BOC seizes smuggled sugar at port


The Bureau of Customs seized eight containers of smuggled sugar estimated to cost P4.4 million at the Port of Manila on Wednesday.

The seized sugar, that arrived at the South Harbor on August 30 from China, was consigned to RZTREC Trading, a BOC report said yesterday.

The shipments were declared to contain steel coils, but the Customs Examiner found Korach Conditioned Refined Sugar, it added.

BOC-Port of Manila immediately issued a Warrant of Seizure and Detention (WSD) against the shipment for violation of Section 1400 “Misdeclaration, Misclassification and Undervaluation in Goods Declaration,” in relation to Section 1113 “Property Subject to Seizure and Forfeiture,” and Section 117 “Regulated Importation and Exportation” of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act, the BOC said.*
