    This seem genuine stuff, importer must be ignorant of certain customs of these authorities. The drug dealers know how to entertain in order to get their cargo released.

    These could be disributed to the school children who will listen to the President's speach on friday.

    the undertaker Monday, 15 November 2010 02:35 PM

    May be the importer was trying to clear with help of a corrupt customs guy

    Anemagekata Monday, 15 November 2010 02:56 PM

    This must be a new importer who probably did not know whose palms are to be oiled.

    YURI Monday, 15 November 2010 03:11 PM

    I just wonder where was the Cusoms guys who were set up to clear these things. try next time...

    Angoda Sene Monday, 15 November 2010 03:57 PM

    Why not give to charity so that the poor kid will have something .

    If this is properly done and no subsequent waivers are granted as political favours GOSL can collect a lot of money
