According to the report, the consignment was sent from Hong Kong to Burias Jang Consumer Goods Trading. During the physical examination of Ener 11, however, they determined that the damaged cargo contained refined sugar worth P23,847,000.

The Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service-MICP (CIIS-MICP) requested the issuing of an alert order (AO) on a shipment consigned to Burias Jang Consumer Goods Trading on December 2, according to the BOC. PDEA K9 paneling and a minor baggage x-ray are now being performed on the package.

The BOC has learned that the consignee would face charges for a possible violation of Section 1400 (misdeclaration in goods declaration) of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act, which is related to Section 1113 (property susceptible to seizure and forfeiture).
