Contraband cigarettes were reportedly seized from the Kwai Chung port on two consecutive days

Some 10.2 million sticks of Philippines-bound suspected illicit cigarettes with a market value of $28 million have been seized by Hong Kong Customs at Kwai Chung Port.
The cigarettes seized on Mar 18 had a duty potential of about $19 million.
Officers inspecting the seaborne transshipment container from Cambodia to the Philippines said its manifest declared it as a consignment of stationeries.

A day earlier, about 400,000 sticks of suspected smuggled cigarettes valued at $1 million were intercepted by Customs at Shenzhen Bay Control Point. The duty potential from the illicit haul was $700,000.
Customs officers found the contraband inside 47 cartons mix-loaded with other goods on the truck.
