Hong Kong Customs and the Australian Border Force mounted a joint operation against drug trafficking between the two places by air mail from October 16 to 29.

During the operation, a total of 14 cases of trafficking drugs from Hong Kong to Australia were detected with a seizure of about 30 kilograms of suspected dangerous drugs, including khat leaves, gamma-Butyrolactone and mephedrone. The estimated market value of the seizure is about $400,000.

To combat international drug trafficking activities, Hong Kong Customs will continue to step up co-operation with overseas law enforcement agencies through intelligence exchange and joint operations.
