Clarification on smuggling

Editor, In reference to the article that ran in The New Times of January 13, 2010 under the headline ‘Liquors, wines, most smuggled goods’, Rwanda Revenue Authority would like to correct some the figures. A section of the story indicated, “…That truck was supposed to transport fuel but also had smuggled goods. The estimated revenue from goods seized annually by RRA stands at about Rwf60 to 70 million”. 

Editor,
 
In reference to the article that ran in The New Times of January 13, 2010 under the headline ‘Liquors, wines, most smuggled goods’, Rwanda Revenue Authority would like to correct some the figures.

A section of the story indicated, “…That truck was supposed to transport fuel but also had smuggled goods. The estimated revenue from goods seized annually by RRA stands at about Rwf60 to 70 million”.

However the figure given in the story only represents smuggled liquors and wines which is about Rwf 60m -70m annually and not all smuggled goods as indicated in the story.
