Range Rover Seized at KLIA for Lack of Import Permit

The Royal Malaysian Customs Department (JKDM) Central Zone recently confiscated a Land Rover Range Rover SV Auto luxury car at the MasKargo Complex, Free Commercial Zone (FCZ), Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The car, valued at nearly RM2 million, was seized due to its absence of an import permit (AP).

Norlela Ismail, Assistant Director General of Customs for the Selangor Central Zone, disclosed that customs officers inspected the car at around 4 pm at the complex. Suspicions arose regarding its importation without an AP from the Ministry of Trade and Industry Investment (MITI).

Preliminary investigations indicated that the vehicle likely originated from a European country. Its estimated value stands at RM1,097,300, with total duties or taxes amounting to RM1,884,000.

The confiscated car was transported to the KLIA customs enforcement office for further scrutiny. The case is under investigation pursuant to Section 135(1)(a) of the Customs Act 1967, pertaining to the importation of prefabricated motor vehicles without a permit.
