    PUTRAJAYA: The Royal Malaysian Customs Department foiled 3,012 smuggling attempts involving various goods from January to May, says Customs director-general Datuk Anis Rizana Mohd Zainuddin.

    Speaking at the Compliance Verification Audit launch on Wednesday (July 10), she said that the goods included cigarettes, alcohol, and other commodities, with the amount of taxes saved amounting to RM303.9mil, as well as drugs.

    “There have been numerous issues associated with Customs recently, but this has not dampened the department’s spirit and dedication in fulfilling their responsibility,” she said.

    Anis Rizana said Customs has also implemented several initiatives to prevent revenue leakage.

    “We have also modernised customs clearance procedures by using technology and innovation, such as scanners equipped with artificial intelligence technology to streamline processes,” she said.

    Regarding the Compliance Verification Audit, she explained that it is a new audit strategy for the 2024-2026 period. – Bernama
