67 ISRAELIS ARRESTED OVERSEAS FOR KHAT-SMUGGLING
In the 11 months since Israeli citizens were first arrested overseas for khat-smuggling, the number has reached 67 with no end in sight, according to the Foreign Ministry.
Ziv Shalvi, an official at the Foreign Ministry Department of Israelis Abroad Consular Affairs Division, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that an arrest was likely made on Thursday in Barcelona, and that three more Israelis were arrested in Paris on Sunday, on the eve of Sukkot.
Shalvi added that there were expectations that around another 20 female, adolescent smugglers were on the way in the near future, and that the actual number of smugglers to date could easily be over 100.
