PRC ‘FTs’ jailed for helping to convey contraband cigarettes

Posted by temasektimes on July 12, 2012

Three male PRC ‘FTs’ were jailed seven to 17 months for their involvement in contraband cigarette activities.

They reportedly tried to ferry more than 9,000 cigarettes via an open-top lorry in June this year.

The total value of these duty-unpaid cigarettes meant for distribution to various parts of Singapore amounted to more than S$92,000.

The duty and Goods and Services Tax (GST) involved exceeded S$68,000 and S$6,400 respectively.

Investigations revealed that Yao, who was employed as an electrician, and Zhang Yong, 40, employed as a driver, were hired to deliver the contraband cigarettes concealed in the heaters to Wang, a mechanic, and Hong at Kranji Road.

    17 months is lenient. My client was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment. It was his first offence.

  7. Why we love F Trash ?

  8. Coming to a different Country they should behave themselves. They should have taken advantage of the hospitalbilty given and not to cause trouble to the the Country that accepted them and not to create social problems instead.
