Sell seized sugar through Kadiwa stores – SRA

• GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Sugar Regulatory Administrator David Thaddeus Alba yesterday said that he will recommend the selling of 80,000 confiscated bags of sugar to the public, through the Kadiwa rolling stores.

In a statement, Alba said that he will make representations to President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. to have the sugar sold through Kadiwa so the public “can enjoy refined sugar at a lower cost.”

Operatives of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) seized 4,000 metric tons of sugar, equivalent to 80,000 bags, valued at P240 million, that came from Thailand on MV Sunward at the Batangas Port on January 13.

Alba thanked the BOC enforcement unit and Commissioner Yogi Filemon Ruiz for their “vigilance that led to the seizure of the smuggled sugar.”

He also issued a stern warning against traders who are in cahoots with the smugglers, that the full force of the law will be imposed upon them.

Alba also asked government enforcement agencies to provide them with the necessary information to enable them to go after sugar smugglers.*
