ISLAMABAD: Law ministry on Thursday said that they have devised a mechanism to implement recently promulgated anti-smuggling ordinance in the country.

According to the ministry’s spokesman, the mechanism was devised with the cooperation of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) authorities.

Under the process, the Frontier Corps (FC) would be responsible to implement it in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan provinces while Rangers would take action against smugglers in Sindh and Punjab provinces.

Pakistan Coast Guard is also made responsible for anti-smuggling actions under the ordinance.

The ministry said that the notification to enforce the ordinance will be issued on May 04 and the law enforcement authorities would be bound to share data of their actions with the FBR after every two weeks.
