Indonesian Customs Seizes 1.4 Million Illegal Cigarettes
Indonesia Customs Agency seizes over 1.4 million illegal cigarettes in operation to combat smuggling, resulting in potential losses of over 75 million Indonesian rupiahs.

According to a report by DDTCNews on October 8th, the Indonesian Directorate General of Customs and Excise (DJBC) successfully confiscated at least 1.4 million illicit cigarette units of various brands in an operation called "Crackdown on Illegal Cigarettes".


The Director of the Tax Agency, Arif Setijo Noegroho, stated in a press conference, "We have obtained leads regarding the suspected illegal smuggling of cigarettes in this truck." To verify this information, the relevant team conducted a thorough search of the road and successfully chased down and intercepted the implicated truck.


An inspection team has discovered 40,000 packs of illegal cigarettes without tax stamps. Prior to this, the tax authority successfully seized two small passenger vehicles carrying 520,000 illicit cigarettes. These cigarettes are estimated to be worth 1.1 billion Indonesian rupiah (approximately 510,000 yuan) and could potentially cause a national loss of 750 million Indonesian rupiah (approximately 340,000 yuan).
