Subic Anti-smuggling team says P50M in goods seized

A TOTAL of P50 million worth of smuggled goods have been seized by Task Force Subic in a period of two months since President Macapagal-Arroyo created the task force and declared an all-out war against smuggling in the country.

In his accomplishment report to SBMA Chair Francisco Licuanan and Administrator Alfredo Antonio, Task Force Director Jose Calimlim, a retired general, reported at least 10 cases of apprehension involving smuggling of luxury vehicles, automotive spare parts, appliances, household items, jewelry and various second-hand vehicles.

"I am here to enforce and implement the order of our President for the sake of our government and country," Calimlim said in his statement.

The task force, a composite team with members from the Armed Forces, the Intelligence Services, the Bureau of Customs, Philippine National Police and the Department of Justice, is the anti-smuggling operations arm of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

Calimlim also credited the Bureau of Customs Port of Subic which is headed by District Collector Atty. Marletta Zamoranos, for vigilance and support in the anti-smuggling campaign
