JAKARTA (JP): East Nusa Tenggara Police complained on Sunday over the difficulties to curb fuel smuggling from the province to East Timor by sea due to organized criminal group in the border region, Antara reported.
"It is difficult to eradicate smuggling because people in the border region had been engaged in these illegal activities," Belu military chief Lt. Col. Tjuk Agus Minahasa said.
He called on his counterparts in East Timor to take part in the fuel smuggling eradication.
The soaring price of fuel and utiltiy in the tiny country has triggered smugglers in East Nusa Tenggara to sell the materials from the province to East Timor illegally.
