Dubai: The Omani Coast Guard Police Command caught more than 322 smugglers and infiltrators of different nationalities who were trying to enter Omani illegally through the sea during the third quarter of 2020, local media reported.

According to Royal Oman Police, the coast guard managed to thwart several smuggling operations of drugs that occurred through the sea route.

Lieutenant Colonel Abdulaziz Al Jabri, Director of Operations at the Coast Guard Police Command said, “The coast guard policemen are subject to continuous rehabilitation and training to deal with all events that occur in the Omani territorial sea and risk their lives to combat smuggling and illegal immigration around the clock, especially in difficult times such as the night time fraught with risks and challenges.”

“The accumulated experience of the crews enabled them to deal with smuggling boats,” Al Jabri confirmed.
