The BOC said the composite team was armed with a letter of authority signed by Customs Commissioner Rey Guerrero when they conducted the inspection.

The BOC said further investigation and inventory are being conducted for possible filing of cases against the yet-to-be-determined owner of the items for the possible violation of Section 1400 of Republic Act No. 10863 or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.

"The apprehension of ukay-ukay in Pasay marks the second apprehension of MICP for the week as the port also apprehended last March 23, 2021, P48 million worth of smuggled cigarettes from China which were declared as cartons, bicycles, and folding tables," BOC said.

“As continuous efforts are implemented to stimulate the economy from the effects of COVID-19, the MICP remains committed to pursuing its mandate to secure the country’s borders from the entry of illegal goods,” it added.—Ma. Angelica Garcia / LDF, GMA News
