smugglers prosecuted

Smugglers, who facilitate the illegal entry of imported sugar comingled with illegal drugs, should be arrested and prosecuted by law enforcement agencies, Sugar Regulatory Administrator Ma. Regina Martin, said yesterday.

The Sugar Alliance of the Philippines had earlier called on the government for action against the smuggling of sugar, which is often comingled with drugs.

Martin said this only goes to show how strong the partnership between SRA and non-government organizations is, and that they have one goal, and that is to protect the sugar industry.moremoremore
