Broker trapped by Dubai customs

DUBAI: An Asian broker tried to bribe the customs employees in order to release the banned items which were detained by the Dubai Port inspectors.

The inspector told the prosecutor that he accepted a smaller sum from the Asian dealer to release a diesel shipment for him as part of a trap set by the police.

He said that the dealer offered Dh28, 000 later to have another shipment released although it contained items which are not allowed into the UAE.

The Arabic language daily ‘Al Bayan’ said police arrested the dealer and four friends who tried to persuade the customs employee to accept the bribe.
