Huge amount of surveillance kits recovered from Shahjalal Airport

Acting on a tip-off on October 16, CIB preserved the 19 cartons of products weighing 500 kgs at the main warehouse of Dhaka Customs House as the products bore no identification.

Customs Intelligence Bangladesh (CIB) discovered a large cache of surveillance kits including metal detectors, CCTV cameras and DVR recorders that were, without any official declaration, being released from the airfreight unit of Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.

After scanning the cartons, it was found that the cartons contain security surveillance kits like CCTV camera, metal detector and DVR recorder.

Yesterday the 19 cartons were opened in presence of concerned officials and 430 pieces of CCTV cameras, 200 pieces of hand metal detectors and 55 pieces of DVR recorders were found. The recovered items were listed in the inventory.

Mentionable, as per the Import Policy Order 2015-18, the name and address of the importer must be mentioned on the carton or package of products, but there were no documents bearing the importer’s address on the cartons.

The cartons were seized on October 16, on information that they were brought to the warehouse in order to release unlawfully, without maintaining any customs procedures.

Director General of CIB Moinul Khan said we are going to investigate into the issue thoroughly as the products are security surveillance related. As Bangladesh Biman was the primary custodian of the products, we have requested Biman cargo authorities to supply us detailed information about the cartons.

Mentionable, as per existing rules, after unloading any products from any plane, Biman authorities receive the products and preserve in the warehouse.

“Steps are being taken according to the law to bring the persons who imported the products to dock,” said Mainul.
