The Royal Oman Police has warned Omanis against the use of firecrackers, as Eid Al Fitr approaches.
Lt. Col. Khalid Al Yahyai, Director of Customs of the Governorate of North Batinah, said that the police are tightening control over all customs outlets.
This is being done to prevent any attempt to smuggle this kind of explosives (firecrackers) into the Sultanate.
The Colonel also stressed that the law criminalised any attempt to introduce or smuggle explosives, as well as the trade of fireworks.
