Customs officers yesterday confiscated a large haul of powdered milk being smuggled into the TRNC at the Metehan border crossing.

Forty bags, weighing a total of one tonne, were concealed in a van that was returning back to the North from South Cyprus.

Finance Minister Ersin Tatar said that the operation had “been successful and there would be heavy consequences for the law breakers”.

Opened in 2003, the Metehan (Agios Dometios) crossing is popular as a vehicle border crossing point for trade and serves as the primary crossing for travellers to the TRNC who fly in to Larnaca airport in the South of the island.
