Another Saudi man in September stashed 12 bottles of booze in special pockets stitched into his trousers and then covered with a traditional white robe
A similar technique was adopted by another Saudi man last September, who stashed the booze in special pockets stitched into his trousers, which he then covered with the tunic.
Customs officials became suspicious of the man after noticing he was walking oddly as he re-entered the Saudi Arabia from Bahrain.
Alcohol is illegal in Saudi Arabia and as a result there are tough penalties such as public flogging or long detention for anyone caught trying to break the law.
Last week, Saudi customs seized two shipments of liquor from Bahrain, including 415 bottles concealed in various parts of a vehicle and 83l of liquor hidden inside the fuel tank reserve of a truck.
In October, a British man was caught with homemade wine and faced public lashing.
Karl Andree, 74, was arrested by Saudi religious police and spent more than a year in prison. He was spared flogging because of his age and ill-health.
Though alcohol is illegal throughout the Gulf kingdom, many expats have taken to brewing their own alcohol, which is largely consumed inside Western compounds.www.dailymail.co.uk/Linkback: https://tubagbohol.mikeligalig.com/index.php?topic=81785.0
