    During the last year the mobile units were deployed on all sections of the state border. As a result, people who were illegally held in inhuman conditions were released, an unlawful tobacco processing and manufacturing company was detained, cars with smuggled goods were detained, illegally migrated and their shippers repeatedly detained, etc.

    It should be noted that the reform is being carried out with the material and technical assistance of the U.S. Embassy.
