Customs seizes beer worth RM17,532 from crashed lorry

20th May, 2017

By MARLINA MACPEE

LAHAD DATU: The Lahad Datu Customs Department foiled an attempt to smuggle duty-unpaid liquor into the district with the seizure of 11,688 cans of ‘Burge Meester’ beer worth RM17,532 here yesterday.

Sabah Customs Director, Dato’ Dr. Janathan Kandok said the liquor was seized from a lorry which crashed after losing control while going downhill at Jalan Silam at about 4pm.

“A team from the Customs Department found the liquor on the lorry during inspection at the crash site following a public tip-off.

“However, no arrests were made and we are tracing the owner of the lorry involved as a business permit was also found at the scene,” Janathan said in a statement yesterday.

He expressed confidence that investigation into the case could be completed soon.

“All exhibits have been brought to the Lahad Datu Customs Office and with the seizure we managed to recover RM56,803.68 in taxes and unpaid duty.

“The case is being investigated under Section 135 (1) (e) of the Customs Act 1967 which is punishable with a fine of 10 to 20 times the value of the goods or a jail term of not more than three years or both on conviction,” Janathan said.
