China seizes 4.5 tonnes of drugs in border anti-narcotics enforcement



Chinese authorities have seized 4.5 tonnes of various drugs in their efforts to combat narcotics at border ports in the first half of this year.

The National Immigration Administration (NIA) who announced this on Tuesday said the raid led to the arrest of 381 criminal suspects.

As of Monday, these operations have successfully cracked 284 such drug-related cases, with 59 cases involving drugs weighing over 10,000 grams each.

The NIA has ramped up its crackdown on drug-related crime in border areas, with a particular emphasis on stemming drug inflows.

It planned to further implement measures to bolster anti-drug enforcement.

These included stepping up investigations into violations, tightening control at border ports, targeting drug-trafficking rings and networks, including their leaders, and enhancing law enforcement cooperation with various countries and regions.
