35K liters of smuggled fuel seized in Iran

TEHRAN, Feb. 28 (MNA) – The Police Chief of Bushehr Province said that 35,000 liters of smuggled fuel has been seized in Iran.

General Heidar Sousani said that a heavy-duty truck carrying 35,000 liters have been confiscated in Deylam County.

One defendant has been handed over to the authorities, he added.

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.
