Two smugglers’ boats seized

With Customs and a team from the coast guard working jointly with the police on this operation, the coast guard boarded and seized two boats 15 miles off Famagusta the day before yesterday. The ‘Sirena’ and ‘Flamengo’ were both carrying contraband cigarettes and all crew were arrested.

The two captured boats were visited by Minister of Finance Ersin Tatar yesterday. He then gave a press conference praising the various organisations involved and saying that these activities should help in stopping loss of revenue from an important source.
