Turtle eggs caught by immigration

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 7, 2008

An attempt by smugglers to bootleg turtle eggs, medicinal products, and contraband were foiled by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority and the Singapore Customs at the Marina Wharf last Saturday.

Routine inspection was being performed on the cargo vessel MV Penguin Indoraya II on Saturday afternoon when the officers detected suspected prohibited Indonesian traditional medicine, an assortment of Jamu, amongst declared consignment goods of two consignees.

Another group of officers detected boxes of turtle eggs, while yet another group uncovered four boxes of duty-unpaid cigaretes. (story)
