MAQIS Foils Attempt To Smuggle RM12, 480 Worth Of Mandarin Oranges

The Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Department (MAQIS) thwarted an attempt to bring in mandarin orange consignment weighing 1,248 kg via the Sultan Iskandar Building (BSI), yesterday.

Its director, Nur Afifah A Rahman said a Mitsubishi Fuso vehicle carrying the oranges and driven by a 47-year-old local man was stopped at the BSI import cargo lane.

“Further investigations found that the Honey Murcott oranges worth RM12, 480 were in the back portion of the vehicle which was heading to Malaysia from Singapore.

“It was also found that the items did not have a valid import permit from MAQIS and phytosanitary certificate from the country of origin,” she said in a statement here today.

Nur Afifah said the goods were seized for further investigation under Section 11 (1) of the Quarantine and Inspection Services Act 2011 (Act 728). — BERNAMA
