Bureau of Customs, through the Intelligence Group (IG) and the Manila International Container Port-Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS), discovered misdeclared, and undervalued Lamborghini Aventador in a physical examination conducted on 23 March 2022 at the Port.
The discovery of the smuggled luxury vehicle stemmed from derogatory information received from IG alerting the MICP-CIIS Field Station for a possible smuggling attempt. An alert order was immediately issued by District Collector Romeo Allan Rosales through the request of the Field Station against the subject shipment.
Based on its shipping documents, the shipment arrived on 23 February 2022 from Hong Kong consigned to JRQ Car Trading and was declared as 1 unit brand new Lamborghini Huracan.
The estimated value of the seized luxury vehicle is P45,000,000.00.
A Warrant of Seizure and Detention shall be issued against the shipment for violation of Section 1400 concerning Section 1113 of R.A. 10863 or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act (CMTA)
