This article is reported by the ICA – Immigration & Checkpoint Authority today.
ICA officers conducted checks on a 40-footer container at a warehouse in Tuas on 11 Mar, at about 1.30pm. The container was earlier presented for clearance at the Pasir Panjang Scanning Station, where officers detected anomalies in the scanned images of the consignment declared to contain ten “Game Machines”. The container was sealed for checks at the trader’s premises.
During the course of checks, the officers noticed the game machines were locked. This further aroused the officers’ suspicion and they proceeded to pry open a game machine for closer examination. Officers found the interior of the game machine to be hollow and contained duty-unpaid cigarettes wrapped in several black bundles. A total of 6,000 cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes were seized. The case was handed over to Singapore Customs for further investigation.
