The Bureau of Customs-Port of Cagayan de Oro again seized four (4) containers of smuggled agricultural products containing red and white onions estimated to be worth Php 12,000,000 at Mindanao Container Terminal Port, PHIVIDEC Compound, Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental on July 19, 2022.


In a press release, the BOC stated that the shipment which arrived from China last July 12, 2022 was consigned to Primex Export and Import Producer and declared to be “Spring Roll Patti” as indicated in its Inward Foreign Manifest.


However, during the conduct of examination by BOC officials and representatives of CIIS-CDO, ESS-CDO, CCBI, BPI, MICTSI, and PDEA, among others, the shipment was found out to contain red and white onions instead prompting BOC to issue a Warrant of Seizure and Detention (WSD) for violation of Section 1400 of RA 10863 or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.
