RANTAU PANJANG, 20 July 2022 – Anti-Drugs Border Unit (UAS) of the National Anti-drugs Agency (NADA) plays a role in combating drug abuse activities at the nation’s borders.

Along with meeting the current demands, the UAS is still working harder to conduct periodic inspections in each country, especially Malaysia-Thailand, to make sure there are no drug addicts or abusers there.

Omnipresence programmes, Home Visits to Clients in the Community homes, and awareness campaigns are all being implemented as part of ongoing prevention and law enforcement efforts to combat the problem of drug addiction.

Azmi Mustafa, the Director of NADA’s Enforcement and Security Division, observed how the UAS at the Immigration, Customs, Quarantine and Security Complex (ICQS) in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan, were being used.
