| Fbr Take Punitive Action Against Smuggled Vehicles |
ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has directed its field offices to identify smuggled vehicles and other items and take punitive action against all those involved in such crimes.
At the behest of FBR Chairman Syed Shabbar Zaidi, the Customs Wing has issued instructions to all of its field formations to transport smuggled goods through certification from the Forensic Science Laboratory. All forms used should be verified, excise and taxation registration database and customs clearance documents
Field formations are further advised to initiate separate legal proceedings if such transport is smuggled or found with a tamper number. These directives will help greatly in eliminating the smuggling network that is being used to transport smuggled goods.
According to the recommendations of the Prime Minister’s Steering Committee on Anti-Trafficking, Pakistan Customs is the most important anti-trafficking organization in the country, which has resulted in accelerated enforcement operations with other law enforcement agencies.
