HCM CITY (VNS) — HCM City's Sai Gon Port Customs Division yesterday seized two consignments carrying over 27 tonnes of goods, worth about US$12,000, including banned items being smuggled into the country from China.
According to the division, Trung Hai Import-Export Co Ltd was the owner of the consignments. The company was charged with falsifying the names of many of the goods.
In the consignments, customs officials discovered plastic baby dolls for children under the age of 3, gumball candy and anaesthetic drugs instead of the printing papers, gift boxes, and suitcases listed on the registration documents.
The company had previously been caught illegally importing a large amount of goods in early January. — VNS
