Customs crackdown on contraband
Santo Domingo.- The Customs Department (DGA) is implementing a new supervision system for counteracting contraband, consisting of vigilance on highways, roads and on the border across the Dominican Republic, using mobile units
Customs director Fernando Fernández said that the new system is showing good results and that they will go on strengthening it on the highways in order to monitor the movement of vehicles carrying goods from ports and airports.
On the border, Fernández said that there had been no increase in contraband in the region as a consequence of the ban imposed by the Haitian authorities on several Dominican products.
The Customs Department says it has collected an additional RD$3 billion in the first half of 2013, or 10% more compared collections for the same period in 2012.
