‘Raid proves drugs
smuggled with sugar'

The Sugar Alliance of the Philippines is calling for government action against the smuggling of sugar, which is often comingled with drugs, sugar leader Manuel Lamata said yesterday.

Lamata, who is the president of the United Sugar Producers Federation of the Philippines, said their intelligence reports on drugs being comingled with sugar shipments was confirmed by a recent raid in Davao City that led to the death of seven suspected drug traders.

“We at the alliance congratulate Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte for a job well done in the campaign against smuggling,” he said.moremoremore

House hears BIR
move on industry

The House Committee on Ways and Means tackled BIR Revenue Regulations 13-2013, which amends its previous definition of raw sugar, at a hearing on Monday, Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3 rd District), said yesterday.

Benitez had earlier filed House Resolution 394 directing the Committee on Ways and Means to investigate, in aid of legislation, the issuance of BIR RR 13-2013.

The BIR regulation being questioned basically left Muscovado as the only type of sugar that is exempted from VAT, he said. moremoremore
