Women’s shoes worth Tk1.1m seized at Dhaka airport
A Customs Intelligence team seized a consignment of women’s’ shoes at Shahjalal International Airport on Tuesday afternoon on charges of tax evasion. The shoes were imported from China under misleading labels to dodge about Tk3.7lakh in taxes. The importer, Great International had paid $1.73 in taxes for every pair of shoe, whereas their actual taxable amount would have been $3. The entire consignment of 184 cartons of shoes was valued at Tk3,14,337. After the importers were forced to appear at the airport to release the shoes, they had to pay Tk7,72,714 including taxes and fines. Customs officials are investigating to find out if any airport officials are involved in helping scrupulous businessmen avoid paying import taxes.
