The Berita Harian archive source recorded that on September 15, 2019, there was a cargo detained at the Pelabuhan Air Dalam which was detected carrying agricultural products (Brazilian Corn) from Brazil. Item declared for importing purposes, but the importer does not meet the stipulated Import Permit (IP) requirements. The importer is fined RM50,000 after being convicted.
It may be that the value of RM50,000 is not much compared to the sales return received. But of course, it is better if you can save it than paying a fine of RM50,000!
The act of importing agricultural products without complying with the import conditions as stated in the permit, license and valid certificate is an offence under Section 15 (1) and Section 15 (2) of the Malaysian Quarantine & Inspection Services Act 2011.
