ROP anti-narcotics wing nabs khat trafficker in Dhofar region.

Dhofar: Anti-narcotics wing of the ROP last week arrested a person on charges of trafficking in khat (illegal local tobacco) in the Dhofar governorate.

Police had received a tip-off that a person was dealing in contraband product and was trafficking in khat.

Following investigations, the detectives raided his house and arrested him. They recovered six cartons from him containing 648 packages of khat. The accused has been handed over to the Public Prosecution for further investigations prior to preparing his case for trial.

The Royal Oman Police represented by the Directorate General of Inquiries and Criminal Investigation, in cooperation with the International Criminal Police Organisation, organised a workshop on the Interpol draft to combat maritime piracy.

Experts of the Interpol submitted working papers on the importance of the project and its objectives. The officials urged the participants to support law enforcement agencies in member countries to deal with such crimes.

The workshop was attended by a group of police officers belonging to various formations of the police and representatives from the Attorney General's branch.

Students of the Sultan Qaboos Academy of Police Science participated in the map and compass training course which was held last week.

The training programme included theoretical lessons and practical applications in the science of navigation with exercises on the ground to get to know the use of the compass and the map. This training will help the students in successfully tackling difficult marine challenges.

In order to provide the trainees of the armed forces with basic knowledge of the martial law and how to implement and develop their legal skills in the field of investigations and prosecutions in the military, the Institute of Officers conducted a course to develop the skills of military judges from May 12 to May 16.
