Rice rage

Manila: Customs on the central island of Cebu are this week rifling though around 1,000 teu suspected to contain smuggled rice from Vietnam.

Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon said the cargo was misdeclared as stone slabs, granite slabs and cooling insulators.
“If there are proven violations, they will recommend the issuance of a warrant of seizure and detention,” Biazon explained to local media.  [22/04/13]
