Contraband worth RM208,000 seized under Ops Letup

RANTAU PANJANG Oct 31 - Customs officers seized smuggled items worth RM208,924 in a week under "Ops Letup" launched in conjunction with the festive season.

In the latest seizure on Sunday, State Customs Director Che Jamil Ahmad said RM42,268 worth of rice, firecrackers, batik cloth and kretek cigarettes were confiscated at the Pasir Emas Market here at about noon.

He said the 40-member raiding party also arrested two men, in their 40s, believed to be selling smuggled goods.

He said the men were detained to facilitate investigations under Section 135(1)(d) of the Customs Act 1967 and are liable to RM10,000 fine or 10 times the value of the seized goods or a jail term of not more than five years or both, upon conviction.

He said the raid was conducted following information that smuggled goods were being sold at the market.

"It is believed the items were smuggled in from Thailand except for the Gudang Garam kretek cigarettes brought in from Indonesia," he said.

"Ops Letup" was launched on Oct 25 to thwart smuggling activities, especially firecrackers and rice in large quantities, for the festive season.

The operation will end on Friday.
