Ghafar mentioned that the enforcement division conducted raids at 12 locations across Perak and Selangor, resulting in the confiscation of vehicles such as Porsche, Lamborghini, and Mercedes-Benz models.

He further stated, “Perak customs also detained 11 people in their 40s to 50s, suspected to be vehicle owners and company owners, to assist in the investigation.” The offences included breaching duty and tax exemption terms, storing luxury vehicles in unlicensed areas, and possessing vehicle numbers in the peninsula for more than 90 days after registration in Langkawi.

Regarding the investigation, Ghafar mentioned that the department was still looking into whether those responsible had import permits. He emphasised the seriousness of smuggling, highlighting its adverse effects on the country’s revenue, national security, and the well-being of its citizens.
