Gold smuggling: NIA to prove terrorist links through Rabins

faisal

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The deportation of the main accused Rabins, is an indication that the UAE is cooperating with the gold smuggling case while protecting diplomats at the consulate. The NIA says Faisal Fareed, who was arrested in Dubai, will be deported within two weeks. This is in the midst of the ongoing UAE investigation into attempts to discredit the UAE's diplomatic system and tarnish the country's image through the smuggling using forged documents.


With the acquisition of Rabins, the mystery around the transactions made in the UAE for gold smuggling will be soon unfolded. All the gangs who smuggled gold into Kerala by accepting money from terrorists and forging UAE documents will be traced soon. From July 2019 to June 30, 230 kg of gold was smuggled 23 times through the diplomatic channel. It will cost Rs 104 crore in the UAE.

Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act on gold smuggling can be maintained only if the ways of money laundering are found. The NIA is trying to find this out from Rabbin.

The investigation team also needs to find some more Malayalees who were involved in gold smuggling. The baggage caught by the Customs at the Thiruvananthapuram airport was sent from the address Faisal Fareed, PO Box 31456, Villa No.-5, Al-Rashida, Dubai. In addition to the official emblem of the UAE and the sticker on the diplomatic bag, the airway bill stated that it was diplomatic baggage. This cannot be pulled off by just one person. The information must first be reported to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Ministry should submit a letter to the airline. The diplomatic bag for Thiruvananthapuram was handled by Emirates, the official airline of the UAE, and their Skycargo. The "Bill of Entry" should be checked to find out who sent the gold bag.
