three defendants have been detained in this regard, he further noted.

Subsidized fuel in Iran is seen as an opportunity for smugglers to draw huge benefits. Iran, however, re-imposed using fuel cards and rationed gasoline back in November 2019 which was aimed in part to take the smuggling under control.
