30k liters of smuggled fuel seized in S Iran

TEHRAN, May 22 (MNA) – Police Commander of Anar County in Kerman province, southern Iran said that 30,000 liters of smuggled fuel has been confiscated in the region.

Colonel Sadegh Niknafas said that 30,000 liters of smuggled fuel have been confiscated from a heavy-duty truck.

One defendant has been detained in this regard, 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.
