GGCA says it supports Customs membership in apprehending suspected smugglers, highlights dangers involved

The GGCA says it fully supports its Customs membership in apprehending suspected smugglers. The union claims smugglers consistently undertake this criminal behaviour with an “at all costs” attitude, with no intention to stop when Customs officers attempt to apprehend them.

It would like to remind the public that if it were not for the relentless efforts of Customs officers to control the nocturnal smuggling trend, the criminal activity would escalate, resulting in an unsafe and undesirable environment for the whole community.

The GGCA would therefore like to express its support for its Custom’s membership especially after last week’s incident where an officer was injured as a consequence of chasing suspected smugglers.
