The Technical Secretariat of the 99th Customs Disputes Approval Commission reported that, during the period from 04 May to 13 June 2017, it had registered 520 cases, which had resulted in compromised or evaded duties in the amount of CFAF 343.6 million and fines of CFAF 527.6 million.
The Commissioners observed a decrease in the number of files transmitted by the Coastal Customs Sector I, from 407 to 218 for this session. That is a difference of 189 cases and a bearish rate of 46.43%.
On the other hand, there is an increase in the number of files forwarded by the Littoral II Customs Sector from 73 to 150 for the present session, ie an additional 77 files for a rate of 105.47%.
In the other Customs sectors, the strength in the contentious activity of active units, observed at the previous session, is confirmed again. Of the 145 files transmitted, 102 come from active units versus 43 for sedentary units. Kousséri, Banyo, Yaoundé-Nsimalen and Guider’s secondary offices occupy the top four places in the ranking of sedentary units, in terms of number of files, fines, fees compromised and evaded.
In terms of active units, the Mobile Brigades of Maroua, Ngaoundéré, Meiganga and Yaoundé are at the top of this ranking, according to the secretariat.
