The request by the Customs Department to buy an X-ray van to scan luggage has been approved by OLAF.

In a statement, Customs said that it made this request for funds under the Hercule III programme.

This new van is expected to be used at the Malta International Airport and costs €300,000.

The request was passed by the EU evaluation board which recommended that the Maltese Customs should be given 90% of the expenses.
