The inspection and warehousing officers at the customs of the northern ports at Shuwaikh port thwarted an attempt to smuggle two twenty-foot containers after they suspected it, as it was caught on its way out of the country for export.

And after they were thoroughly inspected, they found manhole covers that contradict the description of the goods in the customs declaration, which states that the goods were iron (Sawaleh) that had come to an Asian country to deceive and mislead the customs inspector, but the inspector, with his experience and vigilance, thwarted this attempt.
