The Special Striking Team and the Custom Anti-Narcotics officers of the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) have seized 32 million rolling papers at the Plaisance Air Transport Service (PATS) parcel office in Plaine-Magnien.

The package, said to be worth Rs 700 million, arrived on flight MK 852 from Johannesburg on Sunday 9 October. It was reportedly imported by a company located in Floréal – its name has been retained.

According to l’Express newspaper, a broker was arrested in the wake of the investigation. He reportedly told investigators that the shipment was only in transit in Mauritius.

The importer is expected to be quizzed soon for breach of Supply Control Act – rolling paper is considered as a prohibited product in Mauritius.
