    More foreign workers nabbed for peddling illegal cigarettes: Singapore Customs

    These foreign workers would usually look for extra work on social media platforms such as Shi Cheng BBS and WeChat, which is where they get recruited by illegal cigarette syndicates to transport duty-unpaid cigarettes. Some of these workers even use their employers’ vehicles to deliver the illegal goods.

    In one case, Chinese national Zheng Chao Lin, 23, engaged fellow Chinese national Chen Jie, 35, to deliver duty-unpaid cigarettes during his free time. Chen used his employer’s van to make his illegal deliveries.

    Never try to cheat ah gong money. You shall pay back many times the amount you cheated. Is a unwise bet.

    And who are the buyers? ... There won't be any sellers if there were no demand.

    locally don't really dare to buy duty-unpaid cigarettes anymore.

    Maybe all foreigners should be allowed to buy duty-free cigarettes to make singapore more welcoming.

    These Cheena people are so entrepreneurial and willing to take risk. We need more of them. When will PAP give away more shitizenships to these worthy people?

    As foreigners they also face less severe sentences than a Sporean. The PAP gov't would have to answer to the Chinese gov't if they pick on PRC citizens.

    Nothing new, leh. Common knowledge that foreigners very active in Geylang and other parts of sinkie land in criminal activities ... selling illicit drugs, prostitution, ah long harassment, threatening or whacking mata mata, etc.
    Why pappies unable to get rid of these foreign criminals and rogues and get them thrown out of the island?

    If pappies continue to govern the island, it will be soon time travel back to those good old days of 1950s when rogues and thugs used to run amok.

    Better don't be a buyer. Anything above 1 carton can be arrested and jail for 24 hrs and chargeable offence as a seller based on personal experience. The protocol is body search, handcuff, up Mata Chia, go Mata cho, lockup for 3 hrs. Meet io, interrogate as a potential seller. Handover to custom, up custom Chia, transport to custom hq at tj pagar. Lockup in cell. Meet io. Interrogate as seller. Lockup in cell again. Morning meet io, pay composite fine if lucky. Unlucky will be charged in court as seller.

    can't blame the cheenas, as trying to open the door to go outside for a smoke whilst onboard an airplane, they'd risk anything that has to do with cigarettes :D
