The Ngurah Rai Airport Customs office report that drug smuggling cases detected at Bali's airport decreased in 2012.

Quoted by the National News Agency Antara, I Made Wijaya, the head of supervision and services for the Bali Airport Customs office, said: ďThe trend (of narcotics cases) is declining, and we like that. I hope that next year there are no cases.Ē

According to Wijaya, the decline in narcotic smuggling cases shows that Customís officers are maintaining a close watch over Baliís only international air gateway.

Customs officials report 9 cases of drug smuggling in 2012, down from 2012 (12) and 2010 (17).

The 9 cases in 2012 involved 10.45 kilograms of narcotics while the 12 cases in 2011 accounted for 17.318 kilograms of drugs.

The most common types of narcotics confiscated at Baliís airport are methamphetamines and cocaine.

The number of people arrested on narcotics charges at Baliís airport in 2012 also reduced with 9 arrests made in 2012, 19 in 2011, and 24 in 2011.

Wijaya rejected a questions from the press asking if the reduction in arrests in 2012 was due in part to the massive renovation being carried out at the airport, insisting that his team had the facility under tight supervision.
