Used Truck Trader Van Opened To Reveal Expensive Cars 12/01/2008

Illegal smuggling has become an issue at the Philippine port of Cebu International. A number of vans said to be containing used truck parts were opened to reveal numerous used trucks and cars from Korea. Instead of containing the parts of a used truck trader, the vans were full of the vehicles from a Korean shipment which had arrived the prior December, as well as containing used household items, and personal belongings.


This is not the first instance of used trucks being used as carriers for prohibited goods into the port, and shipments from Japan, again declared in customs as being the replacement parts of a used truck trader, were in fact expensive new and used trucks and cars.


Despite the contents of the vans being declared as containing used truck replacement parts, they may have been carrying the load of used trucks and cars so as to evade the taxes and charges enforced by the Philippine government. Should the used trucks and cars be forfeited to the government in light of illegal tax evasion and illegal smuggling laws, the used truck and cars will be auctioned off, with monetary proceeds going back into the Philippine Port of Cebu.
