BOC seizes P4-M carrots trafficked from China
MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) announced on Thursday that smuggled carrots from China worth PHP4 million were seized at the Manila International Container Port (MICP).
The two cargoes confiscated on Tuesday were consigned to Silverpop Dry Goods Trading and declared to contain 2,600 cartons of steamed buns, according to Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS)-MICP chief Alvin Enciso.
A certain Nemesio Asan Blancaflor Jr. was identified as the broker for the supplies that arrived in the nation on June 6.
He said the operation was carried out after getting negative information about misdeclared agricultural products being brought into the port.
Following the receipt of the information, the team requested that a special stop order be issued, which was signed by MICP District Collector Romy Allan Rosales, to check the shipment, which led to the finding of the smuggled carrots.
“Because of intelligence from our dependable informants, the bureau was able to intercept a number of unlawful shipments.” This is why, in order to further cement our fight against smuggling, we must empower and expand our intelligence-gathering capabilities,” he stated.
The trading company and Blancaflor will be charged with agricultural smuggling, as well as violations of Sections 117 (regulated importation and exportation) and 1400 (misdeclaration) of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act in relation to Section 1113 (property subject to seizure and forfeiture).
