The number of women among the drug smugglers has recently increased, first deputy chief of the Main Operation and Investigation Office at the State Customs Committee Guloglan Muradli said on the last day of the seminar for journalists organized in Sheki. He noted that in the past years alone the total number of women has reached 14%: "In 87 cases in 2018, women carried drugs in their body cavities."
He noted that some men even attract their women, wifes, mothers and sisters to this case: "Naturally, they are forced to do so. According to the information of the Health Ministry, the country accounts for over 31,000 drug addicts."
Murali noted that the smuggle of a total of 1,193 tons of narcotic substances was presented by the State Customs Committee last year: "Heroine constituted 1,037 tons."
