Malaysian Customs successfully uncovered a large-scale cigarette smuggling case with a total value of more than one million yuan. The Inland Revenue Department said it will continue to crack down on smuggling activities.

According to the Malaysian New Straits Times on May 7, the Malaysian Inland Revenue Department successfully seized a batch of smuggled cigarettes worth more than 500,000 Malaysian ringgits (about 800,000 yuan).


According to Norlela Ismail, deputy director of the office of the Malaysian Inland Revenue Department, in the past month, the Malaysian Inland Revenue Department's third department has prevented 15 cases of attempts to smuggle cigarettes to Oceania countries at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. In total, the police have seized 605,500 ringgits, or about 786,000 smuggled cigarettes, including unpaid taxes.


Norlela said that the latest seizure took place on April 15, when the tax department seized 154,000 ringgits (about 250,000 yuan), about 200,000 smuggled cigarettes, also including unpaid taxes.


"By scanning the goods, it was found that the actual goods did not match the declared goods." After further inspection, they found smuggled cigarettes inside. Nurlela added, "These smuggled cigarettes were smuggled into Malaysia without any tax stamp or health warning label on them. This is the latest tactic to smuggle cigarettes and we will continue to work to prevent Malaysia from becoming a transit point for smuggled cigarettes."


In addition, Nurlela also said that the tax department seized 823 kg of beedi cigarettes on April 25, with a total value of 135,600 ringgit, including unpaid taxes. She also said that further inspection showed that the names of the declared importers and consignees were forged.


In another case, Nurlela said that on April 22, the tax department arrested two men in their 30s at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport for trying to smuggle 85.2 kg of chewing tobacco. The six suitcases they brought were found to contain chewing tobacco during inspection. It was found that the two men had entered Malaysia at least five times in the past month, and customs believed that they were a smuggling gang that brought chewing tobacco into Malaysia by way of short trips. The suspects were paid at least 1,000 ringgit for each trip. At present, two suspects have been detained.
