37 year old Khalil Sadegh Harrus- a businessman from Libya – was fined €8,000 and given a two year jail sentence suspended for four years after he pleaded guilty of trying to export illegally 112,500 shotgun cartridges to Libya.

He as also charged with trying to export these cartridges without the necessary police permit and with infringing the sanctions imposed by the United Nations against Libya.

The cartridges were found last August by customs officials hidden in containers carrying Red Bull energy drinks while they were being loaded in containers to be exported to Libya. The cartridges cost €38,896.

The police are questioning several other persons in connection with this case and they are expected to be arraigned in court in the coming days.
