Singapore Customs (SC) released a statement on Monday (9 April) informing that more than 25 smokers were caught with duty-unpaid cigarettes and issued with composition sums.

The agency stated that officers in plain clothes were out in the Central Business District on 6 April 2018, keeping a close watch on smokers of duty-unpaid cigarettes.

In a Facebook post, SC noted that it conducts such operations island-wide to suppress the demand for duty-unpaid cigarettes.

The agency stated that composition sum for a first-time offender who has up to one packet of duty-unpaid cigarettes in his possession is $500. Heavier penalties will apply if he is found with more than one packet of duty-unpaid cigarettes and/or if he is a repeat offender.
