“There are plenty of cases wherein high-end communication and electronic gadgets are smuggled into the country through misdeclaration schemes – a top form of smuggling – used by smugglers to defraud and avoid paying correct duties and taxes to the government,” Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) Director Neil L. Estrella said.

      nasa batas po yan. pag napatunayan na smuggled, sa gobyerno na yan at isusubasta nila.

    Mga bossing, quick clarification lang po,

    Yes, the “Kimstore” that we raided yesterday was the KimStore owned and operated by Kim Lato and family.

    However di lang po limited sa iisang online store ang raid na ito. This is just a part of an ongoing monitoring/raids na ginagawa ng BOC together with other government agencies like BIR and NBI.

    May mga ibang online stores pa na kasalukuyang minomonitor sa ngayon and you will see more of these raids in the upcoming weeks.
