Various counterfeit products, such as clothes and cosmetics, worth P740 million were discovered in two warehouses in Manila and Pasay recently, the Bureau of Customs (BOC) said Friday. The bureau’s intelligence group inspected the two warehouses where the fake items were reportedly being stored before their distribution to the local market. Fake branded footwear, wearing apparels, cosmetics, toys, and cellphone accessories were uncovered in a warehouse located in Baclaran, Pasay City in the first raid on May 21. It stemmed from a tip that the warehouse was storing fake goods that would be sold in the market, according to the bureau. In a follow-inspection a week later, various smuggled and unregistered medical products were then seized in a warehouse in Sta. Cruz in Manila. The items discovered on the first warehouse were seized for violating Republic Act (R.A.) no. 8293 or the Intellectual Property (IP) Code of the Philippines; and Section 118 (f) of RA 10863, otherwise known as the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act (CMTA) of 2016.Lear More
Even as the Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday filed a report in a special CBI court on a gold smuggling episode in which a Customs Officer has been arrested among others, there came a new twist with the RAW and NIA beginning a probe as well. The National Investigation Agency and Research and Analysis Wing launched their respective probe after one of the arrested, a beautician with business in Dubai, was found to have alleged links with a Pakistani involved in gold smuggling. Even though it was the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) who effected the arrest of the carriers, the case is now being investigated by the CBI and there is said to be a criminal conspiracy involved. For the past six months, the DRI had been keeping a close tab on the airport. The CBI in its report has alleged that the key conspirator was Customs Superintendent V. Radhakrishnan, who has now been arrested. During April, there was an increased flow of gold. The DRI last month arrested a beautician along with a carrier who came with 25 kilograms of gold at the airport here.Lear More
