PUTRAJAYA: An attempt to smuggle animal products at KLIA2 a few days ago has been foiled by the Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Services Department (Maqis) and the Customs Department.
Maqis’ Selangor director Mohd Sobri Md Hashim said Maqis confiscated the products weighing 20kg and estimated to be worth RM200, from a Chinese national in his 30s.
The animal products were detected when his luggage went through JKDM’s scanning equipment at 6.30am.
“The consignment contained eight kilogrammes of duck and 12kg of raw beef sausages, which carries a risk of bringing diseases into the country,” he said in a statement, Bernama reported.
He said the animal products were confiscated for not having an import permit and valid health and halal certificates.
